Sam Houston and Crockett are wondering what the point was right about now.


No they aren't plenty of Mexicans (texicans) fought side by side w their counterparts like Houston.... Hell Juan Seguin was one of Houstons closest friends and trusted generals

Is history really not taught anymore?


I wasnt saying they didnt want any Mexicans in, I meant that they fought behind a wall to stop the bad guys(spanish essentially BTW) get in and take Texas.

PS, not having grown up in Texas, they don't teach Texas history in every state, I learned it when I lived there in my adult life.


Ahh makes sense. I guess I took for granted that it wasn't taught everywhere, just because the nature of how Texas came to be.....

But that makes sense I suppose

I was just in Albuquerque last week and stopped at walmart.
There was a security guard at the door.
A cop outside.
The makeup department looked like a cage.
And there was not a single self checkout line.

Bye bye texas

New Mexico is coming


Meanwhile, in a walmart in the civilized portion of New Mexico, in a community that is >60% Hispanic-descended, there are no visible security guards at the door, no cops outside, no cage in makeup and two sets of self checkout lines. More than half the people that work there are of Hispanic descent and at any given time more than half of the customers in the store are of Hispanic descent.

To assume the described situation at an Albuquerque location is due to Hispanic people being present is a particularly low quality thought process.

Its offensive when you refuse to join the culture you are living with...

Here in Germany if I don't try to speak German most Germans (that don't know me well) will refuse to admit they know English.

They expect me to rightfully make that adjustment while living in their country, so why is it considered Offensive that any American wants English as the official language?

I was told I am racist for wanting English as the official language in the states, but it was not racist for Hispanics to try and make Spanish the official language of Florida.

But hey go ahead and tilt at an imaginary windmill..





And what are you going to do about all the folks showing their German/Dutch/Irish/Swedish/Norwegian/Finnish/Polish/Italian/etc pride with those flag decals on their cars? Slash their tires and call them unAmerican? I see a TON of German, Dutch and Polish flag decals on cars here in MI, I don't think they care what you think about it.


Where in the EFF did I say anything about attacking them or damaging their property.. project much???




I'm significantly less butthurt over this than you appear to be.


Considering that entirely made up in your own head paragraph of your's that I quoted I would say you are supremely butt hurt over what I said.. The cuban exiles were used as an example so maybe you should go back and work on your reading comprehension.

Since I directly answered a question on the first page of the thread!

It's wrong if you keep your kids so isolated they cannot operate in the larger culture.

It's one thing if they maintain some of that at home, but it's another if they refuse to allow any of the larger culture to be adopted. Then they are effectively colonizing from within.

Most first generation immigrants won't ever learn more than they have to, but the children can and should learn to integrate fully so they can keep both toes in, one on each side. They can't do that if they aren't allowed to by family stricture.

Expound, if you can. I grew up in Florida, where supposedly the Cubans and others don't "mix in", but I'd never seen any real tangible examples of them not doing that.


I don't know about Cubans, but I've seen it in Hispanics up where I'm at.

Guess which culture doesn't come out to Independence Day celebrations? You even see Muslims out there, but almost no Hispanics.

I dated a Cuban girl for a while, the first time I went to her parents home was the first time I saw racism. Mom and Dad were pissed she was dating a white kid. They refused to speak to me and talked more than a bit of trash about me, and her family and their friends eventually destroyed the relationship.

What they didn't know was while I could not speak Spanish well my understanding of it was quite good, and they were far from flattering in what they were saying.


I guess you lived in the liberal utopia corner of Florida because in the late 80s Tampa area it was very clearly divided between Cuban exiles and the rest of the Hispanics. The Cubans were racist... the Mexicans, the Puerto Ricans were awesome folks to hang out with drink with or date. Every family from the later two groups worked hard to assimilate into America, they wanted their kids to be fluent in English and be American first, Then be proud of your heritage.

