Whenever people can not stick to the basic points
and see the overall picture our state is in, it falls back to words like "hate,racism" = the lamest of arguments
1.why does our area have to look like Mexico?
2. why does Bi-lingual have to mean Spanish?
3. why are babies born to illegals given american citizenship? instead of by law should be a birth notice to take to their country of origin, making the country of origin responsible for their citizens, NOT the US Taxpayer
which would also mean that a lot of the Gangbangers running around, would loose their rights to live here, since they would not fit the immigration rule and might not be citizens at all if one goes back 25 +years of poor book keeping, city leaders that declare
"sanctuary cities" are braking the law.
It's not hate, it's realizing just how much negative influence, double standards, catering to "a group" of people , instead becoming strong
as a community were it incl. ALL people.
The latest idea coming out of Salinas in regards to Gangsters, I don't know about everyone else, but all I can do is shake my head at this insanity
since noone seams to have the balls to actually follow the laws!
All that comes to mind looking at the colorful
storefront, a symbol what is wrong with our state

I hate to break it to you haters of all things Mexican who insist that Monterey adobes were built by the Spanish ... but you're wrong. Nearly all the adobes in Monterey were built by Mexicans during the time that California was a part of Mexico (Spanish rule ended in 1821 and most of the adobes were built in the later 20s and 30s).
Mi Pueblo is moving to Seaside because there are people there who want to buy what they sell. That's called free market capitalism. And if they want to hire bilingual staff because many of their customers are more comfortable speaking Spanish or decorate their building in a way that their customers like, those are business decisions. Do you really think a legal private business that is in compliance with all laws should be prevented by the government from catering to the desires of its customers just because those desires may be displeasing to someone else? What are you, communists?
All shoppers should prove that they are legal before they enter the store. That would be a start in cleaning out the illegals. ICE could have a trailer there to hold up to twenty then off to jail, unload, back to the store for more illegals.

Mexican owned businesses. Got to love it. For those who make the racist remarks: You are pathetic human beings. DO NOT put all Mexicans in a box, please. Stereotyping and looking down upon other ethnic cultures besides your own is simply ignorant. You have no class. I pity you and your hatefull heart.
I love it

I was born in Carmel. Both my parents were born in Mexico. Unfortunatley I am not bilingual. My parents came here to be Americans. I've been to the new store in Seaside. It's very nice. I was looking for the little shopping carts for the kids. I asked a young lady that worked there. She told me she didn't speak english. A young man behind one of the counters didn't speak english either. The article in Wednesday's Hearald states that Perla Rodriguez VP of communications says thatall employes are bilingual. That's a lie!! I tried to call her to let her know. I evidently called the wrong number, but I did reach another Mi Pueblo store. Guess what? The young lady that answered the phone didn't speak a word of english. Imagin that. Guess she doesn't know her emloyees very well.

did everyone read the article in the herald where the spokesperson named Pearl stated that the store will be only making spanish messages in their announcements in the seaside store and those that do not speak spanish should consider going elsewhere...that is racist and horrible to make. so us asians,blacks,whites and other non-spanish speaking customers are not welcomed. see the article and boycott the store..they are racist and the civil rights org. should investigate these racist comments.

i totally agree with
" Bummer! It sucks to be you too.
Wow! the Mexicans are racist, I did not know that.
So the Anglo Saxons descriminated any race possible other than white race over history in the world and in the United States they try to do Ethnic Cleansing by exterminatin the Native Americans, enslave the African Americans, encarcerated the Asians after the late 1840's. Wow. and you are mad because a white person does not appear on a Mexican commercial.... JA JA JA...
Get a job dude.... You most be bored out of your mind to say some stupid stuff like the Mexicans are racist...
Dude any race creates their own ideals and try top survive over the threats from the reste of the world even if isolation is required.
Anyways, sorry man you have been violated and maybe you should take it to the Supreme Court."
IF YOU REALLY DONT LIKE MI PUEBLO DONT SHOP THERE ! AND IF YOU CANT STAND IMMIGRATION? YOU LIVE IN THE WRONG COUNTRY! THE U.S. IS MADE UP OF IMMIGRANTS... MOVE OUT AND BE HAPPY SOMEWHERE ELSE...
OH AND BY THE WAY MI PUEBLO IS OPEN FOR BUSINESS IN SEASIDE, CA.

BET THA BROTHAS ARE ANGRY, THE ONLY CITY WHERE THEY HAVE NUMBERS IN THE COUNTY IS NOW SLOWLY BEING TAKEN OVER BY MEXICANTS, LIKE EVERYTHING ELSE.
INSTEAD OF COMPLAINING ABOUT IT, THE WHITE MAN SHOULD TAKE ACTION. THERE'S A LOT OF WAYS TO DO SO THAT ARE NON-VIOLENT AND LEGAL, BUT THAT WOULDN'T BE "PC" WOULD IT.

To Stan...

It's no "Mi Puablo" it is MI PUEBLO so get it right!!! n u might be right, people who lived in Mexico were running around in the jungle half naked, and no one had invented the wheel yet...bt they were not Mexicans, they were Aztecs, Mayas, Mexicas, and all our ancestors... Not wheels bt they knew how to read the stars, and had a calendar more exact than the one we use now, they got the number 0...amaizing right!!! They had lots of gold, and silver, something you guys in Europe didnt have tht much and stole it from them...
I seriously dont know why you guys get so mad if that store looks like a typical Mexican Building, one we are in the country of freedom, so we all have the right to build it how ever we want to, 2 dont know if all can think but this is CALIFORNIA...this state belonged to Mexico so many years ago, and after all these years THIS IS STILL MEXICO...just take a look all around,,, even white people go to the Mi Pueblo to get the grocery... even white people go to the lil Mexican stores n buy Mexican food, and Mexican products...
Theres something else i wanna say, take a look all around, who does the hard work in here...us Mexicans, i see lots of white guys and girls on the street asking for money...itz unbelievable to see homeless at the age of 20-30yrs old!!!Oh and dont tell me its because theres not jobs cus there are, they can go to the fields, but they dont want to cuz its really hard yet they rather be sitting down on the streets asking for money...and still say Mexican this, Mexicans that... and yeah we come to this country because we need to, now we dont get nothing for free...we work, so we need to get pay so we can all support our families...and its not true we need the Mi Pueblo to use our stamps n WIC dnt knw what, becuase ive been here for over 12yrs n still never got all that n hope never need to do so, and believe me theres lots of White people who do need that type of help...
At the end, Mexicans, Whites, African AMericans we all are the same in a way... but at the end...sorry Stan and SOmething has to change but you both are so ignorant...you all need to first accept your ethnicity and be proud of it...get a life, n b happy, and let the other people do whatever they want with their lives, with their projects, and stop being so ignorants!!! Thank You So Much and you all have a good evening... Gracias:)
