    I live 30 miles south of San Antonio, Tx. A mere two hour drive will put you in Mexico from my house. My family’s entire next generation at this point is half hispanic (some have legal baby daddy some not) None of the young hispanic males that made babies are supporting them. There are blonde haired blue eyed kids here who check the “hispanic” box as they self identify as hispanic due to their heritage. They are a majority minority here, have their own Chamber of Commerce and special interest groups. I speak more spanish than many of my hispanic friends… The younger generations here are prone to claim they don’t speak spanish – it is a status thing. Culturally there are some very interesting things I have observed over the years that lead to my conclusions as to why they are not doing so well as a group. I was watching about 70 kids playing a made up ball game in the gym one day. It was disorganized and loud, but what was interesting was when one of the white males had the ball, he actually had the opportunity to shoot at the goal – but when a hispanic male had the ball – even his own team/class mates would jump in trying to steal the ball from him. It was just an observation. Then in my daughters class there are way more hispanic kids than white kids. In the run up to student council elections there were two candidates who campaigned. A white boy and a hispanic boy. The hispanic boy was very smart and a high achiever – he made buttons and great posters. At the last minute the principal talked another white male into running – he walked into the class on election day, said he was running and bam – the two white males were elected by popular vote. I was pretty disappointed for Jesus… So at lunch I casually asked my daughter and a few of her friends who they voted for – they said Jesus. I asked them why he didn’t win and they said it was because the hispanic kids don’t like him – because he is smart. I asked why they voted for him and they said because Jake came in at the last minute and didn’t even have a speech. Jesus is very dark and has features that are more like the indigent native populations than the ruling class… I know – very antecdotal, but then I had a hispanic friend tell me – this story – he said if you put 10 white guys down a well, they will form a human ladder and climb out – helping each other along the way. If you put 10 “mexicans” (what they call themselves here) in that same well, every time one of them gets a leg up the others will pull him back down. Everyone here has hispanic family members by marriage or birth. I dont’ see the old slave owner mentality as holding them back – they hold each other back.

    Also, they teach the hispanics english in school, but there are very few programs that will teach kids spanish (emersion classes) from primary on. The one class in our area has a huge wait list with all the higher socioeconomic earners tryng to get their kid in that class. Almost every job around here worth having comes with a “bilingual a plus” which is sometimes code for “whitey don’t even apply” The majority of our teachers are white – At almost every parent meeting or volunteer situation I go to – I look around the room and it is the same group of people. Every extra-curricular activity the numbers are completely reversed – they will be about 80% white/20% hispanic but our population is the inverse. We dont’ really have any other cultures here, my husband is the only Arab in the area.

    I’ve been to the Vatican. They’ve lost market share, sure, but they seem to have invested wisely from the good times. Being an atheist at the Vatican is a slightly stomach churning experience. Felt the same way when I went to the Mormon temple in Salt Lake City. The unmitigated gall of these parasites! One weeps for the resources wasted to feather the nests of these frauds.

    Living so near to Akron, I’m right at the crossing of Ernest Angley and Rex Humbard (Sr & Jr). Ernest’s current Grace Cathedral in Cuyahoga Falls, OH used to be Rex, Sr’s Cathedral of Tomorrow. We won’t even talk about the other assorted Mega-Churches in Akron-Canton metroplex. Talk about the buckle of the bible belt. To see the bucks these folks rake in, buying TV stations and polluting the airwaves with their filth. I must admit that it’s hard to take.

    When I was a kid I used to think the Ernest Angley “catchers” shouldn’t be picking the pockets, slipping their watches off, and stealing their jewelry of those people Ernest would smack on the head.
