Re: “Ask a Mexican!

Something approaching all US jobs are filled by immigrants or the descendants of immigrants.

Mick hit a nerve there. Sorry, there were never any unions at Carls Jr.
Loved it when the E-Verify law passed in AZ an there were suddenly Americans (of all colors) working in the back of the fast food places. Yeah, the capitalists moaned, but when they all had to play by the same rules they bucked up and hired legal workers.

Re: “Ask a Mexican!

I have three questions for the individuals that believe Zimmerman is guilty of murder. Number one, When Martin was punching George with his fists, and pounding his head on the pavement, does anyone know at what point in time Trayvon planned to stop his attack on Zimmerman. Second question. Lets just say that Zimmerman was killed during the assault. Would you say that it was a justified homicide on behalf of Martin for being racially profiled by Zimmerman as some people claim he was. 3rd What charges if any, do you suppose the young Trayvor would have be charged with if this was the case.

Re: “Ask a Mexican!

MGTRRZ Sorry to get you all upset if you are a homosexual, MG. Please do not do anything stupid like jumping off from a bridge. Suicide is a permanent thing. My question was specifically about the Mexican sign for saying someone is a homosexual, striking the heart a couple of times with the fist. I have observed this among Mexicans I have worked with, particularly among the ones from Mexico.
Wonderful you would think the Aztecs had a Glorious culture, but I think the Spaniards improved it by getting rid of the human sacrifices. Of course, the Aztecs sometimes sacrificed a thousand captured members of other tribes in a day at their capital city, which would not really compare in numbers with modern human sacrifices in the form of abortions, but all in all, most people even today agree that it was a disgusting practice. Cortez once remarked to Montezuma that he could not understand how someone as intelligent and fair as Montezuma was in other aspects of his life could be so stupid as to believe in human sacrifices to idols.

Re: “Ask a Mexican!

I don't know what troubles me MOST about this ^ Post (rbwinn)... Your 'feigned' supposed-interest
and pseudo-knowledge of the Aztec Civilization as to it's Ritualistic Sacrificial Ceremonies OR - Your somewhat Convoluted Connecting of this Glorious Culture to a 21st Century-Homophobic
SLUR...I SUGGEST You Attempt to Dissect the 'mystery' of 'Closeted' Clergy here in America---the likes of Ted Haggard, Eddie Long and a host laundry-list of self-hating / schizophrenic Dual-Life degenerates...Don't leave out the Mormons!

Re: “Ask a Mexican!

I just read Bernal Diaz's book, The Conquest of New Spain, in which he describes the human sacrifice priests.
"They wore their hair very long, down to the waist, with some even reaching down to the feet, covered with blood and so matted together that it could not be separated, and their ears were cut to pieces by way of sacrifice, and they stank like sulfur, and they had another bad smell like carrion, and as they said, and we learnt that it was true, these priests were the sons of chiefs and they abstained from women, but they indulged in the cursed practice of sodomy."
In comparing this information to current "scientific" interpretation, the eldest sons of Aztec rulers inherited all property and became chiefs. Younger sons were encouraged to become human sacrifice priests. So we see that eldest sons were pre-disposed to be heterosexual, and younger sons were pre-disposed to be homosexual. Something in their genetics, no doubt. Even more baffling is what happened after the conquest. Cortez told the Aztec leaders that he was sent by the king of Spain to stop all human sacrifices and sexual perversions, so after the conquest the human sacrifice priests cut their waist long hair, and blended in with the rest of the population, if not, they were executed by the Spaniards. This would seem to indicate that homosexuals of that time could stop being homosexual if threatened with death, unlike the ones today, who seem to go the other way and jump off bridges or otherwise commit suicide all over the country if they are persecuted for being homosexual.
Perhaps you could give the Mexican perspective on this. Having been a younger son myself, I think some of these Aztec younger sons might have wanted to be something other than human sacrifice priests and homosexuals, and the Mexicans I have worked with have a sign about homosexuality that involves striking the heart a couple of times with their fist to indicate their displeasure with the practice. Do you think this dates back to the Aztecs?

Awesome-o! (sic) was the robot that Cartman pretended to be to fool Butters in South Park's season 8 episode titled "AWESOM-O." It was one of their greatest episodes ever!

Re: “Ask a Mexican!

Funny and sad -- the need of humans to create problems when its not necessary. All races have their differences and their prejudices. Whites use their religion and country of origin to distinguish themselves from one another. When criticism is within a race or group, let it be. Why be judgmental? Races and groups have the right to be critical of themselves. People cross the line when they criticize as OUTSIDERS. Outsiders need to stay out of it. Becoming involved when not fully educated on the culture or long-standing issues of others' history is what brings trouble.

Re: “Ask a Mexican!

I would like to know why Mexicans scream racism against anyone who is white, and yet they are more racist than any white person. I have experience this on more than one occasion, with having a Mexican sister-in law whose family is very racist. Speaks trash about white, speaks in Spanish behind your back, gives dirty faces if they see any Mexican with a white person. They scream racism, and say whites hate them, yet from what I have seen..it's all of bunch of BS coming from them.

Oh, yeah? Try taking a gun into Mexico. You'll find out about the meaning of the border pretty damn fast.

Re: “Ask a Mexican!

Dear Teach Her,

Gabacho is a derogatory term roughly equivalent to "stupid white woman," sort of the opposite of "stupid brown beanie"

You've been insulted by a racist turd, just in case you didn't know.

Re: “Ask a Mexican!

look, fruend. Nobody is ever going to get anywhere with that lumber on your shoulder. Start by admitting there is a JOINT problem in BOTH communities. I was a teacher in Yuma for 4 years grades 3-6. I KNOW the Mexican students, and I say Mexican, many were bussed La Otra. Don't try and razzle/dazzle me about 'giving a damn' I've seen Mexican mothers in school lobbys SCREAMING at principals and teachers b'cuz of infines/insignif items junior told mommy (sometimes true, othertimes not). The students often REFUSE to speak English, I had to call in the principal to TELL them solomente Inlise in le classe. It's the LAW. Then they listen. Now and then, I've taken guns off their kids, so, wise up, as Dr. Phil says, two sides to every story, and from you, we are NOT getting both sides.

Re: “Ask a Mexican!

Interesting...so this is no doubt one of the reasons that the United States Government will not secure the border...it may upset the government of Mexico if we secured the borders so their citizens couldn't come here and send money back to Mexico. Some of that money they send back, isn't even their money to send back...stealing from Americans. How do I know you may ask...several years ago our card number was stolen and some criminal tried to wire money out of our account...to guess where...MEXICO!

Re: “Ask a Mexican!

Yes, Yes!!!! Have to admit that it's nice to see someone finally admitting to the FACT that BILLIONS of American dollars got shipped out of country, and not used to bolster the local economies that they were earned in!!!
