Why in the Immigration forum some trolls are trying to defame the Mexican Nation & stereotype Mexicans?

Then if Mexicans answer them back, they cry anti-semitism!

They pretend to make us believe we mexicans, are still Aztecs who speak nahuatl.
They think we Mexicanos are Native Americans, and they try to label us as Browns. According to them Hitler was the devil and Ariel Sharon is a hero.
bah!

I am Mexican and I don’t need that cheap tehoric!
I am proud of my nation, my language, my religion, my beliefs, my values, my people, and proud of America, my adoptive country.

  3. SHORT TEXAS/MEXICAN HISTORY

    Anglo-American society in the nineteenth century did not concern itself over the education of Texas-Mexican children, since farmers and ranchers had little need for a literate working class. Where public schooling might exist, however, Tejano families urged their children to attend. Those who could afford it, on the other hand, enrolled their youngsters in private religious academies and even in colleges. Select communities established local institutions with a curriculum designed to preserve the values and heritage of Mexico. Not until the 1920s did government take a serious interest in upgrading education for Tejanitos, but even then, society provided inferior facilities for them. Texas-Mexican children ordinarily attended "Mexican schools" and were discouraged from furthering their education past the sixth grade. Attendance in these schools, however, did have the effect of socializing and Americanizing an increased number of young folks whose parents were either foreign-born or unacculturated. Though Texas Mexicans had protested educational inequalities since the second decade of the century, it was not until the 1930s that they undertook systematic drives against them-namely as members of LULAC, but also through local organizations such as the Liga Pro-Defensa Escolar (School Improvement Leagueqv) in San Antonio. Before World War II, however, the educational record for Tejanos proved dismal, as poverty and administrative indifference discouraged many from regular attendance. The children of migrant parents, for example, received their only exposure to education when the family returned to its hometown during the winter months. After the war, the G.I. Forum joined in the struggle to improve the education of the Mexican community with the motto "Education is Our Freedom." With LULAC, the forum campaigned to encourage parents and students to make education a priority. Both organizations also worked through the legal system and successfully persuaded the courts to desegregate some districts. During the 1950s, indeed, Tejanos witnessed slight improvement in their educational status, though this may have been partly due to the rural-to-urban transition of the time. City life meant better access to schools, better enforcement of truancy laws, and less migration if heads of families found more stable employment. The gap between Mexican-American and Anglo achievement remained wide, however, and after the 1960s, MALDEF leveled a legal assault on issues such as racial segregation and the inequitable system of dispersing public funds to school districts. Concerned parents and legislators also strove for a better-educated community by supporting such programs as Head Start and bilingual education.qv In more recent times, however, Mexican-American students still had the highest dropout rate of all ethnic groups. In part, this explained the fact that Mexican-American students average only ten years in school.

  5. you are right because people from here think that MEXICANS are criminals and their not. I am MEXICAN too and even though I haven’t got a chance to go to visit my people I still think about them all the time. I am very proud to be a Mexican.

  6. The vast majority of pro criminal illegal immigration comments here come from trolls and those seeking to silence the American majority opposed to illegal immigrants and illegal immigration.

    You people stereotype yourselves.

    People are also sick of pro criminal illegal aliens reporting Americans on yahoo when they didn’t violate the terms and for using racist names like gringo against Americans.

    Yahoo is a multinational corporation based in sodomite San Francisco and they fully support illegal immigration to staff their products, to earn more money and to screw Americans.

  7. they have made it their agenda to misinform the uneducated Americans into believing that Mexicans r the worst ppl in the USA. Personally i am proud to be a Mexican American. I appreciate both my Mexican ancestry & culture as well as my American culture.
    The ppl that should be criticized r the politicians running the "illegal game" while the US is being divided by pure ignorance and hate.
    I could care less about what other individuals think of me, & i respect those who respect me. the ignorant individuals on here who believe everything in the media are just plain ignorant and naive.

  8. Well, I am not Hispanic. I am of German and Italian dissent but since we have been in the U.S. for 4 generation now, I simply tell people I am 100% U.S. American.

