Was it when you were ripped away from Mexico by an invading white army bent on conquest and land aquisiton?

Was it when Hispanics were suddenly second class citizens having their land taken by laws designed to do exactly that?

(But then again you took all that land from the Native people of much of South America, all of Central America and much of North America. Did that make the robery any more fair? I've always wondered, are the Portuguese considered Hispanic?  They did have half of South America thanks to
Spanish-born Pope Alexander VI .)

Was it when the Government made you wait until 1912 to become "Americans"?

I wonder, before Arizona was admitted did the "citizens" of Arizona  have to have papers to enter the United States? Were they illegal if they didn't?  Finger pointing sucks when it's pointed at you doesn't it?

Didn't we show you enough love?  We force the Native Americans on to small areas of the worst land for you.

We helped to keep Hispanics down with Federal Discriminatory Laws.

When civil rights became the law, it only applied to black people, right?  It didn’t count for any other group, right?

Maybe it is the harsh sun beating down on Anglo brains for so many years.

Maybe it's fear that as you once treated anyone not "white" so will you and your descendants be treated as Northern Europeans become a minority in this country.

Time to use the smelling salts and come to your senses. The more you oppress people the more they will oppress you when the chance comes. The more you work with and bridge divides the less fear you should have. Check world history out, use several sources that aren't on the internet and don't have any ax to grind.  Think instead of react.

It is time for all the little groups that humans divide themselves into to feel they are superior, that they belong to join into one big group. Stop pointing fingers that say it is THEM not US and because it's not us THEY must be bad criminal, lazy, stupid or what ever you tell yourselves to keep your feeling of superiority alive. Hey, it happened to your ancestors, jut getting back some of your own is ok, right? An old saying, “When you point a finger at someone else, there are three pointing back at you."

Calling all humans, time to stand up and be counted.

I have no clue if anyone will read these thoughts, rants, links and information but if you do, let me know what you think.

As to the type size and font, I'm going blind in my old age and I figure if I can't read it you can't either.

My life is mine, if you ask a direct question, except for my social security number, address and phone number, you'll get a very direct answer about pretty much everything and anything it's out in the open.

We have learned, a bit to late in the day, that action springs not from thought but from a readiness for responsibility.....Silenc e in the face of evil is of itself evil.  Not to speak is to speak.  Not to act is to act.
