Uh oh, the blacks are figuring it out

BlackReader Publius sends this along: If 30 million new unskilled laborers come into the country to compete for jobs, how does that help African-Americans? So far, the Democrats don’t care if they’re offending their base because they figured out long ago they’ve got them locked in, regardless of the disastrous effects “progressive” policies have done to them. That might change. UPDATE: Black American in gang-infested Baltimore asks, “where can I get asylum?”

“I’m living a nightmare. My whole neighborhood is so violent. There’s so much crime,” she said. “I have gangs everywhere here in Baltimore! I can’t let my daughter ride her bicycle outside – I can’t do anything … ! I’m trapped here.”

“Well, what about my neighborhood? You don’t have to do it in Beverly Hills, but in the inner cities where we are suffering,” she said. “My children cannot play outside. I cannot take my trash out without locking the door – it’s awful. Who is going to give us anything? Where can I get asylum? Where can I get refugee status? I don’t know what I can do. Nobody cares what happens to my children.”

The unemployment rate for black Americans is nearly double that of whites, and the amnesty legislation favored by Obama and the bipartisan permanent political class would hurt black Americans the most by flooding the labor market with more cheap labor. That is why Civil Rights Commissioner Peter Kirsanow wrote the Congressional Black Caucus to urge them to vote against amnesty bills that would make it more difficult for black Americans to enter the middle class.

“Giving amnesty to illegal immigrants would only exacerbate this problem facing low-skilled men, who are disproportionately African-American,” Kirsanow concluded.

    This is certainly on point. The flood of unskilled labor has left our native unskill labor in the cold.

    The solution, just keep bumping up the minimum wage and continue to ease the eligibility for government benefits. Get a check, get a vote!

    It’s unfortunate, but I think the many decades and numerous generations of collecting entitlements, of being encouraged not to bother working or getting an education or obtain a skill, have disabled any ability to see how they’ve been used by the liberal democrat machine. Quite sad. Their ancestors would be ashamed to see the downfall of the black culture/family. But hey, we’re all in a free fall of society anyway. I’m just working my way towards it at a job to distract myself from the horror, others are doing their part sitting on their asses all day watching Paternity Court and Maury Povich.

      By sheer coincidence to your astute observation, I read a review of a new book out that’s getting excellent reviews, by the black comminity! The book is called Please Stop Helping us, written by a black about blacks under the liberal thumb. I hope he gets some decent press. One if the best lines in the book is : “Having a black man in the Oval Office is less important than having one in the home.”

  4. Damn, any idea how racist y’all sound? Black person = unskilled labor? You talk about black people like :

    a) you know any, which is clearly not the case.
    b) you give a shit about their well-being, instead of your bizarre political agenda (which, BTW, seems to only have one consistent theme which is to disparage anyone who doesn’t look like you)

    Here’s a good research project for you–go and meet some people who look different than you and all of your friends. Get to know one. Then, stop being uneducated and stupid.

    • The blacks I know are educated professionals, by and large, and not the illiterate, unskilled teens who presently suffer 38% unemployment rate (higher still for black males) and who tend to graduate from NEA/Democrat sponsored schools that have a 90% illiteracy rate for their graduates.
      Here’s a suggestion for you: go take a look at what you and your fellow liberals’ policies have wrought over the past 50 years – check out the illegitimacy rate – 75%, literacy rate, unemployment rate, incarceration rate, and so forth, then come back here with an essay on how your love and compassion have improved the lot of the poor.

      Sorry, denying the truth isn’t helping anyone. The statistics are tragic. And anyone who disagrees with King Barry is always a racist too of course.

    So blacks are the group most threatened by cheap unskilled labor? Really?

    • The uneducated and unskilled are the ones most threatened by cheap, unskilled labor, and black teens constitute a large bloc of those unfortunates. The ultimate threat to anyone with nothing to offer but unskilled hands is robots, but that’s probably a dozen years or so down the road. Until then yes, the world ends, women, minorities hardest hit.
      Here’s an article from last year detailing blacks’ opposition to amnesty, including a reference to the Civil Rights Commission’s finding that amnesty for illegal immigrants “will disproportionately harm …poor blacks”. The persons cited include both liberals and conservatives, but to one of them is a white liberal. Funny thing, that.

        Dude –
        Now let’s be objective on this, shall we? I can see why the reader may see a little bias on your part. Be honest, now. Even though you didn’t mean it.

        You seem to imply that the American Negro cannot compete with the illegal wetback. It’s true, even I had the same thought. But I know that was not your intent. You lily assed hack.

        But I know that you know that I know that you know the NBA is like 120% black, so how can these midget little taco eaters compete with that? THEY CAN’T!! So of course that isn’t what you meant. Proving the reader is an idiot.

        And who do the red hot chili pepper wet back illegals have to compare to the Reverend Al? NO ONE!! THEY CAN’T COMPETE!! I know you know that. The reader doesn’t.

        And have you ever seen a Mexican rapper? A Taco Bell Dr. Dre? NO!!
        And I know that you know that I know that you know you know that. But the reader doesn’t. The reader must be a wet back.

        So just a heads up. From someone who actually knows how to write. Be careful what you write. Not everyone has reading comprehension. You illiterate hack.

        Street Fair tomorrow? Do they have any taco stands? AYE CARUMBA!! Or fried chicken booths? MY NIGGAH!!

        Your Pal,
        Walt

    • Umm yes. What other group would be?

    Question: how will current events affect not just black but white attitudes towards Hispanics?

    I’m an educated white man. Having millions of unskilled uneducated immigrants flood this country benefits me greatly. All those unskilled lawn mowers, kitchen workers, nannies and house cleaners lowers the cost of my extravagant lifestyle here in Greenwich. But, even with that huge benefit I am opposed to allowing millions of illegal immigrants from entering or staying in this country. To say that this influx wouldn’t hurt the already hurting low income minority population is a fallacy.

    “Economic disaster” that’s really rich… Drive past exit 9 you will see scores of Latino unskilled workers looking for work. The same gatherings occur throughout Westchester & Fairfield Counties. Of the hundreds of these mobs I have witnessed, I have NEVER seen ONE black face, not one. Adding to the pool of unskilled labors, is not hurting or helping black Americans, despite the gibberish this article spews.

    • I’ve argued the same thing – the Latinos are hard working individuals, for the most part (I suppose the gang members also work hard, but …) , driven here out of a desire to earn money that they can’t in their own countries. That said, if we won’t protect our border and instead open our country and our wallets to the poor of the world, the gypsies will be the least of our problems. As Milton Friedman said, you can have open borders (which he favored) or a welfare system; you can’t have both. As usual, the liberals want two mutually-exclusive things, and because they believe in magic, expect to get it.
