Mar 07 2017

I think people need to actually look up the word immigrant. Whether you're voluntary or involuntary, if you come from outside to the inside, you're an immigrant … slaves came here as involuntary immigrants. But they still had the strength to hold on.feedback

Mar 07 2017 - Slavery

There were other immigrants who came here in the bottom of slave ships, worked even longer, even harder for less. But they too had a dream that one day their sons, daughters, grandsons, granddaughters, great-grandsons, great-granddaughters might pursue prosperity and happiness in this land.feedback

Mar 07 2017

The slave narrative and immigrant narrative are two entirely different experiences. The two experiences should never be intertwined, nor forgotten, as we demand the necessary progress towards an America that's inclusive and provides access to equal opportunity for all.feedback

Mar 06 2017

Slaves were ripped from their families and their homes and forced against their will after being sold into slavery by slave traders. The Immigrants made the choice to come to America.

Mar 06 2017

It remembers everything you've ever seen, everything you've ever heard. I could take the oldest person here, make a little hole right here on the side of the head, and put some depth electrodes into their hippocampus and stimulate and they would be able to recite back to you verbatim a book they read 60 years ago. It's all there. It doesn't go away.feedback

The way I look at it, all the things that have happened leading up to this point are steppingstones to allow us to get to that next place in our society. There's always a lot of different perspectives and one of the things that I have found is when you have divergent perspectives, if you can get those people to sit down and talk to each other, they will frequently be able to come up with extremely good solutions. I believe in always giving the first pass to the people who are actually involved as opposed to imposing upon them from above.feedback

Mar 06 2017

[My mother] worked so hard, two, three jobs at a time. She didn't like the idea of being dependent. She always made it clear to us how much of our future was within our own hands, no matter what anybody else said. This is America. This used to be known as the can-do society, not the what-can-you-do-for-me society. And there is a lot that we can do if we are simply willing to reach outside of ourselves and recognize that each person, all of our fellow many, all of our fellow Americans, we are one.feedback

Mar 02 2017

What has happened too often is that people who seemingly mean well have promoted things that do not encourage development of any innate talent in people. Hence we have generation after generation living in dependent situations. It's not that they're bad people, it's that this is what they've been given, and it's all they know in some cases. I think the Fair House Amendment in 1968 was one of the best pieces of legislation that we've had. It was modified in 1988. LBJ said nobody could possibly question this; I agree with him.feedback

Jan 12 2017

We do have to have a mechanism, a backstop of some type; otherwise when someone comes in and buys up the loans, securitizes them, we're probably not going to be able to sell them to the entities that buy them.feedback

Jan 12 2017

"These government-engineered attempts to legislate racial equality create consequences that often make matters worse,".

Nov 22 2016
