Which is odd being that you are also a Mestizo (White-Asian lineage).

I've had the same thing happen. I had to run down to a shop in National City to get a boat part after work so I didn't have time to swap out of my tie. My daughter was with me and after we walked through this junk yard to purchase the part she said a couple guys said to raise the price of the part based on my color and car I drove (beemer convertible). I decided to leave and told them I can buy that part anywhere. Morons, they just lost a sale. They quoted me over the phone then raised the price to almost a new part price after they saw me.

I see that quite often here in Southern Arizona too. But just let me try to pull the stuff they do and see what happens. Not that I care anymore...I've grown numb to the tired old taunts of racism/xenophobia they love to throw around.

"Archie Bunkerism" is quite the norm for many Mexicans here in Cali.

I`ve seen and have experienced this too.Also, my sil is Mexican and she told me that a lot of them will say things against white people. The media always portrays that only white people are racist. There is racism in every group of people.

Never mind that Mexican culture is White supremacist unto itself--------the standard of beauty SoB is white skin and blue eyes.

Hypocrites (with a giant streak of jealousy as well since most Latinos here are 'brown').

Far beyond "look like me". This describes something much deeper and darker than mere skin tones or ethnicity. They will only respond to other Mexican nationals. This condition goes a long way in explaining why it is necessary to have more Mexican consulate offices than we have state capitols, why we see a dual government materializing before our very eyes, the resistance to assimilation, the disdain for Americans - and other nationalities of which we have many - of all colors, the disrespect for American law, the animosity towards everything American, in short everything we hate about their
behaviors and attitudes and the whoring of our national sovereignty by merchants and politicos.
you know a mexican or native american most likely said the very same thing when pasty smelly pilgrims or ragged stinky racist settlers enroached upon this country in the first place...

Is that a real thought? Mexican culture is White Supremacist unto itself??? hum i wonder if thats on wikipedia?
History 101 buddy Mexico was conquered by white people that instilled white supremacy which is still apparent today through the Mass Media but unlike the US, Mass Media does not fall under National Culture.
The Mass Media is run and owned by the wealthy elite of Mexico as well as Transnational Corporations of whom the great majority are all WHITE MEN. Never where Indian or Mestizo...
