What’s the problem here?

What does this photo mean to you?

So, many things that I felt reading this and looking at this photo, but I’ll hold off on my thoughts on this for now. I want to hear yours first. Let’s start a conversation. Tell me what you think of when you see this and why? There’s so much I want to say about this, but I would love for someone else to kick start this conversation and we can go from there.

Yes white ppl came here and fought for land but when can we realize that we are all on the same page no matter what in this country?? we are all people who want to live here in America and the race, religion, gender, and diversity in people should help bring us together not tear us apart, on God

idk if I’m just overthinking this, but if this is implying that illegal immigrants are signing up for welfare, well sorry to break this to anyone that believes that, that would kind of be like them outing themselves as illegal. Illegal immigrants can’t apply for welfare. LOL

I think they forgot to add on the list of other deeds committed by early patriotic Americans…**clears throat for emphasis**…

1. Trail of tears
2. systemic genocide of NATIVE Americans
3: Systemic oppression and violation and genocide of African Americans
4. …you know what I’m not doing this…to anyone that does not see a problem with this photo go the fuck educate yourself

I want to say that people are quick to judge but slow to understand perspectives different from them. I can appreciate what you are trying to do with this post, Flames, but on the real though? Do you ever feel like this may be pointless? There’s so many people that are so bent on hatred or just plain wanting to be angry, there is no changing people’s minds.

Pretty sure the whole damn foundation of this country is to get away from persecution. I don’t understand how people are going to completely deflect from this original thought the country was built on………..now that’s hella problematic af

Flames, are you really trying to have a conversation? Because starting this post with, “What’s the problem here?” is not the best way to get people to communicate who may disagree with you. Or is this another ploy to get more attention.

No perspective is perfect. And I think what she was trying to say is to identify the issue with statements such as what that photo and caption are making. Clearly not all immigrants are on welfare. Just as not all natural-born citizens are on welfare, but are part of a small majority that are on welfare. Generalizing a whole population of people is never the solution. I think that’s what our current administration is doing and I also think that’s what the other side does to anyone that wants to enforce some sort of rules and regulations around this topic.

People need to face facts. It sounds to me like we have a bunch people that are thinking with their hearts and not facing reality. Illegals are coming in every day. That is ILLEGAL. I don’t know how else to get it through your heads. This ain’t right. They want to be here so bad they can come about it legally. There is a process in place.

Right, exactly. Ppl attach passion to all these immigration scenarios. We have to take feelings out of it and make way for facts. I agree with you Todd. Glad someone is trying to make sense in a world full of snowflakes.

What I don’t understand is how people think that it is alright to sit here and diminish the backbone on which this country was created in the first place. It’s alright when the white people immigrated here. And now that the brown and black people want to come in, it’s time to start evaluating our immigration policies. Yea, great joke. . .NOT

Right exactly! I am proud to be a brown person living in America. We need to find a middle ground here. There has to be one. Something has to give. We cannot sit here and do nothing anymore. Too many people are being hurt.

Oh, so we gon’ sit here and act like the first “Americans” to walk this land did not just steal the land that did not belong to them. Did not take advantage of the people that were already here…..This some fucked up shit. The people coming into this country are not trying to live off welfare. Let’s not get it twisted. Flames I know you don’t believe this shit. What are your thoughts about all this?
