Would you care to enlighten us on the "hidden agenda" and how Hispanics will become the majority? Are you relying on illegal aliens being granted amnesty?

This portion of the population lives quite differently than Americans that are Latino. Pretty much their only link is that they are all Hispanic. I lived around a part of this peasant population as a kid for about 10 years before I moved to a larger City. Some of my best friends were/are Hispanic and even they looked at these migrant workers with disgust while I was in Junior High and High School. They lived in the abandoned houses in the area with no running water, electricity or toilets while they worked in the fields removing weeds. The kids didn't go to school but just lived in the abandoned houses with the Mother who stayed home in most cases with a large number of them. We didn't view it in shock or pity but disgust. If something came up missing most of the time the Sheriffs knew where it would be. At night you would see them sitting around campfires getting drunk and singing.

So just remember that there are large parts of the Nation that deal with Illegal Immigrants, their behavior and culture. In a lot of cases their only exposure to Hispanics are these Ilegal Aliens. It is what it is. My ex didn't worry about it as she had the same feelings and emotions concerning Illegals as I did even though she is Hispanic.
So, you can either differentiate and not be offended or feel you have close ties to people only because you are the same color. What's it worth?
That comment about me being offended was geared to the original post that started this.

I live in Connecticut and I don't have a lot of exposure to illegal immigrants as I would if I lived in Texas or CA. The main hispanic population here is Puerto Rican and Dominican.

If there weren't so many I really don't think it would be such a huge deal. As they are desperate to come here Americans have been forced to be just as desperate to keep them out due the problems they have created by their presence. Please understand that.
oright, well agree to disagree, but ill be back, this was fun, a real eye opener, and what i thought was gone in this country [rascism] is very much still alive!!! very sad!!!

When you return, bring REAL ammunition. You've been doing nothing but shooting blanks.
