you are ignorant. its a free country and if someone wants to open an international related business then they should be able to. Its not only hispanic businesses being robbed by ignorant people who are a waste of oxygen. If you feel like that then dont ever go eat at a mexican restaurant again. Hispanics will eventually be the primary race of this free country.

No description of the suspects, then all of the information about weapons and clothes???

I bet the victems gave a description such as two white guys or two black guys.

Tell it like it is......don't be so PC. First and most damning description would be the race of the robbers.

The Hispanics have long been targets of armed robberies and home invasions by black thugs. Happens all of the time and is seldom reported. I hope the Hispanics get armed and level the playing field against the thieves. The thugs and wannabees are too lazy to work and steal from hardworking people.

What in the world are you talking about? You can't even write English. And I'm not referring to your spelling. You dont "get" an entrepreneur, you ARE and entrepreneur.

Thugs target anyone they can. What about the recent robberies in the suburbs of Lexington County? Thugs are trouble making people, black, white or other. Thugs are thieves that like to bully people around.

I agree, you all do multiply quite rapidly. But being the primary race is suppose to mean what!? You won't be "RUNNING" anything. I knew that was you people's 'plan' all along. You think if you reproduce enough of you, that you will take over america, and we, who were born and raised here will be forced to adapt YOUR language and YOUR way of life. It will never happen...have as many "babies you want!

Reading this I see that the clerk was order to hand over the cash in the register. Did anyone ask if it was in Spanish or English? What kind of accent? Whoever these people are, they are a danger to anyone. When lives are at stake, don't be so PC that someone suffers.

I just read on another TV station's web site that the perpetrators were also hispanic.(btw, NOT the station most of you are thinking about - but a slightly newer station) Why leave out something like this while trying to get a description out to the public?

For those checking spelling and grammar: yes - "order" should have been "ordered" in my previous post.

Its not about having lots of babies or our plan. Look at the west coast, the southwest, eastern shore(new york down to florida). We are not forcing anyone to adapt to our language or way of life. Its just happening. No one here in america are true americans. Everyone who lives in america either migrated from another country or has family from another country. No disrespect to anyone here. P.S. you will never see a hispanic on the side of the road holding a sign that says ..."will work for food"

. Learn to adapt and learn the language for those who don't. If you love america that much,(which obviously you all do) then it's simple, YOU must adapt to america, its' way of life, customs, and people...and not the other way around. You came HERE,remember?That's all I'm saying. I couldn't believe it when at one point, the good hispanics in Florida attempted to have spanish declared the FIRST language. What NERVE!

Dear Copperlady,

While I might agree with some of what you say --- English should remain the language - and I don't like bilingual signs, I must ask you:

What's it feel like to be a racist?

I'm used to seeing you defending someone or trying to take the race out of something.

I am not for being PC to the point of stupidity, but we all need to be sure that even "in between the lines" we are not spreading racism.

How is it to be racist...hmmmm, not too bad. The money is pretty good, and I get two paid vacations a year. If my saying what I said concerning hispanics adapting to their surroundings makes me a racist, then so be it. That does't make sense to you? It's true. Try moving to Mexico by the thousands, and then try convincing THEM that english should be the native tongue since so many americans are living there now. I can only imagine the look you'd get! And btw, "DEAR", I might be called alot of things, beautiful, intelligent,cool, big money, even sometimes a rump shaker...but NEVER am I stupid! Just keeping it real!

I do believe that THIS was the comment the person was calling "racist". That's the first thing I thought when I read it. If someone talked about blacks "multiplying..."...y ou would be the first to whine. Just an observation.

Not YOU again! Look Cook, don't you have some wash to take in, shirts to mend, and supper to fix, before Pa gets home? And in the line of STILL keeping it real, as a matter of FACT, some BLACK folk DO multiply (SOME ALOT MORE THAN OTHERS)just like hispanics, and NEWS FLASH...even white people. IT'S THE TRUTH, you know it, you probably even commented on as much at some point in your life yourself!. Get Real!
