Is it racist to have a concern about immigration?


A few of our left wing buddies start shouting about people being a racist when they show a concern about the levels of immigration. Is immigration a question of race or a question of numbers?

    I completely agree. I also think demonizing immigrants is a way to take attention off of other people plundering this countries wealth, but that's another subject.

    If they got the robber, but they keep stopping every "redhead in a car", then is profiling. You have obvious prejudice against them. Being middle eastern does not mean "hate and crime".

    I don't think we can say that racism is the primary reason some are anti-immigration. Though in many cases it may be true. I believe that the reason is more related to fear, closed mindednes and not being able to love their neighbors as themselves.

    I agree with what you said. But the last question - well, preventing "risk" immigrants or visitors, for that matter, I am against. The FBI knows who the risks are and yet, they are allowed in. I'm NOT for that.

    Xenophobia, an irrational fear of the truth, sometimes exhibited by those on the left of the political spectrum.
