One thing to note is that the OP NEVER seems comes back to the threads he starts. This makes me think he MIGHT be trying to stir up controversy as opposed to making any serious inquiry.

In my mind, his original post revealed a very narrow, nativist outlook with his very negative comments regarding illegal aliens and Stockton.

I thought all the subsequent posts in this thread (by many LA forum regulars) were all pretty thoughtful and above the board (even if I disgreed with a few here and there).
The Stockton response or comments I would certainly agree with you, but other than that, I just found him obsessed, which is a way would sound racist but some of his comments I got a different overall view. I think of racist as almost a hatred toward someone or something.

I didn't notice we never comes back. It sounds more to me like he could be labeled a TROLL rather than racist, but either way, I understand what you are saying. Some TROLLs do wander back from time to time, not often. The best thing we can all do with posters like this is to ignore them, too bad it is easier said than done, right?

Really, not racist? Even if he is a troll.

I had NOT seen that quote. What a wonderful gift to humanity...he's a racist and has trouble with the English language. My how those two things seem to come as a package. LOL!!

I think Hispanics are mainly found on the eastern side of the city but the do not have any major influence to the culture of this society, At LosAngeles web design
where i work we mostly deal with Africa Americans and Latinos and they do not follow any traits of Hispanic influence though they are the main residents. I believe with the current rate, the rise of Latinos and African American they shall be outnumbered in a near future.

come on, let's not make too much out of someone not being able to spell. I have hit on this before, I happen to be dyslectic, but it has nothing to do with my views on life..

E. Los Angeles / L A County is a diverse city. I am American/Mexican and barely speak spanish. English first. Most illegals are from all over, El Salvadore, Mexico, Panama, I always ask from what country he or she is from. Most I've met are very nice, problem is just too many in my neighborhood.