LMAO, that's your baseline? Not enough of them party it up on the 4th? So what? I don't bother with 4th of July celebrations, either. A lot of Americans of all colors & creeds don't, who cares? I don't watch the Macy's Thanksgiving parade either, is that unAmerican, too? XD

Not many assimilate well where I'm at either, the vast majority live 15 deep in a rented house and head south for the winter to live like Kings.

So? That's par for the course anywhere, I'd expect to be snubbed speaking English in a foreign country, too. It doesn't mean much beyond just being the area's lingua franca expectation, though, communication is easier with one. It doesn't, however, mean one must abandon their mother tongues entirely just to appease, especially the older one gets. Languages are not easy to learn and retain as we age, I've lost all fluency in Portuguese, Russian and Maltese myself.

Nah man. You acted like it's some great offense to have heritage pride. So what are you going to do about it, since it bothers you that much?

My reading comprehension is fine. You're a bit touchy about the subject is all. Otherwise known as "butthurt".

Oh who the hell cares, that's just stock racism, not anti-integration. Black communities, Asian communities, Hispanic communities, White communities ALL have elements that pull this crap. Hell, here in MI there's even an old phrase still kicking around -- "If you ain't Dutch, you ain't much." And some of these people are real serious about their kids only marrying Dutch descendants.

Late 80's through the mid 2014, everywhere from Tampa to Port Charlotte. The most fractured and least welcoming area I ever lived in was Sarasota. And it wasn't the Hispanics doing it, it was the wealthy whites snubbing everyone else.

Random side thought..

I was dating a Puerto Rican girl and she invited me home for dinner so of course I said sure. (she was the eldest, but the middle daughter liked me also)

So I walk in the door and get greeted by this big Hispanic lady who immediately hugged me and asked if I liked Fried chicken. I nodded and said yes mam, she immediately corrected me saying I am not a mam, that's my mother.

So we sit down for dinner and as she is serving food she looks at me with a grin and asks are you a leg or breast man, it took me a few moments to answer.. .and I said Leg please. She gave a big ole laugh and said ok that's why you're dating my eldest.

I turned beat red, and was pretty quiet for the rest of dinner, afterwards she game me a big hug and kiss saying I like you, just gotta fatten you up and you will be all right. (I was 6'2" and 139 lbs)

even after we broke up I kept in touch with the family, broke my heart when the mom passed away.

The only stat yanks should be concerned with is when stupid outnumbers sane - all the skin skin colours have stupid and sane - its in the ratios that count. The gene-wars theory of K-selection versus r-selection best explains the overarching human instinct - skin colour, religion, politics all come a distant 2nd.

Does anybody know how much of the current "white" population of Texas was actually originally "Hispanic" back hundreds of years ago and slowly got Anglified? Did it happen much or are pretty much all Texan whites from the outside?

Hispanics will overtake non-Hispanic whites to become the largest population group within five years, according to new data from the U.S. Census Bureau. Texas added 234,000 Hispanic residents in 2017, more than any other state in the country, to take the Hispanic population total to 11.2 million.

Those numbers represented a flattening out of recent increases, however, leading experts to push back their estimate for when Hispanic will become the largest group in the Lone Star State.

“We had projected that the Latino population would exceed the white population by 2020 and that’s probably not going to happen,” demographer Lloyd Potter told the Dallas Morning News, adding that the shift was now expected to happen in 2022.

The overall shift is as a result of migration as well as a generally higher fertility rates.

I jest of course.... The majority of hispanics speak English first and foremost and it's spoken fluently. Not to mention, the term 'hispanic' is used fairly loosely these days where even the Census Bureau can't seem to properly define who would be included in this group. The term Hispanic is more a cultural or ancestral identification.... you can be fairly pale and white and still identify as hispanic. With that said, this is a strong indication that there are major demographic shifts happening in red states and these shifts are happening fast. Interesting times.



What exactly is a non Hispanic white?

It doesn't happen like it used to unless you get out on the ranches....but i've seen immigrant kids kept isolated from normal american culture. For several generations.

A great example of this is the Mennonites, who typically speak German unless business requires English or Spanish. They move amongst us as oddities, and do not interact at all without necessity.
