"Harris Miller Hates Black People"

"Harris Miller Hates Black People" is a bit over the top, and not a statement I would support. However Harris Miller, the Virginian high-tech lobbyist running for U.S. Senate, has attacked his opponent Jim Webb for prior statements regarding affirmative action. Miller has even gained the support of black leaders in his state on this issue.

I don't know what Webb has said in the past regarding this issue, however his campaign site clearly states that Webb "fully supports affirmative action for African Americans" and goes on to say that he "has a long history of supporting and fighting for minority rights". Regardless of your views on affirmative action you should take a close look at what Harris Miller has done to set back opportunities for American workers - black, white, asian, and hispanic.

Many of you know that Miller is a lobbyist - well don't you forget it. He has fought on behalf of the IT industry to make it easier for companies to offshore jobs to foreign nations like India and to increase the H-1b visa cap - importing hundreds of thousands of foreign tech workers as labor arbitrage to drive down American wages and displace American tech workers. The minority groups under-represented in the tech workforce are black and hispanics - thanks in large part to the works of Harris Miller on behalf of corporations.

Prior to becoming a tech lobbyist, Miller lobbied on behalf of farmers so that illegal immigration was largely ignored. What you see today are illegal workers who earn on average $9-10,000 per year which is far below the poverty level. These jobs were once good opportunities for low-skilled workers and paid enough to sustain a family. Now these jobs are a ticket into poverty. Once again, Harris Miller has a history of betraying the American worker.

Black, white, Hispanic, or Asian - Harris Miller has sold you out. So Harris Miller might not "Hate Black People" but he certainly doesn't seem to seem to care about their families nor the families all Americans. Harris Miller is anti-labor, and that is not a Democratic ideal.

If you are tired of the special interests running the nation, you should oppose Harris Miller. He represents corporations and their interests. He is a lobbyist - and I think we have enough of them in Washington.

Although, Miller is by far the wobbliest.
