Listen to this:
Well, well, well, just look what a little candor can do for one’s presidential bid. This past weekend, Donald Trump actually attracted over 10,000 people in Arizona as the key-note speaker after his well publicized comments about immigration literally created real reactions that exposed what many THINK ABOUT but aren’t bold enough to talk about.
Let’s be real, we all have our views, including African Americans. When have we ever championed immigration?
Donald Trump spoke his mind and opened up the floor for everyone to talk about this elephant in the room. His comments were not unlike many of those who speak with friends and family; it just shocked people to hear someone actually say what was on his mind–uncensored, unafraid, and with such boldness. He never backed down. And now he’s second behind Jeb Bush in the polls.
Controversy sells and it definitely got the voters attention.
I grew up in Chicago, and much of what he said is factual, just overstated to some degree. But I will contend that even in my old neighborhood, many homeowners resented seeing many Mexicans moving in to the community, often having multiple families living in one house. This put a gross burden on the community and schools system. They weren’t paying taxes for the number of children in the home. This also plays out in healthcare as well. Many Latino and Chicano immigrants are not educated and there are criminals among them who come to this country.
How many times have we heard people talk about this? African Americans are not fans of illegal immigrants. When this issue began to hit the fan during the Bush administration, no many of us protested against it.
The Dream Act was supposed to be the payback from Obama to Hispanics for voting for him. However, giving amnesty to one group and denying citizenship to others, (Haitians) is a double standard. Haitians are always viewed in a negative way but Hispanics are packaged a little differently. And we see the disparity don’t we?
Let’s be real, many Americans, particularly white Americans, side with Trump. Many do believe that illegal immigration leads to crime.
Did you know that many Mexican elites actually agree with Trump? Mexico is not exactly a place of social equality and there is a caste system there, as well as prejudice. Those who are educated and wealthy in Mexico, could care less about the poor and often, the illegal immigrants that leave, are often forgotten about. The greatest divide in Mexico is that of class. Many of the elites know that Trump was speaking the truth of what many of them say in secret among each other.
So who’s mad again?
As for illegal immigration, the TRUTH is glaring in the face of the Republican candidates. The people are starting to get behind Trump. A lesson to be learned indeed. Say what you want about the man; but he’s not afraid to speak his mind–even at the expense of other people’s feelings.
We know what Trump thinks, but will this help him win the Presidency?
