a question of pigment

Forced Mexican repatriation in the 1930s is a little known part of U.S. history. Many of the children forced to leave were actually U.S. citizens. The laws passed then are hauntingly similar to some of the dialogue now.

We must not watch in silence.

History will have to record that the greatest tragedy of this period of social transition was not the strident clamor of the bad people, but the appalling silence of the good people. -- Martin Luther King, Jr.
