My email to Rev. Al today @ firstname.lastname@example.org:
I am so grateful to you for speaking out with the truth.
I read your comments.
"Congress needs to pass a comprehensive immigration reform bill now."
"I want to say what a lot of people won't say. The immigration debate is not simply about border security, it is a problem of America dealing with race," Sharpton told the audience.
You are right. Hispanics and African Americans have partnered together for the last several decades in support of the Civil Rights laws.
I believe the Civil Rights Movement was the most important change in American History. We have finally lived up to our Founding Fathers´ beliefs and the Declaration of Independence in saying, "ALL PEOPLE ARE CREATED EQUAL!" as I said in a previous post:
"The achievements during this phase of the Civil Rights Movement were passage of the Civil Rights Act of 1957, the Civil Rights Act of 1964 that banned discrimination in employment practices and public accommodations, the Voting Rights Act of 1965 that restored voting rights, the Immigration and Nationality Services Act of 1965 that dramatically changed U.S. immigration policy, and the Civil Rights Act of 1968 that banned discrimination in the sale or rental of housing."
I think we, minorities, understand the core beliefs our founding fathers were advocating. WE ARE EQUAL and America is the Land of the Free, Home of the Brave.
Thank you for standing up for us, Rev. Al. We need you right now!!