    That said; let me answer your question. "I have NO IDEA why there are ignorant people in the world, there just are." And that is regardless of nationality, race, creed, gender or upbringing."

    As I have said many times to people, my issues are NOT with the nationality of a person, but with their illegal status in this country and their attitude once they get here.

    Some people look at statistics and assume that just because the stats show an unfavorable picture of a specific group of people, that it gives them the right to hate, dislike or otherwise put down these people. IT DOESN’T!!!

    It’s good to be proud of your heritage, and a Mexican or any Hispanic heritage is just as good and any other heritage, not better and no worse. It’s not the heritage of a person that determines a persons worth. It’s the person themselves.

    That said, I have seen people who write some pretty stupid and ignorant comments on this Q&A forum, but I have also seen a few people state simple facts for the purpose of displaying facts and then get accused of being ignorant or even racist. So let me point something out. When most people in the U.S. think of illegal immigrants, they think of Mexicans and other people from Central and South American countries. This is not because of some inherent dislike for Mexicans or any Hispanic culture, or at least not for most. The facts show that most illegal immigrants ARE from Mexico and other Hispanic nations. According to a report published by the Pew Hispanic Center (a division of the Pew Research Center), Mexicans make up about 57% of the illegal immigrants in the U.S. with another 24% coming from Central American and South American countries. That would account for approximately 81% of the illegal immigrants in the Untied States. Also, in numerous polls published in various magazines and by various organizations shows that a vast majority of Central and South American Hispanics, particularly Mexican believe that they have the right to enter the U.S. at any time regardless of the law. (This does not go over well with most Americans. About 82% of Americans according to a Time magazine poll believe that the border should be locked down tighter and the U.S. isn’t doing enough to prevent illegal immigration. 61% of U.S. citizens polled said they are less sympathetic to illegal aliens as a result of the Immigration protests last year. But to balance that out, 78% of Americas are in favor of allowing illegal immigrants already in the U.S. citizenship if they learn English, are gainfully employed and pay taxes. 72% are in favor of allowing illegal immigrants to get temporary US work visas. Only 52% said of the U.S. Citizens polled by Zogby believe there should be no amnesty of any sort.)

    Still, a good friend of mine, a Nationalized Citizen originally from Mexico, came to the U.S. worked hard and earned his citizenship. He did it all legally as have many of his friends and all of his family members. Those he knows that are illegal, he tries to convince to find a way to become legal. On a side note, he is also very proud of his Mexican heritage as well as his new U.S. home.

    Personally, I think our immigrations laws are a little too stringent, and I do believe we need to make a few (okay, many) changes, however, until that happens, illegal aliens, whether from Mexico, China, Belgium, Canada or Paraguay should be prosecuted and expelled. Then again, I think anyone dumb enough to group all people together based on nationality should be expelled too, even if they are citizens. (I have a very low tolerance for bigotry in particular and any form of stupidity in general)

    So, I guess my point is that some people are simply ignorant and rude. They take facts and twist them to promote their own twisted prejudices and then hope that other people are ignorant enough take the lies with the truth.

    As far as I can tell from my own research and experiences, Mexico is ripe with culture and good, well meaning people. Currently, the Mexican economy is less then good and life in many areas is exceptionally hard. Therefore, many people in Mexico (and other south American countries) want to get out and go someplace they can earn a living and make a better life for themselves and their families. Their options are to come to the U.S. or go to Canada. (Anyplace else requires boat or air fair and is generally cost prohibitive or the new location has an economy on par with what they are trying to escape.)

    As far as I am concerned, people who want to come to the U.S. to make a better life for themselves are more then welcome so long as they are willing to do their part here in the U.S. If they pay their taxes, work hard and when they become citizens vote and take part in the process that is the U.S. way of life, then great. If they just want work without any obligation to the U.S., then they should get out. (By the way, this is what I tell people that were born here and don’t do their part.)

    I am against opening the borders and just letting anyone who wants in, access to our country. However, I don’t think we should be so locked down that good people looking to better themselves have to sneak in through a back door either. There must be a balance we can find.

    I hope this answers your question or at least gives you some food for thought.
