In the media spin world, groups which are representing White interests are declared “racist,” while groups representing non-White interests are not. Although being “racist” has never been proven scientifically incorrect, in fact the evidence has always supported the racist cause, the term racist has certainly been tarred by the media as negative for religious or moral reasons, something always vague and not really definable.
In this news article, a representative of a “community group” complains about the Minutemen being racist. So her racially based organization is not racist? How many European immigrants does her organization represent or does it just represent Mexicans? She claims the Latino community is her community. Isn’t a “community group” a euphemism for race when an African or a Mexican is speaking? Is this a distinction without difference?
She further stated that “race, not any political agenda with employers, is the real issue.” Is there a difference? Look at all of the issues immigration, crime, income transfer schemes, affirmative action, education, foreign policy. Are there any not based on race?
Is there really a difference between race and politics? Is it a distinction without difference?
VISTA Calif., (AP) - The Minuteman Project will be picketing a site in Vista that attracts dozens of day laborers in an effort to discourage employers from hiring migrant workers.
An organizer said the Minuteman Project would begin picketing the intersection of Escondido and South Santa Fe Avenues in Vista, which is 26 miles north of San Diego, on Saturday.
"We are not there to protest illegal aliens and day laborers," said Jeff Schwilk, 41 of Oceanside, an organizer of the event. "We are there to protest the people who go there and violate federal law by hiring them."
But a San Diego human rights activist and opponent of the Minuteman project said race, not any political agenda with employers, is the real issue.
"These attacks are against a particular community: the Latino community, which is my community," said Enrique Morones, a Gente Unida founder. "And that's one of the many reasons we say these are racist organizations."
Gente Unida is coalition of various community and political groups with a focus on immigrant rights. The Minuteman Project is best known for sending volunteers, sometimes armed, to watch areas along the border for people crossing illegally into the United States.
The protest is scheduled to start at 8 a.m. and last for three hours. Schwilk said none of the participants will carry guns or block driveways, streets or sidewalks.
