Kulturkampf - I had to live in Puerto Rico for 9 months about 15 years back. They are some of the most hateful, racist people I have ever meant and I have traveled around the world many times. I was never so glad to leave that $hithole and it's people. But I did enjoy the Rum, but that was about it.
I still have nightmares about the cats, the cats!!
Besides being hateful, they are lazy.

Ok folks, if you claim Geraldo does not have any credibility, then point it out! Just don't say it and not point it one bullet statement after another.
The first thing is that he legally changed his name from what he was born with. The name his parents gave him was Jerry (Gerald) Rivers. He changed his name way back when so he would be defined as a Hispanic more even though he is a Peurto Rican Jew.

Please this guy is an American and not Latino. You can eat your cake and have it to ways. Your are Latino or American both cultures conflict. Why? Because they want us to speak English and we all speak Spanish. It should be the opposite they should be learning to Speak Spanish not the other way around.
People who are Hispanic and live in America are not American. Unlesss your born in America that maybe you might have a case. But the reality is that our hearts belong to Latin America. When America decides to invade our countries in Latin America are you an American or Latin American?
You Pick.
As for the book he put out I won't even waste my brain nerves in reading it. Why?
Because I don't like the fact that he thinks 9-11 wasn't an inside job. I mean the facts are all out there and any one beyond this point thinks that 9-11 wasn't a caused be America's foreign policies agenda you have to be shitting me. Chuuuch.
And this why people put Latinos and illegals in the same boat. Because of your goofy comments. Who do you think you are to state that Americans should learn Spanish, why? So we can communicate with our landscapers and the guy selling cheese covered corns in the neighborhood? Your heart belongs to Latin America? Yeah sure, that's why you are here. Our country is better than where you were. Whether it be for education reasons, money, or just our way of life, you are here because this is the best country in the world. Talk is cheap, if you love your country, go there.
