Just something, ive noticed, from the experience ive had, Puerto Ricans, arent to fond of us "beans" Ive dealt with a dozen or more,and i know thats not alot, but they told me straight out, that they "straight up didnt like Mexicans" & thats why since then, i dont like when the media, generalizes all "latin" ethnicities and call us "latinos" [cUBANS,dominicans,mexicans,boricuas etc etc.]

Good point Desert Sun....

Also up here in Albuquerque i know alot of the Hispanos do not like the Cubanos that are up here from Cuba.

Guess i'd feel the same if the Russians were flooding our country and speaking Russian and bragging about Russia is better than the USA as that would not go well with me.....

u KNOW, this might be a lil off the subject, but its funny that large herds of mexicans are infiltrating american land, and everybody and their momma, have a problem, with that, but all a cuban native has to do is step foot in miami and "BAM", hes an american, fair? i think not.....but hey thats just my opinion....

Can you elaborate on this? Why is it that some Hispanics in ABQ don't like Cubans? Is it as you hint at because the Cubans talk about how much better Cuba is? Somehow I'd be surprised to hear they do that.

Puerto Ricans do that, always talking about,"mi tierra bonita' etc etc. and one thing that always puzzled me, is..."why do boricuas put their flag on everything they possibly own" i mean, im proud to be mexican american, but i dont have boxers with a big mexican flag on them!

Hmm.....I don't know.......I remember when the Ellian Gonzales situation happened when Bill Clinton sent him back to Cuba and the Hispanos i know up here were like ''Send the SOB back''. I'm the only Anglo where i work so i intermingle with my Hispano co workers daily over these last 9 years over here in SE ABQ and they do not like the Cubanos that are up here....

You can see some of the Cuban National Flags over in Trumbull neighborhood and also at our apartment complex here as we had several Cubanos living here with the Cuban National Flag on their window as i imagine they are proud of the Mother Land.

A lot of Puerto Ricans around Philly supposedly don't like Cubans too much (not that there are many Cubans in this area), in general. Everybody hates everybody; it's what unites us all. We are one big dysfunctional human family.

There are puerto ricans in El Paso? What? Like three of them? Don't fret Levow, PRcans don't like anyone. I just moved back to EP from Florida, I know.
