freetomato: I can't quite wrap my brain around the fact a fabulous mansion can be on a hill overlooking a shantytown.
HotWingAgenda: Bonzo_1116: haven't eaten a taco....of any race or creed.I've never eaten a Jewish taco.
Bonzo_1116: WhippingBoy: fusillade762: Pray 4 Mojo: "Only a 'wetback' can work this hard," and "You got to be Mexican to work like this,"Those are compliments./Calmate Francis.Only an Asian can do math this well.The best lawyers are Jews.The Irish have an amazing tolerance for alcohol.Am I doing it right?No. The Irish are sloppy, belligerent drunks who can't hold their liquor. Get it right, willya?The micks have a lot of heart in a fight, though.
EdNortonsTwin: Hispanic folks make this country a better place. The influx of illegals at the hands of gangs and cartels are the problema.
YouSirAreAMaroon: Salsa music is not Mexican. That is all.
DrFuko: Tank_Fuzzbutt: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.So while we generalizing an entire population on some asshats, lets go ahead and pull out some files on the Bloods, Crips, KKK, Aryan Nation, Heaven's Gate, Asian Boyz, Casa Nostra..... heck, if there is a race attached to it, I am sure to find a gang affiliation to it.
DrFuko: That whole anchor baby thing... How does it work?
Tank_Fuzzbutt: AverageAmericanGuy: . 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.What you were seeing in the Disney parking structure were Mexican drug lords from Mexico on vacation.
AverageAmericanGuy: "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.
