Why would anybody go there. This is a disgrace naming a place Almo runned by Mexicans. If u know your History Mexicans killed Americans.
Actually you're mistaken. In 1836 Texas was NOT part of the United States. Texas did not join the United States until 1845.

In 1836, Texas was part of Mexico. Americans had began immigrating to "Coahuila y Tejas" as it was known then. It became such a problem that the Mexican government had to close the border.

When it got to the point that the Mexicans had to tell the immigrants to leave, they revolted and declared Coahuila y Tejas "The Republic of Texas."

Of course as any country would do, Mexico sent its military to take it back. The Battle of the Alamo was part of the Texas Revolution, but it was not an attack on the United States. Those living in The Republic of Texas were not Americans. They were Texans, and not Texans as we know them today. They had declared their own country.

So really, the Battle of the Alamo was a successful attempt by the Mexican government to take back land that rightfully belonged to them.

The worm turned at the Battle of San Jacinto in which Sam Houston defeated Santa Anna decisively. With his surrender, Texas had claimed it's independence.

There continued to be skirmishes along the Texas/Mexico border and complete hostilities did not cease until after the Mexican-American War of 1846 when Texas agreed to be annexed as a state.

However, with all that said, I really doubt that the owners had some dubious plan when they named their restaurant. I really don't think anyone still holds grudges over something that happened 177 years ago. Since the restaurant sells Tex-Mex food, The Alamo is a representation of that area of the country.

Microcosmic Man merely takes issue because he is an admitted racist, so part of his mindset is to see offense when none is given.

"If you look at what [African-Americas] bring to the table, generally speaking, I must ask what is their "best of?" For an [African-American], it's a blessing to have white genes; but not exactly so vice versa."

If that's not the belief that one race is superior to another, then I don't know what is.

I'm not eating there because of the name, I'm not eating there because it is a dump, full of drunks.

Well you're within your rights to do that. You can always go out to Eddie Montgomery's Steakhouse for a better atmosphere....

Please,'disabled' one, show me the post where I admit to being a racist. BTW, since liberals are usually at odds with nature itself, I would say your perception of the Alamo is just as backassward.

I just did that in post #44.

And I would say that you lack an understanding of American history.

Here's another gem from you: http://www.topix.com/forum/world/australia/TT...

In fact, it seems that anywhere the subject of racial diversity or multiculturalism is discussed, there you are espousing the superiority of the white race. Why is that?

The guys that run that place are mostly family and are all good guys, in my experience. Everybody is reading way too far into the name of the restaurant.

So, telling the truth makes people racist, eh? If you haven't noticed, homegeny naturally happens (worldwide) when people belong to the same racial group. I assure you, it's quite normal for members of one race not to appreciate certain qualities from members of another race. But it's not a 'superiority' issue as you would like to paint it with your tiny wittle brush. The only thing I don't like about black culture is that they seem predisposed towards physical violence. But what I like about black people is that they make great athletes.

Actually, no, you didn't. And what part of American history am I lacking in?

Take your blinders off, moocher. If you read what I post you will know why I am concerned about my people. You would allow your own race/culture/heritage to be destroyed in the name of political correctness, so you pretty much need to be saved from yourself.

Please proceed. You're doing an excellent job of making my point for me.

Here's another little diamond in which you view the Mexican-American War as a "race war" rather than territorial dispute.

Dude, everyone knows your schtick. You've been exposed so many times on Topix that even your avatar hung itself, lol. Now, show me the post where I allegedly said I was a racist. If you can't, you are what is known as a "liar."

Yes. I blatantly say mean things when you say mean things to me. But after I'm done, I always send a box of chocolates.:-)
