Hispanics, congratulations!!!!
« on: January 21, 2003, 03:34:14 PM »
Hispanics were just announced as the largest minority in America, overtaking blacks.  That's pretty wild; the census bureau said that the hispanic immigration rate is much higher, as well as the rebirth rate.  Another thing, though, is that hispanics are an ethnic group, so they can be any race or color... more people identify themselves as hispanice than black, or whatever, because it's an ethnicity.  But anyways, they said that it's something like

70% White/Caucasian
13% Hispanic
12.5% Black
4% Asian

Ain't that crazy? There's more hispanic than black people in america now, and there's hardly ANY kind of legislation or programs aimed at hispanics, while there's TONS of stuff aimed at blacks.  Hispanics oughta speak up and get their piece of the pie, lol.

dope, but most of my fellow brothers and sisters in the hispanic community are racist towards each other.  We like to go against each other for where are roots come from, like Mexico , Guatemala, Puerto Rico. and even though we are all hispanics, we are seperated. We cant unite.  And thats just ignorant

Fear not dogg, lots of nations around the world speak more than one language. It's good to know more than one laguage anyways. Necissitamos hablar con otra paises. English is not the only language in the world, and Latin America is very important to the U.S. And also, the United States is the nation of the world, many different people live here, and many people have a voice. It's about time we get a 2nd language. In Cali, Spanish has already been felt for some decades now. In L.A., you can live normally without eve speaking English. It wa once Mexico, made U.S. by force, so that's no surprise. As for the rest of the nation, it's all good.

Just to let you know man, America has been shaped by minorities. LIVE WITH IT.  If the U.S has a leader like you, we will be like Hitler trying to rule the world, OH WAIT we are starting to be like that. Be a man and respect your country for what it is, a multiracial country in where my dad has worked his ass off from being a worker to owning his business, my dad learned English on his own and made it .  Thats America

same here in bakersfield,lol, where i work, the only people who know english are the managers (6) and the front counter people another 6 , then me, so like 13 people out of the 60 or so people who work at my work speak english fluently, and just about every one except the 2 head managers are bilingual


it's so freaky going anywhere else in the world like london and canada (were i've been a few times) cuz your not the majority no more and you don't have a community net you can fall back on shoot even when i went to utah for the first time when i was 5 (first time outta cali too) i was like the kid from the sixth scence. i was all "i see white people" lol

so really it doesn't suprise me, being a so. cal resident that we're the majority of the minority population

yeah that's the idea,which IMO should be enforced more,  but it's not like they don't know ANY english, they're just not fluent in it, like you couldn't have an in depth conversation with them but you can say basic stuff  to them in simple words like, i use bathroom , i be back .....that's actually how ebonics came into play in this country lol

I know a lil' spanish, and I used to work at Winn Dixie.  This woman comes in, every day, and buys stuff, etc. and I check her out.  She can't speak 1 word of english.  She can't even understand "Hi".  One day, I asked her how long she had been in america (in spanish) and she remarked 50 years.  .................... 50 years.  I asked her if she meant 15 years? NOOOOO, 50 years.  50 years and hasn't picked up ONE FRIEKIN WORD? Man, Mormons go on missions all over the world, and speak fluent in 3 months.  You'd think after 50 years she would know english, lol.

Guess what, asshole? My dad was an immigrant too, and his entire family learned English quick as hell and speak it fluently. And my dad always taught me that in America you speak English. I can't speak a word of his native language.

If you wanna speak Spanish then go to Spain.

Actually, it is not all good. The US is a country made up of people of every possible race, religion, nationality, and color. Could you imagine what it would be like if we all spoke the language of our ancestors? It would be chaos. That is why you need one unifying language......English. It is ridculous that I can travel in my very own country to a place like LA and not be able to communicate with my own fellow citizens.

I think one of the reasons why immigrants these days do not want to learn English is because they are racist against white people/English speakers. They feel they are better than us and don't have to learn the language the way our ancestors did. They want US to learn THEIR language.....can you imagine that??????

Most hispanic immigrants come here to get paid, calling them racists is absurd.  Most of them dont have the time to be learning English  and working 2 jobs at the same time just to escape povery in their own country.  "If i cant talkto my fellow citizens then blah blah"  Man thats fucken BS you are talking,  if a muslim would be a citizen you would not even want to talk to them.

Hell yeah, Hispanic's representin' up in this biatch.... What part of 'WE TAKIN OVA don't you understizzand....


It's a trip though cuz when foreign people think about tha U.S they think of nothin but white people and some blacks... but they dont realize how many Latin people are around... This doesn't really change anything... there's still hella more white people (you can breathe easy CWalker).... It's just a cool thing to know...



Tha News people dont know what they started by letting that info out though... They just started a race.... blacks and hispanics are gonna be fuckin like crazy tryna up their numbers.... LOL.... Shit I feel like finding me some hoes and contributing to tha Raza... I'll do anything para mi Raza...  ;)

Man, get a life dogg, get off the right wing nut, and live in the real world. In the real world, immagrants come, they work in crappy ass jobs, live in their poor Spanish speaking community, and live their life. Their kids grow up, learn English, and like my dad, go to college, get a job, then their kids go to college, like me, and the cycle continues. We had a start with my grandpa, who came from Mexico, he worked the fields of Central California before Caeser Chavez came and helped us alot with the farm unions, more on that if you want. He did that since he was a little kid, quit, work building bridges for the United States new highway building in the 40's and 50's though the 70's, retired, build a house for his family, and died a very good man, and was admirred by many. The life of a Latin coming to the U.S. isn't what you always think, we get the jobs no one else wants, then people get pissy 'cause we are here. In Cali, we had Pete Wilson, a very racist man that was governor who wanted to kick us out the U.S., and all that shit. Fuck that, the U.S. is set to be majority Hispanic by 2050, so it'll be interesting what your views are on us then. After all, this was brown man land first, just the U.S. gov along time ago killed all the Native Americans, now the Native Americans from the south are coming in and taking their place. Don't get mad, an old Native chief predicted this. It's natural migration, and it should be imbraced as a way to make the United States more diverse. Now if only we get shows on English television, it will be all good.
