I suppose is a bit one and the other. I honestly do not see CNN and for that matter, neither Mexican or any other News program. I don't want to sound pedantic, but I really think that I am beyond that. Seeing news programs would help you to understand how public opinion is formed, but honestly, most of what you see in News programs is an "engeneering" of public opinion, most of the time totally oriented to sell a point of view and not to provide "information" to the public.
I inform myself in the catacombs of Internet. XD

I really don't know. But CNN Mexico has to compete with Mexican Media (e.g. Televisa, TV Azteca) and then also alternative media (e.g. "El Sendero del Peje", etc.). I have always considered the US and Mexican populations as superbly bad "informed". But when you go to the sites of media in Spanish (e.g. EL PAIS) you see more than a fair share of Mexicans participating.
<quoted text>
I think is strange that not many Mexicans participate in forums like this, when a lot of Americans participate? Well, sometimes in the former weeks I have proposed myself never to return here to Topix Mexico Forum. You have to admit that with people like Badtothebone, you have to have an excepcionally thick skin to participate here as a beaner. In fact, as as far as I know Eduardo and I are the only Mexicans that participate currently here. And I guess that our points of view look pretty allien and strange... don't they?
However, this is an American forum for talking about Mexico,...
(but I don't think that, so far, I unproperly add my ingredients to the salat.)
Without pretending to be offensive, I think that is undeniable that generally, Mexicans and American are hardwired very differently. I however think that that should not be reason why we could not cooperate well in the realm of Reality, and I think that current trends point well in that direction.

If you want to see Mexican heritage on display, And Mexican culture on display just look at mexican ghettos like Los Angeles California or any place else they have taken over. A black area and a mexican area are much the same, Other than the spray paint on ever wall and building. They are both a crime ridden ghetto.

Cherokee Village AK sounds like a redneck bumpkin cesspool loaded with piss poor, uneducated white trash and probably massive meth addicts.

The median income for a household in the city was $27,997, and the median income for a family was $29,636. Males had a median income of $22,639 versus $18,571 for females. The per capita income for the city was $17,105. About 9.9% of families and 13.4% of the population were below the poverty line, including 29.2% of those under age 18 and 5.6% of those age 65 or over.

A welfare city in a welfare state.

I sure would rather be in a A welfare city in a welfare state. Than then a sheet hole like Los Angeles California there Bro. Like California isn't a welfare state and even more so Los Angeles. When you talk about Los Angeles you are talking about one big cesspool full of crap like you. Right?

Hey Gomer, please do not let facts kill your moronic argument. Fact people become wealthy, and move to LA. LA as more people than the entire redneck state of AK. More people visit LA in a single year than those visiting AK in 20 yrs or more.

California has the worlds 7th largest economy.

Pyramids & Temples in Teotihuacan, Mexico
Travel Tips
Ocean Malandra, Demand Media

Home to an advanced ancient civilization during the first to the seventh centuries A.D., Teotihuacan was once the largest city in the Americas and the sixth-largest city in the world during the height of its power, according to Saburo Sugiyama of the Arizona State University Department of Anthropology. The ruins of this massive complex, which lies 30 miles outside modern Mexico City, are largely intact and contain ancient monuments such as pyramids and temples.

The Pyramid of the Sun is the third-tallest pyramid in the world, reports Mexperience.com , following Giza in Egypt and the Pyramid of Cholula, which is also in Mexico.

Pyramid of the Moon
Built on a small hill, the Pyramid of the Moon reaches the same height as the Pyramid of the Sun, even though, at 116 feet, it is significantly smaller. The Pyramid of the Moon is located at the northern end of the Avenue of the Dead, and is fronted by the Plaza of the Moon, which contains a dozen platforms and smaller pyramids.

Temple of Quetzalcoatl
Located at the southern end of the Avenue of the Dead -- within a large square known as the Citadella -- the Temple of Quetzalcoatl may have been the residence of the ruler of Teotihuacan. The temple is actually a pyramid that was once covered in elaborate carvings of heads and feathered serpents, which are partially visible on its western side. The Citadella is enclosed by a wall and contains other pyramids and structures that may have served as administrative centers of the city.

The Mexican heritage is very simple.

We Mexicans are proud of what we are, even when there are many that would prefer to be/please gringos in everything.

One example is the bald midget giving classes in Harvard nowadays, after betraying its country in the most monstrous ways. Most of the times, of course, secretly... "en lo oscurito".

But the Mexican people is still very proud and dignified.

Most of the treasons of the midget, and other, could be reversed.

If you'd like to see poor white trash heritage d culture simply visit AK. Currently nobody does. I guess the thought of being around hicks excites no one. Black American culture and music thrive all over the world (I know first hand as I've lived in Asia and So. America). Hick culture has no following outside of the U.S south and the people of that region are globally seen as backwards imbeciles. FACT !

I love Liberals responses when they can't refute the evidence. They immediately change the subject, and if that doesn't work they play the "race" card. They are so predictable.

There are a number of good places to observe Mexican heritage. Start at the welfare office, then go over to the courthouse, then swing by the prison, then hit the maternity ward, then hit the hospital emergency ward and after it gets dark you can cruise down through the barrio where they make it easy to score some dope. But they're a proud people.
