America is so diverse with all sorts of individuals, interests and groups. In order to protect their rights, people have taken part in the establishment of organizations that fight for civil rights Sometimes, the civil rights of some people collide with the civil rights of other people.
The Southern Poverty Law Center was the brainchild of two lawyers—Joseph Levin Jr. and Morris Dees. After setting up shop in 1971, they fought to delete the unfair remnants of Jim Crow segregation, bust up groups falling under the label of “white supremacist,” and advocate for people on the fringes of society who suffer from not being straight, cis-gender, documented White male Americans.

The founder of this organization, David Duke, puts on a radio show on Rense Radio a number of times per week. On his radio show, he talks about theories pertaining to how he perceives whites are being discriminated against.

A lot of people argue against the arrival of undocumented immigrants. There are many jokes made about them. There are stereotypes about them—stereotypes that are sometimes true. However, the people who are crossing the Mexican border into America are human beings, and many of them are completely innocent people who are genuinely seeking better lives in a safer place.
These people are coming from violent place where the chance of walking out of your home and getting murdered is outrageously high. If you see pictures of corpses and causalities in Mexico, Central American and South America, you will see why they are coming here.
Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin understand this, and, as a result, have started a fund to help individuals who cross the border. This fund is called the Lacey and Larkin Frontera Fund, and it helps undocumented immigrants in various ways—providing them with amenities when they first come here and providing social services as they stay here.
