You lost me on that one pro-logic.

Scientists can claim any number of hypothesis. The true mark of science is whether or not they stand up to scrutiny by the academic community. This person's hypothesis did not and rightfully so.

I've never denigrated Latin American culture. I have nothing against Latin Americans, as an anthropologist I am in awe of much of the culture and art originating from Latin America.

I've only ever spoken out against illegal immigration. As I have said numerous times, I don't give a rip about a person's country of origin. I only want them to immigrate to my country legally, period.

Yet we're well over half the population. Not that it matters really, I dont know why you would bring such a statistic up.

I brought it up because a member on this forum said something that another forum member claims they didn't, it was about Mexican culture breeds rapists and criminals. To counter that argument I brought up that Hispanics in general aren't the only ones who commit crimes

It would be pretty amazing if whites DIDN'T account for over 50% of hate crimes...since they comprise (at this time) well over 50% of the US population. I'm sure whites are responsible for MOST of everything---most college graduates, most people on welfare, most cases of domestic violence, most of the prison population, most of the heart surgeons, and most of the homeless, most of the 'heroes' and most of the 'bad guys'....just because there are more OF them. (They probably DON'T comprise most of the illegal aliens OR most of the gang-members at this time---but these are 'special' categories)...generally speaking, "most" of any population is going to do 'most' of its 'stuff'...

Just making a point, not arguing with your post....

If he actually SAID this, and I'd noticed it, I'd "debunk" him, too. I must have missed this....but really, ProLogic. is it really worth a response? "All Hispanics" are to blame for crime? How do you even respond to a statement like that?..I mean, seriously?..

Ummm..I'm pretty sure that I was not the topic of that particular post. Stereotyping people based upon race is not my modus operandi.

You should check before you post next time there Pro.

There is no 'Hispanic' gene.

In fact: most people from the UK+Ireland along with Portugal and Spain share the same 'Y' chromosome-------along with most Americans both Anglo and Hispanic.

There's no specifics there. That's nonrelated crap which has nothing to do with the topic at hand.
