    How do African Americans feel about all the Hispanics coming into the United States?

    i don’t care who is coming to this country. At some point we all had to migrate here or be brought or sent here – except for Native Americans.

    As a black man living in Florida, there are quite a few Hispanic immigrants living here. I don’t have a problem with Hispanic immigrants if that’s what you are referring to (i will assume so) but I, like most Americans, believe that illegal aliens regardless of nationality don’t belong here. I frankly don’t understand why illegal aliens have rights in the first place. In the news the other day, i even heard that illegal aliens are suing a comapny for firing them because they were illegal aliens! How bizarre is that?

    We (African Americans) don’t have a problem with Hispanics immigrating as long as the following criteria are met: 1) Please check in at the door. As in come into the country by legal means and register yourself. This is a must for properity, safety, and security of everyone involved. 2) Please understand the economics here. We are a capitalist, free market economy based on trade. Therefore, there have to be enough jobs, food and social services to go around, You cannot just add people to the nation when theyre aren’t the resources to provide for everyone. 3) Please understand you aren’t the only people immigrating here. I don’t understand why Mexicans feel they deserve special treatment over all other peoples. Refugees from other ‘poor’ countries such as Nigeria, Haiti, Cuba, even Iraq would like to come here too. 4) Please don’t blow the Mexican flag in our face and expect us to accept this. Whoever gave the protesters Mexican flags to wave in D.C a while back was just plain WRONG. If you want to be accepted here you have to be a citizen, you can’t fly a foreign flag in protest. 5) Latino/Hispanic cultures are beautiful. We respect your heritage so please respect ours. One thing guarenteed to piss off African-Americans is when foreigners look down their noses at us becasue we aren’t white. Don’t do this ! Our struggle is significant; we don’t like outsiders considering those of us who are born here to be ‘less than’. 6) Please drop the ‘You have it, we don’t, so just give it to us’ mentality. We are not a communist or socialist country and we are not about to become one. Please don’t feel you are entitled to get handed free stuff because you slid it across the border. Achievement comes by hard work and sacrifice. See also issue 2 and remember the aftermath of Hurrican Katrina, we have poor people of our own. 7) We ARE NOT all lazy, drug addicted gangstas. Please take time to get to know someone black who is hard working, sensible, productive, and Christiian and you will learn we are much more alike than different from you. 8) Black women are sensitive. Please be respectful in what you say and how you treat them. Always follow a Christian attitude.

    You want to know what I feel about all the Hispanics coming into the United States? I feel fine with it. I don’t care if they’re here, it’s not my country, alone. How could anyone claim what God put on this earth for everyone? A few of my friends are Hispanic and I love em to death. They’re so nice once you get to know them, and why wouldn’t I want someone like that here with me?

    I have heard of these theories and I would advise you not to say that to Native people because for me and my community we find that very offensive. We have many oral histories describing our origins and none talk of a mass migration from Asia. Many native people feel that they have always been where they are now and will always will be.

    I think Latinos entering the United States is a great thing. This country was founded by immigrants. There are laws that need to be followed to gain permanent entry into this great nation and they should be followed.
