Well -- that was your people's mistake when they decided against having immigration laws or enforcing a border.

What did you think was going to happen when you let in all those people who didn't act like they wanted to assimilate and become part of your people?

Just because you all made such a terrible mistake does not mean that we should also.

Are you saying that the majority of Americans treat you like a second class citizen? If not, then you are no different than anyone else who is the victim of racism from "some" including anglo-whites. Curious to know what tribe were you ancestors from?

There is a huge underclass forming right before our eyes due to illegal immigration.
what are you talking about? this topic has nothing to do with illegal immigration. it has to do with being non-white in this country.

and for your information, who is in favor of "illegal immigration"? since I am not, your post is moot.

FYI, most Hispanics including Mexicans are half white from their Spanish ancestors.

At Newport Beach or Orange County we do not have racism but for some folks they are experiencing racism. I would like your input please so I know where to stay away from !!!

I have had in the past a lot of white guys shouting out "where did you steal that car from?" and stuff like that.

I remembered once a white chick walked up behind me and spat one me I had no idea why perhaps because i wasn't white.

Thanks

I am a native american and I have not been discriminated against except by other native ameicans. I have earned two degrees. one in socialogist and special education and and I have never lived on a reservation and got free medical. I paid into the system and draw retirement. I never let myself be discriminated against. You were probably mistaken for an illegal aliens? uh?
If I was ever spitted on, I would be kicking ass yet.

I found the OP hard to read, as well as a few other of their posts.
1. My woman this and my woman that. Property mentality? Sort of crude, like calling ones wife your old lady.
2. A woman walked up and spit on the op? Maybe she heard him refering to his girl friend or wife as his woman and she was offended.
I don't know, maybe I am old fashioned and have an outdated sense of respect for my wife. To call her my woman would be like describing her as a piece of property or an object. She certainly means more to me than say my watch, or my coat, or my dog.
Second class citizen. Well it might be race based. Or it might be elitists looking down on those they feel superior to.
I have suffered from the later. College educated managers tend to look down on the technitians where I work. When I did construction I saw it, but it didn't bother me. They act superior but who do they call when they can't figure out how to fix the most simple of things?

No I said "some circles" not most circles.

Well......Ah..... Mohawk Indian . St. Regis, to be more specific. Why should you care?
