Oye bro, si te ayuda, el cabron ese (PRJester) me rompio la cobija/sabana en frente de los racistas esos en el Immigration Reform Forum. Lo hizo en el foro "Mexico's take over of CA:complete by 2014". El post es #1891.
Yo respondi asi por cuestion de mi primo que es veterano de la guerra de Vietnam y se esta quedando conmigo un pal de dias. Es como te indique, yo le juego los dos lados o cualquier informacione para sacarle lo hipocrita. Ese cabron no tiene derecho de hacer eso, especialmente en frente de esos racistas que son como el pero con mucho menos inteligencia.
El podia esperar hasta que llegabamos al PR Forum, pero no lo hizo. Tambien, cuando yo regresse hace poco para postar (hacia mucho tiempo que no participaba en el PR Forum, trato el pendejo de empezar conmigo.
Hey kid, you are cowardly looking to discredit someone that called you on a lie…

PRJester is just another poster with opinions, just like you and me. I can understand that you did not feel good about a “comment”, but, desperately looking for support, attempting to persuade others into disgust, and making up “facts” is not only immature but also pusillanimously.

There is a big difference between I own a car v. My cousin owns a car (ask your father). For some reason he knew you were “bluffing” and called you… The rest is you having a tantrum…

PS. Choosing a preference does not automatically mean enemy… I dream of Independence, others dreams of Statehood…

All racist, no matter who they are, must all die and sent to hell. For anyone that hates another human being, just because of the color of their skin, is not all human, but a make up of a wild uncivilized animal at heart....
Yes a few in America are racist uncicilized animals at heart and they should to be put out into the wilderness far away from all civilized society of America and be fed like all wild animals are fed.

You don't know the history of this. i explained to you as I did to others my incognito status relating to my pen name. There are sometimes more than one user. All are family.

This joker just got finished calling me out outside of the arena of TOPIX. Don't you think that's a little extreme for what he perceives as a "lie" and isn't? This is a knit picker of the first kind. It serves his agenda of the "mob lynch" he can't get in the real life.

Go to the thread on "Puerto Ricans debate statehood" and see for yourself. This chump has some issues. I'm more than willing, "cause I'm crazy. I'm real crazy.

Anyone can be racist. What distinguishes them is status. Some are disenfranchised and others aren't.

Listen sergeant, we've had some great messaging and I honestly do have some real respect for your well learned attitude, but you're missing the history as well as the point here.

To be clearer, this guy (PRJester) called me and my cousin out on the Immigration Reform Forum in front of his racist brethren. I mean, the action speaks louder than the words. Is this guy retarded or what? If you had the gestalt on this you'd see it as clear as day.

What's it with this guy getting on a soapbox with megaphone calling me out at a KKK rally? What difference would it be in a different scenario? Do you get the gist of my analogy? The action is worse than the epithet straight to your face, which he seems to have under careful control. I'm sorry dude, but given the history and the outright indifference of this guy, you can't convince me otherwise.

Call me immature, pusillanimous or whatever, but the truth is the truth. Integrity in it's purest form is seldom attained. My fight with this character is exactly that, integrity and even more.., Boricua! I won't back down. I love my people to death. Remember that.

For a so-called African-American, you are a condescending racist opportunist, like Al Sharpton. You have some sort of fetish for Puerto Ricans, otherwise you wouldn't be on this forum wasting space. "Banana boat back to the island"? There is a one way "banana boat" back to Africa waiting for you.
GOOD POST.

When you mean "they" are you referring to Puerto Ricans? If yes, well New York's Puerto Ricans (or newyoricans) are very different from those native from Chicago, Orlando, New Jersey, Hawaii, New England, etc.
They (Americans of Puerto Rican descent) are impacted (as anyone) by the state of origin.
We are not (the four million there and our four million in the island) the same everywhere, regardless if we carry (as in my family) the same family name, DNA, etc.
My New York cousins, second and third generation New Yorkers, are all professionals, speak impeccable English for my aunt (their mother and grandmother) taught and made sure that they took Spanish at school. I was pleasantly surprised, this past Xmas to meet two of my cousin's kids, one of them going to college to become a teacher, and her Spanish (well, let's just say) she spoke it better than many island born Puerto Ricans, for it was school learned.

Why must you disrespect people, just because their
opinions differ from yours.....

You hated me years ago and PRJester came to my defense and since then you have tried to discredit
anything and everything he believes in.....
as you should be respected....for your ideals. ISA

Leave those poor Mexicans alone, give them a f_cking break. Y dale con los mejicanos.
I was born in Santurce, live in Río Piedras, went to college here in P. Rico, Europe, New England and in the South.
No, I am not Mexican but wish I were. I love that country and its people, it is a beautiful culture, a proud people who just want what everone else wants, to live in peace and be happy.

Méjico es Méjico (period).

I was brought up in Central America, and for us (me included) in Central America, Méjico is almost next to God.

I would dare say, the best couple of years of my life.

I was 14 when my family moved to Tegucigalpa, Honduras (and I still feel for that country).

I follow Honduras' fate (and feel it) as if it were my own country.

That's what prejudice, bigotry and bullying does to a person's ego.

The same happened to me (up until my 17th birthday) with my sexual orientation.

You are right.I was made fun of day in and day out because of my background.It felt horrible being called
ugly names.I would get in to fights at school.I had to defend myself from all that.I was not going to take sh** from no one.

I fought and fought until I gained their respect.Then from then on
that is when I developed a hatred towards Mexicans.I have always loved and appreciated my Puerto Rican side,but hated the Mexican half.
