How clueless can you get?
Looking for support for his newly found hatred of latinos maybe???? White guilt, to me, is the burden some white people carry for what our forefathers / ancestors did to minorities in this country way before we were born. It's not a negative thing...

Probably not negative or positve. But ask anyone of the minority persuasion- it is a complete waste of time. Guilt is not a positive piece of any puzzle or bigger picture.

To be honest...no one in my family tree was involved in any of that horrible crap! If anything..just the opposite! Yankees!!!

Well nobody really cares because we don't know your ancestors. It sounds like you don't either. The mindset that says some of my best friends are (fill in the blank) is the same one being expressed here. It is very condescending to minority folk. You feeling liberal and guilty does not make you "down" with "them".

Hummm..like "down with them" isn't a racist remark? None of my friends are "fill in the blanks".... can't tell if your defending or agreeing with the OP???

like the rest mentioned it's not hispanics, or any other racial group.. it's just an issue with low end class people who have no courtesy for others.. it happens in all races.. if they were white you'll call them white trash.. i guess since they are hispanics you call them illegal immigrants.. lol.. funny.. but true.. i'm hispanic myself but i detest the ghetto attitude from the people in our society.. this don't mean i'm racist... i cannot say it's all black people.. b/c we have blacks, whites, asians, hispanics, etc.. that act ghetto.. to me it's just ignorance.. and i understand your pain bc i had to deal with them once.. my advice would be call the cops.. and keep on calling them til they move or they stop.. good luck!

^^^ Why should the OP move? Isn't it their right to have peace and quit in a community of their choice?

Wow, I feel bad for you BUT what does being illegal or Mexican have to do with it? You mean to tell me you never encountered rude/inconsiderate people the same race as you or rude/inconsiderate citizens? Just wow. I went to a diverse college, law school and now work in NY. I can tell you rude/inconsiderate comes in all races and you encounter it often with legals.

jstar41 - I just think that the OP would have been much happier with Beaver Cleaver's grandma living over him!
