When I see photos of the people in the caravan, they all seem to have cell phones.  Who is paying the bill for the phone?.  Are they paying the monthly charges on line or what?


That seems like a fair question and not at all racist as suggested.  One of their complaints is that they are fleeing poverty, yet they have cell phones that they are in touch with those in their native country and elsewhere.  Where do they get the funds to afford these phones and use them if they claim they can't earn enough to live on?

 

The standard answer is that asking about this is racist because their skin color is different.

Can someone here answer these questions?


Your bias towards these people is very clear in every one of your posts.

 

Who cares who is paying their cell phone bills other than their cell phone providers? Are you trying to make some NEGATIVE POINT with the question about cell phones.

 

At any large gathering of people, trash, including clothing, is usually evident. Ever been to an outdoor concert? Once again, your bias colors your comments by labelling their trash "LOOKS LIKE A DISEASE WAITING TO HAPPEN".

 

These men, and mostly women and children are refugees like so many that approached our borders before.

 

It is clear that these people, who happen to be a darker skin, are being met by the same bias that many darker skinned people have experienced when approaching our wonderful land.

 

It is a shame that there are those that purposely attribute negative connotations to cell phones and trash because of their preconception of what these people are like based on a racist president's comments.
