I support the political activism which is coming out of the various immigrant communities across the country. The call for protests is long overdue these political activities by our country's silent immigrant communities hopefully will include an acknowledgment and recognition of the civil rights efforts and achievements made by Black Americans which has created a model for this type of political activism. There is a lot of tension between Black Americans and the immigrant communities for a number of reasons including our fear of no longer being this country's favorite victim and scapegoat. Black Americans can continue to make this country great by assisting these immigrant communities in achieving life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness..
