Dear Mexican: When Americans retake California from you low-IQ Mexicans, should we call it the Reconquista? Why don’t Mexicans (and blacks, for that matter) understand that when they move into a white neighborhood because it is such a nice place to live, they will turn it into a bad place by their presence? Why don’t Mexicans understand we don’t need or want them, and they will be replaced by automation? Would Mexicans welcome a US invasion by God-Emperor Trump in order to replace their corrupt elite with decent right-wing Americans, who will rule competently? Where will Mexicans go when Diversity+Proximity=War becomes true? Mexico doesn’t seem to want them either.

Your New Master, Same as Your Old Master

Dear Gabacho: I talked to one of your kind last month for about half-an-hour over the phone, until his Bolivian wife told him to hang up. The biggest issue I told him I had about anti-Mexican arguments—you know, besides the blatant racism—is the lack of sources for the Right’s pathetic claims. Same with you: just ‘cause you and Steve Bannon say something is true doesn’t make it so. And here you come proving my pinche point. A 2013 Reason article tracked IQs among immigrants of previous generations and concluded “modern Hispanic immigrants seem to be no stupider than the immigrant ancestors of other Americans.” Yay! (And before you trot out stats insisting that the IQs of Mexican-Americans don’t increase with generation—ask them if they’ve tracked the same among poor gabas in the South). Mexicans turning gabachos neighborhoods bad? Read USC professor Jody Agius Vallejo’s magisterial Barrios to Burbs: The Making of the Mexican American Middle Class, which debunks both Know Nothing AND yaktists who say Mexicans must remain perpetual peons across generations. Automation? Ask the Rust Belt how robots have treated gabachos. Benevolent conservative rulers? Ask the Rust Belt how right-wing Americans have treated gabachos. And as for that last neo-Nazi dog whistle—here’s where the stupidity and insecurity of your movement gets exposed at its worst. What has made the United States the greatest country on Earth is that multitudes of non-“white” immigrants like Jews, Italians, Russians, Irish, Asians Mexicans and, sure, even some “whites” came to make the U.S. great. The only people that freak out about diversity are gabachos who keep fearing that Mexicans will ISIS them once we’re the majority, not bother to realize most Mexicans would rather see the Oakland Raiders move to Los Angeles than kill whitey (except Roger Goodell and Tom Brady). You know the one thing Mexicans truly don’t like about gabachos? Their propensity for excuses and whining like CHAVALAS.



I’m an American and have a Mexican boyfriend of one year. He doesn’t seem to want his family to know anything about our relationship. I do know he doesn’t have another girlfriend, as I visited him in Mexico while he was there. Saw his house and his family, but he explained me as a person that works with him. It’s true that I work with him, but there is so much more to the story that he doesn’t want to share. Is he a private person or am I his dirty little secret?

Gone Gabacha Girl

Dear Gabacha: When it comes to gabachos, Mexican men have a hard-set rule before they introduce them to the fam: two years, or two kids. The choice is yours!

    I’ll counter with a text that presents a somewhat bleaker take:

    Generations of Exclusion: Mexican-Americans, Assimilation, and Race
    by Edward M. Telles , Vilma Ortiz

    According to the authors, Mexican-American progress stalls at the third generation….

    And as for Jody Agius Vallejo, she looks really European in her photos:

    Dunno if the USA is the greatest country on Earth, but it’s kind of interesting how all those ethnies (Ashkenazi Jews, Italians, Russians, and the Irish) are European…..whereas most Mexicans living in the USA are Mestizo/Amerind…

    Asians Mexicans

    Well, some East Asians haven’t done so well (e.g., the Hmong), but, of the ones who have (Koreans, Japanese, Chinese), it’s interesting to note that they are doing a lot better than Hispanic Mestizos and Amerinds….

