The biggest difference between the two groups is the importance placed on education, IMO. Also, marching in the streets, burning flags, trash talking about the US and saying that the gringo stole your land is not going to win you any points with the citizens of the US. Neither is sneaking in illegally then demanding to be allowed to stay. And the hispanic citizens who defend those illegally here are just as bad.
Asians are even outperforming Anglo-Americans. Good for them.
But your view of Hispanics is very warped.

As long as they beat whitey, it does not really matter who they are, right? And you call other people racist. What a joke.

So you can compare asian and hispanics concerning education, but Mod cut can't compare them with anglo-americans? I don't see anything racial in what he said.

Then why aren't they busy creating jobs in their own countries? If they were of any use in building an economy or creating jobs, Fox and Calderon would actually want to keep some home. They desperately want to be rid of these people which should tell you something. Mexico does not want them back because Mexico knows what they do for an economy.

American citizens own this country. Mexicans own their country -- we sure the hell don't go around claiming that we own the countries of others. And foreigners do not own our country, especially foreigners who didn't even have enough respect for this country to abide by it's laws.

Well they wouldn't be taking jobs from Americans in their own country and maybe it would be a good idea for them to do some revitalizing of their own nation for a change? If they're really so wonderful at creating an economy, then why didn't they do that back home where that could have really benefitted their people, their nation?

So whats the bad part of having a neighborhood in Detroit revitalized?
Would you rather it still be a cesspool than have it fixed up by Latino immigrants, some of which being illegal?
Is it a matter of principle for you?

I believe you are trying to make a racist point that Mexicans improve a city like Detroit that black Americans brought down when the reality is that from 1990 to 2006, whites living in poverty fell from 16.6 million (8.8%) in 1990 to 16 million (8.2%) in 2006.

Black poverty fell from 9.8 million (31.9%) in 1990 to 9 million (24.3) in 2006.

But from 1990 to 2006, the number of poor hispanics increased from 6 million to 9.2 million. (They didn't do much for their own countries either of course)

Racists like you insist that there should be no rules, no regulations, no limitations on "your race". Race is all you have to try to justify unlimited illegal immigration, a total disregard for the laws of this nation.
