    Tamales don't leave as much of a grease track on one's face like cheese enchiladas do.

    It's not really a fight. More like a Real Housewives of Miami passive aggressive ganging up on....

    bodyjuice saidThe African American/Black community has always been welcoming , as far as the latino community goes, it can be rather confusing at times since we've been programmed to think that Black is bad...But my Latino brothers and sister need to realise is : If white people could turn us all [ light skinned or dark ] into slaves .....THEY WOULD.....PERIOD

    I agree with this.

    I am genetically Black (African American) and Colombian (Latino) split equally 50/50, and yet I relate very little to either culture because I was not raised around either side of my family. This has allowed me to develop my own personal culture where I make the rules.


    I agree with you-- that are hot stuff. ;3 Fufufu.

    jmusmc85 saidI dunno. That's just my opinion. And you managed to annoy Nico, who is one of the nicest guys on here, so that's not a good sign either....icon_neutral.gif


    No kidding! It takes a lot to bug me. Although I do have my moments, so perhaps that was one of those moments. I was feeling a bit moody at the time because I couldn't sleep icon_confused.gif


    Maybe what you needed was a bit of tongue lashing to help calm you down there? >;3 Fufufufu.

    You always give the best answers relating to my issues, thank you, I'm actually not suprised to hear that about Persian culture I have few Persian friends and they seem just as exclusive and defensive about their culture and offended easily, but it's perfectly fine to talk mess about everyone else which is hilarious and I call them out on it. Yeah I guess the privilege of being a mutt is you can leave the B.S one culture gives where as somebody who 100% something has to put up with t and be forced to like it or be proud of it because they have no other options. so culturally I relate more to my African american heritage vs Mexican, I'm proud to be( hell mostly mexican )because my father isn't even mixed like my mothers he's full blooded, but I'll say half because I'm to detached from the culture, but I love "dia de los muertos" and the food n stuff like that.


    Well I am glad you found my thoughts to fit along with what you were talking about. I'm no Latino or Mexican apologist. I can't speak for why some people do the things they do. I am not even familiar with all the cultural aspects of Latinos but I do believe their culture is very similar to Arabs. We too have a wide array of Arabs who can be very fair skinned to very dark. You cannot really point out and say that there is always just -one- look for Arabs; however, when Gulf Arabs interact with African Arabs which interact with Levantine Arabs, things go to hell. +D The dialect, the accent, the attitudes, and behavior don't especially help the cause either. They will start alienating others, at times. Not always but there are those types which do. I've mostly seen it among Levantine Arabs and Saudis (at times) than any other Arabs.

    Any who. You cannot force a person to accept what you are and how you look like but you can sure as hell cut them out of your life. ;D I think Latinos are generally a very favorable and kind group of people-- or at least they always have been with me. The chicanos are another story as well as the Mexicans who try to act all tough and gangster. Those idiots aside, most of them are really fun to be around with. icon_smile.gif Find the group of Latinos that love to be around you. Ignore the Mexicans who do not. icon_biggrin.gif
