Aren't Germans European?

Hispanics can be European, too.

The early wave of immigrants brought with them many socialists and anarchists mentalities that did not sit well with the economy or powers that be. Many protested and refused to fight in WWI (but I don't blame them), most joined labor unions and participated in strikes and labor riots and although we are all better for it now, at the time it sure wasn't helping anyones pocket book. I could go on with more examples of just how ignorant your one sentence is, but I guess that since the Germans are white, then they all right.

Sounds like you've got some issues with Germans that simply minimizing my sentence as just ignorant won't suffice.

I'm still curious as to how hispanics can be european

So I guess that the poverty levels are only okay if they are filled up by uneducated Americans who can't speak (proper) English?

Saying that an immigrant is uneducated is completely ignorant on your part.

I don't have any issues with Germans except for the ones that are still holding on to Nazi values, but most of them moved to Argentina, anyways. Anything else you'd like me to clear up?

Not sure if I need to answer this because I am assuming that you are being sarcastic. I am giving you the benefit of the doubt that you know the answer to this.

Ok Derrado thousands of americans do die from getting killed and accidents. They could be considered a threat if people are getting killed by them. nd most of my stats are from shows like Lou dobbs, glenn beck, etc.

If you are talking about illegal immigrants, they basically are here for job opportunitites which basically affects the "Sun Belt" most places like California, Texas, Arizona, New Mexico, Florida have already been taking over by illegal immigrants, places I would never live. Then again several hundred years ago those states were part of Spanish America, we might as well give it back.

What do you mean "can" be? Most of our "hispanics" are actually mestizos, which is a mixture of European white Spaniard descent and Native American descent. My community is over 40% Hispanic and not only do a solid majority of them hold college degrees and maintain high incomes, but they also come from white, Mestizo, black, and even Asian ethnic backgrounds, but are considered "Hispanic" because of their native country of birth.

To the "third world" commenter, oh yeah, and 65 thousand people, 11 robberies, and you can buy a 2 bedroom condo for 150 grand so it's not exactly a complete bubble, how third world is that? And no, there aren't trash infested slums as soon as you leave. It actually has way more "non Hispanic" white residents outside of it.

This is stupid. This isn't ANYTHING new to the US. Italians, Germans, Chinese, ETC... have immigrated to the US in huge numbers. The next generation just becomes exactly like you and me. this has happened so many times in US history that i just don't see why everyone's freaking out. the only single difference that i have noticed is that many of those who immigrate from Latin America to here aren't attempting to learn the main language. Which is ridiculous. Its okay to have little districts that don't speak English like Chinatown, but when an entire city becomes Spanish speaking (Miami is an example) its a little ridiculous. well, one other thing different is how some are illegal, which im sure other groups would too if they were located directly near the US. The immigration of Latinos/Hispanics/Spanish (in my area they prefer to be called Spanish) should not matter, this is America where EVERY SINGLE person is an immigrant(or related to an immigrant), even native Americans who originate from Asia. Why do people discriminate against immigrants just because "they got off the boat before our ansestors did? Its ridiculous
