moved here 4 years ago from painesville, ohio-i graduated high school in 1986-it was half black and half white-now my friends in ohio tell me its 1/4 black,1/4 white, and half mexican(lots of nurseries in that area)-painesville when i was a kid reminds me of what i heard kittanning was like in its heyday...now it's like kittanning another way, a dying town with nothing but drugs...so sad-most of the mexicans in painesville are illegal-they now have an ins center there now...

Are you forgetting about all of the native American gangmembers in the USA?

And you know that the Latin Kings are a native American gang, right?

The Latin Kings are arguably the largest, organized Hispanic street gang in the United States of America. While the Latin Kings first emerged in Chicago in the 1940s in the Puerto Rican community of the north side, and later emerged in Mexican community on the south side. They later grew into one of the largest and most infamous criminal gangs in America. The group's members became involved in crimes including murder, drug trafficking, robberies and other organized criminal activities. They have been the target of inumerable federal investigations, and are reputed to involve members of the illegal immigrant community.

Someone else just did.

They're a Chicago gang. They're most all Chicanos (which means they're born here). And they're almost all white.

The Latin Kings originated in Chicago, but have organized chapters of Latin Kings in over 41 states and several Latin American and European countries, including: Mexico, Spain, Dominican Republic, Canada, Italy, Ecuador, Peru, Puerto Rico, United Kingdom and others. The Latin Kings are mostly of Latino descent, with some Black, Asian and Middle Eastern members as well.

Almost all Chicano and almost all white? Obviously not.

Latino isn't a race. There are Latinos of all races. Ironically enough, Middle Eastern isn't a race either (most Middle Easterners are white).

Facts are facts, jack. Chicanos are Latinos born in the US from Mexican descent. Considering that almost all Mexicans are white, its only natural that almost all Chicanos would be white.

Straight from the Census....

"In the 2008 American Community Survey, 46.8 million Americans (15.4% of the total population) listed themselves as ethnically Hispanic or Latino American. Of those, 62.3%(29.2 million) self-identified as racially white. The remaining respondents listed their race as: Some other race 30.2%, multi-racial 3.9%, Black or African American 1.9%, American Indian and Alaska Native 1.0%, Native Hawaiian or Other Pacific Islander 0.05%, and Asian 0.4%."

Freddy says (in quotes):
"Yeah, thats what I said. They're a native American gang."

And like I said, that was their origins, not the multinational criminal enterprise they are today.

"Latino isn't a race. There are Latinos of all races. Ironically enough, Middle Eastern isn't a race either (most Middle Easterners are white)."

You have a simplistic view of race, like most things. And the US Census Bureau has adapted their concepts of race and ethnicity to the real world. Open your narrow mind a bit, Freddy.

"Facts are facts, jack. Chicanos are Latinos born in the US from Mexican descent."

And many of them of illegal immigrant parents. Like many nations, we need to eliminate citizenship solely based on place of birth, and so eliminate the "anchor baby" motivation of illegal Mexican immigrants, and help stop illegal Mexican immigrantion.

"Straight from the Census....In the 2008 American Community Survey, 46.8 million Americans (15.4% of the total population) listed themselves as ethnically Hispanic or Latino American. Of those, 62.3%(29.2 million) self-identified as racially white."

Read it carefully, Freddy: It says "listed themselves" and "self identified." That does not make it a fact, boy... at least not for rational mind of the better educated than yourself.

You're ridiculous. Even when I point out a fact to you....a fact observed by another person, you're still trying to argue semantics and play it off like you're correct.

No, you're not correct. The Latin Kings, who "do business" in other countries is no more a multinational company that Ford or Microsoft is. You're trying to say they're not an American gang. They are, in every meaning of the word.

If by "simplistic" you mean "realistic" then yes, I have that view on race. Unfortunately, this is reality. Latino is not a race. One need only look at a black Cubano, a white Chilean and an Asian Argentenian to know that a Latino can be of any race. Your view on race is the simplistic and erroneous one.

No, we do not need to do that.

Of course it is a fact. Any rational or educated person would understand this.

The Pickle-putz responds:
"You're ridiculous.",
"No, you're not correct.",
"No, we do not need to do that.", and
"Of course it is a fact. Any rational or educated person would understand this."
Wow... what incredible, unmitigated arrogance! As another once said of Freddy Pickle/aka SunsFanAZ:
He's the "...nattering nabob of negativity, the loathsome troll of Topix, and arrogant arse of the Appalachians... Freddy Pickle, the Pontificating Putz of Pittsburgh!"

Gangs serve no purpose....anyone in a gang should be sent away to a camp for "special treatment," whether male or female. If we gas them all, it would be no big loss!
