That is what many of you do not understand. " If they came here legally, it would be totally fine with me."

Go and check our immigration laws. 95% of the illegals would not even qualify for a green card. They would not have any other way to oume here.
Yes, I am totally against illegal immigration. But you can't just say " if they had done it the right way". They simply would not qualify ( College degree etc.).

Then they shouldn't come. Work to change the law, don't choose what laws you will follow. I know if I wanted to move to another country and would never qualify to be a citizen, I wouldn't tell that country "Too bad, I'm coming anyway", and then demand rights when I got there. Even if immigration law is reformed, some will not make the list, and those who don't make the list will NOT have the right to come anyway. But we will still have people advocating that it's "not fair" that these people can't come here.

No your off topic.

We are discussing why Juan, Pablo and Julio from Mexico, are pissed off, calling me a racist, because I called them all dumb stupid Mexicans.

This is MY country. I never said it wasn't yours, although you sure don't seem to respect it much.

i have lived it. i have seen the ugly face of prejudice and hatred. that is undeniable. a mixed black and white president dont change much because honestly there are many people who still dont see us all as "americans" .
I have also seen the same, TOWARDS ME, by your beloved illegals, and also by racist minority citizens. Works both ways. Only difference is, I'm smart enough to know it's the exception, not the rule.

we may disagree but dont accuse me of stuff like that. it weakens your poor lil argument.

seriousy... dismissed.
And who the hell are you to "dismiss" me or anyone else? Do you feel powerful behind your little keyboard? Get picked on by your "bad neighbors" growing up, creating your inferiority complex? I'll post whatever the hell I want, until you become a moderator, you'll dismiss no one.

Look at this pic of Mexican school children for example. I see ZERO racial diversity in this pic because all of the kids in it look like they belong to the same race.




I would not confuse a single Mexican in that pic for being White, Korean, or Chinese for example.
So you can tell the difference between Mexicans, El Salvadoreans, Peruvians, etc.? Are Chilean and Brazilian also races genuis?

Discussing the issues is fine, dealing with immature and condesceding jabs at posters who don't agree with you is irritating, but I wouldn't expect anything less from you.

By the way, I'm still here tough guy. Dismiss yourself.
