Just shut up, you don't know what you're talking about. If you read you'd realize there were migrations in and out of the areas now USA, Canada, and Mexico and different groups had regular contacts with each other. You probably don't know the "Aztecs" had regular trade with natives as far south in Central America to north in the American southwest. Or that the Navajo and Apache actually migrated from the areas now called Alaska and Canada ~1000 years ago, and the languages between groups there are still somewhat intelligible. Or Arawak-Taino connection. Native Americans aren't Asian, never came from Asia, and have nothing in common with Asians today. Natives today consider Natives everywhere their brothers and sisters, unlike Europeans today who still can't quite get along after hundreds of years together.  (Oct 6, 2010 | post #1648)

Oh I can, since I am native American myself with ancestry from both sides of the border. I've done my homework, too. Its just not worth my effort. But for starters, you can try looking into the history and cultures of various tribes before spouting BS again. Oh, we're each unique alright, but if you think modern borders separated groups hundreds of thousands of years ago, think again. There are tribes like the Ojibwe or Sonoran Apache who have traditionally lived in the ares between USA-Mexico or USA-Canada for thousands of years. People like yourself only reinforce the stereotype of ignorant, arrogant Americans.  (Oct 6, 2010 | post #1647)

"Native Americans north of the Rio Grande river kept Mexican natives out of their territory, which is one of the reasons there is no archeological evidence that Mexicans ever lived here as tribes. Southwestern tribes were effective barriers to Mexican natives. The deserts were deterants to farming, as well. The country of Mexico later placed a bounty on those border tribes and paid lots of money for their scalps or captives to enslave because they wanted to keep border natives out of Mexico." "The two didn't mix in culture or language." "If any tribe migrated and took over territory, it was because they won the war." Okay, I'm just going to respond here with the age old quote "ignorance is bliss". Ya'll have a nice day.  (Oct 5, 2010 | post #1633)

And I'm tired of schooling idiots who have never been to Mexico but still speak out of their ass like they were experts. There are some 14 million known indigenous people living in Mexico today, but the exact numbers are hard to measure since there are indigena who assimilate into the mestizo society to move up. Indigenous Mexicans make up 30% of the population, and mestizos make up some 60-70% according to most figures. Either way you look at it, there's a ton of indigenous blood there. A lot more than anything else. They are native Americans, just referred to as "indigena ", like most Latin American countries. Just like they're "first nation people" in Canada and "aborigines " in Australia. A lot of them know which tribes they come from, have their own language, and beliefs. Believe it or not, but after Peru, Mexico has the largest native population in Latin America. This post will probably be ignored, but it never hurts to try.  (Sep 8, 2010 | post #1612)

why there are so many latinas marrying white men?

A lot of these white guys marrying Latinas are the same sick people who have fetishes with Asian and native American women. I see them all the time, pretending to be "interested " in a particular ethnic culture to impress and marry an exotic young woman. They go for mail order brides, too. The way they view our women, as exotic, submissive, sex toys. Disgusting. The ones bashing Latinas, especially Mexicanas, are the ones who probably got rejected.  (Sep 8, 2010 | post #517)

Its so stupid because a lot of these illegals are native Americans who speak NO SPANISH and NO ENGLISH, yet are labeled as Hispanic by the US government. Would you label a Comanche, Navajo, or a Sioux as an Anglo simply because they're from the US?  (Sep 7, 2010 | post #1611)

Hispanics and latins are from Europe. Mexicans and south...

What difference is this debate even going to make? People are still going to call people from Latin America Latinos (even if Spaniards, Portuguese, Italians, etc don't like it). People are still going to call people from the US Americans (even if Latin Americans don't like it). Just learn to live with it because its not going away.  (Aug 20, 2010 | post #136)
