If we shipped them back to Mexico to serve their sentence and paid the Mexican government to house them, it would be cheaper for the US. And if the US allocated $10 a day to feed one prison, Mexican government would spend $3. Then who are the prisoners going to complain to? What's the difference if they serve out their time in Mexico, they will return to the US, the same way after serving their sentence in the US and get deported to Mexico they will be back.
Every homeless person in this country could starve to death and Obama wouldn't blink an eye. He clearly doesn't give a damn about citizens considering he has offered work permits to millions of illegals while 23 million citizens remain unemployed. It's becoming difficult to even stomach the sight of him.

Nah, this is a little bit more personal, as it is the girlfriend's stepfather (of an otherwise tolerant family with gay and mixed-race members) trying to end the relationship based on my son's origins. The irony being that it is not evident my son was born in Mexico. He has all the characteristics of a "White" child born in the United States.

But some people can't be help for the baggage of bigotry they carry along with them...

Calling a girl a put@ is acceptable because it's not personal? But someone using a derogatory word on your step-son is unacceptable because its personal? If a stranger said it would it be acceptable?

It's safe to assume that the girlfriend knew where he was born. Any chance the girlfriend may have mentioned it to her stepfather?

Interesting that a comment made to someone YOU know holds no value.

It's been my experience that when parents try to break off a relationship their child is in there is usually a reason. I doubt it has anything to do with his origin. But some people fall back on that position whenever things don't go their way. Victimhood is a powerful tool.

Where did I say it held no value? I think you should be addressing that to IBMuseum who thinks personal carries more weight than non-personal name calling. You could see the intimidation and fear the girl had walking past a bunch of guys drinking, cat calling, making sucky noises and calling her a put@. In both instances, it's wrong.

If a parent is parenting they should be able to sit down and discuss whatever issues THEY have with the girl's relationship. Obviously the step-father and the mother are idiots if they/he can't talk to the girl and have to resort to such tactics to break up the relationship. Those tactics can work against them.

There are plenty of parents who will break up a relationship because their child is seeing someone from a certain ethnic background or race that they, the parent(s), doesn't approve of, who think that their child should be in a relationship with "one of their own". And should the child (assuming over 18) continues with the relationship and it comes down to marriage, then all of a sudden those parents will sing a different tune. I've seen enough of that over my time.

Sorry, you misunderstood. It was directed at IBM.

I was suprised at how easily the cat calls were dismissed but how easily he would believe the step father wanted to break them up for racial reasons considering they are a mixed race household. I guess cat calls aren't a big deal to some people. I know they can make for VERY uncomforatable feelings.

Again, I'm sorry I didn't make that clearer in my original post.

I think the mods would consider this whole conversation off topic but I'll chime in as long everyone else is. I recall a forum where whites were called all kinds of deragatory names such as crackers, rednecks, the geriatric generation (white elderly) where those in the forum couldn't wait till they died off and expressed those sentiments. Whites were told that they are illegally in the U.S. Yes I agree, some people can't help the baggage of bigotry they carry and that was just the tip of the icerberg. How good is your memory?

I apologize in advance to the mods for my off topic remarks replying to the initial off topic remark under this thread. Maybe better to delete this entire thread or we should all get 40 lashes with a wet noodle?
