One of the pleasures of being an obscure and powerless blogger --despite benefitting from the enormous crime of sharing White Male Privilege (pbuh)-- is that I can mouth off without consequences. (At least in America. For now.) I realize that. I was chief administrator of a few non-profits for twenty years and I can tell you that it's easier to take heroic potshots from the floor than it is to make a decision from the desk, that affects everybody...and then some. So I am conscious of my freedom to let my cyberjaw flap.
That being said, on FB there was a posting about Mexican immigration and our bad response to it. Part of the linked text said, "We watch these tragedies daily, and notice how many immigrants drown or die of exposure trying to get across. Do we have a solution?"
A commentor replied: "I do, snipers and landmines. Problem solved."
I wonder if he's single.
It is, btw, a few days after Cinco de Mayo, the St Patrick's day of the Mexican Diaspora. I wonder if any Americans got in trouble for wearing our national flag to our schools...in our country. For now.
