Survival of the fittest – good philosophy. /s
Both seem fixated on certain features of their books. They take things out of context and take literally the symbolic and poetic passages. I’d take the Bible over the Quran for philosophy but some followers miss the whole point of it so it becomes worse.
Nope, they had the same motives – suppressing and hurting black and brown people. They seemed to enjoy it. Maybe you do also.
My point was that desperate people have been coming to the US for years (maybe 400?) and that laws will not stop them. You can stamp your feet and cover your ears and eyes but such immigration will continue. The obstacles to legal immigration may prevent some folks from coming here but many others will find a way to circumvent them. We need to help address the source of the problems that are making these folks desperate enough to die in deserts or in the oceans to get away from their horrendous situations.
Possibly surpassing Payne with this one. Breathtakingly stupid.
While it may be true that certain politicians remained in the Democratic Party, the southern states generally changed their national level voting from Democratic to Republican (although such change was not evident in the local or state level elections). The re-alignment can be seen in voting behavior studies comparing the 1950s southern states results with the 1970s results for presidential elections. Carter was an aberration, probably because he sounded like them and was a Southern Baptist. In short, the “southern strategy” worked for the most part.

See my reply to American Pie above. Just because some video showed people coming into the US doesn’t mean we’re worse off than ever before. It’s just anecdotal information, which doesn’t mean much in terms of US policy.
