I didn't have to count. I ust saw.

If you walk into a room full of blacks (lets say twenty,) and there are only two whites. Do you have to count to know that there are more blacks than whites, or can you just see and know?
So you walked into the Library and saw Whites,Blacks and Asians and assumed that your observation was correct. What if five minutes after you left 30 illegal alien Mexicans walked in?

To get a accurate count you need to stay there for a week 12 hours a day and night and then maybe I'll give some credence to your survey

Do you count votes for the Democrat party? lol

Here's the definition of myth:
"a traditional story, esp. one concerning the early history of a people or explaining some natural or social phenomenon, and typically involving supernatural beings or events"
The key here is "a traditional story." Now, does that definition describe anything you wrote in your post?
Let's see if I can help you understand. You say "it's a myth that this country needs more illegal aliens...." For this to be a myth it has to be a traditional story.
I've never heard this "traditional story," have you? I don't think so. So it's not a myth.
You got an "F." Prostitution ring for you!!!!
You're being way too dictionaryist here.

Well, that's exactly what you anti-immigrants are doing.
Passing along false information about immigrants (legal or illegal.)
hey hopped a fence or overstayed a Visa in a country they were visiting the time they were allowed to be here expired and they did not go home or they never had promission to be here.And that's a crime . Is that misinformation ??? You mean like that ????

Here's the scoop on the tea party. It's named after an event that happened in Boston back back in the 1700s.
Some influential people, "The Sons of Liberty," in Boston protested against a tea tax implemented by England.
They dressed up as Indians to hide their identity, boarded the ships holding the tea and threw all the tea overboard.
The political group "The Tea Party" got its name from that event.
Now here's the interesting part. I did a little search for the Boston Tea Party and although I did find some info, I haven't found any (this doesn't mean that's not out there) that says that The Sons of Liberty dressed up as Indians. It seems this part is slowly being removed from US history.
Unfortunately for them, I studied this many, many years ago, back in the 70s. In those years it was still part of US history. The Sons of Liberty disguised themselves as Indians to put the blame on the Indians.
So the modern day political group "The Tea Party" has named itself after a group of people in Boston who didn't dare accept responsibility for what they were going to do. They dressed up as Indians to pass the blame on the natives.
Perhaps the Mexicans can dress as whites and go fight the cartels

Mexicans are sin huevos, they don't have the guts to fight for their country so they come here, ILLEGALLY, and live off our legal citizen's taxes.

Economical status:
This is probably the most common reason Mexicans use to discriminate each other. The "high class" really looks down on the poor, and treats them as scum because they believe they're the reason why Mexico is viewed as a third world country. They blame the poor for breeding children without being able to afford them, for not knowing how to speak right, and for not knowing how to dress right. Many high class Mexicans call these people "Nacos" (nuh-coes), which is the equivalent for the term American term "white trash". However, many poor Mexicans call their high class counter parts "fresas" (fray-suhs), which is a term used on (a "fresa") a stuck up, arrogant, and snobbishly conceited person who thinks that their money can buy anything.
Regions:
Many Mexicans also discriminate each other based on the region of Mexico you were born in. People from Mexico City are called "chilangos" and they are known for being thieves. White people in general believe that all Mexicans with no exception are thieves, but a Mexican will say that all Mexican thieves are "chilangos". When a Mexican from any other part of the country meets a chilango, it's common that he will yell out as a joke "Watch your wallets!” People from Guadalajara, or actually the entire state of Jalisco, have also a bad reputation. It's said that Jalisco is a state where the real Mexican macho men are born, but behind closed doors, their "feminine" side comes out. It is believed that Guadalajara is infested with gay people (homosexuals). It's said that Guadalajara could well be the sister city of San Francisco, CA. There's even a Mexican joke that goes:
-Why are people from Jalisco always buried with their boots on?
-So the dirt won't ruin their pedicure. It is also said that if queers could grow wings and flew, the sun would never shine in Guadalajara.
Soccer (or futbol, as they call it):
Everyone knows that soccer is not a sport in Mexico, IT'S A F**** RELIGION. The two biggest rivals in the Mexican league are the Chivas of Guadalajara (yes, the gay city), and the Club America (from Mexico City, the land of the crooks). Although Club America is the most loved, yet most hated team in the Mexican league for having a reputation of being the most corrupt team in the league by briving referees and fixing games. A Mexican who is a fan of any of these two teams hates their counterpart rivals to death. The mascot of Chivas of Guadalajara is a goat ("cute", isn't it?), while the club America mascot is a golden eagle, so I guess you could imagine how much of a tough time Chivas fans have defending their goat mascot.
Music:
Another reason Mexicans use to rag on each other. While many Mexicans listen to mariachi music, rancheras (Mexican country Music) and "norteñas", which is what white people call "Annoying Mexican Polka", younger generations of Mexicans listen to rock music, or even hip hop, but mostly rock. These younger people call the "Mexican Polka lovers" CHUNTAROS, while the "chuntaros" call their counterparts ROCKEROS MUGROSOS (dirty head-bangers)
Legal Status.
Oh yes, for Mexicans living in the USA, getting a green card is like scoring a home-run, and becoming a US Citizen is like scoring a grand-slam. And once many of them become legal in the US, they look down on their co-nationals who are still illegal. It's sad but that's how it is.
So if one day you feel like bashing on Mexicans but don't have the time, or don't know where to start, don't worry, a Mexican is already doing it for you, and might be doing a better job than you ever could.

You're clueless and ignorant. Research the statistics and you'll find out who's really on Welfare, Sections 8 and other government subsidies.

Albino is not "white" in the common definition of the word. Albino is precisely that, albino.
