This is hilarious. This artile makes no mention of the fact that these perpertrators of gang violence are obviously Latinos. Yet in the article on race relations, the term Latinos is freely used to describe the victims of a supposed hate crime? Talk about a selective use of labels. We are supposed to believe our town has a issue with race relations when it is being over-run with illegals, descendents of many which wind up in gangs? What about the non-racist, non-Latino bare majority in this town who owns property and pays taxes and puts up with failing schools burdened by children of illegals and increasingly threatened by gang-related issues? Let's not forget about how some of our neighborhoods are being turned into ghettos. Aren't we the victims here? Being against illegal immigration and the many ills it brings to this town does not make one a racist. It makes one a law-abiding citizen.

Hey Enough! Our city will be stronger when we are over-populated with peoples from a third world. Remember: "Our strength is in our diversity." "Think globally act locally." From a registered Democrat - The Party of Bumper Stickers.

You've got to look at the positive side. Now that my child's class curve has been lowered substantially, she is now considered a "gifted student." Oh wait, it isn't politically correct to say "gifted student" anymore-implies all the other kids are stupid.

It's amazing how the soon to be minority white Anglo-Protestant culture that created this great nation has embarked on a path to self-efface itself from the future. Along with their European counterparts, they have opted for low birth rates and open embraces for immigrants. Oh well, survival of the most proliferant I suppose.
