Immigration isn’t the problem, YOU are.

Written by Tiffany Flemister

Tiffany Flemister –  featured author

As you all know, our Commander in Chief is taking measures to have undocumented students be deported even after they have shown to be productive members of society who are working hard to get their education. I honestly find this to be extremely hypocritical. America as we know it today was built on the backs of non natives, whether they came through on Ellis Island back in the 1800s or by deadly force during slavery. It seems to me that non citizens are only of value when we can exploit them.

When they start getting into good colleges and getting the jobs you feel entitled to, it becomes an “immigration” issue. It’s not an immigration issue, it’s a racial issue and an entitlement issue. Nobody batted an eye when undocumented people were limited to manual labor jobs that underpaid and over worked them. So many of our ancestors came to this country seeking refuge from harm and to create better life than they were given by default.

To take it a step further, America is a stolen land built up by stolen people. Nobody really has a right to be here more than anyone else. I don’t care if slavery and Native Americans dying at the hands of Settlers was hundreds of years ago. It matters because Americans take pride in the fact that this happened but are now angry that other people want the same opportunities they have been afforded for generations.

Undocumented students and workers aren’t why you don’t have a good paying job. They aren’t why you can’t get into the school of your choice. You’re the reason why. You and your forefathers have used others as stepping stones for centuries & you’re panicking because it’s no longer an option.

To sum it up, I really just want everyone to stop blaming immigration for America’s problems. The source of our issues is refusing to learn from the past & doing better by those coming after us. If you want to succeed in life, you have to do the work. Expecting others to limit themselves because you’re lazy is complete bullshit. Stop clinging to your privilege, entitlement, classism, and racism. Get up off your ass & make it happen.

If opportunity passes you by it’s because you allowed it.

A fond farewell indeed

A fond farewell, indeed, to the most influential beings of my time. Granted, I’ve been alive only 26 years, and an adult only eight of those years. But, there is something significant about that number “8”.

Eight years ago, I participated in my first local and national elections; and what a special first time it was. As small as it may seem though, I made history. Something I’ll be able to tell my grands one day. The day when only monuments and stories linger. People take small things like that for granted.

Throughout these last eight, I’ve seen nothing but the epitome of a leader. A leader who represents the nation from which he was birthed. I couldn’t have been more proud to see everyone (most of everyone) be on one page. Forward.

Forward is what we must continue to do. The Devil is out working everyday, but it’s up to us not to give his ass the time of day!

obamaI hope to continue to see this influential figure make waves nationally and in the community because his legacy will always be remembered. The urgency of “sticking together” has never been stronger.

Thank you Mr. President

How Facebook can help you on Election Day.

Over the past years many users have gravitated away from the ancient social media platform, Facebook. The social media mega site has lost users due to easier and more direct interactions from Twitter and Instagram two sites that basically cut the fat off of what Facebook was allowing, one that only updates status (twitter), and one that only uploads pictures or videos (Instagram). 

The one thing these two sites don’t have that the Facebook mega site has is a larger space for news and more add-ons for more real time updates. Facebook is the most informative social media site because of the recent add-ons like the one that lets you know if your loved ones are safe in an area of natural disasters. With recent hurricanes hitting the coast of the United States and surrounding islands people with families in those areas are typically in the dark with how their loved ones are doing. Facebook has a check in app that lets the user record their safety in the area so the people not directly affected can know their family is safe and secure. 

Facebook also streamed every political debate via their site so folks without access to television could still watch the debate and stay up to date with the current election. And if that wasn’t enough Facebook has just rolled out a new add-on that will allow you to see the candidates on the ballet for the election on Nov. 8. The add-on gives you all candidates locally and nationally and gives you inside information on what their campaigns stand for, giving users all the tolls they need to elect the right people to run the country. 

Facebook is making strides on making the life of its users socially easier by putting everything you need to stay current is right in your pocket. Regardless of who you vote for check out the new Facebook add-on and check out the candidates that will represent your locals area as well as the country. Don’t be blind going into the polls only knowing if you are going to vote for Clinton or Trump, be educated before you get there. 

Click here for the Facebook add-on.
