    Race as in white, black, etc.
    NOTE: I'm not being racist, I was just wondering...

    When I went to California to go to disney land, Anahiem has A LOT of Mexican people...probably half of the population. looks like they are mexican.

    In cranbrook, most are white, there are some Indians, and some other types.
    In Surrey (close to Vancouver, where Rene lives) there is a lot of people from india and what not (at least when I went there)

    What about your place?

    In the area, it's about half white and half Hispanic. Mix between Mexican, Guats, and others from third world, Latin American pissholes. Number of blacks would be something like .000000000000???%. There are also a couple of Asians running around.

    Bigger places will have more blacks, and there are some Indians running around up here, but not like other parts of the state.

    In my small town of 3000, about 10% is of Hispanic origin, and again, not being racist, but they all work in a factory in town or at the local tree farm...

    There are 2 black families in my town that I know of, and they rest is mostly white.


    In Milwaukee however, it's still segregated for the most part... White people live in West Allis, Black people live on the north side, and Mexicans live on the east side... Indians, Asians, and people of Arabic origin are mixed in with mostly white people, but you occasionally see asians down in the ghetto with the mexicans...

    Here in North Jersey we have everything under the sun. And even a few that live underground! I used to drive a tow truck. I would get to a call where the customer couldn't speak english at all. How the hell am I supposed to know where to tow the $%@!*& car to?!?! All arguments aside, I am glad I live in a country that allows the freedom to get away from one's oppressed country. I just wish those people respected ours a little more.

    Where I live now, 120K pop. in the county, about 20% Hispanic, 79.9% White and about 27 black people. Of the white people it's about half and half respectable upstanding somewhat rural types with a few big city transplants and the other half is white trash, toothless, meth-head, mullet having, wife beatin' tweakers. (but they are all centrally located in Clifton Single Wide Metropolis so it's easy to stay away from them). Of the hispanics probably 85% are hard working decent folks and the majority of the blacks are college students/athletes (although they dress like thugs).


    The town I grew up in in Texas was 96% hispanic and us few gringos.

    Depends on who you talk to, but it's a general catch all term related to Mexicans and Latin Americans by most.

    There's really no true Mexican because a lot of them have Indian (Aztec and some other Indians that were native to Mexico) and Spanish (Spain) blood in them. Even though we use this term to describe most every one from south of the border, in reality, Mexicans hate Guatamalans and vice versa. It's pretty easy to tell most of them apart because Guats are usually really small framed and not to be harsh, but a lot of them you'd think are Pygmies because they are so small. They also have different facial features. They have more Indian type features also. That's not to say that is true for everyone. When I worked for Fresno County, we had a little hottie Guat nympho that we worked with and she was lighter skinned than most; but she is also the person I got some of the previous insight from. Apparently Guat woman are somewhat liberated and strong willed and most of them hate the **** out of Mexican men because of their mentality towards women.

    And don't think the languages are the same either. Most of the Guats we have locked up are pretty fluent in Spanish and can converse with the Mexicans, but we get a few, like one we have right now, that speaks some off the wall Guat dialect that we don't see too much of up here, so it's kind of hard to give them a "fair" shake with the justice system.

    Mexicans? In So-Cal?! :D

    Yeah, CA has a lot of Mexicans and other people from south of the border. Alot are illegal but many are legal too. I don't have a problem with the race, but some of the cultural norms that they bring with them irritate the hell out of me.

    no I wasn't sheltered, thanks. I ask a lot of questions because I want to learn. If I didn't ask I could just live my life easier, but without the knowledge I have gained. I may ask stupid questions, but like I said, I'd rather get picked on for it and gained the know-what about it, instead of having little knowledge from not knowing. For this peticular thread, were I live there is NO hispanic people (from what I have seen) so how would I know what they are?
