Re: “Dear Moderate, It's your fault

To the guy whose ancestors are from the North as you put it, do you know what the Civil War was actually about, the control of the money, economics, and Honest Abe & company didn't care that people were enslaved any more than the people in the south did. Also people had slaves in the North too there numerous books and references to support this, Google is your friend. You say your ancestors were share croppers, 2 questions: were they ever enslaved and we're they subjugated because of the color of their skin? I'll answer that for you NO! Don't compare the historic or present life of white people(poor or otherwise) to that of black people in this country until you have thoroughly examined the laws and history of this country, you look silly and poorly educated.

Secondly the comparison of being told to go back to Africa and those effected by DACA is valid in the context that KJ framed it. That many of those effected may be told/forced to go to countries they no nothing about culturally and in a lot of cases language barriers may be present as well. We really need to work on reading comprehension and understanding context in this country. Also assuming that because someone is Latino that they're fluent in or speak Spanish at all is ridiculous, especially in a country that says 'We speak English here and you better learn it'. Stop contradicting yourselves you're looking crazy out here.

Please tell your president and his cronies to stop trying to use black people to boost their agenda to kick these people of this country. Stop reciting employment stats to the public that somehow if those effected by DACA are gone 800,000 jobs will magically appear on the black community's doorstep. We all know that will never, ever, ever, ever, ever happen, use another angle clowns we don't believe you.

This country was built on the idea that people could come here, work hard and become something. It was also built on the backs of Natives, enslaved Africans and immigrants. Immigrants come to this country work for well below what they should, help support the American economy for decades and now because some orange faced Cheeto has a grudge against everyone who isn't rich, white and male their lives will be completely turned upside down. There needs to be something put in place that sets the Dreamers on paths to citizenship in the U.S. and sending them to foreign lands that the gov't thinks they belong to is not the way to do that. Especially when it's dipped in white privileged hate and covered in rich white male hubris. FOH
