Oh. Right.

Any Mestizo Hispanic who calls you or Choctaw2 a racist would be a flaming hypocrite being you two are about 1/2 American Indian.

Well the logic of the Mestizo Mexicans is that because they are part or all "indigenous" (which, really, isn't a good term since even American Indians are technically migrants from other parts of the world), they should be allowed unfettered access ANYWHERE on the North American continent.

We'll leave aside the fact that the dividing line between "North" and "South" America is actually artificial in and of itself (minus the man-made Panama Canal).

I can live with it, too. I have a Mexican husband and two half-Mexican kids.

Please read my original quote:

Veiled Prophet is 1/2 Apache------any Latino with significant indigenous heritage would look silly calling her a 'White' Racist.

Most Mexicans are essentially American Indian themselves but care to not admit to it due to the White Supremacy in Hispanic culture hence using different labels to identify with-------La Raza for one.

We should not take the law in our hands when it comes to federal issues.

Yep, that is the way it seems. But I don't care either because I'm sick and tired of hearing that. Calling us racist is just their way to divert the issues and keep them looking like "the poor poor VICTIM."
