You LOVE Mexican Men? May I ask why?? I mean I can see from your pic that you are not bad looking at all. What is it you like about them? That they all have one or two wives back in Mexico? That they all hit? That they drink like fish? THeir love of cocaine? How they think american women are sluts to try out their exotic sexual perversions on? That they frequently abuse their girlfriend's children? That the only children they care about are their own? Raise your standards, sister. You're settling way way too low.
You said it all my friend. She bashes white men for being pale and pasty and praises Mexicans for their "carmel color" as she phrases it. She's been all over this forum with her filthy mouth and sexual preversions with Mexican men. She used to have a picture of herself and a Mexican man whom she claimed to love Soooo much but she took it down. She probably dumped him for another beaner who abuses children and decapitates people.

Why don't Mexicans have checking accounts?

Because it's too hard to spray paint their name on the signature line.

What do you call four Mexicans sitting around a cesspool with 6 feet straws?

A Mexican Luau.

How do you blacktop a driveway with 6 mexicans?

Slice them real thin.

If you shoot a mexican aim for the head and not the body. Why?

Because when you skin them, they make great wetsuits.

Explain Pizarro with just 168 men, 1 cannon and 27 horses, defeating the largest empire in the Americas. He had no help in defeating the Inca forces.
Just curious what your opinion is there.
OK, before I start answering you, let me just say I never questioned the fierceness, bravery or military accomplishments of
Spaniards. A Greek explorer, Strabo, had this to say about them
in pre-Roman times: "They have the strength of wild animals, together with the same degree of valor and blind fury". Rome found out all about it during the "War of Fire", from 218 B.C. to
19 B.C. In one small town of 8,000 alone, Numancia (written Numantia in English), Rome found not only resistance, but defeat
by the Numantine (Celtiberians) garrison for 20 years of their numerically and technologically superior legions, often outnumbering Spaniards 5 to 1. Numantines defeated Roman legions and their elephants, catapulst, ballistas, etc. year after year. The term "guerrilla" is of Spanish origin and means a "small war".
The first and most humiliating of defeats came in August 23, 153 b.c., when a legion of 20,000 men was defeated by the Numantines and made to sign a peace treaty. That's the origin of the word
"disaster". It comes from Dies Ater (Dark Day). Eventually, though, the Romans were able to overcome through deception, starving Spanish cities by besieging them rather than openly fighting their warriors, etc. There are many books documenting this, but one of the most popular series is the illustrated one
in the series "Osprey Men-at-Arms". You can find this info at
"Rome's Enemies (4): Spanish Armies 218 BC -19 BC", by Rafael
Trevino and Angus McBride, Osprey Publishing, London, 1986, ISBN
0-85045-701-7. Spain also provided considerable number of mercenaries to Carthage during her war with Rome, especially the crossing of the Alps with Hannibal Barca and the sacking of Rome.
Spain went on to give Rome 2 or her best 5 emperors (Trajan and Hadrian) and MOST of the best writers of Rome's golden age, including Lucan, Martial, Seneca the elder and the younger, etc.

OK, Pizarro and his men, factors behind Inca empire's defeat? When Pizarro got there, the Incas were involved in a HUGE civil war between Huascar & Atahualpa, THERE WAS support by Native (South) American aborigenes against the Incas, and the Incas and other South American tribes had MYTHS/RELIGIOUS BELIEFS similar to the returning Quetzalcoatl of the Aztecs, except the Incas called their returning bearded White "god" Viracocha, add to that weapons and tactics and ta-da, repeat of the Aztec defeat. Although, Machu Pichu was never found or defeated, the only difference with the Aztec campaign.

PS "Numancia" is the Epic film that Mel Gibson should have tried FIRST in order to rehabilitate his image. His reach in trying to put out "Maccabees" is just too much of a stretch and might meeet with a lot of viewing public resistance. Success at the box office, in particular by lots of Hispanic movie-goers, would then have paved the way for "Maccabees".

I said it before I'm a Caucasian Muslim. Race comes first, religion to me is like belonging to a political party. Today I can be a republican, tomorrow a democrat. By the way, I speak 5 languages. You smarter than me, no way Hose (is your boyfriend's name Hose?).

Actually I have nothing against classy non racist white men. I just have a preference and desire for hispanic men. We are all people regardless of color. Whats wrong with me dating another person just because they arent the same color as me?
