Plain in the city

A plain Quaker folk singer with a Juris Doctorate in his back pocket, salt in his blood, and a set of currach oars in the closet, Ulleann Pipes under his arm, guitar on his back, Anglo Irish baggage, wandering through New York City ... in constant amaze. Statement of Faithfulness. As a member of the Quaker Bloggers Ad Hoc Committee I affirm that I will be faithful to the Book of Discipline of my Meeting 15th Street Monthly Meeting of the Religious Society of Friends.

The Immigration Rally... and a heckler telling folks to "go back to where you came from..." Funny, he does not LOOK Indian...

Whereas, the folks in the first picture are a lot closer to being "Native Americans" -- in fact they probably are! Given the migration patterns, they no doubt have North America ancestors!

Exactly, in fact, if they were born accross the northern boarder, under the Jay Treaty, they would not be excludeable.

i did an AVP workshop focusing on breaking stereotypes. we interviewed a man from bolivia. i look at the faces in your two photos. and i just see a man from bolivia. i see a little girl. and a little boy. and i know there's that of god in each of us. and i know that none of us are illegal humans. i like your photos lorcan. and i like your music. and i like your sweetness.
