Default Why do Texans hate Mexicans?

I live in a small town, full of multiculturism, and I get talking to a neighbour, who's Mexican, and we agree on a lot of things, football, wages, lifestyle, food, etc, lol.

Talk to some Texans, and its swear words, racist crap every 3 seconds...I give up on the rednecks, with their poor vocabulary and lack of education.

I feel the Southern US states won't get better until they realize prejudice gets nowhere.

hasta mañana !

There is racism of some sort in all parts of the US. There are also many pockests of tolerance in the South. The South is a large region and until you have traveled it or lived throughout it, do not make such broad generalizations of 80 to 100 million people.

Just drive him down to Mexico, and drop him off. He's not prejudiced, and he'll be amongst friends.

Such a sweeping statement...

A bit like, 'all brits are hooligans'...

I haven't, as yet, heard anyone saying anything remotely bad about mexicans.

I couldn't agree more!!!!

About mexican food and Texas.... mmm.... may have to start cooking some enchiladas.

My guy who does the landscaping and stuff is from Mexico - I'm gonna have to get some authentic recipes out of him - maybe after a few more Coronas....

You know, I have to admit - while of course there are various people with various prejudices (or not) everywhere, having spent some time in Texas and time living in Arizona, I would agree it is a widespread thing to look down on the Mexicans.

Uneducated illegal immigrants play a part I suppose, but it is part of the culture also I believe.

Why? is he as good looking as mine is?

Actually, my guy does more than landscaping - tree work, and some home repairs and such too.

And is my corona drinking buddy lol.
