Here is a snapshot of actual Americans giving their opinion and talking about illegal immigration. Now most Americans in the comments are referring to Mexicans who have literally overrode the southwest to point that some Americans say they are not the majority anymore. One commenter wrote that "parts of California look like a 3rd world country, Mexicans have ruined the state." I have read these opinions by the hundreds at this point I've heard it all. I don't deal with the same changes as what California has gone through I'm in Massachusetts and far away from the border. The debate is getting heated again as Obama discusses what to do about immigration reform. He made promises in his original campaign for presidency and lets face it Latinos helped get him into office. Though I'm married to an undocumented immigrant from Brazil I can still see SOME (and I stress some) of their side to the story. But I don't condone ignorance or ignorant comments and that goes for both sides. I think it depends on the type of person that comes over border. If they bring crime and ignorant attitudes with them then I am not for them being here or for getting papers.
As you read you will see that Americans have become pretty self-righteous in their ivory tower. I have a different view of life here in America and that is predominately due to my marriage. Its a very hard life to lead sometimes. Because I have to deal with the way Americans perceive immigrants form the south whether they are hear illegally or legally. Americans might not tell you to your face but in the dark corners of their mind they don't want to be infiltrated by anyone form the South. If an illegal immigrant form France somehow slipped into the US they would welcome him/her with open arms. The french are acceptable of course. We are inundated with how fucking perfect France is how special so cultured. But yet they can't muster the energy to take a shower. But the way the media portrays France and other European countries its like the sun rises and shines on these countries. I have come out of the fog of brainwashing and I now wonder what do they do that is so great other than steal and exploit the south for their own benefit? If its made in France its great, if its made in Venezuela its trash. France is the pinnacle of what people use as an example of quality of life. They can do no wrong. BUT the image of the South is so different I don't have to explain it everyone knows what I'm talking about. Its called discrimination. And its the way the media portrays the South that gives Americans their disdain for Mexico and South America.
It has really opened my eyes as to who some of my fellow Americans really are. Most who have turned out to be total hypocrites a quality I find really loathsome. I don't like it when people refer to Brazil as a 3rd world country just to be derogatory and put Brazil on a lower plateau. They like to cast the country as 3rd world so they can dismiss it. Even if parts are like 3rd world conditions, last time I checked ALL the citizens in the U.S. that now call themselves Americans are descended usually form poor farm workers that arrived at the golden shores on disease infested boats. So when I hear some of the comments I want to get into an argument. For that reason I have done a lot of research and study into US foreign policy and history to make sure I know what I'm dealing with. The US which is not all innocent in this subject perpetuates the myth that Brazil is a 3rd world dump by virtually ignoring the country and letting old generalizations stay where they are. I have a hard time finding anything about Brazil in the American media unless its negative even that is few and far between. And I know its done on purpose because China is 3rd world and they can't seem to shut the F up about that country in the media I guess the US has to kiss China's ass due to the fact China now owns this country. Their is a lot of ignorance on the part of Americans who have no idea what is really going on and only believe what they are spoon fed most of which is provocative inflammatory information about these countries. In general America is a individualist society where all inhabitants are pretty much living in their own bubble and could care less about the plight of other countries or how they got that way.
