That's a blanket statement made about all Mexicans. Not some illegals but about an entire race of people. That's ignorant and racist.
We have a large number of illegals here in S Florida as well but there are as many Americans, white,black, brown and yellow, recieving government benefits and working off the books. I'd be willing to be even more than the # of Illegals doing so.
Can you honestly say you have never been paid cash by a customer that you maybe forgot to report to the IRS?
I have had 22 heart operations. Was told at 24 that I would never work again. Spent 3 1/2 months in ICU had 6 surgeries, had an implanted defibrillator and a pacemaker implanted and was back to work within a month of being released from the hospital. Need a transplant now, many years later and I still work. Never took any handouts. No disability though I was entitled. And yes I'm half Mexican and my son's are 3/4 Mexican, oldest graduated NYU youngest starts at FSU in June.
And no, you didn't pay for their education. Their mother and I worked,saved and paid for it.
So don't say your not racist when you make a blanket statement about an entire race of people based on the actions of a few.
The only reason I even said Mexican at all was because that was how it was reported on the news which I thought was kind of strange. Everyone generalizeswhen speaking of illegals and calls them Mexicans even though many are from other countries, I suppose I should have said "Illegals " steal jobs every day. None of that was the point anyway. It was to make fun of the fact that people want this guy in jail for stealing bradys jersey and that it's bigger news then many more important things going on.
In fact the next day it was mentioned on the front page pointing to a large article in the sports section.
When we write things or text things, they, many times are taken wrongly or come across wrong. It happens. Plenty of times here I wonder if someone meant that the way it sounded. I have said here many times that most of my posts are meant as sarcastic humor and I will say it again. Anyone who doesn't like it can just ignore my posts no harm no foul. hopefully most people get a laugh out of some of my posts. as Jet fans we need it
