Starting a topic, asking why it 'seems' so many people from a Mexico desent with the last name "Rodriguez". Makes me racist???? Yes I thank God Im not one!! Smith, might be from Mexico, too. Not making any jokes... Asked a question............. If anyone is Racist you are!!

John, for whatever it's worth, asking that question doesn't make you racist...but it is kind of a silly question. If you're religious, you know we're all God's children. If you're a scientist, you must know that the Out of Africa theory also makes us all related.
Oh, and yes, I AM against all forms of illegal immigration.

My DNA (both sides) traces from Africa as well 60K years ago----------along with every other human being tested thus far.

BTW, before you go crazy, I am of Mexican descent.
How ironic, Spanish is European. hahaha

(btw.. spaniards hate mexicans as do Puerto Ricans... call them a Mexican and see what happens LOL)
Spanish is European.

racist?
no, just very uneducated.
not very knowledgeable.
trully reactionary.

and i would add unawre of the multitude of US citizens (non mexican or descended of mexicans) who are choosing to relocate to mexico, and not at summertime resort areas. lots are moving to quaint little towns.

i guess its not that much of a dump to them.

I thank god that I was not born in Mexico. Its a dump. Its corrupt. Why would anyone wish to be from mexico?
Racist? I think not. Angry about how Mexican citizens abuse our border absolutely. Angry about how many Mexican americans support and facilitate said illegals? Justifiably so.

Well then what can I say?
Uneducated? Got me.
Not very knowledgeable? Got me but I will bet I have been to more countries than you have. Right around 21 if memory serves I will list them if you desire with dates.
No what in my post warrented such a reply?
Reactionary? You assume a lot.
Those who wish to go to Mexico are free to go. I myself have seen a little of what Mexico offers and prefer alternative digs.
For me Thailand is Paradise waiting for my retirement. Humble people good food reasonable cost of living.
And I would add that Multitudes of Americans are moving to Thailand. No just what does that prove? Nothing. It just proves that some people want to go there.

then you would agree that generalizing about a country, and proclaiming it a dump is pretty silly.
thats what would prompt a repsonse like that. silly unfounded generalizations.

you can have a preference for a vacation home with out deriding another country like mexico. i dont have to say, i love costa rica, but mexico is a dump. its a reaction to lash out at a county and call it a dump just because you think mexican citizens are abusing the US. your anger or dislike comes from the fact that you are mad about what SOME mexicans do. but does it warrant calling a country a dump. not one bit. call it an accessory. or enabler. but a dump. as a country? no. just like thailand.

thats pretty simple to understand.

but there are just too many generalizations in the immigration forum. especially about mexicans and latinos.

that will usually elicit a response from me. idiotic posts that generalize.

as for what countries i have been to or not, dont worry about it. this aint a peesing match. i aint tryin to out-travel you. thats not what its about. thats funny tho, thanks for the laughs.

Mexico is a nation of problems no arguing that point. If it wern't they wouldn't be sneaking across the border by the millions to escape it.
Okay so the term dump may have been a bit strong. After all one mans dump is anothers haven.
Mexico reminds me of the filipines. Beautiful in places and oh so dangerous in many others. Like the PI Mexico has its safe areas for foreigners. Like the PI Mexico is also louded with corruption.
Thailand to has issues but is more than balanced in other ways.
Its not about hispanics or mexicans in general for me. Its about the level of corruption. Its about the Gov of Mexico's absolute disregard for its people and what impact that disregard has upon us. That is what angers me against Mexico.
As for the pessing match. That was due to the idea that somehow I was less than knowledgable about different cultures or countries. I don't claim to be an expert. I leave that to the college eggheads whose sole experience in life is a text book. They seem to be experts on everything. But thats another topic.
Peace no war needed.
