What is your obsession with Blacks? Are you even capable of formulating a post without injecting Blacks? We're NOT the same, period.

Can you read??

AzBear was saying something like 'whats with you Mexicans and your gangs?'

To which I responded asking if he would make the same statement about Blacks, since it seems that Azbear feels Blacks can do no wrong in this country.

I'm sick of the double standard.

And youre exaggerating if you were to say even a good portion of my posts were about blacks. Sorry, but I dont have any "white guilt" towards Black people.
Im not afraid to bring up the topic of White-Latino-Black relations. Im not walking on eggshells. I see a lot of BS, and I'm calling it.

AzBear did not mention blacks, you did, as usual. If you can only explain your point by referencing blacks, you must not have anything substantive in your arsenal. Guess what? If I were discussing blacks, I would have no need to ever mention Mexicans. Can't you stand on your own two feet?

More and more Black people are facing and admitting to the failures in their overall society-------and, their acknowledgment is really starting to become apparent.

And; African Americans are moving up the socio-economic food chain quite rapidly.

Ask a Black person back in 1978 if within 30 years that there would be two Secretaries of State, a major party Presidential candidate, talk show host, arguably the world's greatest golfer and basketball player, etc------of color.

Think outside the bun, Benicar.

How can you criticize Mexicans/Latinos for gang problems, as if they are the only gangmembers in the country, when there is a very big gang problem among African-Americans as well in this country?


How many times in this illegal immigration forum has the discussion led to all the problems of the Mexican-American/Mexican/Hispanic community?
I feel your pain.

yeah yeah yeah, we've heard all your praising and accolades.
but how would you pose this question

Is it a "damning indictment of their so-called 'culture'" as well?

What “bun” would that be? Sweet, cream-filled, cinnamon?

You have NEVER heard me state that ONLY Hispanics or illegals are involved in gangs. However, when the topic is illegal alien gangbangers, there is no reason to discuss black (legal citizen) gangs.

I have on numerous occasions acknowledged problems with my race. If including black crime, poverty, or gangbangers in the majority of your posts makes you feel better…….go for it!

Well whatever you claim, you don't see blacks sneaking over the border into other countries. They are doing whatever they do in their own country where they belong.

Of course Mexico is sending us it's riff-raff, but that doesn't mean we must accept it.

Thank you! Of course he will never acknowledge there's a problem. Illegal alien Mexicans can do no wrong, because everything is justified in his mind.
