This always gets me! STEALING JOBS! IMO...one cannot steal what was not theirs to begin with. The reality is american workers were never even a consideration... So in order to take you must have at least been considered correct? Sad but true.

I have a American hispanic girl friend who confirmed something that I have thought for a long time. Mexico has the same racial problems as America. Until we had that discussion and she confirmed my thoughts, I wasn't sure whether they are deliberate or not.

She confirmed:

All light skinned Mexicans are considered "white Mexicans" and the darker skinned (mestizmo) Mexicans are considered racially inferior. I have noticed that the majority of Americans of Mexican descent are "white" while the illegal aliens that are here are primarily darker skinned and from the poverty stricken depths of hell in Mexico.

My friend told me that I was 100% correct in my synopsis. She said that all Mexicans aspire to be associated with whites rather than blacks and that they idolize white Americans. The darker skinned Mexicans are considered inferior. The darker skinned do not want to be associated with blacks in America because we are considered "the bottom of the barrel". Thus the ethnic tensions between the two within and outside of US borders.
Yes it is true and it has a term "The color gradient' they are referring to the spanish idealogy of beauty!

How can you vote for Obama over these issues he stumbled through his whole speech and Senator Clinton clarifed it for him and he was nodding his head in approval?

Did you even bother to watch the debates? When asked the Q. on how to best deal with Immigration Obama could not articulate but stumbled on the q. He choked! And you might want to get that problem checked out now, you might cause permanent damage not only to your teeth but to your esophagus.

I thought I was the only one who noticed that!

Maybe it's some kind of contagious virus, but so many people keep telling me how brilliant Obama is. Yes, he is an intelligent man and might make a good leader one day, but I watched the debates and he had a difficult time handling conflict or criticism. He is very good in front of a crowd that is cheering him on.

I'd imagine the pressure. Imagine on live T.V with millions of viewers. I bet you would be freaked out too.

BS!!! That is nothing but an excuse. He just is not ready for prime time is all. He has proven that with each and every question he does not answer. He is going on looks and somehow got the Caroline Kennedy to say that he was like JFK, when in fact, Carolyn has no idea what her father was like, being that she was barely able to ride a tricycle when he was murdered. Obama is nothing like JFK at all and it makes me sick that some have said he is. JFK knew what he was talking about and had definite solutions and articulated them so the public would know. Obama has not and will not.

Now that Ron Paul is threatening to quit, if he does, so will I. I am literally in mourning about how we are being backed into the corner by the global elites. How did we get here?

Oh just wanted to add: There are ZERO candidates ready for primetime. Obama, not so much because he's inexperienced, but because like all of the so called "top tiered" candidates he is in the pocket of the corporate elite who want all Americans to "have a coke and a smile and ****".

In an age where the #1 news story for weeks was Anna Nicole Smith's death and who the father of her baby was, I'm not sure many people care about the issues or a candidate's qualifications.

The so-called news anchors are at their worst too. Why is the news so much kinder to Obama? I don't know how Hillary Clinton keeps her cool with someone like Wolf Blitzer. I'm afraid to write this because someone will say "oh, I knew race would be brought up!" But the fact is that White people are afraid to question and criticize Black people, so they walk on eggshells. Richard Pryor said that in a concert I saw and the audience (mostly Black) was laughing. I said that to a Black friend (she hasn't called me back. lol) She loved Clinton to death just a few days before the FL primary, yet she voted for Obama. She couldn't give me a straight answer, just that she changed her mind. I asked her what issues she agrees with the most..energy, tax reform, healthcare...and all she did was get defensive. The fact is that color IS an issue when over 81% of one race is supporting a candidate, white or black. I just hope whichever candidate wins the nomination, Obama or Clinton, this race for the nomination won't divide the country even more than Bush already has.
