Re: “Ask a Mexican | Corn vs. Flour Tortillas Contest Winners

They're both good for different things but it's a little upsetting to see people say they like corn because flour is for "stupid boring white people".

Not sure why you have to bring up race and insult people when you talk about tortillas.

Anyway I just like flour tortillas for quesadillas/burritos and corn for mostly everything else, masa has a nice flavor to go with bean dishes...

Please treat each other with respect

Re: “Why do Mexicans hate Salvadorans?

Man I was born in LA to salvadorean parents and in middle school the majority where chicanos, and they all usto hate salvi and there were only like 3 others in the classroom, I was never really picked on (I like to think it was because I was funny) but I was also one of the tallest kids and for the most part well liked but I usto see all these kids talk shit about salvis and I never understood the hate as a kid and I still don't I always figured it was maybe something that got passed down, I never took any of it personal, most of my best friends are Mexican and we ride or die for each other, I've only had Mexican girlfriends and it usto not bother them at all that I was salvi there parents loved me! I just think it's some childish thing that we all need to grow out of.
I mean I like Mexican food and Mexican woman(I like all women tho) so I can't really hate my Mexican brothas

Re: “Dad Hates Mexican Boyfriend!

I am so tired of hearing about Hispanic men.
To tell EVERYONE who reads this comment...
Hispanic men use American women to obtain legal status.
And 90% American women allow it. Shame on the 90% who allow it.
Hispanic men are only and truly in love with there own kind.
Wake up stupid white women.
And to the Hispanic men leave the white women alone unless you are 100% really in love with them.
Have you ever thought of how moc women sincerely love. Love is not just a word... it is what God blessed all of us with, when one is in love with a Hispanic man it seems to mean NOTHING TO HIM !!!
So the girl with the question why your dad hates your Mexican bf... Wake Up he knows what this guy is going to do to you.
Hispanic men USE WHITE WOMEN !!!

Re: “Why do Mexicans hate Salvadorans?

STOP THE MADNESS!!!..Asking a Mexican if he feels rivalry or inferiority to a Savaorean is like Asking a Japanese or Chinese if he feels inferior to a Vietnamese or Cambodian!

Re: “Why do Mexicans hate Salvadorans?

People that are saying salvadorians are hating are fucking stupid. Im neither, and i have friends from both sides of the border. I myself am a guatemalan. I do see how mexicans always say something rude about salvadorians and for no good reason. I had a mexican friend that said salvis were dirty and nasty but her house was no ideal clean for her to judge. And then salvis blame all mexicans for the ignorant ones. Ive seen clean and dirty from both even guatemalans dont get me wrong. Theres shitty people from different races. But to say its a hate thing is idiotic, its a thing learned from parents with hate or friends that dont realize what they are blabbing about until they realize what race their friend is from. Mexico is the same thing as el salvador and guatemala it has its ugly spots where there is prostitution, drugs, and bad people.

Re: “Why do Mexicans hate Salvadorans?

I grew up in South Central LA. I fought blacks on the way to school because they thought I was Mexican and fought Mexicans because they knew I wasnt. Now I'm married to a Mexican American chick whom I love and my best friend is black. I thank my Salvadoran parents for never teaching me to dislike as a whole and to judge individuals by their character. By the way, my wife's male family members dislike me. But for some reason the females flock my way when we visit. Unspoken tension in the air. I over hear the insults from a distance. Very uncomfortable and odd most times. Maybe it's because I have a six pack and not a bud light Much love to all the cool Mexicans that appreciate "different" as I do.

Re: “Why do Mexicans hate Salvadorans?

I'm Salvadoran American, Born in East Los Angeles and raised in Downtown Los Angeles, growing up I did experience a lot of hate from kids of Mexican descent and well into adulthood with adults as well. However, I also received a lot of love from my Mexican friends who didn't hate on me simply because of my Salvadoran roots, they had my back and I had theirs, yes there's political hatred that has built up between SOME of us, but the reality is that at the end of the day we all eat beans and tortillas. As a proud Salvadoran American, I harbor no hate towards people of Mexican descent. Yes, there are ignorant people on BOTH sides but they are unimportant people who are lowly and should be ignored. I AM NOT A HATER!

