I was curious and looked up the word "Mejicano"... meaning Mexican or Mexicano.

Me thinks the person just meant (a) for female and the (no) to be towards a male.

I could be wrong as I am in some cases.

<<SHOCKER - Mexicans Want to Deal Only With Mexicans - Americans Not Welcome>>

This is why I don't understand why so many politicians want to grant amnesty to millions of illegal aliens. I know----Democrats think they're going to gain voters, Republicans cheap labor, but don't they know if there's a majority Hispanic population, they aren't going to vote fot anyone named Clinton, Obama, Pelosi, Reid, Bush Romney, Giuliani, etc. They're going to vote for Martinez, Gutierrez, Villaraigosa, Garcia, Gonzales, etc. Politicians with European or Asian ethnicity, are literally voting themselves out of office if they vote for amnesty.

Remember that Latinos (of any actual race) are only about 15% of the US population---------and, they are not noted for voting compared to American Blacks.

As it is: the tide of public opinion has turned against illegal immigration; it seems that every attempt for amnesty, etc. backfires these days

The meaning of the word "Mexico" is unknown. However if you found the meaning, why don't you post your links and enlighten us with your knowledge of Mexico.

Tough to do being that I probably read the definition in a book prior to the Internet.

I was led to believe that 'Mexico' was based on the Spanish word for 'mixed'; as relating to Mestizo.

Frankly; I was not aware of the term 'Mexica' till fairly recently.

I always noticed this because a lot of Mexican immigrants (legal or illegal) will be quick to talk about how they are cheating the system and how the "gringos" are stupid. Also, those were the same people waving US flags at immigration rallies only because they were afraid they were going to get deported. When those rallies are over, do you think they actually keep those flags or have any interest in waving them again?

And those 'Mexicans' you just described have proven how truly stupid they are; their antics have enraged many Americans----------to the point that we want them out of the USA.

Are we discussing illegal immigration or "a lot of legal and illegal" Mexicans in general?

I used the term 'Mexican' in quotation marks to describe both illegals from SoB and Americans of that heritage who are Quislings against the USA.

Yeah, and that's why they get screwed over by the white elite.

The Blacks, Chicanos, Natives "dwelled" on it to fight for their rights. Compare America 40 years ago to America today. Need I say more?

"really interesting". Typical chauvinist.
