How to Talk About Latinos Without Sounding Like Racists Jerks – GOP Training Document Leaked (Video)

AATTP GOP Immigration
Since the Susan B. Anthony list, an organization dedicated to restrictinghealth care for women, recently launched a training program to help teach Republicans how to talk about rape without sounding like ignorant misogynists, GOP leadership has apparently decided they need sensitivity training for their members in other areas too.  A leaked document shows that party members have received a letter from the GOP’s Hispanic Leadership Network that explains how to speak about Latinos while discussing immigrationreform.

A few “Dos and Don’ts” in the document include:

• When speaking about possible temporary visas, residence and citizenship  for those now here illegally, DO use the phrase, “earn legal status.”  DO NOT use the phrase, “pathway to citizenship.”

• When talking about securing our borders, DO use the warning, “enforcement of our borders includes more border patrol technology and building a fence–where it makes sense.”  DO NOT use phrases like “electric fence,” “build a wall along the entire border” or “send them all back.”

• When talking about immigrants, DO use the term, “undocumented immigrant.”  DO NOT use “illegals,” “aliens” or “anchor babies.”

The obvious question though is, if you have so many insensitive idiots in your political party that you have to provide training in basic humanity like, “How to speak about rape without sounding like a sexist pig” and “How to talk about Latinos without sounding like racist scumbags,” do you think maybe the problems runs a little deeper than something like “sensitivity training” can fix?  We sure think so, but we all know the TEApublicans are only pretending to care all of the sudden because they got their asses handed to them in November– largely due to the fact that they have aliened just about everyone who’s not an old, rich white male–anyway.

Looks to me like she did a good job answering your question.  You just didn't like the answer.

Quoting denise3680:



Quoting mama2beautiesnb:

have you ever met an oklahoma country boy/man?????? if not, i understand your ignorance. yes, the farmers and such would rather hire an illegal to pay under table than to hire someone else and have to pay taxes cutting a paycheck. and i have never met an oklahoma man who thought hard work was below them. in fact, ive met more looking for farm/field/construction work because they love hard work and getting their hands dirty. smh... if you cant understand that, then idk what to do about ur ignorance of my proud hardworking state.

Quoting denise3680:


they would still take the job without the benefits.



 So please explain to me why they are not taking them.  Are you implying that these farmers would rather hire foreign born people rather than Americans?  or is it that Americans would not work without labor unions, fair pay for hard work, reasonable wages or competitive pay, that they will not work under the table because then they would not be able to file taxes, maybe because most Americans feel working int he fields is beneath them and there for would rather complain about some one else taking something they don't want in the first place. 

I see your immaturity in a debate or discussion has clouded your ability to think rationally, but to each his own.  I fail to see how me asking you questions is ignorant, it appears ignorance is one that cannot answer without getting testy, have a good day:/

no, i just do not have aquaintances or friends that are criminals. We know ppl who do employ illegals and why they do it, we dont choose to associate ourselves with them.

and you also don't choose to turn them, showing your support for the practice
