Protests vs. law come up short - BostonHerald.com maybe the new face(S) of hate in America? Uploaded with ImageShack.us I don't know, but I do think people are being hateful. I support throwing the illegals back across the border when caught, but I had said the same back when Irish illegals (and later Brazilian illegals) were swamping the labor trades back a few decades ago. The difference was, I did sound all angry, or focus on how they spoke. I would not have been so angry as to come out to a rally with my children in tow. I would not have been upset enough to vote for or against politicians on the single issue of immigration reform. Whether the hate is race based or more is an open question. I suspect for most anti immigrant loud mouths, it is not only or all a matter of race, but the level of anger is exceptional. The only time this level of anger has been directed at immigrants and channeled towards drastic reform proposals at public rallies, was back in the good old days of racism against 'yellow' people, and the eye-talians, greeks, and others from Eastern Europe. .
