    Guitarist Santana slurs jobless Americans as racists

    Guitarist Santana slurs jobless Americans as racists

    GUITAR STAR SANTANA SLURS E-VERIFY ON FIELD AT BRAVES/PHILLIES BASEBALL GAME

    Rock guitarist Carlos Santana may have reached a new low in hate speech against American workers when he took to a microphone on the field before the Atlanta Braves-Philadelphia Phillies game yesterday.

    In response to being given a civil rights award, Santana indicated that unemployed Black, Hispanic and White Americans who want jobs held by illegal aliens are as racist as those who turned the hoses and dogs on Martin Luther King and civil rights protesters in the 1960s.

    ACTION: Send a free fax to all 3 of your Members of Congress and decry this and other slurs against American workers:

    JOBLESS GEORGIANS TOLD THEY SHOULD BE ASHAMED OF WANTING JOBS HELD BY ILLEGAL ALIENS

    His voice echoing through the stadium sound system, Mexican-born Santana told the pre-game baseball crowd in Atlanta that they should be ashamed of themselves for allowing their state officials to enact a law that requires businesses to use E-Verify to ensure that jobs go to legal workers.

    "I represent the human race. The people of Arizona, the people of Atlanta, Georgia, you should be ashamed of yourselves."

    The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported that Santana met with media after the game started and expanded upon his hatred of unemployed Americans. He said Georgia's new E-Verify law is based on racism and economic anxiety.

    "This is about fear, that people are going to steal my job. No we ain't. You don't clean toilets and clean sheets, stop shucking and jiving."

    Wow! First, I'm impressed that he uses the "we" to identify himself with the illegal foreign workers. And he uses the "you" to address the Black, Hispanic and White Americans who are unemployed and are complaining about an estimated 425,000 illegal foreign workers and dependents in Georgia competing in the labor market.

    LIKE PRES. OBAMA LAST WEEK, SANTANA SHOWS IGNORANCE OF REALITY OF JOBLESS AMERICANS SEEKING JOBS AND INCOME

    Santana, like most pro-illegal-immigration activists, doesn't have the slightest idea about the reality of American workers.

    He doesn't know that the majority of hotel housekeeping employees are Americans. He doesn't know that the majority of custodial workers are Americans.

    Santana is like most bigots who speak, not from knowledge or facts, but from the emotional hatred stuck in their guts.

    Unfortunately, although Pres. Obama refrained from the bigotry expressed by Santana, his speech in El Paso week contained the same ignorance of the reality of America's unemployed -- particularly young adults who don't have a college education.

    I find it difficult to believe that Pres. Obama would have called for massive new work permits for foreign workers last week if he truly knew and understood the stats I'm about to give you.

    Let's take a look at the Americans Santana is calling racist for wanting laws to keep employers from keeping Americans unemployed by hiring illegal foreign workers.

    Of young American adults aged 18-29 with only a high school degree:

    40% of all these young adults don't have a job.

    43% of the Hispanic-American young adults don't have a job.

    50% of Black Americans of this group don't have a job.


    But Santana says these Americans don't deserve any sympathy because, according to him, they are just "shucking and jiving" when they complain that they should have jobs instead of the illegal foreign workers.

    WHO IS REALLY IN THE CIVIL RIGHTS TRADITION?

    About Georgia's mandatory E-Verify law, Santana said:

    "It's an anti-American law. it's a cruel law, actually. If you all remember what it was like here with Martin Luther King and the dogs and the hoses. It's the same thing, only its high tech. So Let's change it."

    The dogs and hoses in the 1960s were about keeping AMERICAN CITIZENS who were black from enjoying full rights, including full economic participation.

    Georgia's new law is about protecting AMERICAN CITIZENS, who disproportionately are black, from being barred from economic participation by employers who prefer illegal foreign workers.

    The people of Georgia who supported and pressed for the new mandatory E-Veriy law were operating in the best traditions of the Civil Rights movement and should have been given the civil rights award at the baseball ceremony.

    Instead, the ceremony was dominated by Santana who shamed himself and tarnished the civil rights tradition with his hateful diatribe against the most vulnerable members of our national community.

    He should stick to playing a guitar and if he doesn't like Americans, he shouldn't le the door hit him on the way out to another country where he is more in tune with the populace.

    The race card has been played too many times by too many people that are intent on promiting thier percieved superior ethnicity over everyone else including the laws of this country. Race supremists are equally distateful regardless of the race they promote. Unfortunately for Snatana he is promoting ilegal behavior and the exclusion of punishment based on the nationality of a group guilty of breaking our laws and cheaing the citizens through all types of fraud and illegal behavior.

    To find a true racist, perhaps Santana need only look in he mirror. JMO.
