I have never seen other posters rebuke arizona bound for some of the things he says about hispanics. They always manage to overlook somehow.

Hmm.. and I suppose White people don't? Whites contribute to over 50% of all hate crimes.

Funny you should mention that, a while back he posted something really getting into depth why all Hispanics are to blame for the crime in America. About 3 people out of the entire immigration forum debunked him on that one. 97% said nothing.

I think if you stop and quantify the data, you'll find that it is the same tiny minority that promotes those views.

So you also have a degree in Genetics and how Hispanic genes are the "bad ones", the ones that create crime? You should check YOUR data and see that it is the minorities in low-class neighborhoods which resort to crime.

Hate crimes against what? Hispanics have more hate crimes against Americans than we do against them.

Hate crimes in general. Federal Bureau of Investigation - Uniform Crime Reports

FBI: Hate crimes jump nearly 8 percent - CNN.com (http://www.cnn.com/2007/US/law/11/19/hate.crimes.ap/ - broken link)

Now, how did you extract that little tidbit from my post?

I've never even come close to denigrating Hispanic DNA, which, by the way, is a misnomer and doesn't exist. "Hispanic" is a cultural designation and not a racial designation. I have never said anything that remotely resembles the statement that Hispanics have a genetic marker which promotes criminal activity. (There is no such genetic "proclivity" in any race of peoples by the way)

I also never claimed to have a degree in Genetics. I said I had a degree in Anthropology, i.e.; the study of man, which is a broad overview of the four subfields of Anthropology consisting of Cultural, Biological, Linguistics, and Archaeology studies.

Just when I start to think that there is hope for you Pro, you go and completely misquote, twist, and make-up posts to attribute to me.

Stop it.

Funny how a question mark can change an entire post. It should of been, "Now you have a degree in Genetics?" What about that scientist that claimed that Blacks were genetically inferior to Whites? there was an entire study on this. Ironically, the scientist was something 16% Black himself. But did you really say that Latin American culture breeds criminals?

I tend to try to ignore true ignorance which is why I've had User2 on ignore for months now. When you try to reason with someone who likes to make blanket statements which include a large number of people, it goes in one ear and out the other. You're not going to change their minds, because that is how prejudice works. I've rebuked several people in this forum for their all encompassing racist statements regarding entire groups of people. They completely ignored me and continued to blab on. Now I simply ignore it unless it gets really ugly. Then I report it. I'm not the prejudice police.
