Confessions of a former anti-immigrant activist

Robb Pearson got hooked on being noticed -- and then he got over it. He realized that the attention he'd gotten for agitating against immigrants had morphed into across the board anti-Latino racism. And that wasn't where he wanted the country he loved to go.

Given the incitement to racial rage at the President we're seeing these days from opponents of Obama's healthcare reform, Pearson makes an inspiring model of how good people can figure out they've gone off track and find their way back to community values they thought they were defending.

H/t Citizen Orange.
