Yes; I am extremely prejudiced against illegal aliens---------irrespective of their race/ethnicity.
Don't you get tired of posting the same things over and over again?

My rebuttal was directed towards that poster who tried to invoke the race card.

So I have posted essentially the same comment a few times; think about it, I can safely say that neither Alexus nor anybody else will wade through pages of older posts to catch my stated opinion.

At Harvard, Bravo faced misconceptions and a feeling of isolation she had never known. She decided that she did not want other Latino students to confront such campus culture shock alone.

<snip>

The guide, created by Latino students, provides insight into their experiences on the predominantly white Ivy League campus. Latino enrollment at Harvard averaged less than six in the mid-1970s, the guide says. Today, about 8 percent of the roughly 6,700 undergraduate population is Latino.

my nephew is having the time of his life, he is involved in several extra-curricular activities, also he is at the top academically, there are peolple from all ethnic backgrounds that feel isolated, and it has to do with social skills more than anything else.
My nephew is engaged to a beautiful girl of english descent, also a harvard student, he is a very handsome caucasian kid of hispanic descent.

Wrong. If he has no legal right to be here (which he does not, as he is illegal) then this is not his home. He is a squatter.

i don't have a problem with immigrants retaining their ancestoral language but there is a time a place for everything. Ancestoral languages are best spoken in the home. Out in mainstream America speak the language of this country which is English. it is just plain rude and disrespectful not to do so. Spanish speakers are the worst offenders.

So anyone who is conservative is a racist? Better to support criminals than legal citizens?
Sure makes perfect sense.
