    Immigration is about children, so flood our schools with diseased gangmembers who sell drugs, rape kids, and behead snitches, or else you hate children.

    We will never meet on common ground unless we all get on the same page. How can we ever get on the same page if we don't teach our children tolerance, to be open, and brainwash them with thought and ideas of prejudice. A few years ago, one of my white friend's daughter mentioned to two other black children in my presence, that her mother told her that "black people are bad and you have to watch out for them because they kidnap kids and kill them." The kid turned to me and said my mom said that you are ok because you are a doctor and you won't kidnap and kill us." Now with that type of thing being fed to kids, and instilled into their brains, it is not uncommon that they grow up with racial intolerance. We will not move forward until we educate children otherwise. Everyday I see angry, frustrated, unrelenting people who are not willing to give a black person the benefit of the doubt. We are judged everyday nonstop. I see it, I live it, I breath it. It never lets up. The only time a white person is willing to have a conversation with me is if I mention that I am a doctor. Otherwise, the treatment is animal-like. The bitterness and anger and the mere disgust is forefront. Some whites thoughts about black people is worn on their sleeves. They act so very nervous when we come around. Some react with scorn and disgust and it hurts. It hurts to know that people hate others just because.
    I will be very difficult to come to common ground, because behaviors are very, very difficult to change. It will take decades of training and just being among each other and learning tolerance. Compassion, love, peace, mutual love for one and other. I look forward to the day when that happens. We need to stop the "Country Club" mentality. We need to stop brainwashing our society with ads, commercials and everything else white. I don't see little dark-skinned children in ads and commercials. I don't see them in major roles on tv. We are all people and we need to address this issue yesterday. It is time to get back to the days of the Civil Rights Movement.
