you can take that class or an equivalent (arts, golf, etc)

Yes I've had similar experiences with Latinos as well, being in the construction trade for 23 yrs. At first they seem to be always on the defensive, but once you break the ice and open up they are very eager to be friends

This is ridiculous. you have to give gifts to people to get them to accept you because you are different from them?

I've been around Texas a long long time and though I have always loved the southern lifestyle, I cannot stand that sort of attitude of entitlement. San Antonio people didn't used to be that way, whether Hispanic, Asian, Anglo, or whatever.

That's what I don't like about the city. Everything else is fantastic.

I don't see it that way. I see it as I don't want to go over there empty handed and introduce myself without bringing something to welcome them, no matter the race, ethnicity, gender, other characteristics. Somebody needs to break the ice.
I think folks here in S.A. now have more of a guard up than before, been burned badly in the past I suppose.

One of the things I love about the city is the proximity to all the recreational areas. There's something for everyone who likes the outdoors. River and lake swimming, fishing, hunting, camping, etc. And it's close to my fav golf course, the Buckhorn out in Comfort. There are tons of State parks and towns for a one tank (or less) day trip. Pick a direction on the map and go, and you'll find something cool along the way.

I like the history and closeness to recreational areas and the coast (after being in Houston for 3.5 years, I start to appreciate the coast). I also like the friendliness of the people.

DON'T like the negative attitudes. The haters that don't try to fix it, the people that prevent progressive movements (thinking of a MySA article that discussed the failed attempts at controlling sprawl), and a Chinatown sounds like it's completely possible but I'd like to see it expand (I'm thinking Bandera/Evers area could expand).
