As I recall Sweden is using her second or perhaps third language. Let's give her some latitude, fellas.

Now, who said this forum was not about racisim against Mexicans?

Totally off topic, not only is she female, she's perty (Check out the Relationships Forum and check out how beautiful.)

Thanks. Yes, I'm using my second/third/fourth language here, so I do make mistakes.
In "you" I didn't mean Vivski, I meant you as in several you on this forum.
In Swedish we have two words for you: du for you as in one person, and ni as in you for several persons.
I meant you as in ni, since I was addressing the overall mentality on this forum that is very much against people of hispanic origin. Unfortunately, by a someone here who felt inclined to negatively rep me instead of asking what I meant, the you used was interpeted as a "you, vivski".
Cut people some slack once in a while, and be more understanding. Not everyone thinks like "you" (ni)/us, so we shouldn't always jump to the conclusion that we know what the other one is all about.

Sweden, excellent explanation.

In English, you can say, "one" for the plural you.

Such as, "one may feel" rather than "you feel.


Hope that helps.

Citizenship, btw, is country dependent. In the US, one born here is automatically a citizen, even if just passing through. But, if you are an American citizen, and a woman gives birth to a child in a foreign country, each country handles it differently. I only know the rules for the Netherlands (you take the father's citizenship regardless of country of origin).

I don't know the regulations in Mexico, but I doubt that Romney associates himself or his family as Mexican.

Like US law: a person born in Mexico is a Mexican------regardless of the origin/legality of the mother.

As for George Romney: his parents; despite being US citizens were residents of Chihuahua and members of one of the Mormon colonies SOB.

You can't even begin to know how wrong you are. The subject was not whether Mexicans can be elected, It is whether or not Those with Dual citizenship can be elected. And the big question is where their loyalty lies. With the USA or with Mexico.

I speak only for myself but one way to make "you" understood as being more than one particular you would be to say "You all" or "y'all".
