You are are a criminal who has run out of victims in your home country however, to the north is a rich, trusting country with a constitution and a bill of rights that protect even you, a criminal and a petty thief. So, you sneak into the country and discover that there are systems in place that will allow you to rob the country blind with no fear of reprisal save for the slim chance that you could be deported. So, after of years living as a parasite you decide that life is booring so you pick up the host countrys flag, desecrate it, march on the capital screaming for the legal inhabitants to;
"Get the $%^& out!"
So, the question is; now that you have enraged the locals, what do you do???

I'd quietly sneak across the border----I'd keep my ears open, but my mouth shut----I'd be thankful to be there, and I'd go to great lengths not to annoy the locals, even if they were dumb and naive. I'd figure, "why rock the boat?", and I'd be so happy to be there that I'd start asking around as to how I might legally stay. To help in this, I'd make great effort to learn the local language. This is GREAT, I'd think...these people may not know how to cook what I like, or how to party, but boy do they have the jobs!

I'd go out of my way to try to figure out what these people had that was missing from "back home"....surely, they are only human, I'd reason; therefore, their prosperity must be a result of their system. I'd want to emulate and adopt that system as my own, so that I too could prosper.
One thing I certainly WOULDN'T do is get into public "spectacles"--the last thing I want, I'd figure, is to bring attention to myself in a negative way. I'd know that to show belligerance and disrespect for the locals (who might not all LOVE me, but surely were at least TOLERATING my presence) would threaten to "wear out my welcome", and I SURE wouldn't want THAT to happen. I'd ask myself, "what, if anything, can I do to ingratiate myself into this generous society so that they come to appreciate me?" I'd be especially careful to instruct my teenage children on how to behave.




So true, could not have said it better!!!!

At yearend 2005 there were 3,145 black male sentenced prison inmates per 100,000 black males in the United States, compared to 1,244 Hispanic male inmates per 100,000 Hispanic males and 471 white male inmates per 100,000 white males.
So, including legal and illegal Hispanics, they are far fewer in number than Black Males, perhaps your alls anger is misplaced?

Hispanic is not a race: it is a political label only-------most so-called 'Latinos' in this country are American Indian who typically do not wish to accept it due to the White Supremacy in Hispanic culture.

And too; many Latinos have a macho attitude that tends to **** off Americans-------and, Castilian Spaniards in Spain as well.

The Latinos whine about wanting 'respect'--------not a good thing to demand over in Spain considering the latter's flagrant White Supremacist attitude towards 'morenitos'.

Your point?

Hispanic, deriving from the Latin name of the Roman province on the Iberian peninsula. Today references any person descended from the Iberians who came to the new world and or sharing the hispanic culture.

Simple.

The USA is an Anglo-Saxon based culture with its rule of law--------why should we be forced to accept a 'culture' that has proven itself to be inferior in almost all regards?

NOTE: I said 'culture'; not race/ethnicity.

If Latin American culture is so great: why do so many of their citizens from there drool @ the thought in living (illegally) in the USA?

Patience is a virtue - I think it will take too long to get that big screen TV I want - so, I will just take yours - Is that OK with you?
you cant take mine, but you can come over and watch it with me. i might even let you borrow it.

but in real life, i have no big screen. im quite opposed (personally only) to tv.

And, you then would also understand when you are discovered, detained and then deported?
