“The problems of race cannot be solved without adequate understanding”

(the post title is taken from American Renaissances’ about page)

I stumbled upon a website showing the darker side of the anti-“illegal” immigration debate. This happened while I was trying to find some real evidence telling of hospitals going bankrupt due to “illegal” immigrants. The only in depth evidence I could find about the hospitals was from ALIPAC through a column by Frosty Woolrdge, whom I’ve written about previously.

Well let’s look at the site called American Renaissance.
Link to “Hispanics – A Statistical Portrait.”

You can easily tell by their articles where they stand on this issue. I took the time to download their PDF entitled “Hispanics – A Statistical Portrait.”  It states the following:

Crime

•Hispanics are 3.3 times more likely to be in prison than whites; they are 4.2 times more likely to be in prison for murder, and 5.8 times more likely to be in prison for felony drug crimes.
•Young Hispanics are 19 times more likely than young whites (and slightly more likely than young blacks) to be in youth gangs.

Education

•Hispanics drop out of high school at three times the white rate and twice the black rate. Even third-generation Hispanics drop out of school at a higher rate than blacks and are less likely to be college graduates.
From 1992 to 2003, Hispanic illiteracy in English rose from 35 percent to 44 percent.
•The average Hispanic 12th-grader reads and does math at the level of the average white 8th-grader.

The last one is my favorite because the average anti-“illegal” immigrant protesters/speakers barely function at an 8th-grade level. Go listen to the speeches on You Tube. I pointed out on Voice Of The People USA’s website that their declaration was full of errors. The truth is that most adults don’t even read much less read at an 8th grade level, nor can many Americans do math at above an 8th grade level. I’d like to see the writer of this little book work on some matrices.

This goes on in the report, but the above is enough to show where they are going. Basically if the reverse was true (which I don’t believe the above numbers to be wholly true) then I guess we’d be asking that us white folks be sent back to Europe to get it right.

I have the same basic argument most of the time. We, the white man (which includes Spain) conquered the free world. We sailed all over the Earth and took whatever we wanted, killed when we couldn’t take it, and finally we stayed and threw out our elbows when we decided that we wanted new land. Now, we’re going to sit here and read off statistics about how Hispanics are less educated, and more likely to have Aids? This is ludicrous.

The people that write these types of reports would spit on a person and then tell you that they are dirty. Why not take some responsibility for the things we humans have done and start cleaning ourselves up? We deny responsibility for others suffering, we deny destroying the Earth and global warming, and then we sit in front of the television for some Monday night Football and a cold one. Yep, this must be America.
