I know a lot of people have Hispanic ancestry but we are Americans, not Mexicans. We don't live in Mexico. So stop celebrating an event that originated in Mexico.

So it's wrong to celebrate your heritage? You should be proud of who you are and where you came from. Don't be ashamed of your ancestry. That's like telling Irish Americans to not celebrate st Patrick's day, or Chinese Americans to not celebrate the Chinese new year, and a plethora of other cultures to not celebrate traditions of their culture. Don't be so close minded.

The celebration has nothing to do with cultural hertiage. Its a masonic holiday. That is why its celebrated. They same reason for Cinco de Mayo. So all you ignorant non-mason hillbillys shut up and do your part to support FreeMason 'Merica!

Most people with a Hispanic last name are not from Mexico. I know my family has been in the US for 5 generations, but we have a Hispanic last name. I choose not to celebrate any 'Mexican' traditions because I'm an American and I don't even have family in Mexico anymore because we have been in the US for hundreds of years. There is nothing glorious about Mexico. They are immoral and corrupt. I'm sure there are good people there but are overshadowed because of a greedy government and drug lords. So why would anyone in the US want to celebrate a country like that. But even if no one agrees with me, I can say this: Pearsall will host any celebration for its citizens to drink and act stupid.
Well

Yeah, YOU don't celebrate it because YOU'RE not Mexican, but are you the only resident in Pearsall? Selfish.

And, what do you celebrate? You must be one of those "Hispanics" whose thinks, "I am much better than those "Mexicans" because we (family) didn't cross the river. It crossed us." It doesn't matter whether you have family in Mexico or not that's where your family originated. Now, I am not judging you because you choose not to celebrate any Mexican traditions. Therefore, you shouldn't judge those who do enjoy celebrating traditions. Not every citizen who attends these celebration drink and act stupid. I for one, have attended many past celebrations and have never had an alcoholic drink. I enjoy attending these celebrations because they bring back memories of when my parents used to take the whole family to these fiestas. I remember the delicious hamburgers and the carnival rides.

Good point & well written. I respect the fact that you don't act stupid at these events. Unfortunately, many 'Mexicans' do.

You are the reason I'm ashamed to call myself a Mexican. You make the race look bad. Thank you for proving my point. Now get some education please, thank you.

Your ignorance amazes me. There is corruption and greed everywhere, not just in Mexico. It's sad you're ashamed of where your family came from. Further, every race, culture, whathaveyou, has people that will "act stupid and drink", not just the Hispanic/Mexican culture. Don't try to change or deny who you are or where your family came from, but embrace it. If it wasn't for your ancestors, from Mexico, you wouldn't be here. Remember that.

It's not ignorance, it's simply my opinion and just because it's different than yours does not give you the right to call me Ignorant. I'm well aware that corruption and greed happens in other countries/races, however, this topic is about a Mexican tradition that is celebrated in an American town. That's why I'm referring to the Mexican culture/people/country. And that's why I call myself an American, because I and most people commenting on here, were born in the USA.
Okay

You are ignorant and arrogant, at that! Sorry to tell you, but you're MEXICAN, and you will always be MEXICAN! There's no changing your blood or ancestry. So have fun not celebrating your heritage. It's pretty damn sad you're ashamed of who you are.

True,however, you were the first one to insult people who choose to celebrate Mexican traditions. Yes, that is your opinion, and you have the right to hold that opinion just as much as people have the right to theirs. You didn't have to insult people to voice your opinion.
