You mean rednecks and with tight ass gay Wraglers. Salinas was nice visually but no the folks. Basically, Salinas has always been a shit hole ever since.

Mijo, some of us work hard but not work smart. You think we are the only one who can pick lettuce? You don't think people from another 3rd world countries would love to make 8.00 an hour picking vegetables,fruits,etc. Don't you know that before us Mexicans, the Flippinos, Chinese and the Japanese worked the Salinas Valley farms. I am sure if we would gather some people form Indonesia, Africa, South America, etc they would be grateful to work the fields. I think sometimes we bitch toooo much. However, there is no excuse for the some White folks stating all Mexicans are gang members or on Welfare. I know many White folks that are really nice, though I have to say some of them are hustlers and know how to manipulate people VERY GOOD. They just do it in an intellectual way, which is more dangerous. Right, we are hard working? So, hard working also means to do things the right way, not cutting corners.Best wishes, and learn how to spell too.

I never heard of rednecks doing drive bys and shooting up other rednecks. I never heard of rednecks in Salinas defacing their town and making it look like a sh!t hole by tagging stupid gang affiliations.

and you're the one bringing up the tight ass gay Wraglers... maybe that because you like it... now do they wear that shirt with the Virgin on the back?

I like you're comment and I agree. We all need to get away from that stigma that all Mexicans/Latinos do is pick produce. It's funny how Mexican activists proclaim that Hispanics are more than just field workers but them cry when challenged and then say "who's going to pick your lettuce.

Sorry to hear about your cousin...

but you're right not all Mexicans are gang members, but you and I know the reality whether you like it or not. We are our own worst enemy, we generate the stereotype and always keep enforcing it. Until we stray away the bad lime light, we'll always be labeled.

As Mexicans we do work hard to support our families and kids and like u said not all Mexicans bang u know wat I mean like me I don't bang but like always people judge a book by the cover
Most "white" people do judge Mexicans so wat let them talk smack bout us if u r proud to be Mexican u would just ignore them let them hate
Hate is another word for jeoulous so technically they r jeoulous of us(Mexicans) SO LET THEM HATE HATERS ARE JUST JEALOUS!!:)

Yet the face of Salinas shows that Hispanic hang members. I'm Mexican myself and I know how it is, I see it first hand.

George Lopez started his career telling it like it is with Mexicans and all the stuff was funny because it was true. So stop pretending like you don't know.

Mexicans shine a bad light on themselves, they generate the stereotype, and yes it sucks because there are many Mexicans that are great people, respect others, work hard, don't leach off the government, don't have a Sh!t load of children they can't afford to raise and expects thr school system to raise them for them, don't let their kids gang bang, but it's the majority that give the few good a bad name.
