All we see around here are Mexicans and other non-whites.... can't go anywhere without bunches of them walking around with 5 kids and pregnant..... so tired of them taking our jobs and taking over!!! Seen some 15 yr. old Mexican yesterday in the store very pregnant -- is that all they do???

Holland's crime rate and welfare rate are growing as well. Look at the gang activity there now. That was unheard of 10 years ago. What used to be a nice town has turned into a cesspool. The tulip festival we knew twenty years ago is all but destroyed. Most of these vermin are likey illegals.

Shall we all just get our white sheets out now? If you're worried about "Mexicans" taking your jobs, you need to set your sights a bit higher.

Great. Now Holland is a sanctuary city for illegals, just like GR and Wyoming.

It's of american descent. The americans who bought and built this country. Whites built this. We need to protect it.

Yes, not only that, many of the underage Latino girls are being raped by men over 21 and they arent doing much about it but letting them collect welfare for the baby. Yes, I am tired of seeing them come here with out a nickel in their pocket and 5 years later, 2-3 kids and collecting welfare, health care and rent being paid for. Plus not charged with crimes like drunk driving.

Yes, and if you say anything about them, you'll get in trouble. One person I talked with got in a car accident where the guy was an illegal, the man got in trouble for telling the cop he was mad because the guy that hit him was an illegal.

Holland is one of the few towns in the country that is named after a nationality that is no longer there.

Your ignorance is showing. Actually, Holland (in Europe) is a province in the Netherlands, which is still very much in existence.

Eventually Tulip Time will be completely phased out to make room for a bigger Festival and Cinco de Mayo celebration.

Holland was founded by Dutch but the Dutch are the minority now. I fully expect a petition to change the name of the city within 50 years.

Hey, that's a great idea... I think a new name is in order. How about Whitesupremacytown, MI? Or maybe Jesusfreakville or something. If nothing else, the new name should be a little more accurate than... "Holland"

The name, "Holland" is actually a bit of a joke anyway, since Holland, Michigan has very little in common with her progressive, sophisticated sister in Europe.

Latino's and other minorities as you white people call it... will keep growing.. and the fact is.. soon all you white people will be the minorities and we will have a chance to treat you like crap the way you have treated others. History repeats itself except this time we will take over the country like your criminal ancestors did. So in reality crime started with whites you bunch of criminals!!!

Wow!
once upon a time.........and they all lived happily ever after.
It might be a fairy tale or a pipe dream or shot in the dark - but if everyone where to understand that people are people and we all deserve to live in peace -the world could be a beautiful place. We don't have to celebrate tulips or poinsettias to enjoy our differences. Get over it.

Latinos will never be the majority in this country, they will keep growing in numbers for sure, but they will not be the majority.

I have mixed feelings about this. If they are not illegals and learn to speak english and get jobs and work hard, I have 0 problems with them, they are just like everyone else, trying to make a living to support their family. The people I have problems with are the ones who are lazy and don't work, collect welfare and keep popping out kids, this applies to everyone, no matter what race, white, black, hispanic, if you are doing that I have no respect for you.
