This was what I was always afraid was going to happen when the sleeping giant was awakened. I am Hispanic and was born in this country, as were my parents and the family I know of.

What is going to happen when this simmering cauldron finally breaks and it all boils over? Will there be race and ethnicity killings and such as that? I pray not but the damn illegals have brought this on the law abiding Hispanic citizens who have nothing to do with the illegals or the people who seem to be all for them and open borders.
Your post is a textbook example of what is called 'internalized repression'. Look it up.

You seem to not know what you are talking about and you really need to get your information from places other than your cereal boxes.

I have to laugh when I read the posts from the illegal lovers because they are hurting so bad because they are slowly losing this battle that they have this need to call names and post ridiculous posts about people they know nothing about.

I sure do. I see it all first hand.

That's why we have the unwillingness to learn a word of English, the Mexican flags plastered everywhere, the high drop out rates and climbing teen birth rates. That's why the La Raza groups boast of "reconquista" and how we had better all start learning Spanish because this land is theirs now.

Excellent Post! As a black woman not only do ITA, I understand and sympathize with you. You are a proud American of Latino descent as I am a proud American of African descent.

I am sick of the MSM trotting out Jesse, Al and the other clowns that THEY assume are my "representative" and I also detest the phrase: Black Community. Just as blacks do not all share one brain cell, voice or opinion, neither do latinos. While I am not a supporter of Obama (because of his over the top liberal/OBL, DREAM ACT amnesty stances) if he gets elected I am hoping that the MSM will finally let all hype and pretense of the civil rights pimps and their government sponsored/taxpayer funded pimping die.

That being said, unfortunately far too many Latino citizens marched alongside the illegal aliens waving Mexican flags and demanding OB and amnesty, which in and of itself not only racially charged the issue but creates a huge problem for those with your view.

LaRaza, LuLac and a few other "hispanic civil rights" groups are very much to blame for American latinos being lumped into their agenda with the demands of illegal aliens primarily from Mexico. LaRaza and other such racist hate groups have deliberately blurred the lines of legal and illegal hispanics (as do many IA's on this board) not only to make the issue one of race but to falsely increase their numbers which allows them to receive more tax dollars for "their cause." They have even gone so far as to hitch it's supporters to Jesse's pimp mobile thus forming the Latino branch of the Rainbow Push Coalition.

I have written letters to and posted comments on the message boards of several media outlets with regards to how I feel about this travesty of racial injustice and the assumption that we are all in agreement with the race based opinions of Jesse and Al.

Hang in there, the sky is falling upon the heads of IA pimps, supporters and IA's in general. The masses can no longer pretend that illegal immigration is not destroying the lives of Americans and fabric of America itself. Here's hoping racially incited violence does not occur as a "solution" to the problem of illegal immigration.

You too? I'd say you summed that up quite nicely.

That's ok it's the thought that counts. I have found myself in the same position when wanting to rep you.

And what crushes a 'MEChA' type Latino is when they are reminded that the Spanish language and Hispanic culture were imposed on the Aztecs, Mayans, etc. by the Spaniards-----who are mostly White.

Genetically speaking: most men in England, Ireland, Netherlands, Wales, Scotland, Portugal and Spain have the R1b Y chromosome phenotype------along with most Mexican and American men.

Even I carry R1b and my father is from Hungary (maybe one Hungarian in eight has that trait).
