The Murder of Lazaro Tista

Stanley W. Rogouski | There is a quiet apartheid today in most of America that, like the devil with his greatest trick, has convinced us that it doesn’t exist. But it does. The Bantustan is that carriage house behind the dilapidated old Victorian in the Midwest or the one bedroom apartment in Queens that houses three families in rotating shifts. There is now a silent, hidden underclass of over 10 million undocumented immigrants, people who pick your fruit, throw your takeout pizza in the oven, deliver your Chinese food on a bicycle, or do the hard construction work on your MacMansion. They have no right to vote, little or no access to social services, and they are, in effect, long-term residents but not citizens. These people have broken the law but they are not criminals. As individuals, they are more sinned against than they are sinners. But a disenfranchised underclass with no right to vote or organize unions and an expendable pool of temporary workers is a weapon of class warfare that the rich can use against the lower part of the working class, and as such they are already having a destructive effect on civil society and on American democracy. more...  1 Comments
