Just another beaner who shouldn’t be here…

A few weeks back I posted why I was voting for McCain. The post pointed at immigration and was largely directed at Latinos. Some thought that I was misguided because Latinos are more than just an immigrant community. I wholly agree, but that doesn’t mean 3rd and 4th generation Latinos can act as if the immigration debate doesn’t touch them. A colleague at Pomona College posted an article from CNN describing how a Latino kid was attacked by the Ku Klux Klan because he “looked” like an illegal alien. There is no distinction between Latinos who are here legally or not, and racists really could care less, not to mention the government officials who carry out our draconian immigration laws. To those Latinos who think they are above this debate, take a look at Jordan Gruver. You are him. You’re just another beaner who shouldn’t be here.
