My initial reaction to the video is that Ann Coulter is retarded. How can any one say something so stupid? Funny how this is a well educated woman that writes books, but yet is ver y ignorant. It makes you wonder how can this woman sees herslef as a professional or how others can see her seriously?The statement she made makes her look as if she is racist and that she has absolutely no idea about she is talking about. Her logic for saying that civil rights are only for blacks made no sense because this country was built off of the principles of equality and to protect the rights of the people. The fact that you owe blacks civil rights is not a valid argument being that it was wrong in the first place, but no one cared because it was all about making the benjamins. She is just another example of a professional being ignorant.
I believe that civil rights are for everyone not just blacks. Blacks did have to fight for their rights, but this is because a bunch of stubborn white people, including our government, saw themselves as better than blacks. Civil rights have to do with everyone and the equality of everyone in this country. They don’t jus pertain to a particular group of people, but rather everyone has a whole. Civil rights are sort of like the natural rights of the people and that we should all be treated fairly. They can also protect you from discrimination at work and many other scenarios.
This country if founded bt immigrants and we are all either an immigrant or a descendant of an immigrant. This country was built out of hard work, determination, and the hope of making a better life for you and your families. A country to prosper where one couldn’t in his or her country. If the europeans came for the exact same reasons, then why are people treating so harshly the hispanic immigrants? The immigrants of today are better than the europeans that wiped out a whole civilization of people, but yet no one seems to care. The immigrants of today are just trying to provide more for their families so how can anyone discriminate them for that reason? They are the people that work hard and do the jobs that no one else is willing to do because it is to hard. Eveyone at some point came as an immigrant, and those that just see themselves better are the idiots who have no self identity and also have their heads so far up the media’s crap. Without immigrants who work hard and want to make a positive change in their life, America wouldn’t be what it is today.