Re: “Why do Mexicans hate Salvadorans?

I'm Salvadoran and I used to live in the D.C./ VA area all my life where there is an abundance of Latinos, but especially Salvadorans. There isn't much in terms of Mexicans, and the whole area is diverse anyway (indians, asians, blacks etc) so everyone pretty much are equals.

I just recently moved to Austin, TX where its like almost 50/50 split Whites and Mexicans. This place is crazy when it comes to terms of segregation. There are tons of the ignorant Mexicans here and they tend to keep to themselves in the east side of Austin while all the white people are on the west side. They will make there way to the west to hit up the malls and stuff, but they have this ass-hole personality, which comes across as angry, pissed off, and stupid. They are terrible drivers. I'm pretty sure 90% are illegal.

From my run-ins with the Mexicans here, it doesn't even come close to the Latinos back up DC. These breed of Mexicans are cheats, lowlifes and criminals, and they seem to take pride in this behavior. I grew up with pretty much "white people" values and had a diverse set of firends, I guess you can say, so I'm not deep rooted to Latinos in general, but here, its either your "one of us" or your not.

I tend to do my own thing and hang with whoever is cool, so its not an issue. Problem is I DO look latino, so people mistake me for one of them, so its hard to break away from that stereotype.

Kinda sucks, but eh, what are you gonna do.

Re: “Speak Proper Spanish

Sorry. I meant to say "montacargas," not "trascavadora."

Posted by Ricardo on 02/24/2016 at 10:54 AM

Re: “Speak Proper Spanish

Most "Hispanics" do not understand "register." To expect a worker to use "trascavadora" instead of "forlif" or "estado de cuenta" instead of "steiment" is a fantasy. Also to expect them to "speak in complete sentences to facilitate an accurate interpretation" is also a fantasy because their complete sentences are paragraphs. They are simply from another planet and to hope for their assimilation is wishful thinking.

Re: “Why do Mexicans hate Salvadorans?

The truth is that all this started in the 70's.Thats when salvi's started arriving by the hundreds to the west coast.The mexican gangs punked the new salvi immigrants for a couple years but once salvi's formed their notorious gang MARA SALVATRUCHA all the fun and games were over.The salvi gang began to dismantal mexican barrios and mexican gangs started to feel inferior to the salvi gang.Thats why all this BS started.

Re: “Why do Mexicans hate Salvadorans?

Interesting debate. I want to add my two cents. I think this is more on the west coast. You dont see this as much back east. The "rivalry" has historical, cultural, and sports oriented roots. I am latino and i hate no one. We are all Latinos we should all stand together and not look at our petty differences. Sometimes these things happen where the strong victimise the not so strong. It happens in Asia too. Japan vs Korea, China vs Vietnam and so on. In Latin America its the same. Sadly though. We should all always strive to be better people. Salvadoran--

Re: “Why do Mexicans hate Salvadorans?

Im Latino from El Salvador. I left my country at the age of 3. i moved to the states and then eventually to Canada, where my family settled. throughout my years i have come across this rivalry....but i think its stronger in some regions then other. for example in Los Angeles where there is alot of Gang life and nationalistic pride its more apparent. But my family is very mixed...with mexicans. And here in Canada i find its more of a friendly rivalry. Ive found the Island Latinos, to be more racist towards us. Looking down at us like were indians and what not. I think this kind of discrimination is common amongst all latinos....basically we all think we're better than everyone else. i wanna bring a positive point of view to this all.....Ive slept with almost all the Latinas of the world, meaning from our different cultures and they are all beautiful Cuban women being my favourite......I love Latinos of all races and their cultures....except Colombians lol hahaha God bless us all and our struggle.

Re: “Why do Mexicans hate Salvadorans?

I'm Mexican and my boyfriend is Salvadoran, and two of my brothers are married to Salvadoran women. As I grew up I noticed how much my mom would talk about Salvadorans, my mom doesn't hate them but she highly dislikes them, all of her kids (She has 6; bring on the jokes. 😒) have dated a Salvi excluding my baby sister, my mom still doesn't like them but she gets along with them just fine, this all depends on who you are and where you come from. My mom went through a personal problem and that's where she picked up a dislike for Salvadorans, not all Mexicans hate Salvis.
