Why do some people think all Spanish speaking people are Mexican
Some people on this board believe that anyone that writes anything Spanish must be an illegal Mexican wetback.

Just for the record, there are many of us who are not from Mexico, not illegal, are American citizens, came here legally and stayed here legally from other countries, came from Puerto Rico (an American commonwealth).

Because they're ignorant.
It's good to be open-minded, just don't let your brain fall out.

The same idiot (402198) that sparked my anger even wrote on another message that Puerto Ricans were grunt laborers for drug smuggling. Yeah, I'm sure there are some smugglers, but that's everywhere.

Still, this doesn't excuse those individuals who believe that every person who can speak Spanish is an illegal Mexican wetback.

Think of Bill Clinton's mannerism when I say this phrase - I did not swim across the Rio Grande.

Not all Spanish speaking people are indistinguishable from a white person. In PR, you have whites, blacks and in between.

Ouch. That hurts. I was taught to be proud of my European and Native ancestry, but, for obvious reasons, not my African one. It was weird that they were hypocrites of their own kind.

Re: Why do some people think all Spanish speaking people are Mexican
What I found interesting growing up in California is the variety of hispanic cultures and versions of the language. Someone from Brazil could be identified by how they speak. It's different then how those in Mexico speak, and those from say El Savador have a different variation as well.

Some would believe the Mexican's version of Spanish is a little more polluted (more of a combination of varieties)then say those in Argentina.

What's even more facinating is how easy it is to understand Italian if you know the more unpolluted version of Spanish.

Because Mexicans don't have the common courtesy to speak english in everyday business dealings. I knew lots of guys in the military who spoke perfect english on duty and off, only when they were around their friends would the switch back spanish.

There are many variations of the language. I find it easier to understand a Sicilian than a mainland Italian. I found it easier to understand because I also know a bit of French.

There's also a lot of racism w/in the different cultures too. Most Puerto Ricans are more European looking or African looking than Indian looking, so we get together with who we look the most like. I look like I'm from India or Peru. Go figure.
