But if we don't like their culture, we're rascist. They have the right to not like certain cultures as much as anybody, but now they aren't in Mexico anymore and killing people because of that is not acceptable. Killing for most reasons isn't.

Some Nordic German White people are Jewish; some Nordic German White people are Nazi's; same race/ethnicity----------different cultures.

And; despite my being a Nordic White but not Jewish, I still detest the racist aspects of Nazi society.

I have know literally dozens of Mexican-Americans, Mexican immigrants, and quite a few illegals, over many years. Many of my in-laws, and THEIR in-laws, are married to Mexicans, some of whom "jumped the line" in decades past. Not ONCE have I ever heard anyone of these people express ANY support for these 'nutty' groups, with the excetion of a few teenagers. (Care to go over some OTHER things teenagers "go for?")

I continue to think these are basically a few misguided, deluded souls, led by a few 'nut cases', many of whom are legal citizens, and many of whom are American Born....(can you say "college campus"?)

I have NO use for these folks, but in my many years of close experience, I can assure you of the disdain in which they're held by the vast majority of the "community". Believe me, these guys are a laughing stock to the hardworking people who watch their outrageous antics.

PS I do happen to be close to ONE guy..won't be more specific than that. He's a college professor. Every now and then, he's invited to give a rousing "Aztlan" speech for which he shows up in HUGE sombrero and even a serape, proclaims a few things to THUNDEROUS applause, then sneaks out the back way, into his sports car, and off to his gated community for a 'nightcap' beside the jacuzzi with his WHITE wife.

Needless to say, the family teases him unmercifully, to which he 'winks' and smiles....in apparent agreement. Quite a natural-born showman, (but probably somewhat to the RIGHT, politically, of the TYPICAL college professor)...

"F—K YOU, this is still Mexico," says a popular LED-illuminated sign appearing in car windows on California highways.


The sign refers to the fact that much of the American Southwest belonged to Mexico until the U.S. siezed it in 1846.


Now some Mexicans want the land back. As a Comanche Indian, I have a problem with that.
Quote:
We Comanches pushed the Spaniards out of Texas and eastern New Mexico over 200 years ago. Neither Spaniards nor Mexicans ever managed to return.
Quote:
The group leaders – most of whom were white – kept telling us we had to build solidarity with Mexico’s "indigenous" people. But we couldn’t see the purpose. We were American Indians. What did we have to do with Mexico?
Quote:
In Mexico City, we saw a troupe of "Aztec" dancers. I’m afraid we didn’t connect with them either. Actually, we felt kind of sorry for them. No one was watching their dance, and, to be honest, it wasn’t that great. A lot of slow-motion arm waving, and not much legwork or rhythm. They’d never cut it at a Comanche pow-wow.

If this nation was being overrun by Haitians, would the sentiment be the same?

I remember when boat loads of Haitians who tried to come to Florida illegally, were turned away in the water and returned to where they came from.

Why would the US governement be harsher to one group than another, (especially when Haitians were escaping their countries with barely their lives because of political strife). Just doesn't make sense at all to me.

I guess the USA has already reached the quota for black people, but has a wide open door for the latinos.

If push comes to shove, I’ll be standing with the Anglos this time. One thing whites and Indians have in common: We respect the American flag.
The above does not surprise me: there is bad blood between our American Indians and many Latinos-----------Indians have made derogatory remarks to me about Mestizos and Latinos have cracked about Native Americans to me as well.

I was able to access that Aztlan website............had to chuckle at their liberal use of Spanish-----------the language of the (mostly) White Conquistadores

Lol, thank you for posting radical non-sense that most latinos do not listen. I've never even heard of that . It's a funny read though
