With all respect,
There is a huge difference in between your attitude and mine, I am not coming here to tell people to stop to post or speak openly their own opinions,
you instead have done so, just because you didn't like that somebody else refer to this subject, with a radically different point of view than
yours, since you feel to be the interpreter of the mind of the Hispanic community or something similar.
The thread was opened to offer a space of discussion about an anthropological issue of cultural identification that is not of my invention, it has
been already detected by serious analysts, including sociologists and educators, and I have given some references on that aspect.
You feel that for your supposedly origin you have enough authority to determine what is to be an ethical behavior being Hispanic, and you insist that
the community you claim to belong to is not monolithic. It comes to my attention that, in a clear contradiction with respect to such ideas, you also
feel to have the authority to say who represents a genuine Latin way of thinking and who does not!
Let me explain you here my point: There exist is a dramatic inequality in between the situation of certain sectors of the Hispanic community and
others, it is not the same to try to migrate to this country legally being a Cuban or a Portorican, who have a tremendous advantage with privileges
that no other groups have, than to be Mexican who has all the migration laws against, for the simple reason that the current migratory system grants
visas based on the discriminatory mechanism of quotas.
It is hypocritical and even perverse to accuse the members of a nationality to violate systematically the migration laws when those regulations are
Not working in a fair and uniform way with all nationalities, but created as a kind of powerful ethnic filtering. So if those regulations were not
created under the principle of Justice, that in a Democracy must be blind to judge all people equally, they lack of the necessary moral aspect to be
applied under the rule of Law.
Citizens of the USA does not even require visa to be admitted in Mexican Territory, there is more than a million of Americans living in that country,
but here there are politicians that believe that they can arrange not only a discriminatory migration system but also the construction of a wall to
prevent the entering of Mexicans to this country.
Now, I have lived in Latin American countries under democracy and I never have seen a attempt of censorship like the one you have tried to carried out
here, so I am sincerely wondering where really are you coming from with such intolerant attitudes?
For what I read you also claim in a visibly manipulative way of debating that who ever does not share your opinions, even if that person is
pointing to a real issue of harassment of a community, trying to stop it, is a racist.
I only can assume that to support such a claim you must feel that you are the voice of a race, isn't it?
If you would really know what are you talking about possibly you be aware that Latin or Hispanic people does not represent a race, they represent a
really complex diversity of ethnic groups that share a cultural background or identity.
I am not sure if you are able to see that your position is extremely arrogant? but I also realize that your interest is not in discuss politics from
an ethical perspective, it seems to me that is primarily to see it through the lens of a kind of strategy or tactic approach.
I base my opinion on the fact that you have an impressive record of threads opened to discuss almost exclusively weaponry. This leads me to think
that your motivation is focused on winning conflicts of some kind, sorry but here we are interested in other aspects of reality, in particular to be
able to see the anthropological or ethical aspects of Politics.
Excuse me, but that is an important misunderstanding from your side, this is not a forum of military strategy to overcome rivals, it is one for
discussing what must be above Politics, ideals or principles that must prevail over partisan motivations, in that sense every body is welcome to drop
their opinions to enrich the analysis of the topic, and Nobody has moral authority what so ever to silence people.
