I would appreciate your honest posts regarding this question, please no sarcastic comments.
If you have nothing good to say, just type "I don't".
Thank you.

Anything positive? I don't see the point in this thread. We don't need your sympathy.

There are many good hispanic baseball players.
South of the border cuisine is very good and many dishes and ingredients that you could not find in supermarkets 10 years ago are now available.
Growing up in a bilingual household and learning to speak two languages is good for a child. (IMO)
Hispanic women wear colors other than black.
This is my opinion only but it seems to me that a hispanic family would rather live a more frugal lifestyle and have the mother stay at home with the children then place them in daycare so the wife could work.
Many hispanics have strong religious beliefs.
There is a very strong sense of community (this can be both good and bad, but for now let's say it's a plus).
Hispanics have fought in all our wars along side everybody else.
A Mexican man invented color television.
Jennifer Lopez made having a voluptuous and curvy (ie. big) butt a good thing.

I am 1/2 Hungarian (my father is a legal immigrant who came here in 1951) yet the only language I speak is English.

No; I have little or no desire to learn Hungarian, although tracing my heritage may be interesting.

In closing; GuyP, I have to agree with you

Who said that, you? Hispanic are not required to speak English either. But the people who cheated on that honduran woman, they were ok, right?
