Desmond Tutu: Arizona: The Wrong Answer

Desmond Tutu: Arizona: The Wrong Answer

I am saddened today at the prospect of a young Hispanic immigrant in Arizona going to the grocery store and forgetting to bring her passport and immigration documents with her. I cannot be dispassionate about the fact that the very act of her being in the grocery store will soon be a crime in the state she lives in. Or that, should a policeman hear her accent and form a "reasonable suspicion" that she is an illegal immigrant, she can -- and will -- be taken into custody until someone sorts it out, while her children are at home waiting for their dinner.

Equally disturbing is what will happen in the mind of the policeman. The police talk today about how they do not wish to, and will not, engage in racial profiling. Yet faced with the option of using common sense and compassion, or harassing a person who has done nothing wrong, a particularly sinister aspect of Arizona's new immigration law will be hanging over his head. He can be personally sued, by anyone, for failing to enforce this inhumane new act.

Experts: GOP Plan To Change Citizenship Rights Is 'Clearly Unconstitutional' | TPMDC

Earlier this week, we told you about Rep. Duncan Hunter's (R-CA) support for deporting natural born American citizens whose parents are illegal immigrants. That position is based on a Republican proposal to stop granting citizenship rights to such children.

According to two constitutional law experts, that's "clearly unconstitutional."

To explain Hunter's comment, the congressman's spokesperson pointed TPM to a bill, co-sponsored by more than 90 House Republicans, including Hunter, that would eliminate citizenship rights for children born in the U.S. whose parents are illegal immigrants.

The 14th Amendment states that "All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside."

Anti-Immigration Flyer: Mexicans Want To Kill 'Gringos' | TPMMuckraker

In another sign of the heightened tensions surrounding illegal immigration in Arizona, a far-right anti-immigration group is stoking fears of a violent Mexicans out to murder white people -- and invoking hard-line sheriff Joe Arpaio -- in a bid to raise money. The group's leader tells TPMmuckraker that in the wake of Arizona's draconian new immigration law, "the irresistible force of globalism and the Mexican invasion is about to meet the immovable object of American sovereignty."

A fundraising flyer sent this month by the American Border Patrol -- a group of anti-immigration advocates who conduct airplane missions to monitor the Arizona-Mexico border -- leads with a quote attributed to Jose Angel Gutierrez, the founder of La Raza: "We have got to eliminate the gringo. And what I mean is, if worse comes to worst, we have got to kill him." Above the quote is a picture of an immigrants rights protest, including a prominent banner declaring: "We Are Indigenous, The Only Owners Of This Continent." (See the flyer here.)

Steve Sailer's iSteve Blog: How many serious white girlfriends has Obama had?

Steve Sailer just can't stand to see our First Family being happy. Poor Steve.

Steve Sailer's iSteve Blog: How many serious white girlfriends has Obama had?: "As you'll recall, one of the most stylized, fable-like sections of the President's Dreams from My Father is the when Obama describes to his half sister Auma the serious girlfriend he had in New York (where he lived from 1981-1985), whom he dumped because she was white, and not only white but old money WASP. As several commenters have noted, the whole episode sounds like it was lifted from a white ethnic writer like Mario Puzo or Philip Roth."

One man set this racist Sailer guy straight:

"Steve has got to be unique in the HBD community as a guy whose regular complaints about black men is that they don't f*ck enough white women.

My personal preference would be for women to hold on to their virtue and remain more or less sexually innocent until they meet "the one" but even if Steve is a libertine (which I doubt he is) how strange is it that he's so incessently hurt by black men who stick with black women? What in God's name could possibly explain that far out perspective?

The fact that the nations first black (and even competant and intelligent even though he's adoreed by Blacks!) president is married to a dark black woman is VERY VERY good and I really don't get why Steve keeps looking this gift horse in the mouth. Just be happy and get on with it. It's good for your daughter, my friend."

This one is from Truth:

'"even if Steve is a libertine (which I doubt he is) how strange is it that he's so incessently hurt by black men who stick with black women? What in God's name could possibly explain that far out perspective?"

Great observation. Take it from me though, not unusual; I would say that the majority of white males are angrier at a black man who does not date white women than one who does...but the thing that makes white guys want to fight is when you date an Asian. I could tell you some stores...

Truth said...

