Hate Crime Hits Close to a Blogger’s Home

Posted by Jack Stephens on July 11, 2007

The area around Sacramento has become sort of a haven for violent hate groups in the past decade or so. There are several white pride and anti-gay groups, and even some anti-Semitic groups (one fire-bombed five synagogues a few years ago), and they’re getting more violent lately, less secretive about their prejudices.

And now a young man my age, a nice guy who was trying to make a good life for himself, is dead because people have just ignored them, or worse, because they secretly agree. And the Russian community is hiding them, and the police will only charge them with involuntary manslaughter and resisting arrest if they are caught.

Immigration, Nativists, and America’s “Moral Panic”

Posted by Jack Stephens on July 11, 2007

XicanoPwr blogs:

Since 9/11, the question of what immigrants contribute to American society is at the forefront of the immigration debate. Stoking anti-immigrant hostility, nativists and restrictionists commonly resort to marginalizing immigrants by relegating them to an economic underclass. Critics of outsourcing have pointed to India as the source of America’s economic woes, but the issue is a lot more complicated than it is being portrayed. Nativists contribute to the stigma of immigrants are draining social services. However, immigrants actually generate significantly more in taxes paid than they cost in services.
