“Who speaks for me?!” called Anthony Coulter from Murrieta protest lines. Coulter was speaking from the protest site in Murrieta, CA on July 7. The demonstrations outside the U.S. Customs and Border Protection facility sprang up in connection with attempts to transfer illegal aliens from overcrowded Texas detention facilities to the office in Murrieta, California.
Anthony held up a sign that read:
Definition of the word
In the Webster Dictionary:
-NOT ALLOWED BY LAW
Anthony explains in the video:
This [illegal] is not a racial word. Do you see white? Do you see black? Do you see Hispanic? Do you see Chinese, Vietnamese? Oh I’ll take it a step further. Do you see rich? Do you see poor? Do you see human? Do you see inhuman?
You don’t see that here, but when you say that [illegal], the connotation to that is that, and we’re all mixed up . . . I look around at all the people standing here and I look at myself, and I look for the representation of myself as an American citizen, born and raised in this country. My history here goes back for over 400 years or more. I know I have a right to be here. I know I have a right to be heard. But I’m not represented at all. So then who speaks for me? Where’s my voice in all of this? I don’t have one. Look around it’s just me. So then I’m my own voice. I have to be. Speaking for this man. He’s passed away. He was killed by the definition of this word [illegal].
Eric Holder, yous said we are a nation of cowards when it comes to race....YOUR DIVIDE AND CONQUER TECHNIQUE IS NOT WORKING ANYMORE AND YOU MIGHT WANT TO GET A NEW PLAYBOOK!
