I'm Mexican born in Mexico and was brought up at age 9. I used to dislike a lot Mexican Americans but now I realize a lot of stuff but I still will say a lot of stuff that might be hurtful.
First of all Mexican Americans don't like us, they look down on us. That is true, and that is why Mexicans dislike them. Mexican Americans start the cycle.
Then we get really aggravated that a lot don't speak Spanish. Why do we get aggravated, because most of their parents are illegals or illiterate who only went to elementary school in Mexico and know not a single word in English, then their kids think they're all that with their English.
I think that's stupid because being bilingual is a plus, plus I would get it from someone that comes from many generations, but many their parents don't know anything in English and they still don't know a word in Spanish. That means they are ashamed of the language.
Then they are very ignorant about Mexico. Just because their parents come from some deserted place in the middle of nowhere full of donkeys and whatever, they think Mexico is all like that.
Mexico has cities, universities, airports, etc, etc.. but since their parents come from these 500 people dusty towns, they think that is Mexico.
So I've tried to be friends with some, but most either prefer to talk to white people or black people. Like I said they look down on us.
And nothing more aggravating to a Mexican is for Mexican Americans to go back to Mexico and talk all English over there.
We don't care non Spanish heritage tourists not speaking Spanish, we just get aggravated that someone whose parents don't talk a zip of English and are Mexican all of the sudden the kids decide to feel ashamed of the language, because that's what it is, there's no way they never heard spanish when the parents that's all they talk.
