Nothing to do with La Raza. Nothing to do with Latino superiority. There's a similar thread in the general politics forum which I'm sure would be addressed differently by several on this thread simply because it makes (to my recollection) no mention of people of Latino heritage.

Like many workers at the meatpacking plant here, Raul A. Garcia, a Mexican-American, has watched with some discomfort as hundreds of Somali immigrants have moved to town in the past couple of years, many of them to fill jobs once held by Latino workers taken away in immigration raids.
Quote:

The Latino is very humble,” said Mr. Garcia, 73, who has worked at the plant, owned by JBS U.S.A. Inc., since 1994. “But they are arrogant,” he said of the Somali workers. “They act like the United States owes them.”
Again, excuse you? The key to reading is comprehension, please don't pretend to be ignorant that senor Garcia was speaking of illegal aliens. I suggest you refrain from your unnecessary insolence, raced based assumptions and false accusations.

A citizen is a LEGAL American, Illegal Aliens cannot be considered citizens though many supporters of them seem to think that they are.

Speaking of personal attacks...

And one man speaks for ALL Latinos. Always. Mr. Garcia must be incredibly powerful. Garcia said exactly he was speaking for- Latinos. That means legal, illegal, and Latinos born and raised in the US. Do I necessarily agree with his statement? No. Does his statement say anything about illegal immigrants or anything about la Raza? Absolutely not.

Apparently, that person didn't bother to read the article, assumed I was white and merely felt the need to attack me.

I also submit that the bolded section is the core of his discomfort, and a salient factor in the resentment Latinos have towards the “new” immigrants.

Please find where I state the above, when you do, I'll be happy to continue this discussion that is perpetually evolving into your grasping for straws to hurl false accusations at me. Until you find any of what you are accusing me of stating, as far as I am concerned we have nothing to discuss.

Agreed. This entire discussion amounts to an angry poster who is hurling accusations because: (a) he/she never read the article and responded to my post out of blind anger; or (b) has poor comprehension skills. Either way, it appears he/she can't find what they need in order to justify the attack.

Where did I ever insinuate that you were white?

Perhaps in my next life. For now, I am enjoying my role in life as a black woman.
