And any prejudices white people have are based on actual experiences also. Now that we agree on that point, why would you hate all other Hispanics? That is quite bigoted, whether you want to admit it or not.

Said 'good looking' Mexican American man would need to be a Mestizo with a Spanish name. A White or Black man of even 100% Mexican lineage would not work for obvious reasons.

I do catch your drift------and, you were not being racist either, just realistic.

when did i ever say that i "hated" anybody? based on my experiences, i met plenty of white people who didn't like me just b/c i was mex american. i grew up in south texas, if that gives you a hint (in the early 70s). the mindset was much different than what it is now. i would prejudge this guy b/c his stance appears hypocritical b/c his immigration procedure is so radically privileged compared to that of other origin countries. i also don't like his hair and his accent.

You are right on about the dry foot wet foot fiasco that we have allowed. That should be stopped and immediately, in my opinion. That does not give any right at all for Mexicans to believe they have some sort of right to enter our country illegally. I am not saying that you feel that way.

I am against that policy and always have. In fact, they should be treated just the same as any illegal that comes to this country. At least we agree on a couple of points and I think that is a good thing.

I live in Fl and I have been very surprised to see how Cubans appear to look down on other non cuban hispanics. Some of my co workers are Cuban, and most consider themself white. Cubans are the most reluctant of all Hispanics to make English their first languge. Dont believe me, spend a day in Miami.

There is a tremendous 'White Supremacist' streak in Hispanic culture------their standard of beauty is white skin and blue eyes.

Having the law to where as, the mother needs to be a U.S. citizen TO BEGIN WITH.. if not.. child does NOT get automatic citizenship would GREATLY reduce the numbers of mexican illegals all on it's own, and we Americans wouldn't have to foot the bill any longer as well!
Whats your source on the 1 million illegal immigrant Mexican women sneaked across the border and had their babies? I'm against this as much as the next guy but lets see your source.

Then I guess American culture is also White Supremacist, our standard of beauty is White skin and blue eyes as well. Disagree? Ask American Eagle or Abercrombie and Fitch.
