Fear And Reality

December 24, 1989

I was truly incensed at the statement that immigrants will not become Americans. We are Americans before we ever get here, because Mexico, Guatemala, El Salvador, Colombia and Peru are all America, the American continent.

Who gave Anglos permission to settle in Massachusetts and Virginia? God? Well, God told us to come here, too, thank you very much, with the difference that Mexicans did not "come" from anywhere but were here since way before Plymouth Rock.

Maybe now the Anglos will get a taste of how the Indians felt.
