a handful of pictures says nothing about the event or the protest they pretain to. While colorful and attention getting they serve no real purpose of clarification other than a visual to something you have yet to inteligently explain. Are they even from the same event? or did you just find the most retareded pics you could so as to paint the hispanic community as vile hippie protesters.





Those pics came from multiple events, however I can post pics from a single event showing nothing but a sea of mexican flags if you wish.


Ignoring the fact that a active and reactionist population is probably the best defence against government abuses


Really? Then why is their native mexico still as corrupt as can possibly be? Exactly what have they done to unfark that problem?

I never said they did, you implied they are all drop outs...a mute point since we are not debating that. You argue then that the current state of global economics is wrong and we need to resort to an isolationst policy, I wonder how long our Big coorperations would stay here in a country unsupportive of international trade and exchange of ideas, persons, and industries......BACKWARDS thinking..


Could you point out to where I said they are all drop outs?

I never said anything about an isolationist economic policy, nor is that the topic here.

We already have a visa program for corporations to hire who they need, perhaps if the illegal immigration problem wasn't so bad, more visas would open up. Instead, we are being flooded with uneducated, unskilled workers who will drain more and more of our social service resources.

Is the fact that you think they are unsupportive of education an oppinion or what because the growing number of latino bussiness men and profesionals in allmost every gambit of our society IS indicitive of their ability to learn and grow.....but again what does that have to do with this....just wanted to rag on us......


Look at drop out rates if you want to see how much they value education.

drop out rates for which state , the whole country, what is your source.,


Read back, I argued that our foriegn policy has a destablizing effect on third world nations through the CIA and other foreign influence agents,starting civil wars, support of co-detats of leaders not on our agenda, and over all policy of destablization of rising economies, we have effectively ensured that a total dependance on non third world countries will be perpetual.


If we really wanted them on their side we wouldnt undermine their infostructure through creating civil unrest so as to stabilize their home countries and raise the employment rates there, some thing we dont want to see happen because 1 we like having cheap labor, 2 we like distracting the american populace with non issues that in reality take away from our global presence of agression and police actions against soverign nations. 3 we need the third world to stay the third world since a vast majority of our wealth directly comes from these underrepresented , disenfranchised, people on the world scene,

I recall one day a few months ago where some Mexicans lowered the US Flag at a Southern Cali post office and replaced it with the Mexican Flag.
Its pretty well known that certain mexican orginizations believe that California should still be part of Mexico and they vow that some day it will.
Most of the mexicans that immigrate here have no intentions of "blending in" they want all that America has to offer but they wont give up being a mexican.
Its funny how America is supposed to bend to other races will when they come here but when we go to other country's, we are still the ones that do the bending.

Would you prefer that they protested outside a liquor store? Would that satisfy your,.... what I am perceiving as bigotry?

Pew Hispanic Center


Foreign-born youths are significant contributors to the nation's teen school dropout population. Only 8 percent of the nation's teens are foreign born, but nearly 25 percent of teen school dropouts were born outside the United States, according to a Pew Hispanic Center analysis of data from the 2000 U.S. Census


National Center for Educational Statistics


While Hispanics represented the same proportion of the young adult population as did blacks (14.8 and 14.5 percent, respectively), Hispanics were disproportionally represented among status dropouts in 1999 (37.7 percent of all dropouts). A total of 1.4 million Hispanics were dropouts in 1999, representing 28.6 percent of all Hispanic young adults in this age group. In comparison, about 600,000 black young adults

because we have an active policy of destablizing nations not under our direct sphere of influence, for example why the cia backed out right criminals like noreaga and then made him to be a devil(which he was) as soon as he started redistribiting wealth in terms of increased social spending. Every third world nation has a similar story, even Iraq. Sadam....CIA backed to get into power.
have you been under a rock , or do you really beleive the world sucks that much.

I would prefer they assimilated into American culture and stopped pretending they have any rightful claim to this land.

Feel free to post proof of any bigotry I have shown, I will simply refute it with a picture of my wife.

I believe we do whatever is in our best interests in order to remain a super power. Holding down other nations is just another examlpe of that.

so what.....what is your point we are dumb???? what?we dont value an education.....you know why most people drop out.. because they have real life problems and need to work to solve them.....doesnt meen they dont value education. what is the rate of college graduates that dont drop out of HS. in the hispanic community, that would be more indicitive of their interest in education, not those that cant go to school. again....just wanted to rag on us what does that have to do with anything?

so you support the problem causing them to have to come here while at the same time saying the shouldnt. TELL YOUR GOVERNMENT TO LET THEM GROW THEN. That might increase their employment rates in their countries.

You're not really good at debating are you? Did I say you were posting bigotry? No, I said I was perceiving it as such.

BTW, that's the beauty of the internet, it's anonymous. Here's a picture of my wife.

Drop out rates of college are more indicative? How so? People don't have the money to go all the way through college. There is no excuse to drop out of an unconstitutionally taxpayer funded public school.

Real life problems? Well, crap, everyone has problems, yet the majority of people manage to graduate high school. Do hispanics have more problems than other races that I am unaware of?

Do you have to sweep out the cobwebs out of that thing before you go to town on it?


I have no bigotry whatsoever towards anyone of any race. I have problems with immigrants (both legal and illegal) of all races who do not make out country a better place.