"Of course, I do recognize you as the guy who every now and then tries to rebut Steve's finding with "you see everything through a racial prism, Mr. Sailer" and nothing else."

What makes you think it's always the same "guy."

"Is it so strange that a half-white guy might be attracted to white women?"

Well Cordelia; is it so strange that a half-black guy might be attracted to black women, and got his wife pregnant twice through natural means?

"Does anybody know about GWB's girlfriends? Or John Kerry? Why do you all find the silence on Obama so weird?"

Thank you for calling out racist Steve Sailer's incessant obsession with Black men's relationships.  Contrary to media and some HBDers, overwhelming marjority of Black men are married to Black women period.  It's getting pathetic.

REAL “Genetic Based Dating Tips” For STEM (Read, White, Nerdy) Guys « The Obsidian Files: "A little while earlier, OneSTDV says the following:
“Quick Dating/Game tip for Betas:
If you intend on scoring women significantly above you in dating market value (i.e. physically attractive), then focus on dating prospects within your own ethnicity . This is an especially efficacious strategy for Greeks, Jews, and Russians as these groups have extant cultural, religious, and social edifices solely comprised of peer ethnics. I would include Italians as they’ve maintained themselves as a distinct group, but Italian women are primarily attracted to alphas, per Jersey Shore ."

heterosis « mulatto diaries

heterosis « mulatto diaries: "heterosis
April 16, 2010 by tiffdjones
This strikes me as complete and utter bull****. Excuse me, bologna is more appropriate for this forum. I just don’t see how you can conduct a scientific study based on personal opinion. Perceived attractiveness is not a science. I have a theory that mixed race people have an interesting look, for lack of a better way to put it."

I agree with Mulatto Diaries on this one. I'm sick of the media dividing Black and Multiracial people of African descent. It's disgusting.

Holocaust Survivor – Why I Support Palestinian Rights

Weiss: Holocaust Survivor – Why I Support Palestinian Rights

In Canada, Holocaust Memorial Day has been established by Heritage Canada to be on April 11. It is a good opportunity to review what we learn from the Holocaust experience and how we apply these lessons to the troubled situation in the Middle East.

This year, students in more than 60 cities took part in educational meetings on conditions in Palestine as part of Israeli Apartheid Week, held March 1–7. It is a controversial event, not popular in Canadian government circles. It is criticized for supposedly dishonouring the victims of Hitler’s holocaust.

I am a survivor of the Jewish Holocaust, the Nazis’ mass murder of Europe’s Jews. The tragic experience of my family and community under Hitler makes me alert to the suffering of other peoples denied their human rights today – including the Palestinians.

True, Hitler’s Holocaust was unique. The Palestinians are victims of ethnic cleansing and apartheid. Hitler started with that, but went on to extermination. In my family’s city in Poland, Piotrkow, 99% of the Jews perished.

Yet for me, the Israeli government’s actions toward the Palestinians awaken horrific memories of my family’s experiences under Hitlerism: the inhuman walls, the check points, the daily humiliations, killings, diseases, the systematic deprivation. There’s no escaping the fact that Israel has occupied the entire country of Palestine, and taken most of the land, while the Palestinians have been expelled, walled off, and deprived of human rights and human dignity.

How Many Americans Does It Take to Slaughter a Third World Child? by Jay Janson

Disturbing eye-rebounding videos and on-the-scene, cringing to watch or read, graphic reports of civilians dying at the hands of U.S. military in Afghanistan, Iraq and Pakistan — resurfacing again on network and radio newscasts, in some newspapers and of course, as always, on the Internet.

As in the past, they bring a certain amount of world reaction in concern and condemnation with the more intense pain and outrage reserved for the children’s lives taken. The president of Afghanistan, elected under US military occupation, after years complaining and protesting uselessly, warns of his own possible defection over the "indiscriminate killing by foreign armed forces" among other issues.

How many Americans have been involved in the collateral slaying of children in America’s wars and bombings within defenseless populations of the so called underdeveloped world since the end of World War Two?

How much effort, by how many Americans, has gone into producing each child’s violent death during undeclared wars in Third World nations? Some innocent child made poor and disadvantaged for its country’s history of brutal colonial occupation and plunder by industrial powers that continue to exploit through neocolonialist financial oppression, killed by foreign invaders of American nationality.
