I grasp at straws to communicate like anybody else, so thanks for giving me a benefit of a doubt.

I'm not a racist. That kryptonite works on the politically correct though. I've watched them shrivel up like the witch in Oz, "Oh no, someone called me a racist. I'm meltingggg . ." If I could draw a cartoon, it would be the illegals chasing the politically correct around with this kryptonite, "racist, racist, racist!"

Jose Feliciano, eh? Well, that's my opinion too. Hispanics have a vested interest in speaking out against illegals.

I have had a longstanding policy to never say anything behind a personís back that I would not be willing to repeat to their face. Likewise, I would have no problem repeating any comment made on this forum in person to an illegal alien or anyone else. In spite of my petite stature, I have never been easily intimidated.

Legal Hispanics are no threat no greater than any group.

I am too mature to call people names like Coconut, I will just tell you what I think, and I think you are either not hispanic, have very little blood in you and have been filtered down enough to not care about your heritage at all. I am betting on the first option.
Easy there: Mach50: you by your own admission are at least 3/4th's White heritage courtesy of your Catalan and Irish background-----and, most likely your indigenous background has Caucasian as well. In most nations including all of Latin America, you would be a Blanco I suspect.

Yet I would never join in on the bashing of Hispanic people on this forum like Guy has.

It doesn't matter if my name was Johannes Viken from Norweigan, Swedish and Danish descent I would not draw fire upon Hispanic people for the problems in America.

Back to the OP and article, that I wonder if anyone actually read.

Chavez clearly states that the threat to US is Americans stupidity in saying Latinos are a threat!

Quote:
Latinos are a threat to the nation. Latinos have too many babies. Latinos can't or won't learn English. Latinos refuse to integrate. Latinos are replicating their own culture in the U.S. Latinos are part of a conspiracy to take over the American Southwest.

According to Chavez, these ideas are not only biased, they are divisive – even dangerous. They divert attention from a critical national problem – the legal status of 12 million undocumented workers in the U.S. – fueling a political firestorm instead of offering a solution.
Of course the first post by JDubsMom totally derailed this thread into another downward spiral.

And of course his 'solution' to the illegal immigration will be (drumroll)..............amnesty!

American stupidity, huh? As compared to who? Our illustrious neighbors to the south who have done nothing but make a great big mess out of their own country then go around blaming everybody else?

Q. What do you think should be done about illegal immigration?
I think, basically, that there should be no illegal immigration in the United States.
Until we do something about the Latino Threat Narrative, the anti-immigrant discourse, the idea that illegals are somehow inherently criminals, we're never going to see immigration for what it is. Basically, an economic benefit for the nation.
Why don't you tell all the former employees of all the hospitals and ERs that have been forced to close their doors what a 'benefit' illegal aliens are?

I'm sorry if you think I 'bash Hispanics', but I'll tell you one thing, most of the Hispanics that post on this board deserve to get bashed. All you do is run around here looking for reasons to be 'insulted' because someone said something about your 'culture'.

I've never understood how you can defend a culture that puts no value on obeying the law, a culture that revels in victimhood, a culture that, when left alone takes a nation rich in resources and turns it into a massive slum for 90% of it's people. And yet you DEFEND this crap.

I'd list some more of these 'cultural traits' that I find personally disgusting, but I think you get my drift.

Culture isn't race, or ethnicity. Culture is behavior, priorities and one's value system.

Well-stated, GuyP.....I'll make no further comment, but you're right on target. Don't want to get insulted? Fine...then quit 'pushing' a ridiculous point, and you won't be.

Because for those in denial in terms of the negatives outweighing the positives about those of their race, RACE trumps everything.
