Vectron: Was this in there too? "Not all Mexicans take a shiat in a flower pot at the mall with people walking by". NSFW


I heard of something like that happening in Saginaw, MI at a retail store getting a remodel.  Someone did that to a new toilet waiting to be installed while it sat on the sales floor, of a grocery store.

What you were seeing in the Disney parking structure were Mexicans from Mexico on vacation. They are regular working class citizens of Mexico here to enjoy themselves. These are not the illegal aliens that have invaded this country and are sponging off our society, dropping anchor babies and bringing crime and taking blue collar jobs away from the rightful citizens who deserve those jobs.

Don't confuse the two.

That whole anchor baby thing... How does it work?  Legally, it doesn't help jack crackers, seeing that ICE is willing to deport you and leave the children in a foster home.

And how bout that whole higher crime thing?  how does that work as well?  Mexicans leave their families behind and risk their lives to cross a desert just so they can cause a beer-induced ruckus and raping in a white bred neighborhood?

Seriously, if I didnt know any better, I'd swear you are just a racist person.


Not a racist or a xenophobe. I just happen to live in the middle of what's happening. Pull your head out and look around before it's too late. Educate yourself on MEChA, La Raza and Aztlan before you fall into the belief of these poor people are just looking for work.

My dad was half Mexican. I have many dozens of cousins in Colorado who speak fluent Spanish and some among them are amazing cooks of the best authentic food. I grew up in CA, and the only Spanish I speak is a few cuss words and how to order a beer. That being said, I've been to Mexico five times, once in business where I worked closely with educated, white collar Mexicans.  The other times as a tourist who was horrified to see babies in rags begging. I can't quite wrap my brain around the fact a fabulous mansion can be on a hill overlooking a shantytown.  I learned from one of the white collar girls I worked with that unless your family can pay for it, you are not educated beyond the 8th grade there.

You would be fishing my illegal ass out of the Rio Grande too.

Imagine the gut-wrenching feeling of those of us living here, every day. Worse yet, those of us that have taken to the streets to protest against the government.

I have considered to move out of the country, because quite honestly, there's less work. I'm already planning to move to Mexico City at year's end, and working there is considerably different from working here. I'm a little worried I might not work well, but it's a thing that I have to do.

There are a handful of families in Mexico that control nearly all of the money there. Every 5-15 years, a pretty serious revolution starts brewing... and it just never materializes. Not sure why.

Not every Mexican wears a sombrero and eats tacos, but everyone you see wearing a sombrero while eating a taco will be Mexican...or over privileged kids at a sorority party.

Well, the things in the flyer are true from what I gather.

Tacos are pretty awesome, though. That can't be stressed enough. It's almost worth 11 million illegal immigrants.

Mexico City was actually the scene of one of the more heartbreaking encounters I had with the locals.  I was there with the International Olympic Boxing Federation,  guests of the Mexican Olympic Committee.  My co-worker and I worked a 16 hour day then were offered to go out for a much-needed drink, accompanied by four old guys, Committee members,  who'd been boxers in their prime (good bodyguards in a city that can be dangerous to tourists). They took us to a strip bar. *Sigh* okay I'm a big girl I can deal with that.  Just give me a cold one.  The strippers, God love them, were probably all of 15 years old, covered in tons of makeup hiding their natural beauty, and were terrified of us as we were the only women there not on the payroll (there was actually an old bag in the ladies room - their dressing room - that was probably their "keeper" and scowled at me when I smiled and tried to make small talk with one of the girls when I was in there). They avoided our table.  I sought one of them out, bought her a Coke and offered her a cigarette.  Three of those young girls ended up sitting with us.  I could see the desperate young girls they were and it broke my heart that they were doing that for God knows what kind of compensation instead of being carefree teenaged girls.

I took pictures of the group that night, and found out later that if I was the blackmailing sort, I could have done so, as the Muslim African country one of my companions was from frowns on Parliament members consorting with underage strippers.

2013-07-09 09:18:17 PM "Working like a Mexican" is a huge testament to the work ethic of Mexicans. Getting past the stereotypes is a huge step, which Target seems to be doing a piss poor job at.


I spent a day at Disneyland's new California Adventure and was surprised at how many cars with Mexican plates were in the parking garage. These weren't the beater Toyota Hiluxes I was used to. I'm talking just normal cars from Corollas through Lexuses. Just a normal variation of cars, but having Mexican plates.

Then heading into the park I heard Mexican spoke all around me. I'm so used to the stereotype of the "Mexican dishwasher" and "Mexican landscaper" that I was truly taken aback when I saw normal families walking along dressed like any other park attendee.

It was so far from what I had predisposed myself to thinking. These people were just like us! After years of living in the U.S., I never would have thought that a visit to Disneyland would change everything I knew about Mexicans. These were families with kids, just like mine, who traveled across the border, like I did, to enjoy the sites and culture of the country across the way.

I sat down and wept into my hands. The experience was overwhelming. Who was I to judge these people? Are they not my guests in this country? They come not to take my job or to siphon money back to their families, but to just spend a day here and enjoy what we had to offer in the very same way that I've spent a day in Canada enjoying their country.

It gave me a new respect for these people. I vowed on that day that I would never look at a Mexican as a usurper of American jobs and services but as a fellow human being who in different circumstances could have been my neighbor. Indeed, in a deep and profound way he is my neighbor



I heard Mexican spoke all around me
