(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....
Alot of what the whites are responsible for, other than crimes, are "legal" issues.

What citizens do and what Illegals do are 2 different things.

And what is your field of study?

lol I think something might be amiss with your statistical breakdown. I guess you think that the only white males are "successful, progressive,"? Wow, im glad to hear there's no unsuccessful white males! even if we only make up 5% of the population according to you.

And I had no idea women were not apart of any race, there being no black, latino, or white women.

95%??!

now, are you going to make any attempt at all to back some of this up or are you moving on like every other time?

Obviously, you are either a very frustrated individual (troubled by the success of others), are in the third grade, or just escaped from a mental hospital. If that is the case, accept my sincerest apologies -I never should have been rude to you.
apology accepted my friend

I see you skipped Japanese. C'mon, doc. Let's read your twist on which country defeated the Japanese.

Regardless, my point stands. Mexico was a powerless third world country then, as it is now. And you really should devote some time to proper English composition.
Sorry, but the japanese language was not in question, definetely we beat the japanese with or without a-bomb, point well taken.

How do you think Mexico would react???
Didn't this already happen when Americans started to settle in Texas and California, which was under Mexican jurisdiction (many without giving notice to the Mexican Government)? Didn't they still teach English, U.S. History, and still thought of themselves as Americans? Didn't they hold slaves in a country where slavery was outlawed?

Didn't Mexico get really REALLY mad and end up fighting both the Texas War of Independence and the Mexican-US War?

Don't need to imagine anything. It already happened.

Agreed. Illegals are FAR more likely to violate our immigration laws than US citizens are.....and MOST of the things that whites are responsible for, other than crimes, are legal things. (Probably also true of non-whites as well)...

All mitochondrial DNA is inherited as a single unit, or haplotype, the relationships between mitochondrial DNA from different individuals can be represented as a gene tree. Patterns in these gene trees can be used to infer the evolutionary history of populations. The classic example of this is in human evolutionary genetics, where the molecular clock can be used to provide a recent date for mitochondrial Eve. This is often interpreted as strong support for a recent modern human expansion out of Africa.

Mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) is not transmitted through nuclear DNA (nDNA), and in most multicellular organisms, virtually all mitochondria are inherited from the mother's ovum, as sperm cells do not contribute any mitochondria.

What else would you like know?

Composition does have its place; however, there are times when DECOMPOSITION is equally appropriate, and this could well be one of them....

Perhaps you may want to do a little more research, especially in the case of the State of Texas.

The Mexican government begged Americans to come in and settle Texas and to "take care of the Apache problem" because they themselves were unable to erradicate the native populations.

Once the Americans had subdued the Apaches, the Mexican government began to come in and take the lands that the Americans had purchased and attempted to kick them out of present day Texas.

The Texans were unwilling to comply.

As far as any other "Mexican" lands in present day U.S. territory, 90% was nothing more than ranch land, few cities and no infrastructure. Mexico took the lands from Spain and "owned" it for less than 25 years.

Mexicans were no kinder (and in most instances less so) to the Native Americans in this country than the European invaders.

As a matter of fact, I would venture to bet that there are few descendents of any original inhabitants left anywhere on the face of this Earth. Call it man's inhumanity to man, but I doubt that you could talk any sovereign nation into giving land back simply because you don't agree with the way they obtained it.
