Benefits Of Minority Status A Draw For Many Immigrants

I wonder if Spanish speaking people claimed minority status in their countries and Islands of origin, when they or their families lived there? The Spanish speaking people from Mexico, Central America, South America who come to America, did they also claim minority status in the countries they left?

Did current black African immigrants claim minority status in the African countries they left to come to America?

Do the Arabs and Muslims coming to America claim minority status in the countries they left?

I wonder if Asians like being called yellow people by Hispanics. I wouldn’t think so.

Do native Indians like being called red people by Hispanics?

Just today, Russell Contreras an Associated Press race and ethnicity writer referred to people by color category as if everyone does it. Africans demanded to be called black. Hispanics demanded to be called brown. I don’t think anybody else demanded to be called a color.

It appears that the people who come to America en masse, do so because in their own countries they didn’t have the benefits of minority status.

I’m pretty sure that Asians who collect social benefits in America get deported. I never saw them protest being treated differently than the other color peoples who demanded to be called a color.

AMBER RENE GUYGER IS INNOCENT of premeditated murder – WHY?

RE: AMBER RENE GUYGER

THE SPANISH have this thing about opening other people’s doors. I live in a building with lots of Hispanics – some speak English, some don’t, some pretend not to. There’s a unit next to mine that the leasing office always fills with Hispanics when the previous tenants move out. And they all know each other. Not just the ones who live here, but the new ones coming in. It’s like a network of people with a common cause.

Invariably, when new tenants arrive they try to enter my unit. Again, and again and again. Not with a key, but by shaking the door knob till I go out and they always act the same way. In a rudimentary sign language with arms flailing and laughing noises and head slapping I get the impression that they did it by mistake. But so often? It’s not a simple twist of the knob and ops, that’s not my door action; it’s an aggressive let me in, who locked the door on me type of action.

Other times as someone walks by, they lean over and twist and shake the knob, just to see if it’s open. Sometimes they bring a bunch of friends, collect outside, shake the knob till I open it, then start laughing and pointing and shaking their heads as if I know what they’re saying. It’s like my Hispanic neighbor wants to show her friends? family? guests? my face? We finally got a security system, since they didn’t speak English and there was no way for us to know what their intentions were.

I believe that Amber Rene Guyger got off at the wrong floor and went into an apartment she thought was hers. She made a huge cultural blunder/mistake by not respecting boundaries. To the Spanish mind they shouldn’t exist. It’s part of their culture and their mindset. They don’t get the line drawn by somebody else’s personal space. They don’t see the line, even when there’s a door.

If not for my experience with Spanish speaking people trying to open my door, repeatedly, over years, I probably would have thought that her shooting a huge body mass approaching her in somebody else’s apartment late at night had sinister roots.

If anything should be on trial here it’s the Spanish/Hispanic culture – a clean up your culture moment for sure. Somebody is dead who should be alive.

However, given that she listed herself as ‘white’ on her police identification card, she is now going to have to address her Spanish roots. A few Spanish news outlets ran this story, which indicates to me, besides her appearance and cultural behavior, that she is indeed of Spanish ancestry, which explains the cultural behavior of opening doors because they’re there, or because they mistook the door for theirs.

I do not believe for a second that the incident right down to the opening of the door was premeditated. It was instinctual.

I’ve seen it – over and over and over and over again. The people are always, in every instance, Hispanic.
