Just very suprising to read information like this in a mainstream paper. I'm not sure what to make of it, but I'll continue researching into the
Nah.. not really..
Immigrants in America for as long as we have existed where dirt poor and filled the lowest jobs possible..
When the Italians, the Irish, the Germans all came over it was the same case, they founded their own cities, their own cultures in little pockets, and
essentially lived the same life as back home in their poor homelands.
It was for their children
that they came here and they went through American Schools, identified themselves as Americans first, Italian,
German, Chinese, Irish, English, Indian, Persian second.. it has ALWAYS been this way.
The Mexicans, it is concerning.. the Mexicans I used to work with live here in America, have their kids in Mexico half the time, refuse to let their
children learn English, hate blacks and don't trust whites and praise the Mexican government over the American government..
They had no ambition what so ever to assimilate, or let their kids assimilate..
They honest to God believe America is THEIR country, they they have a right to be here, and hate the "pigs" for "illegally" deporting them..
so those in LA, don't want to be American, the majority over identify with Mexico .. and few countries in the world can identify with our problem..
in fact, the ONLY country I can think of is Russia, who 2 weeks ago came to the conclusion that "Siberia and Eastern Russia is being conquered by
China by default"
What does that mean?
It means Chinese culture, Chinese immigrants, illegal and legal are out growing the "native" and Russian populations enough that within a few
decades China will be the vast majority, and that a severe risk of revolt to join China could occur.
Same thing for America mate..
Not all Mexicans are like this, I have met plenty that came here for a better life, truly moved here, despise Mexico but recognize it has Home like
all us Americans even generations later identify with home.. but they learned English, even though illegally here, they went to College.. I respect
those people, and I welcome them to our country.
They can wave their Mexican flag all they want imo, because I know that THEY are Americans first, Mexicans second. I know plenty of Americans who fly
English and German flags with their American flag, I fly an Irish republic flag, and its no different for a Mexican immigrant to fly his flag..
As long as he recognizes America as his true home..
LA has such a massive population of Mexicans, that essentially Mexico took it over.. there is NO need to assimilate because the culture is Mexican.
In that, lies the problem..
And it will grow..
I can only hope their children adopt America over Mexico ..
And I really, really wish America would spend billions upon billions building Mexico, establishing a new government and everything instead of wasting
it on Arabs half a world away who don't like us anyways..
But it is what it is.
By the way, many, many big cities in America resemble the third world .. I could take pictures of my own city. Its a #hole as poverty takes over.
