Hey cut the youth some slack. I have seen him learn and change his position when provided with good data. That can not be said about many 17 yr olds I have met. Like all of us when we were 17 he has his opinions sometimes they are in error but at least he is trying to learn. Besides LOL I like prologic.

I like him too

but as a friend who cares about you prologic, I hope you take this advice as something to help you and not to put you down, you are very young amigo and still need to learn a lot of things from life, there are 2 ways to do it the easy way (by wisdom) or the hard way (by painful personal experience) some pearls of wisdom for you from a paisa:

Respect if you want to be Respected
Love if you want to be Loved
Listen if you want to be Listened
Humility is one of the most powerful weapons in the world you wouldn't believe how this quality if you get to develop it will take you far in life.
and finally if you want people to change, then set the example change yourself, and you'll see magical things happening.

Love and Respect!

It is up to me to create my own opinion and I suggest you respect it.
Pro Logic, Respect is a two way street and we all have Our Own Opinions too. I suggest you respect that as well. If you want to learn, Learn to listen with both ears and try to realise, you weren't born knowing every thing and neither were any of us, we never quit learning until we die. Don't assume because we are angry with this illegal situation that we are racist as we are constantly being accused. Most of you who tend to show your pro-illegal standing are the ones who keep saying "Hispanic/Mexican" all the time or, "my /our people". We keep trying to tell y'all They are not the only illegals we are dealing with here. It really sounds like y'all are the racists if there are, indeed, any here on this forum.

Does Mexico have the equivalent of something like the American Red Cross or Salvation Army? Somewhere that maybe the corruption is a bit less and the aid sent would actually get to where it was intended to go?

I believe if you have read my posts I show my opinion on both sides. I know I don't know everything, I know from what I read in the newspaper and discuss at school when its time to share current events.

Hispanic - is used to refer to modern Spain, and to the Castilian language, and to the Spanish speaking nations of the Americas.

People who speak Spanish can be labeled as Hispanic. For me, I don't really care if someone calls me Hispanic, Latino e.t.c.. I know they mean the same thing. I am not offended. Oh and, when I registered for my SAT's there is no column for American of Mexican decent. They label Mexicans who were born in the U.S as 'Mexican American'.

I remember them having "Angeles Verdes" or something like that. Basically people who help out others on the road. If your car dies down e.t.c
