Only when you use descriptive adjectives as slurs to denote a particular ethnic group. Defying logic and reason.

When you start talking without emotions and adjectives when you discuss illegals. It will be possible to have an adult discussion with you on the subject.

Instead you identify particular cultural groups that in no way are un-American and use stereotypes rather than argue actual points on illegals.

EDIT: Have you not read over and over Antonia point out these kids WERE BORN IN AMERICA. (Is this right? I'm too lazy to fact-check myself, hey atleast I'm honest)

Sure ill stand with any Legal citizen who has the best interest of this country reguardless of their race. But some are more concerned with showing their pride for mexico.


What is wrong with being proud of your homeland? I am proud of my Irish heritage and anyone should be proud of there heritage as well no matter what it is, did you ever think that the government run media is telling you the story they want you to hear?

Nothing if you also show pride for the country you moved too.

AKA if you wave both the mexican flag and american flag.

Not wave the mexican and piss on the american

Listen to them speak. It's unaccented. Those kids are speaking fluent, unaccented English. They were most likely born here and raised here. Probably just some high school age kids with too much time on their hands.

Seriously. I'm proud of my English heritage. America went to war with them over independence. Am I suddenly un-American? I'm both. And that's what America is about. My allegience is to America, my heritage to England.

Now whats so different if you replace England with Spain, Mexico, Portugal, Iran, Afghanistan?

But you fail to realize this country gives him every right to do that with no punishment, just as if you wanted to soil a flag you could do so facing no punishment. Sad as it is and as angry as it may make you it is one of the freedoms...

This country also says illegal immigration is forbidden its a law. But does it adhere to that?

wow. like others have said. its a shame it didnt get what sparked the incident on film. i dont see a kid disgracing america. i see a teenager retaliating against a couple of racist frat boy looking jerks, who were disrespecting the boys heritage. the kids just wanted people to respect their heritage. they cant control where they are from. all they can do is be proud of where their from. america used to be a beautiful country. when the national anthem's lyrics were true. when the constitution was still effective. im an american. but i still say that this country has gone to sh**.
what do we have now? people claiming to be "proud" of america, but in reality are disrespecting other countries(like the guys in the truck in the video). racism. hatred.
i see it every where i go.

Let me tell you man. With my personality, if I was a witness to that incident. I probably would have done it before those kids. Those kids already desecrated that flag with their ill intent of use.

Having pride in the flag is one thing. Using that pride as an excuse to insult someone over their ethnic heritage and hide behind the flag is another.

I don't even think it's too far of a wager to say that anyone in the military who has a TRUE respect for the use of the flag would see what those kids were using the flag for was also disrespectful.

Exactly, and what people fail to realize is that its the immigration that makes America what it is and the great country that it is. And people also seem to forget that unless you are a Native American that this really isnt your land anyway.....

It's whities fault when he is using incendiary remarks and shouting at people with the intent to incite anger and conflict. Doesn't take more than one casual watch of that video to see what happened.

I dont dispute that one bit, I do believe that whites get descriminated against but you gotta call a racist pig a racist pig when you see one you cant just let him off the hook because he is white, black, or hispanic

Im talking logically you are not. Why is it ok for a mexican to show pride but the whites are racists if they show it??? Why the double standard???
WHY?

This has nothing to do with that incident. I disagree with those kids being escorted out over their shirt choice. But then again, it appears to be obviously politically motivated in protest of the Arizona immigration measure.

Two wrongs dont make a right.
