    Jimmy Jordan,
    My husband is Mexican, it's not a bad word. The gentleman I addressed said "As I stated I have seen a lot of articles lately on WRAL about Mexicans being arrested for rape & child molesting." I would challenge him to show this because I think he he's generalizing and assuming a person with a Hispanic last name who has brown skin must be a Mexican. And there we have "'Merica".

    How is that "racist"????? They are Mexican and he said "IF". The truth is now racist. Emotional people lose all logic for some reason. I work with a Mexican and he says he's ummmm a Mexican. The PC crowd is getting a little coocoo.

    Abrams Gunner,

    Yes Lee county has a high Latino population. However, I've never seen an article that identifies a perp as "Mexican", your comment reveals a touch of racism.
    These young men committed a heinous crime. This is the real issue. If they are hear illegally, the media will report it. Until then, you keep your racist comments to yourself and focus on the real issue, the atrocity committed by these young men.

    A. No, not kidding.
    B. There is a high population of Mexican migrants in Lee County. I know, I live there.
    C. IF they are in the country illegally they need deported along with their parents because they are most likely illegal themselves. If they want to be here legally then they need to go through immigration. This is already mandated by law.
    D. As I stated I have seen a lot of articles lately on WRAL about Mexicans being arrested for rape & child molesting.
    E.How am I displaying prejudices? I don't post the articles on WRAL. I simply read them. Noticing a pattern doesn't make me prejudice, it makes me observant.

    Your quick judgement is obviously a failure to comprehend what you have read.
