Time to RE-Pay debt to Mexico
16 Dec 2003
American can begin with California and Arizona.
America owes Mexico more than mere social security checks. America owes Mexico a debt over the genocidal military campaigns that stole California, Arizona, New Mexico, Colorado, Utah, and Nevada from the Indigenous Mexican people.

Americans must be forcibly removed from these Mexican territories. Until America gives up these occupied Mexican territories. America should pay every Mexican and Mexican American a rental fee of no less than $5.00 per square foot.

Mexico is a proud nation filled with articulate creative decent people. But should America fail to return these lands to the Mexican People whereever they may live. Mexicans can become angry too. The average white American does not have the stomach for 12 hours of labor in an onion field because they are geneticaly weaker than Mexicans. Should conflict erupt Mexicans will conquer white America with ease.

Mexicans as a rule do not recognize native Americans as a seperate racial group. Mexicans are Native Americans.

Anyone with a High School education knows our forefathers stold most of the western states from Mexico.
If we reimburse Mexico?...Do we pay back the Indians?...The slaves?...And God knows, who else?

It goes to show that America still has white supremacist who believe everybody is inferior. Those who responded with a negative response obviously are racist because a little article like this ignited their beliefs. Our country has always been an intruder to all the nations of this world, wether it is by force or not we took and did things to people taht we all know should have not done we must put our differences aside and unite the races. If we deport illegal immigrants we must start with the first one Christopher Columbus. Why should we look down on peole who come to this country to escape the oprression, the inequalities, and so forth we must help them adapt like the Indians did with us why is is any different from today point of view?? They are crucial to our economic growth immigrants improve and rises the standard of living it is simple economics.

um....weren't the navajo and the pomo and hopi and the pueblo and a thousand other tribes the indigenous people of the southwest? I'm pretty sure Spain stole it from them and wiped out a good portion of the population with imported european disease in their attempt to "christianize the savages".

Mexico only had a claim to the southwestern states because Spain stole the territory from the indians a few decades before Mexican independence. Most of the people in California and Texas at the time- American, Latino and otherwise - didn't have any great attachment to Mexico and Mexico never really excercised much control over those territories. Spanish and Mexican officials were routinely kicked out and indpendence from Mexico was declared on several occasions before the Mexican war by latinos and non-latinos alike.

To say that the current nation of Mexico can lay claim to a territory that it never excercised any political control over and only inherited because of a past history of Spanish genocide and conquest is riddiculous. If anyone has an indigenous claim to that territory it's the southwestern indians that neither Spain, Mexico, nor America ever consulted.

But the fact that the US has established the area as a stable democracy for the past 150 years and built all of its infrastructure makes for a pretty good argument for continued control.

Also we already paid Mexico for it. Payment for the territory was part of the treaty that ended the Mexican-American war. The US beat Mexico fair and square by 19th century standards.

Sorry this has to be so short. Basically, I just wanted to say that I am amazed of your awareness of the facts. Good job. And anywho, you should alert your school about how fucked up NAFTA is and it's trickle effect of poverty corruption and the such the border regio, only rto benefit the pockets of the anglos that harvest them.

Sad thing is, though atleast 70 percent of Mexico is either mestizo or indian nation, most do pretend they are white spaniard. Only a fraction of Mexico is truly spaniard. However, if you read your history, Jill, you'd understand why this phenomenon is true. Thank you
