Perhaps the reason less birth control is used less among Hispanics is due to the majority being of the Catholic Faith.

Just a thought.....

Californio is a reasonable poster, and reads both sides even as we all disagree. My question to you then, is why does there seem to be an emphasis on quantity of life rather than quality of life amongst amongst this culture? Families would have far better chances for improvement of everything that matters in living life if there were less children for which to pay. The majority of Catholic families of my own acquaintance do not have large families, although granted most are American born.

I actually refute amc's claim from personal observation that "immigrants from anywhere don't learn English but their kids do." Not where I live, L.A., illegal immigrants central. It's predominantly the latino families that retain, occasionally, generations of non-English speakers, not people from other parts of the globe.

Aren't watermelon seeds Black and also white?!
You mean this stereotypical caricature? News - Colusa County defends artists of watermelon display - sacbee.com (http://www.sacbee.com/101/story/1196475.html - broken link)

Why on earth would a black person be offended? Iím sure had they made a sombrero-wearing Mexican fruit picker or toilet cleaner, you would not have been offended.

Californio; Not to be personal or offensive, but why did your mother not complete her high school education while a teen?. I commend her for following thru at her older years. Too many kids today are dropping out of school for stupid reasons and wonder why they cannot get ahead money wise. With no education....no money....no future. Stefhen

As a hispanic woman, i find this post offensive.

"More kids than they can afford and refuse to speak English." I beg your pardon!

I'm college educated, extremely hard working and the main language spoken in my home is English.

Congratulations on your accomplishments. If that comment didn't apply to you why get upset?

I'm sure the OP was referring to the 35 MILLION illegal aliens of hispanic descent who fit the description to a tee.

Thanks.

I frequently post on [domain blocked due to spam].com and you should see the ignorant comments I get from people about hispanics. It's funny to me how rude people can get. Maybe it's because you don't need to be a registered user to post on that board.

oh god, [domain blocked due to spam] invaded this board a while back. you can tell by all the juvenile and hateful speech. and all the polls. its annoying.

anyhow, this does apply to all hispanics. it states this as "hispanic family values". the OP is too lazy to think for themselves and instead posts an article about some illegal immigrant women. instead of keeping the focus on this particular group, it is generalized to the whole hispanic population. thats just moronic.
so the OP has alreaedy shown lack of critical thought. they just see and article that fits their agenda, and propagates this as been true for all hispanics.
and you know what? even if it does not describe me, i would still have a problem with it.
if people go around accusing all black people of being welfare queens and thiefs, should i just sit back and accept this as fact? when people say all muslims are terrorist, should i bo bo along. and say yes, those darn sand naggers! no. generalizations are stupid. unless based on data. and here there is not data on the hispanic population. it is on illegal womens.
you all can be complascent, but when i here stupid generalizations about a whole groups, i will dispute them. i try not to muddy myslef in these hate filled threads. but sometimes it gets too crazy.

hispanics have great family values. and so do immigrant women. they might not have the best contraceptive methods tho...
