I'm sorry she lost her job and i get why she's mad but to make it a topix really and I'm sure she will find something better but making a racist comment on topix really it just makes me wonder if I judged all the Americans by her actions smh it would make me think like her

im hispanic and please dont put all mexicans in that category of lazy and filthy. born and raised in the united states :) and i think those coming here illegally should be sent back. make them get those papers the right way! i agree with the spanish speaking ones expecting you to speak it when they see you as one of their own. no i dont speak spanish so dont assume that i would! course, i can see why mexicans would want to come here, they want that better life like everyone else does and they do work very hard, but they need to be here legally!

To clear up a few things first: Yes iam mexican. I was born in the US though. No i dont believe illegals should take our jobs. It also really chaps my ass that they are able to recieve welfare. However most have children and its not their fault. They dont deserve to starve. But for those who do come here legally you cant blame them for stealing jobs. Those warehouses on 111 are full of mexicans and african americans. Whites are a minority there. Most of these jobs are through a temp seevice and most people move on quickly. But some ppl have been tgere for years. Mostly the mexicans. And why? Bc they appreciate their little bitty rate of minimum wage. They are just glad to have work. Most, not all obviously, but most Americans feel they are above working a warehouse job or fastfood job. That us why there are alot of them thereThat sucks u lost your job. I feel for u. But its not a mexicans fault. They have ffffamilies to feed too. And thats all they or anyone cares about. But the next time you or anyone feel like trashing immigrants, remember that unless ur full blooded native american, someone down ur family line was an immigrant otherwise u wouldn't be here either..js

What we need to do is make it so crappy here that the "illegals" don't want to come here. Oh, wait, Obama is already doing that for us... lol

In this day and age,people are desperate,of course no child should go hungry.As you stated"Most have children"well my kids were born here,we are not illegal and I should be able to feed my kids.As for as the comment you made about"Most Americans feel they are above working a warehouse or fastfood job"please tell us all here on topix when you conducted this poll?That is a Racist statement if I ever heard one.

That statement was not racist, and you are right, it is a statistic. In an Ethics course I took a year or so ago, we watched a video on workplace standards and that poll was conducted. We even did one in class and majority ruled that they would only work a job like that if they had no choice. I myself have worked there, for like a week, bc it was so crappy. I had a better in job in like a week. You will too if you put your mind to it. For these poor people coming from a place where the workplace standards are so low, the crap ass warehouse is a come up and they just feel lucky to get a paycheck that does not reflect sweatshop wages. So, no, not racist babe. Just a fact..

And yes, Mari, you should be able to feed your kids. Thats not my point. my point is that its not any one particular races fault. Those warehouses are scandalous. Have you ever read the book "The Grapes of Wrath"? Well if not, the main plot of the story is that a poor family decided to move to California bc they seen a flyer advertising work for 500 people (or some number like that). They get there and find the place flooded with 1000s of ppl. For every 500 workers they needed, they would send out 1500 flyers. Same concept at them warehouses. If they need 200 workers, they have an automated system place phone calls to 400 ppl on their temp list and flood the place. Thus resulting in paying lower wages, no benefits and crappier work conditions. Because there is always someone desperate enough. Thats is the basis for my "racist" comment. It is just a fact.

Before some of you posters complain about people
speaking Spanish, you should learn how to speak
and write English correctly. Good grief! Poor
grammar, using the wrong words (Seen instead of Saw),
bad spelling and mixing in "txt speak" shorthand.
Ugh..Terrible.

Whether some of these posters speak or write English incorrectly is not the point,this is the U.S.AND here our language is English,not SPANISH.Mexicans that come or that are already here,need to learn OUR LANGUAGE NOT US LEARN THEIRS.Do you get the point?

The USA doesnt have an official language. Sorry, but you are wrong. Go down to near the border in Texas, Arizona and New Mexico and there are more Spanish speakers than English. South Florida is the same way.

Just because you desperately want everyone to speak English doesnt mean that is how reality works.
