Poor people from poor countries populated America, and then became “white.” That was their right of passage. It is the saga of the American immigrants, who now turn on the new immigrants, as they did on the Black laborers who worked alongside them. They chose whiteness. Now they turn on Mexicans – who are also not of their race. Racism is the game. White supremacy is the object, and the at root of discourse around “legal vs. illegal immigration.” It has always been. White America is out to protect its hard earned whiteness. But for Black America. the stakes are different. Do we need a whiter America?
