Andrea Christina Nill: Though Kellar insists his remarks weren’t intended to “express animosity towards non-whites,” local Democrats describe Kellar’s comments as “symbolic of the Republican Party’s attitudes toward immigration in general.” The rally was organized by several California anti-immigrant groups including the Santa Clarita Valley Independent Minutemen, the Santa Clarita Tea Party, and designated hate group Save Our State.

Obama’s Nobel Speech Comes Up Short. Pardon me if I can’t join in the fawning praise for President Obama’s Nobel address. “It was, as ever, a bravura performance,” one newspaper said editorially. That it was, but I can’t agree with those. -Carl Bloice Labor Secretary Solis Slams Down Right-Wing Call for an Immigration Moratorium. Last [...]

Our present immigration policy is a disaster for all American workers. It is one that benefits Oligarchs in the United States, Mexico, China, primarily, and other places in the world like Ireland, to a lesser extent. In the specific case of Mexico, since that’s where most of the heat and so little light is being placed in this argument.

160 years and the chickens are coming home to roost, and instead of letting loud white supremacists shout down attempts at reasoning in the Obama era, it’s time to end the apartheid by having Congress invite the Mexican people to dissolve their ever-corrupt fatcat and cartel-controlled govt. and failed country and join the U.S. as 10+ new states sans racism.
‘Socialized Medicine’ and Hamas: Big Lies Thrive. The conflict between The Big Lie and The Big Truth is really about which side can repeat its points most often. It’s an endurance contest.

Red-Baiting and Racism: Socialism as the New Black Bogeyman. This noise is about race. It is about “othering” a President who is seen as a symbol of white dispossession: dispossession of white hegemony, white entitlement, white expectation, and white power, unquestioned and unchallenged from the darker skinned other. -Tim Wise McClintock’s Neocon “Morality” Tortures the [...]
A Teachable Moment: Police Authority and Racism. President Obama was right the first time when he said the police acted stupidly, because they should know better. It’s unfortunate that the president found it necessary to step back and retract the remark because until we can see this kind of action with some objectivity, we will [...]

Love [...]

100 Days: Is Obama’s Probation Period Over? When the brotha tried to be positive and upbeat, they said he smiled too much during these tough economic times. –Anthony Asadullah Samad Anti-Immigrant Hysterics’ Swine Flu Blame-Game Generates Blowback.

Across the Border Humvees in Tijuana: The US and the Mexican Narco-Wars. We need to clean up our own act before intervening in Mexico. Even under Obama we look too quickly to the military “solution” — no solution at all. –Diane Lefer Unreliable Immigration Data Is Out of Date and Context. Mainstream media running a [...]
