I am just so sick of of all of the illegals and pro-illegal crowd calling anyone and everyone who disagree with open borders or believes in the rule of law or who happens to be against any illegal no matter where they came from, being called and dubbed a racist an/or bigot when in fact the real racist happen to be Mexican and of Mexican descent. Let's be truthful here people and stop with the PC stuff.

Brings up a point that happened w/my son

He was going to school in the Bay Area and shockingly (roll eyes) a bunch of mexicans went to that school so that is who he would hang out with.

They thought it was funny to nickname him Casper (plus they would call him cracker, whitebread etc.) because don't you KNOW?? It's FUNNY when a mexican (or black or asian) calls whites a derogatory name but it's not funny when it is reciprocated. ppppffftt

I was SOOOO flipping angry at that I told my son if they called him that again he was allowed to call them sp*c ... w*tb*ck etc and laugh because don't you KNOW??? It's so funny to here derogatory names.

(he normally is not allowed to use ANY derogatory names at all. It's disrespectful to our familly since my brother is married a mexican woman though she was born and raised here her mom came here from Mexico (she can speak english, has her own ss# etc and just the sweetest woman on the earth) and my uncle is married to a black woman (classiest woman you will ever meet) and my cousins (his second cousins) are mixed) ..But this time my son had my okay and I would not get angry

Oh yeah, well in this country the only racist or bigot is white and it seems the only person who can commit any kind of a hate crime is white, even though, of course, the murder of those three innocent black kids was most definitely a hate crime and everyone with a brain knows it. It had nothing to do with a robbery. It was based on ethnicity and yet, the illegal is not being charged with a hate crime.

I understand your frustration francej16, I used to live in California, and I know just how messed up the place is with double standards. A Hispanic kid can call your son almost anything he wants and nobody will say a thing about it. But if things escalate and your son gets into a fight after calling a minority a slur, or anything that can be remotely interpreted as a slur, he could get expelled from school, and end up in Juvenile Hall facing criminal charges with possible hate crime enhancements. It doesn't matter what the minority kid says to yours, there's a double standard. The Hispanic kid can even throw the first punch, and if your child uses slurs they will go after him not the Hispanic kid that started the fight.

If it was wrong for a white to call a black, Asian, or Hispanic a name, then it's wrong for them to do it back to a white. Something isn't wrong selectively.
Allowing someone to "do it back to someone else" is saying, it really is okay, just depends on who is doing it. It's more about power than anything else. Now, the minorities have the power to do it, and they don't think it's wrong.

i agree to a certain extent, but i try to live by the golden rule my parents taught me, and also not to judge all by a few...i have seen my share of reverse discrimination, and my children have lived through years of mexican kids calling them names, but on the backside of this, when you lump all mexicans and all of mexican descent racist i do have to disagree, because i know alot of hispanics and not all of them are racist , in fact far from it...
most that i know are the nicest people i know...i say trash is trash, no matter what color it comes in, white , brown, black, purple or green...
it's sad to see you feel the way you do, maybe somehow things will change, and then again, maybe not.

i have come to realize lately that we are all being played. nature created the races, and is the supreme bigot. we are just following the orders of a higher power, that has a plan that only instincts can understand.

The thing that bugs me is WHITE. How come everyone else is supposed to be called by their nationality except WHITE.

"White" now has a negative connotation. I had to take Multiculturalism class in college, and our "professor" said that the day of the white American male is over. That's not all she said. She really hated white men. This class was a soapbox for her to spew her ugly biased stuff from. Some of us went to the dean, but of course, they did nothing, because she called us racists.
