YouTube du Jour: Truth Universal

[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HQN8lR6Qtus[/youtube] Rapper Truth Universal returns with “Immigrant,” a song protesting Arizona’s SB 1070 and other similar anti-immigrant initiatives around the country. In his case, his opposition isn’t only theoretical or moral but personal – he was born in Trinidad. He’s joined on the track produced by DJ Black Panther by Mexican MC Bocafloja.

    There can be but there isn’t.  When people can be criminalized because of their nationality, that’s a problem.  You have mostly honest people who are trying to make their family’s lives better by coming to the U.S.  In many cases, the people are virtually forced here because of the conditions created in their lands by the U.S. or some multinational corporation(s) who are allied with the U.S.  In addition, this is stolen land.  Who are these legislators to say who can or can’t live here?
