True all too often, sad to say.

Note that having a Spanish name does not a Hispanic make in all fairness. MY birth surname is Hispanic 7% of the time-----------never mind there are only about 100 of us with that name here in the USA.

Hispanic is a culture really but certain surnames denote ancestry from Spain but that doesn't necesarily make them Hispanic culturally themselves. It is whatever culture a person is raised in that determines that.

Improved my ass, they have nearly rot gutted this country with their unlawfulness, diseases and criminal actions.

Send him and them home where they belong.

He is a total nutcase who about caused the lives of our brave soldiers for being so stupid and wanting to get a story out.

He loves illegals from Mexico and Cuba and that makes him a total idiot and a traitor.

Geraldo has done a great job bringing truth about spanish culture to the american mainstream, which is not intended for the radicals who have naive pre-conceived ideas....

Spanish culture, eh?

Somehow I doubt that Mestizo Hispanics in particular wish to be associated with true Castillian Spanish culture due in large part to its White supremacy.

Well the reason many pro-illegals feel that anti-illegals are also anti-hispanic is that we call out the fact that the vast majority of illegals are in fact hispanic.
Sort of like saying anyone who calls out that the majority of convicted felons are in fact black must also be a racist.
Its no coincidence that the majority of those demanding amnesty for illegals are also hispanic, and that they claim that anyone anti-amnesty is anti-hispanic.
How about those of us that are anti-illegal are anti-illegal whatever race or country of origin?
As for Geraldo. Does he even have any credibility? I would think that he lost any credibility after his Al Capone vault fiasco.

I no longer label them as pro-illegal. They are anti-American.

Lets set the record straight, without being PC. Call it what it is.

Geraldo is salivating over the diminshment of anglos in this country. Note his remark about the increased browning of America. It is an outright racist statement! It would be no different if an anglo would brag about illegally invading a predominantly Hispanic or Asian country and diluting their majority racial, cultural and ethnic makeup and breeding them out of existance. He is despicable!
You would think that Geraldo Rivera would hate the Spaniards alot more than the Anglos, since it was not the Anglos who raped and enslaved the Taino and African population of his native Puerto Rico.

Really makes you proud huh???Maybe you should go back a little bit and research.Geraldo as a younger man was ashamed of being Hispanic and has stated in many interviews that he corrupted his last name and tried to pass himself off as an Italian when he was younger,maybe he's trying to redeem himself.
