Where's any of the hispanic rights groups? How many hispanic kids were in their group? Or is it just a black thing? These people call racism at every opportunity.
Hmmm What people would you be speaking of when you say "these people"?

In reality, I have respect for anyone who gives me and other humans the same. It's a give and take situation on both sides. I have great derision for those who feel superiority over others based on skin color, ethnicity, gender, language, etc. I find them to be a scourge upon ANY society, and I let them know it.

I agree with you 100%! I too have been accused of not being respectful to others. I say respect is earned and not given. If someone can't respect me and they can say rude and crude things at or toward me then I can dish it out too. Continue to due you!

Don't lower yourself to someone else's standards. People who do and say these kinds of things are waiting for a reaction - that's what they get off on. Don't give them the satisfaction. They're ignorant, don't stoop to their low level. In the end, you might just end up teaching them something about dignity and self respect.
