Hispanic Los Angeles neighborhood tells 'white' art galleries: 'Get out!'

Racial diversity, we are told, is a great thing – unless the people moving in are white.  That's why it's no surprise that a heavily Hispanic neighborhood of Los Angeles is calling for "white" art galleries to pack up and get out.
The message on the steel roll-up gate of Mihai Nicodim's gallery could not have been clearer: With obscene language, the spray-painted words condemned what they labeled "white art."
It was not the first time Mr. Nicodim had been targeted by activists in Boyle Heights, a neighborhood long seen as the heart of Los Angeles's Mexican-American community. Just days before, two cars pulled in front of his gallery during an opening and the passengers, their faces covered in bandannas, hurled potatoes, hitting one woman in the leg. At the opening of another gallery, protesters threw beer bottles through the windows.
Earlier this fall, activists placed mock eviction notices in front of galleries. Marching down the street, they shouted "fuera!" — "out!" — and carried signs declaring "Keep Beverly Hills Out of Boyle Heights."
The activists in the neighborhood are making no apologies for the radical tactics and portray themselves as defenders of working-class neighborhoods in the city. They look to other neighborhoods, such as Echo Park and Silver Lake, that were once working class and are now filled with upscale bakeries that sell artisan doughnuts and have replaced mom-and-pop taco shops....
The gallery owners see the focus on race as misplaced and unfair. After Eva Chimento opened Chimento Contemporary last year, she said, two activists came into her gallery, threatened her and demanded that she show Latino artists.
When some people protest low-income minorities moving into their neighborhoods, they are called racist, and the Justice Department immediately swoops in to investigate.  When white people try to open businesses in minority neighborhoods, they are called "gentrifiers," and the government is silent.  It's part of a continuing trend of the government to treat white people as second-class citizens, and all it does is breed racial resentment.
Ironically, most art is neither "white" nor "non-white" unless it's specifically focused on race.  It's merely art.  But demonstrators see too many art galleries and too few taco shops, which is only one way the massive wave of illegal immigration is remaking America.

EXCLUSIVE: Mexican Cartels Using U.S. Election as ‘Marketing Tool’ to Bring More Illegals to Border



MCALLEN, Texas — The upcoming presidential election is having an effect on the recent spike of illegal immigrants that have been arriving to this border city requesting refugee or asylum status, the mayor of this city said.

“The cartel uses what happens in the U.S. as a marketing tool in Central America,” said McAllen Mayor Jim Darling in an exclusive interview with Breitbart Texas. “The need is there (in Central America) but what happens in Washington and the way the news media presents it, they (cartels) say you better get up here. So that causes the surges … We”ll see what happens after the election to see if it slows down.”
Currently officials in McAllen have seen a spike in the number of Central American families and underage immigrants who arrive seeking refugee status. As the U.S. presidential election draws closer, service providers in this border city have been seeing more than 400 immigrants per day who have been apprehended, processed and released.
“It definitely has to be addressed. Congress has to get involved in an immigration policy and foreign policy with Central America,” Darling said referring to the difference between the asylum seekers arriving to his city to turn themselves in to authorities and traditional human smuggling where enforcement plays a role as border authorities try to stop individuals from sneaking in.
When President Barack Obama visited Cuba earlier this year, Darling said, the city began to seen a spike in Cubans who had the belief that the improving relations between the U.S. and Cuba would end the Cuban Adjustment Act that allows refugees from that country to become legal residents.
Breitbart Texas broke the story on the spikes of illegal immigrants arriving to this border city since 2014, when a shift in human smuggling routes pushed massive groups of illegal immigrants through South Texas. The illegal immigrants continued to arrive under the belief that they would be granted amnesty or some measure of relief similar to the DREAM Act. That belief became ingrained after immigration officials began to release hundreds of illegal immigrants with a notice to appear in court at a later date for deportation hearing. That notice to appear became known as a “Permiso” or permit helping drug cartels push that marketing ploy.
“What they (DC politicians) say, what the news media depicts, affects us down here at the border directly,” the mayor said.
As the more dehydrated and weary immigrants continued to be released by authorities into McAllen and made their way to the city’s bus station, local charities and the city began to provide food, shower and rest facilities to the hundreds of Central American families passing through on a daily basis. By providing basic necessities as soon as they are released, McAllen is helping northern cities from having to deal with individuals arriving in worse physical condition.
“We have added another tent with more services, another shower facility and we stretched the hours at the bus station, we were able to get another bus to come down,” Darling said. “(The immigration spike) its stretching the respite center capacity, the bus station capacity, border patrol capacity, CBP (Customs and Border Protection) capacity.”
According to Darling, the expenses for the services provided by the City of McAllen and the local charities have been out of pocket expenses, but they have been keeping detailed records preparing for the federal government to refund the expenses in a way similar to how FEMA refunds municipalities after catastrophes.
