it means death kill..


Matamoros?

No, it means Killer of Moors or Moor Slayer. Moros is the Spanish word for Moors(Arabs). The name is a surname, it dates back to about the 9th century, during Moorish occupied Spain.

The surname comes from St James, who in Spanish is known as Santigo Matamoros or James the Moor Slayer. He supposedly appeared in a battle to help King Ramiro I and his outnumbered troops defeat the Moors.

I do a great deal of volunteer work with the LDS genealogical centers, specializing in Spanish genealogy in the Caribbean and Latin America.


Mariano Matamoros, an important Independence War general.

now can the rest of ye "experts" stfu?
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1154447

"Moors" are not a distinct or self-defined people. Medieval and early modern Europeans applied the name primarily to Berbers, but also at various times to Arabs, Muslim Iberians and West Africans from Mali and Niger who had been absorbed into the Almoravid dynasty. Mainstream scholars observed in 1911 that "The term 'Moors' has no real ethnological value" - it basically means "black".

We're all well aware of your anti American feelings and your contempt. That said, there is nothing stupid about taking both sides of the lake. Nobody is free to use and enjoy the lake because of Mexico's corruption and inability to control drug cartels from claiming it as their territory. Unlike a land border, it's not enough to defend one side.


Oh yeah sure, invading a countries territorial integrity is such a passive response. Listen up dipshit, the moment I brag about taking over your corner of paradise you can call me arrogant, militaristic, contemptuous and aggressively anti American. In the meantime "we" will see through your charade and pathetic roll playing as innocent victim, and "we" will call a spade a spade: A typical American low life pushing others to war for no other reason than you prey on destruction, and you worship your Government and your war capabilities to entertain you, for the most simplistic and primitive impulse of the murderous psychopath. Such a moron as yourself needs to face the same horrors you wish on others. And I pray to God that one day you get it...

That isnt anti American, deary, that is just common sense...


Am sorry, but am laughing at you.. your Rage, your Hate and on top of it, your lack of Intelligence.

I could spend my time trying to educate you in the fallacy of your idea's, but I lack the time and the desire.

Last time I checked, nations had borders. You either respect a border nations laws or you don't. It really is as simple as that.. Can't control the border in you country, well just like mother nature, something will come along and control it for you..

Now, since you feel the need to attack verbally a border country, I must stop and ask you -

Why are you placing a women as one of your police leaders? Is that collective best foot forward your country can place to help fix the internal problems?

The above statement says more then you could ever whine and cry about what you think of Americans. Ask me what I think about Mexicans..

As far as your countries problems with drugs,economy, kidnappings, extortion, it would really seem to me, that you have many issues to work on before you cast your problems off on others or other countries.

I can only hope that some day you will sit down and educate yourself in what is really happening world wide, and then stop and take a good look inside.

Sadly, I really don't see that happening though..

Mexico has a definition closely resembling E pluribus
unum
ie the two founding cultures fuse to create one,
ie Mexican. Race is a non starter since intermarriage has
been happening since 1519. I realize that race is much more
of a concern to some (around issues of identity, heritage),
and so everything is measured against its "purity", ie half
breeds are a threat to those concerned with their identity
because "purity" of race is all they have that ties them to
their mother country. Why they find it important is an
historical legacy where colonials and natives were
separated by threat of sanction, and both were looked down
on by most of the superior colonial power. Of course
this definition of race is only as old as Euro colonialism,
so obviously this type of racism is intimately linked to
economic subjugation but disguises itself as something
else.
This is a very long story and I could discuss it at length...

For once I do agree with the poster south of the border.

I don't know about Az, Nm, or Cali - but here in Texas, we take the mexican culture and influence seriously. We love the food, we love the people. Where else can you find hispanic americans that have family names that have been part of Texas for 150+ years ? Don't trash the hispanic culture.
I know there are people who will talk bad about any race, especially those 350 pound, living in mommas basement in New England fucks. BTW - I am a blonde hair blue eyed german and a Texan - you know, that state you are all gonna flee to when TSHTF !


I'm fine where I am, just in case TSTHTF is a 2000m tsunami. And blond haired Texans are more than welcome. But thanks for the invite, My papi was born there and I have his stories that go back to the 1920s...


I went to school with Mexicans, had a Mexican boyfriend. Never had any problems where I lived, out in the Calif desert. The problems have come about due to illegals. They come to the USA and hang our flag upside down, flip us off while doing so. They call us gringo, but not in the friendly way my friends from South America do.

I consider the unstopped flow of illegals as a deliberate act by the current regime. I wish an attorney would step up and file a class action suit, naming certain peoples in Washington. Either force them to protect our borders, or try them for treason.

OMG it never ends!

It is TREASON to leave our borders unsecured like this!
Americans and Mexicans are DYING because our border is open for business.

Everytime and American tourist dies, everytime and illegal dies while being smuggled in for cheap labor, everytime someone is killed in the drug war...there is blood on the hands of those who should secure our borders for the good of both nations.

When will this insanity stop?


When the government legalizes drugs and takes the money out of the hands of the criminals. It's the same for prohibition of anything. The government runs the illegal drug market to finance things they don't want you to know about.

Look at alcohol... Once contraband and surrounded by crime. Now it's legal and no more black market or crime.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1099810


True but alcohol is a non addictive substance for most people. Most can drink on the weekends and then maintain a responsible and functioning life. Feed their children, hold a job, ect.

These harsher drugs, heroin, meth, ect, are highly addictive, toxic and disabling in short order. So prohibition/making them illegal, is the best thing to do.

