Identity change goes thru 5 stages:
First, you believe what the dominant culture tells you about yourself
Second, you are getting a hint that it ain't true.
Third, you realize you have been had, and you get mad as h**l.
Fourth, you are still angry, but youbegin educating yourself about what you really are, rather than what you have been told you are.
Fifth, you let the anger go, as you fully integrate to your own new identity. What the dominant culture says is no longer relevant to your own identity.
Yo' Gringa in Mananland, quit trying to appease the Mexican culture. The more you give them, the more they want. Live your own life, take pride in who you are and continue learning of other cultures. Not trying to make them feel better about themselves. You can't make people feel pride in their own race if they don't already feel that way and it's not your responsibility to do so.
A Mexican is a citizen of Mexico. Apparently they and you are rather racist. Do you write this column from Mexico. Me thinks that you "the very smart one" should help your fellow men.
Güeros are not very popular in España either. They're usually Vascos who often think they're better than the la raza. Look up Limpieza de Sangre.
You might want to add that under the dictatorship of Santa Ana, there was very little freedom and that those few who took on the entire Mex. Army, stood for that freedom that all in the area desired. But it was a handful of freedom loving Tejanos that put their lives on the line and, ultimately, won. Some were actual Mexicans. The struggle was about the love of freedom not racist ideology as what many would have us believe. And as far as the Tejanos adhering to the issue of slavery, you might want to look at Santa Ana's whole country, especially the elitists, that treated its populace as slaves.
I have supported protests in this country because things do change. But when there are protests for immigration that include illegals here in America it really boils my blood. Law enforcement should raid these protests and arrest and deport those who are illegal.
First of all these illegals are felons by breaking federal law by being here. If they have no respect for our laws in the first place, they disrespect the people that are doing the right thing but trying to enter our country going through the right channels. If you disrespect our laws we DON'T WANT YOU HERE!!
You are going to make this great country of ours onto a 3rd World Country.
An American the right way
Yeah, no threats or violence in Anglo US History, eh? *facepalm*
Aztlan is a myth created by a culture that is devoid of a true heritage. Or at least one that they can be proud of. So they made up one based on Aztec history. The only problem: Most that claim Aztlan have little to zero Aztec blood in them. Spanish, German, Irish, Chinese, etc. but not a single drop of Aztec blood. Many of these so-called Aztlaneros continue to fabricate myths to support their cause such as they espouse the lie that the U.S. stole the SW from Mex. when in fact, a total of $41,000,000 was paid for it. Now they threaten violent revolution ie; "OCCUPIED AMERICA" BY RODOLFO ACUÑA (but they need to get the 5th edition - IMPORTANT!)
ALSO, TELL THEM TO READ (THEY CAN GET IT THROUGH "INTERLIBRARY LOAN" (FREE) IF THEIR LIBRARY DOESN'T CARRY IT:
2. "MESSAGE TO AZTLÁN" BY RODOLFO "CORKY" GONZALES (there are poems that tell the kids to make a war on the U.S., to kill white people and so much more!
So as we can see, Aztlan is a myth created by a culture that lives by threats, theft and living off of the hard work of others, by claiming welfare benefits when their illegals come to the U.S. and then trying to steal land and all that goes with it, using threats and intimidation. La Raza is the heritatage that they claim and that has permeated our society (Almost all criminal latin based gangs claim La Raza and sport tattoos depicting Aztec symbolism: Aztlan).
Well reading this post was a great waste of time. The author is a disgrace to his race with all of his disgusting language and put downs of not only women but his own race as well as other ones. GA needs to go out and get a real job as he's a total failure as a columnist. A Dear Helen he is not! A piece of garbage that demeans his culture and himself, he is!
I think, McLaury, you may have skipped 4th grade. That's when we all learned the meaning of "it's."
Which is the contraction of "It is."
You used "it's" when you meant to use "its."
Shame on you...
I wish I could read this column. My mother tongue is English, and, since I live in America, have studied the subject and am fairly good at it, am puzzled why, after trying to read this column cannot comprehend it's meaning because of the slanted Spanish.
Shame, I really would like to know what they are talking about.
Thats funny pancho. You made that up. Or it was your daughter.
"like so many people who work in dangerous jobs no güero would accept" -- Bull! It's the low pay, not the danger guera. Talk to any one from the Ironworkers union about dangerous work. That's one of those unions decimated by the importation of illegals to work jobs for dirt cheap.
Asking a Mexican is ok, as long as when you ask them if they are an American and they answer yes. If they come back with Mexican, then you and he can stay Stuck On Stupid!
I think I'll "Ask a Mexican", before I'll Believe an American- gringo. :)
I guess that's why the whores down in Ciudad Juarez as far back as the early 60's, would walk around the bar sticking things like smoking pipes, cigarettes, etc. into their genitals. It was the Gringo's fault! In fact, the reason Mexican illegals in general, are so pathetic is because of the Gringos! This "Mexican" (the author) must be related to Obama. Everything he does wrong must be Bush's fault. Everything the illegals do, is the Gringo's fault. Let me guess, the "Mexican" is an active member of La Raza!!!
The lady said that mexicans do not tip decently. And your answer is they do. Uh? The question was why not if. Gus, what race are you?
The difference here, according to a friend of mine, who has been a waitress for many yrs. in AZ., is that American Mexicans tip like normal U.S. citizens. but that those that appear to be ILLEGAL (you can always tell by their dress, lack of English language capability, etc.)hardly ever tip.
"no one's going to wait for a superfluous piece of paper when you're starving".
I must have missed the news of the 30 year famine in Mexico. Mexicans cut in line to come to the promised land illegally so they can afford a house with plumbing and a car. Well, who can blame them? The sob story is to get the bleeding heart gabachos all teary eyed.
