"Illegal Aliens"

Most of us are, with the exception of Native Americans and Africans forced into this country. Believing in the power of mixed media for education, below are two videos: "The Great Immigration Debate of 1621" and "How to Solve Illegal Immigration" found on YouTube. I am sorry to say that they are not closed captioned and therefore exclude the Deaf.

The first video takes a satirical look at colonialism and tells the story as if people indigenous to this land had the power when Europeans immigrated here. Not only do they tell the story as if Native Americans had the power but also as if the Native Americans ruled like White people do/did.

In the second video (please do not be fooled by the cartoon or the cats) a serious education is offered about what truly happens in this country regarding immigration abuse and all the ways lies are told as if they are the truth. I highly recommend any Pinky Show video.
