Immigrants, including Mexican-Americans, will take over jobs abdicated en masse by other workers. It's inevitable. Why do you think they frequently work the most dangerous, physically demanding jobs?
I'm dead set on exposing you for the hypocritical, dishonest, dirty debater you are. You have a big mountain to climb to prove this one.
I already did explain it, learn to read.
Her claim wasn't that a Mexican would take the job but that Mexican COUPLES would take the job. You and she can try to spin it in any manner you like, but the point is that she was just making an assumption, based on race that was absolutely dead wrong.
Here is the definition of prejudice...
An adverse judgment or opinion formed beforehand or without knowledge or examination of the facts.
Here is the definition of racism
Discrimination or prejudice based on race.
She made her judgement with no facts. She assumed they would do it because they were Mexican.
Racism to me, regardless of what you want to repeat, namecall, spin, or whatever. Prejudice does not have to start with bad intent, it starts with ignorance and that is exactly what she displayed.
So expose away. You can't because what I said is true. I CHALLENGE you to find a link that shows that the trend of stay at home mothers hasn't been growing, especially due to Hispanic influence.
And again with the names, I suppose the list has to get longer because god-forbid you have to repeat yourself instead of say, refuting what I claim with things like links, facts, evidence, etc.
Mexicans do take over certain industries and so do other ethnic groups. However if I claimed that say Jewish immigrants would go work in vegetable fields you would likely laugh out loud at that claim. However Jewish immigrants have a history of going into skilled trades.
A lot of Koreans/Indians own convenience stores. A lot of Chinese immigrants open restaurants. I don't consider those the most physically demanding jobs do you?
As usual your claims are 100% bullshit. There are some Mexican immigrants that do physical labor. This is true of all groups. The fact that certain groups get into a vocational niche, consider it a strong area and then have a whole lot of their peers follow is like saying the Earth goes around the sun. It is true of all groups, not just Mexicans nor just immigrants. Gee women go into teaching and nursing disportionately. Seems like a whole lot of white men went into computers and are now pissed their jobs are going to SKILLED workers in India.
See Shawn you bias is that you assume all immigrants poorly educated, unskilled, and likely only capable of manual labor.
However immigrants are capable of taking over all sorts of fields in mass, not just unskilled ones. There are so many Filipino nurses your head would spin, but I suppose they have to be digging a hole or working in a field to be an "immigrant" to you.
Here are some of these.... I like to call them links..perhaps you can start using them too.Hispanic Cultural Influence-More Moms staying homeMore kids have a stay at home mom
She said COUPLES claiming that if other moms decided to stay home with their children, the Mexican (her words) moms would dump the kids and go to work in their place.
However they have a different set of priorities than us.
Of course if "I" assumed my set of priorities were better than "Mexican" priorities or even that the should adopt mine because mine are better, it would be seen as racism.
That's exactly what it is in her case. Spin, spin, spin away and of course call names too because that is all you can do.
Every year they measure the gains in productivity. Eventually there is just less work to do. Farms don't as much labor today as they did 100 years ago. I can't think of any industry that does require more labor now than it did in the past once growth has been factored in.
That is why France passed the 35 hour work week. Eventually there will just be fewer jobs. It was passed by Socialists, it is considered... PROGRESSIVE to work fewer hours and still get the same amount of pay.
Even if a different ethnic group would take the job, all it means is that they are willing to be EXPLOITED and why the hell would you accept or encourage that?
