The next "offensive" term to be purged from the lexicon by the propagandists in the media

A self-purported professional journalism group reveals its utter lack of objectivity by appealing to the media to censor a term that's nothing more than an accurate description of certain peoples' legal status in this country:

"The Diversity Committee of the Society of Professional Journalists (SPJ) is seeking to 'inform and sensitize' reporters nationwide about how 'offensive' the term 'illegal immigrant' is to Latinos."

Despite the fact that illegal immigrants as a group are ironically about as diverse a population as one can have - Chinese in San Francisco, Irish in Boston and Africans in New York City, to name a few examples.  Why, Dear Leader's own "Dear Auntie" Zeituni Onyango until quite recently was just such an individual, and there was nothing remotely Hispanic about her Kenyan background the last time we checked it out.

Sorry, Diversity Committee re-educators.  Your biased attempt to turn words you don't like into some kind of newly-created racial epithet in a desperate attempt to redirect the debate over "illegal immigration" (oops, we wrote it) simply isn't going to work.

Maybe we should just call it what it is? Illegal Migration. How did that work out for Rome ... or any other country where the locals became the minority.

"Diversity" has never worked ... anywhere.

Curtis, You mean locals like the native Indians in the U.S.A.? That seemed to work out alright. Or maybe in your world if you're white it doesn't count as illegal migration.

Ah yes, the old Indian come-back. I wish my Choctaw grandmother were still alive ... just so she could laugh at you. Life was tough. Her grandmother did the Trail of Tears. But my grandmother was thankful that she didn't have to live in a wigwam courtesy of the ... horrors ... white man.

And by the way Randall ... I feel the same way about illegal white migrants too.

But then again, Randall ... while we can not change the past ... we can certainly learn from it ... no?

Whether it is the Romans in Rome or the Indians in the Americas.

So what exactly IS your point Randall?

You're not one of those open the borders for one and all are you?

As far as I am concerned, make it a free-fire zone at the border. My ancestors came here WAY before border controls, or they obeyed the law and came in legally and didn't burden anyone.

By the way, I'm the same "anonymous" that has been irritating people here for some time.
