A video on cnn.com includes an interview of a woman living in an Azle, Texas home with a sign that reads: “Hispanics Keep Out”.
This is one extreme view in the immigration debate and unlike many anti-immigrants who may try to conceal their racist views behind a veil of often weak but seemingly logical arguments – this woman in her seventies is sharing what she really thinks.
Hatred is a very powerful emotion. This is an example of someone who one could imagine calling her Congressmen and Senators a dozen times daily to make her voice heard against immigration reform. Is this who our politicians should be listening to? Just because someone yells the loudest, it doesn’t make her right nor does it make her part of the “majority of Americans”.
