Dear Mexican,I love Mexicans and Mexican culture. I show as much respect to whomever crosses my path, no matter class, race, gender, orientation, or status. But one thing is for sure...by and large, Mexicans are NOT trying to assimilate. There are enough Mexicans in this country to sustain themselves as an independent nation and economy within the confines of these borders. Mexicans are just as racist, protectionist, and insular as any other group could possibly be, including Asians and White people. I myself have gone out of my way to befriend Mexicans and I accept them as brothers and sisters, but let's be honest. Mexicans are comfortable being insulated within their culture. You guys are not falling over each other trying to be assimilated. I know this man.
