Slow your roll there buddy. The Hispanics were the agressors in this as well as the most racsit and disrespectfull. Calling a fish a dog doesn't make it so. I live on a nice little island off of the coast of Florida and have to say, I look twice at anyone of hispanic descent I see here. See, we have an incredably low rate of crime here, except during Easter weekend. We then have cops of every description here because the Hispanic gangs from the mainland choose that weekend to all go to the beach. So far there have been several shoot outs, rapes etc, only at that venue, the public beach at the soutern end of the island, and only involving........hispanic gang members. I don't pay the taxes that I do, nor do I live where I live because I want to be around those sort of people. I'm not saying all hispanics are like that, but when you only have contact with the bad ones....it does color your opinion. Now that Arizona has finally doen the right thing alot of apologists are up in arms about it, however, I saw the hispanics in the video saying they were going to kick us out of America, no uproar about that huh? If you break the laws and frankly, act in the manner these idiots did, don't be surprised at the reaction they get. Racism, my friend, happens on every side from every race, and blindly accepting it from one race while demonizing another for the same actions has caused race relations to sink to the levels they are now. You don't have to like what a person says.....but I think the OP made his point quite well, if that makes me a racist in your eyes, so be it.......thanks to political correctness and an excusive look in the name of diversity.....the r word really has no meaning anymore.

No, I am not racist. The two closest friends I have, one of them is a Mexican. He would be pissed about this as well.
I'm not into the Tea Party business. I can quite confidently say however that the members are U.S. Citizens.
I don't hate Mexicans, but I sure as Hell don't like the Mexicans I saw in that video.
Are you more or less telling me that I need to embrace their hate??
Edited to add said friend is of Mexican race, not citizenship. Friend is a U.S. Citizen
