There are so many things one can say.

More employment for social workers and demand for more money to solve problems that could have been avoided in the first place had not this experiement in social engineering been allowed to move forward.

Why are these people being brought to a country that is hopelessly "racist"? Do they want to experience the pain of "institutional racism"?

The south sure is a different place.

I have great sympathy and concern for these poor people. However, I don't understand this maneuver. I am really progressing to 'isolationist' thinking. No matter what humanitarian efforts we make, and we do this over and over...we are vilified by the world. I think that that $15 billion for African AIDS would be best reduced and some of it sent to Afghanistan and post Iraq.

Why not find them a place elsewhere in Africa, where other Bantu already live? That would have been better for both the Bantu and the US.

Well, thank goodness that were taking in these illiterate Bantus that will add SO much to our society.  You wouldn't want to welcome the displaced White Rhodesian farmers or anything.  That wouldn't promote our greatest goal- Balkanization- er, Diversity.

Here's what I wrote to my Congressman (Roscoe Bartlett, R-MD):

Congressman,

Here is a link to an article in the Atlanta Journal-Constitution about the resettlement of 12,000 Bantus from Somalia in the United States.

http://www.accessatlanta.com/ajc/epaper/editions/sunday/news_e3853704d0f5314400f7.html

Why do we persist in importing difficult to assimilate people into our increasingly overcrowded country? It's time to re-visit our immigration policies and say "Whoa!" for a decade or two so that we can digest those who have immigrated here over the past four decades. I would think with a Republican Congress and a Republican President, we should be able to make some headway on this issue. On the other hand, our allegedly conservative President wants to grant amnesty to millions of illegal aliens.

If Republicans are going to sit on their hands on this issue (Immigration Reform), maybe I'll have to start "wasting" my vote on third party candidates in upcoming elections.

I'm a Swede and don't have (and shouldn't) any say on whether or not the United States should accept taking these poor people. That said, they deserve a chance wherever they end up. If, and only if, they are given proper language training and help to seek out jobs (not government-created jobs of course), they would probably become very hard-working members of any society. I've seen these two critical tasks done both well and disgracefully wrong in the communities I've lived in. Where it's been done well, the "new Swedes" have integrated well and really helped give a boost to local economy and life. The opposite is true where people have failed these two tasks.

The south sure is a different place.

This is a State Dept. program, with Atlanta only being the first of 43 U.S. cities accepting these refugees. What does the "South" have to do with any of this?

So racist that African immigrants do better than native blacks.

These people will probably be wealthier in 3 years (per capita) than Amercian blacks who live in the Atlanta city limits.

Send them to Maine. Those people love the ones they already have. Also it is keeping many people employed running welfare offices.

I'd be willing to bet that the neighborhoods where these social workers live are far from where the Bantus will be living. Isn't there a safe place on their home continent where the Bantus could be resettled?
