MASS IMMIGRATION STEALS THE AMERICAN DREAM,
& THE WHITE GUY PROVIDES THE DISTRACTION
By Glenn R. Jackson
Unemployment numbers for November were released and unemployment among black Americans rose to a glaring 11%. And while having more than one out of every ten black Americans unemployed and fast becoming unemployable may seem bad, it only gets worse from here. The Atlanta Journal/Constitution ran a front-page article on Decem- ber 6, 2002 Colleges seek Black Men Regents Study Targets Obstacles That Deter Enrollment in Georgia Universities. The problem: black men account for fewer than 2% of the student body in Georgia Universities.
With unemployment soaring to 11% for black Americans and college enrollment drop- ping below 2%, black Americans are being committed to a life of unskilled labor or to perpetual existence on public support. As desperate as this may seem, it is not a true indicator of the hopelessness. The depth and breadth of betrayal that is the deliberate undercutting of any economic pathways to a growing black middle class in America, as perpetrated by the Democrats, Republicans, and civil rights leaders alike, indicates a bleak future.
Good jobs--not minimum wage burger flippers, but good paying, hard working, esteem building jobs--are being given away as jobs Americans do not want to do. A massive influx of low skill or no skill workers is being flooded across U.S. borders because $5 an hour looks like a Princes wage when compared to a high-end $5 per week that was being earned in the immigrants third world country.
The open borders lobby and its mass immigration invasion is creating a permanent underclass in the United States. Believing apparently that black America is not worth saving, the open borders crowd has set its sights on a new labor supply.
The U.S. southern border has now become a revolving door for the influx of cheap unskilled labor and the outflow of U.S. dollars. We Americans are having our pockets picked, but no one is suffering from the immigration whirlwind lto the extent that America's black community is suffering.
While unemployment rates of 11% are disturbing, the reported unemployment rate of 7.8% for Hispanic workers is reprehensible. First and foremost, the 7.8% unemployment rate for Hispanics is based by necessity on documented workers. This ignores, or at best only partially counts the massive numbers of undocumented workers living in the United States. Yes, these are the very same undocumented guest workers to whom the President wishes to grant amnesty.
For Americas black community, the outrage over importing even more unskilled labor in the face of 11% unemployment should be palpable. That this mass immigration continues in the face of a nearly 8% unemployment number for Hispanic workers should be sound- ing alarm bells in NAACP offices coast to coast.
Clearly, open-border advocates, Democrats and Republicans alike, are willing to endure a considerable number of new wards of the state, as attested to by the nearly 8% unemployment rate among documented Hispanics, in order to do an end run around the black community. It stands to reason that if we can import millions of unskilled workers from south of the border and support an unemployment rate of nearly 8% among those workers, there were surely jobs enough to help support the black community.
The catch, of course, is that black Americans expect to be paid an American wage. Apparently, this is not the wage the open-borders crowd has in mind. In 1980, janitors in Los Angeles, a primarily black workforce, earned wages averaging about $13 an hour. Today that hourly wage is $7 to $8 an hour, and the janitorial workforce is primarily Hispanic.
While Americas black leaders go chasing after Senator Trent Lott, generation on top of generation of black Americans is having the American Dream stolen or set forever out of their reach. When the leadership finally does catch up to Senator Lott, dont be surprised if they pin a medal on his chest.
Once again, some poor dumb white guy has provided a distraction from the crucial problem affecting blacks in America.
