Re: “How do I properly say 'hola' to Mexicans?

Buenar tardes amigo!
If your ancestors came here fluent in English...why did they come here?? and where from??
I am sure you enjoy mexican food, nice roofs, nice laid off highways, nice lawncare, nice cleaning ladies... and the nice meat the "mexicans" slaughter and cut up for your beautiful summer parties on your deck...Pretty soon though.. their children will become your boss or your children's bosses, given the statistics. Before this happens, I suggest that you get a hold of your pompous attitude as this will be THEIR country as much as it is yours...just like this country is now "yours" after some generations when it was not....By then, you may want to migrate or and experience something that might help you grow !! Regardless, it will be a great time to experience as "Americans" will be taught or at least, exposed, to some good manners, traditions, respect and care for the community and family. A lost tradition in "America" Cordialmente, Ana

Re: “How do I properly say 'hola' to Mexicans?

I quote the story: "the clerk and his wife who are talking in Spanish to each other, I'll come across as one of those gringos who wants everyone to speak English to him. " Welcome to America. Try to learn the language or live your life's separate - I don't care either is fine. If I go to Mexico I expect 99% of people to speak Spanish.....and I wouldn't expect them to speak English just for me (or Martian if I was from Mars) I mean IS there something I'm missing here??? I know the universal "gringo" sign language, hers one for ya!

Re: “How do I properly say 'hola' to Mexicans?

I'm SOOOOO glad that I'm not the only person to hate the situation. Since our city has been infested, we've had more grafiti, more deaths caused by unlicensed illegals behind the wheel of an auto, and it's starting to look trashier every day. To top it all off, those that haven't managed to steal a job are gettin fat off of welfare......which us AMERICANS pay for.

Re: “How do I properly say 'hola' to Mexicans?

America!! what is America?? Who made America what it is right now??? Do you speak any of the Native Indian languages? Do you speak Spanish, French, Portuguese, German, Japanese, etc etc??? Where did your ancestors come from? And what language did they speak? Did they come to America fluent in English??? Have you considered learning another language ever??? I encourage you to stay where you are at and not to go Mexico or anywhere outside the USA. If you did, you would definitely be an embarrashment to "America"

Re: “How do I properly say 'hola' to Mexicans?

It is nice that he is trying to learn just to be social and a good neighbor and also to keep his bussines groing with the type of culture he is been around, at the same time we as people to come to this country, we should try al least to learn all basic words to show the people from here that we are here just because we need to feed our families and we respect everybody like we would like the people from here to do the same with us, of course you will have criminals like all over the world and those take it ASAP and sent them were they belong.But remember that American indians are actually the only true americans in USA.

Re: “Why doesn't the Mexican translate all his Spanish words?

Wow, lash out and hurt anyone you can...real health way to live...by the way psychologists can not prescribe medication. Any truely educated person would know that. My best advise to you is... when you listen instead of hearing you will finally learn.

Re: “Why doesn't the Mexican translate all his Spanish words?

Dear Tiger Mom,
I feel your pain. I know my daughter went through a similar thing. My daughter happens to be Mexican on behalf of me and Middle Eastern on behalf of her dad. I had to talk to my daughter and reassure her that the person who was bullying her was a jealous person. I believe the others are jealous because Caucasian girls are beautiful no doubt. I also took my frustration and sent a link of what bullying does to kids right back to the principal. My daughter says the principal interrupted Gym class in 6th grade and announced they would be reviewing bullying and what it does. So I know the pain is there but use it to propel you to a greater sense of accomplishment. I would ask my daughter who is responsible for those hurtful comments and discuss it with the principal so that the parties are made responsible and they may know how hurtful it is to call someone out of their name. Hope this helps.
Peace in Christ,
Mommy in Olathe

Re: “Why doesn't the Mexican translate all his Spanish words?

That.. is not...
what I...
said.
Do try to pay attention, darling.
That said, I can see you have no intention of changing your views for your own betterment, and would much rather put others down in a subtle and demeaning manner in order to justify yourself; as such, I am not going to speak with you any more on the subject. Oh, and... just because a person puts it on the table that they have and perhaps struggle with a certain extra issue, does not mean that they, as you put it, play the victim. I do not do that; never have, never will. Nuff said. Peace be upon you.

Re: “Why doesn't the Mexican translate all his Spanish words?

In other words, you dont take any responsibility for your actions. People with ASSperger's that have been shown to be more than capable of learning different behavior. Your comment on multiple disorders simply proves that you've been hoodwinked by an unethical psychologist (and exactly HOW many meds does he/she have you on...?) that has convinced you that you have no control over your own behavior. It is unfortunate, but not anyone else effin problem but yours. It all boils down to our own choices. Please choose to be empowered rather than a victim (as your psychologist would have you).

Re: “Why doesn't the Mexican translate all his Spanish words?

Uh-huh. have you ever heard of Asperger's? Or other mental issues? Your own comment shows just how ignorant you are, unfortunately. Because people can't always help their reaction. It's chemicals, people. Despite the best intentions, sometimes the chems and other body-aspects pf physicality just aren't up to the task of properly deciphering other's behaviour, or, for that matter, responding in a non-harmful way to it. I happen to HAVE a mood disorder, as well as Asperger's, ADHd and other things that affect Impulse Control and perception of others' social cues and comments. And yet, I struggle every day trying not to let my moods get the best of me. They frighten me, b ecasue I do not want to be an animal, and yet, animals are what we are. that is the task of intellect, to temper with compassion and galvanize with love in order to understand the environment we live in. And still people do what they do. The mind cannot yet, it seems to me, fully control itself, nor its impulses. Case in point, your comment, my comment, hell, everyone's comment. People would be surprised if they realized just how much our daily lives revolve around the need for or the shying away from sensation. Consider that, if you will. Peace be upon you.

Re: “Why doesn't the Mexican translate all his Spanish words?

There is no such thing as racism. Its all just prejudice. Prejudice is a necessary part of being human. It, like most things, can be abused and is often. I remind everyone, that sticks and stones can break your bones but words can never hurt you. Funny that a children's rhyme, states so eloquently what most adults seem to forget. You have to allow others to demean or hurt you. Why would you want to take to heart the words of another when they only come from a place of ignorance or stupidity? Maybe ignorance and stupidity on the recipients part?

Re: “Why doesn't the Mexican translate all his Spanish words?

Dear Mister Arellano,
Hola!

And what would you tell those girls who called that other girl a -white bitch-? how would you deal with their prejudice if you were , say, a:

Student?
Teacher?
Parent?
Police Officer?

Might you, as a columnist, be willing to describe such, for the benefit of your readers?

I ask because, although I was not as much a victim of racial abuse as every OTHER kind in school, I feel the need to raise awareness across lines, being a person with many extra issues which would in most cases facilitate extra abuse. Thank you for writing your column. And as for all those abusive comments down there about the other commenters, I am:

American
Seminole
Scottish
Irish
German
etc.

Please don't hurt yourselves by trying hurt others.

Remember what Ghandi said, at least -I- try to:
"It is always possible to be kind."
And if you feel you don't want to, you should get psychological assistance. Please. For your own sakes!
