Self masturbating, Gracie? Is there any other kind? And if you haven't something productive to say, just run along and chase your cat down the street. This is a place for grown-ups, not brats behaving badly.

Economical status:
This is probably the most common reason Mexicans use to discriminate each other. The "high class" really looks down on the poor, and treats them as scum because they believe they're the reason why Mexico is viewed as a third world country. They blame the poor for breeding children without being able to afford them, for not knowing how to speak right, and for not knowing how to dress right. Many high class Mexicans call these people "Nacos" (nuh-coes), which is the equivalent for the term American term "white trash". However, many poor Mexicans call their high class counter parts "fresas" (fray-suhs), which is a term used on (a "fresa") a stuck up, arrogant, and snobbishly conceited person who thinks that their money can buy anything.
Regions:
Many Mexicans also discriminate each other based on the region of Mexico you were born in. People from Mexico City are called "chilangos" and they are known for being thieves. White people in general believe that all Mexicans with no exception are thieves, but a Mexican will say that all Mexican thieves are "chilangos". When a Mexican from any other part of the country meets a chilango, it's common that he will yell out as a joke "Watch your wallets!” People from Guadalajara, or actually the entire state of Jalisco, have also a bad reputation. It's said that Jalisco is a state where the real Mexican macho men are born, but behind closed doors, their "feminine" side comes out. It is believed that Guadalajara is infested with gay people (homosexuals). It's said that Guadalajara could well be the sister city of San Francisco, CA. There's even a Mexican joke that goes:
-Why are people from Jalisco always buried with their boots on?
-So the dirt won't ruin their pedicure. It is also said that if queers could grow wings and flew, the sun would never shine in Guadalajara.
Soccer (or futbol, as they call it):
Everyone knows that soccer is not a sport in Mexico, IT'S A F**** RELIGION. The two biggest rivals in the Mexican league are the Chivas of Guadalajara (yes, the gay city), and the Club America (from Mexico City, the land of the crooks). Although Club America is the most loved, yet most hated team in the Mexican league for having a reputation of being the most corrupt team in the league by briving referees and fixing games. A Mexican who is a fan of any of these two teams hates their counterpart rivals to death. The mascot of Chivas of Guadalajara is a goat ("cute", isn't it?), while the club America mascot is a golden eagle, so I guess you could imagine how much of a tough time Chivas fans have defending their goat mascot.
Music:
Another reason Mexicans use to rag on each other. While many Mexicans listen to mariachi music, rancheras (Mexican country Music) and "norteñas", which is what white people call "Annoying Mexican Polka", younger generations of Mexicans listen to rock music, or even hip hop, but mostly rock. These younger people call the "Mexican Polka lovers" CHUNTAROS, while the "chuntaros" call their counterparts ROCKEROS MUGROSOS (dirty head-bangers)
Legal Status.
Oh yes, for Mexicans living in the USA, getting a green card is like scoring a home-run, and becoming a US Citizen is like scoring a grand-slam. And once many of them become legal in the US, they look down on their co-nationals who are still illegal. It's sad but that's how it is.
So if one day you feel like bashing on Mexicans but don't have the time, or don't know where to start, don't worry, a Mexican is already doing it for you, and might be doing a better job than you ever could.

Mexicans are too stupid to know what laws are.

(There are good and bad Mexicans. Good Mexicans, disregard this post. You are exempt. Bad Mexicans, you know who you are).

Que paso son las leyes?

Get over to Mexico where there are no laws!

They see and do with like-mindedness. Monkey see, monkey do.

FUCK that, you satan worshipping Mexicans.

You are a detriment to your own heritage and race.

Start acting like Christ, not anti-Christ.

The Spanish continue to distrust Mexico.

Go ask your friend from Europe, he will tell you.

Shame on you. You should never talk like that about your mother. Even if she married her brother, your father. Show some respect.

Is you IQ higher that a beer can?

People who want to expose things for what they are in hopes that it will eventually bring change talk about racism. You are stupid, and narrow-minded...probably a racist person yourself.

When are Mexicans going to learn and stop kissing the white man's ass? They may pretend to like you to your face, but I guarantee you it's an act...they will call you mojado to your back. For many years it has been the white man's agenda to get all minorities to not like one another, and kiss their ass. Instead we should unite and fight the oppressors!