Look at cigs. If cigarettes were illegal it would solve a lot of problems because they are so adictive. And being illegal and not readily available would solve a big problem. Most people who smoke wish they would have never started. But once addition sets in all the logic and desire to stop is pretty much mute. Unlike alcohol were someone can lose a job for being responsible and then just say, I wont do that again or get a DWI and realize its not worth it. People who have an addition dont care about anything else but getting their next fix. They will steal and kill to get it. An alcoholic will lay on the floor dying and still pick up a bottle if they could. Their children can go hungry and they dont care. The justification process of addiction makes education and the school of hard knocks pretty much mute. Now consider how not only addictive but toxic and disabling meth and heroin are and much of these drugs that are being brought in and made here illegally. The less that is readily availible the better because kids will try them for fun and then be addicted in short form and they are so toxic and diabling that just telling someone to stop doesnt work. Its too late. Or even if the child wants to stop its too late. The addiction will take over all their logic and senses and they will justify their next fix even to the ultimate degree.

You dont want those kinds of drugs readily available by making drugs legal. Prohibition doesnt work when it comes to substances which are for most people non addictive and relatively non harmful in both moderate amounts and most social situations.

theres a difference between natural disasters hitting a bunch of welfare dependent lowlifes in new orleans, and american citizens having no protection from the violent incursions of foreign drug cartels. The government's number one duty is to protect its citizens from outside forces, not to rebuild a f'd up city after mother nature hits because they are too incompetent/unwilling to do it themselves. Also the native americans were smart enough not to live in the new orleans area due to the fact they knew it was constantly flooding, but the people living there today act surprised when it happens.

The Sand Creek Massacre
Southern Cheyenne
November 29, 1864



Colorado Territory during the 1850's and 1860's was a place of phenomenal growth spurred by gold and silver rushes. Miners by the tens of thousands had elbowed their way into mineral fields, dislocating and angering the Cheyennes and Arapahos. The Pike's Peak Gold Rush in 1858 brought the the tension to a boiling point. Tribesmen attacked wagon trains, mining camps, and stagecoach lines during the Civil War, when the military garrisons out west were reduced by the war. One white family died within 20 miles of Denver. This outbreak of violence is sometimes referred to as the Cheyenne-Arapaho War or the Colorado War of 1864-65.

Governor John Evans of Colorado Territory sought to open up the Cheyenne and Arapaho hunting grounds to white development. The tribes, however, refused to sell their lands and settle on reservations. Evens decided to call out volunteer militiamen under Colonel John Chivington to quell the mounting violence.

Evans used isolated incidents of violence as a pretext to order troops into the field under the ambitious, Indian-hating territory military commander Colonel Chivington. Though John Chivington had once belonged to the clergy, his compassion for his fellow man didn't extend to the Indians.




In the spring of 1864, while the Civil War raged in the east, Chivington launched a campaign of violence against the Cheyenne and their allies, his troops attacking any and all Indians and razing their villages. The Cheyennes, joined by neighboring Arapahos, Sioux, Comanches, and Kiowas in both Colorado and Kansas, went on the defensive warpath.

Evans and Chivington reinforced their militia, raising the Third Colorado Calvary of short-term volunteers who referred to themselves as "Hundred Dazers". After a summer of scattered small raids and clashes, white and Indian representatives met at Camp Weld outside of Denver on September 28. No treaties were signed, but the Indians believed that by reporting and camping near army posts, they would be declaring peace and accepting sanctuary.
Black Kettle was a peace-seeking chief of a band of some 600 Southern Cheyennes and Arapahos that followed the buffalo along the Arkansas River of Colorado and Kansas. They reported to Fort Lyon and then camped on Sand Creek about 40 miles north.

Shortly afterward, Chivington led a force of about 700 men into Fort Lyon, and gave the garrison notice of his plans for an attack on the Indian encampment. Although he was informed that Black Kettle has already surrendered, Chivington pressed on with what he considered the perfect opportunity to further the cause for Indian extinction. On the morning of November 29, he led his troops, many of them drinking heavily, to Sand Creek and positioned them, along with their four howitzers, around the Indian village.
Black Kettle ever trusting raised both an American and a white flag of peace over his tepee. In response, Chivington raised his arm for the attack. Chivington wanted a victory, not prisoners, and so men, women and children were hunted down and shot.

With cannons and rifles pounding them, the Indians scattered in panic. Then the crazed soldiers charged and killed anything that moved. A few warriors managed to fight back to allow some of the tribe to escape across the stream, including Black Kettle.

The colonel was as thourough as he was heartless. An interpreter living in the village testified, "THEY WERE SCALPED, THEIR BRAINS KNOCKED OUT; THE MEN USED THEIR KNIVES, RIPPED OPEN WOMEN, CLUBBED LITTLE CHILDREN, KNOCKED THEM IN THE HEAD WITH THEIR RIFLE BUTTS, BEAT THEIR BRAINS OUT, MUTILATED THEIR BODIES IN EVERY SENSE OF THE WORD." By the end of the one-sided battle as many as 200 Indians, more than half women and children, had been killed and mutilated.

While the Sand Creek Massacre outraged easterners, it seemed to please many people in Colorado Territory. Chivington later appeared on a Denver stage where he regaled delighted audiences with his war stories and displayed 100 Indian scalps, including the pubic hairs of women.

Chivington was later denounced in a congressional investigation and forced to resign. When asked at the military inquiry why children had been killed, one of the soldiers quoted Chivington as saying, "NITS MAKE LICE." Yet the after-the-fact reprimand of the colonel meant nothing to the Indians.

As word of the massacre spread among them via refugees, Indians of the southern and northern plains stiffened in their resolve to resist white encroachment. An avenging wildfire swept the land and peace returned only after a quarter of a century.
