Well for low paying jobs they really hire anybody that applies there, unless it's in the middle of a low income hispanic neighborhood, but only hispanics live there, so I don't think a nonhispanic would apply there in the first place.

However I have seen changes in some large companies where more non Spanish speakers are being hired. So maybe some employers were afraid of lawsuits. I think it's only fair to have both because the people that get affected the most are African Americans and haitians.

"Many people are upset by this terminology and find it offensive, while others find it just plain incorrect. Here's a look at what the word "Anglo" really means and why some people dislike its common use."

I'm glad CD is bringing people together and ironing out the rough spots.
Well I usually use white nonhispanic but I wish I could use something shorter but I heard complaints about Caucasian too. I'm not gonna use white only, sorry, not happening. I already heard enough of those white hispanics in the Miami forum.

"They come back with more expectations than they left with. They want better public services – roads, schools, sewer systems – and, more important, jobs. Some complain about the lack of drinking water. Their children often speak only English or broken Spanish"

Keep me posted....

(If Mexico DOES decide to fence out those arriving from the north, will those who sneak across anyway be referred to as 'secos'? Or would that term be considered inappropriate?)

Wow, complaints in the Miami forum AND HERE. Sorry about that. It's starting to look like we Americans can't escape this mess no matter what.

Seco? Are you sure you do not mean the second time crossing the border----------back home?
