The entire internet is an awful place full of jerks.
That's true... and I guess is the most "honest" world outhere... people feel like they have the biggest balls behind their nicknames/usernames.
I was born in Mexico, and obviously I love my country. It just makes me sad to see what has turned into, the violence and drug cartels taking over (officially, since they have been controlling everything for a long ass time). But I refuse to believe that ALL Mexicans are what people think they are. We have strong values, just as any other person from other countries have. Yes, we have really bad people, but it is NOT the majority of the people in Mexico. If there is anything that hurts more than racist people putting Mexicans down, is reading articles or watching the news and reading/hearing a "Mexican" last name (hispanic or latin), because of those people we all suffer, we get judged by the actions of a few. I have never commited a crime in my life, I have never been arrested, I consider myself a good person... I have been called a "criminal" to my face at a MCC's Group Speaking class, and the teacher did nothing about it. I have been put in a CAGE, and taken to the Immigration "jail" (I'm not sure what is called) when I was only 16 for not having my papers. I have never been in this country illegally, I came to this country as a Resident, and a few years back I received my Citizenship. I'm proud of being part of this country, if you ask me, I would never go back and live in Mexico (only for a few days for the tacos), but not because I don't love Mexico, but because I have a family and all my friends in this country. I hate the way we are being portrayed in the media... and I know, there is always going to be ignorant people in this world, but I can't help to be affected by the way the people I know, that have values, that are honest, friendly people, are being associated with criminals just because of their nationality or the way they look.
woah, woah, woah. if we'd known you were a mexican we wouldn't have let you on our message board. what part of ILLEGAL don't you understand?
sorry - just trying to make this feel more like azcentral for you.
Now, you will not be invited for "carne asada" in my patio any time soon >
