Funny you should bring up the indigenous peoples of Mexico - the way it's written would suggest it's past tense - or happened a loooong time ago(which is where a lot of the "movement" seem to be spending their time while texting on a 4g phone and wearing designer clothes and driving a new car and have never even seen a produce field except in swarmy emotional promos of suffering) - I digress -the enmity between the I's and the Mexicans is every bit as energetic as it ever has been - suggesting not a lot of progress along those lines and not a lot of love lost between them and their border neighbors either if what my conversations with non Mexican emigres can be believed.
This gives the frothy "human rights" dialogue of Mexican lawyers in the immigration trials as "friends of the court" a kind of comedic flavor not to mention the "street demonstrations" but that's something too - Mexicans are nothing else if not melodramatic.
But one of the mysteries that continues to puzzle me - the "immigration" numbers have long since passed beyond "immigration" to whole exodus. Now it would follow that a nation so concerned with human rights would ask itself - what the hell is going on here. Why are our people leaving their families and communities in such numbers? The fact is in my conversations with Nationals that I have talked to - that it appears - deliberate - by denying access to work through several methods - the most spoken about - low wages making it impossible to sustain themselves and their families.
This creates the suggestion of an purposeful "ethnic cleansing" of sorts on the part of the "uber-compassionate" Mexican government.. deliberate ... preferring instead to migrate their social agenda northward ... not northern Mexico who emphatically don't want Surenos in their communities - North America. And demanding self righteously we handle it for them.
I would feel better too, if I thought the liberal crescendo was truly motivated by an understanding of the nature of this phenomena and not by an unconscious sense of righteous superiority ) ie: a missonary zealots saving lost souls or animal rights activists ) - to which M. L. King alluded to all to frequently in his writings.
Not to be out done - the "other side of the coin" has their own casual dating site - F*** Buddies ... it's a Herbert Marcuse wet dream !!
