Like MOST ethnic groups, all of them like to laugh at themselves.

Don't even ASK me about "Mexican Judo"....I heard THAT one from a nephew 20 years ago (two of his grandparents were BORN in Mexico)...it's a GREAT joke, and caused a total belly laugh !...my son STILL mentions it on occasion..

Don't blame you for objecting to serious prejudice, or mean-spirited slurs. But honestly, this is 'kid stuff'. Call it 'stupid' or 'silly'...but not 'mean'...
Everyone can make stupid assumptions about how Latinos hate all Blacks, and all Mexicans are the reconquista and part of MECHa...

Why can't we post a link to a little hatred and "juvenile nonsense" from Americans?

Because some people don't know any better. You do....(by the way, as you know, I LOVE stupid jokes...but they also cause lots of 'flack')

Um your link was for a post started by a post from brownpride.us-I meant I do not frequent that. I don't give a rat's ass what Mexicans or any other country think about me. You post some garbage and try to infer all Americans feel one way about Mexicans. Again you are trying to stir up racial issues because you can not debate immigration-illegal or otherwise -without constantly making it a racial issue.

Are we discussing illegal immigration in a rational manner?

All I see are posts about Latinos and Mexicans.


(Free pass to discrimination incoming "Mexicans and Hispanics bring it upon themselves")

Posting this crap-your OP- is rational?

Um no not every post is about Latinos and Mexicans. You are one of the people who constantly bring that into the debate and then you can cry "racist". Myself and others on this board discuss it rationally. You constantly have to bring race into it-again because illegal = illegal. You have to throw the race card out there because there is no excuse or justification for illegal alien invaders.

Count the OP that are generally about Spanish, Mexican, Latin, Hispanics...remotely tied to illegals. You can continue to deny it though.

I don't need to count. I never said there were none- I said not all of the posts were about Mexicans, Hispanics, etc. And I just went through three separate threads that did NOT mention Latino , Hispanic, etc. Guess what the common theme was? YOU did not post in any of them!- I am sure it is a matter of time before you some how throw racism into those threads too. I went through quickly- I am sure I could have found more if I had the time.

Not all posters post about Latino, Mexican, etc. However being that we share a border with Mexico and the majority of illegals come from there-it is going to be discussed-and it is not racist to do so.

How about posting a link to a blog stating that Hispanics hate Black people...is that making immigration a racial issue?

It appears to me it is ok to cite cultural problems amongst Hispanics, but not amongst non-Hispanics, it is ok to throw generalizations and juvenile comments 1 way but not the other.

This post is nothing more than an attempt at race baiting - and should be deleted.