  5. Apparently, this clown is the token Hispanic that is allowed to comment so we can see how specious and self-serving his thoughts are. Apparently, he doesn’t have the intellectual honesty to admit that his “people” immigrated to a “White” country, some of them improved their position in life, so the White posterity of this country should be happy and admit the entire population of Mexico because a very small percentage of these creatures have assimilated. Never mind the genetic damage to a culture provided by the mestizo gene pool. What all pro-illegal immigrant proponents never admit is that these creatures had to move to a “White” country because their own countries are third world latrines. The opportunities they were provided were provided by “White” people because their own people are not very creative. And these apologists ignore the fact that in their own countries they allow the descendants of “White” Europeans to rule them because they recognize their own position on the scale of humanity. We don’t need any more Hispanics in this country. While not a bad as Negros, they are a net negative in their contributions to society.

    Ca needs to rejoin with Mexico. And all those progs in Ca should support this because they will be ruled by ‘browns’ than by gringos.

  9. TG says:

    A few points.

    1. What about the melting pot? I’m old school on this – if people from Mexico want to come here and become citizens, then they should stop calling themselves Mexicans. Immigration without assimilation is invasion (and assimilation is not mostly about leaning English or wearing blue jeans – it’s about loyalty). Seems to me that that worked pretty well in the last immigration surge.

    2. We should always remember what a vicious xenophobic immigration system Mexico has. Only ethnically pure Mexicans can immigrate and become citizens – Spanish is the official language of Mexico and if you’re arrested you have to pay for your own interpreter or you are out of luck – non-Mexicans entering the country illegally are given no rights but brutalized robbed etc. and kicked out of the country without a fare-thee-well. No Mexican has the moral right to complain about anything Trump is proposing, which is quite mild compared to what Mexico already has. No discussion of a border wall should omit these facts.

    3. Be careful what you wish for, you may get it. Why are all those Mexicans so desperate to leave Mexico? Are they racist and hate their fellow Mexicans? Or perhaps, they don’t want to live in a dirt-poor overpopulated country? Why then should Americans be criticized for wanting the same thing? So imagine that California ends up with a population of 100 million and it’s as bad as Guatemala. Now what? Perhaps we should focus less on Americans wanting to stop Mexicans from flooding in over the border, and more on why – despite 25 years of NAFTA and dumping its surplus population on the United States – Mexico is still so poor. Ah, but that might hit the profits of those Mexican billionaires who have made record fortunes from all that lovely cheap labor, and that of course is racist.

    First, Mexico isn’t overpopulated. Europe is slightly less than twice as densely populated as Mexico. Second, what do you have against Mexican immigration laws? If they’re vicious and xenophobic you are too. And how does Mexicans leaving and no-one entering help build up this enormous pool of lovely cheap labor from which Mexican billionaires make their lovely fortunes?

    I don’t think you’re wrong exactly, you just aren’t expressing yourself very well here.

  11. Alfa158 says:

    Americans don’t need to retake California because the state is still run by Americans. The only thing that has changed to date is that left wing Americans, and now Asians, are using the Mexican population as a bottomless source of cheap labor, white collar jobs for themselves as administrators in the social and educational industries, and robotic voters who will vote for anyone with a D after their name even if they are transsexuals slightly to the left of Leon Trotsky.
    Do you think that Mexicans were clamoring for the California law that requires public schools to let any kid regardless of their sex use the girl’s bathroom or locker room? Yeah sure, I remember the roofers working on my neighbors house taking a quick break to give three cheers when the news came over the radio that Brown had signed the bill into law.
    Americans aren’t going to retake or keep California. High IQ Asians will simply take over title. Things will only get worse for the Mexicans and Blacks at the bottom of society as the old patrons are replaced by people blissfully free of any race guilt or empathy for the Other.

    Destroy the aqueduct system of California and the state becomes a desert as it was before whitey arrived on the scene. Jaguars used to roam where Los Angeles is now.

    Lots of toxic chemicals the gringo is always talking about no one knows how to get rid of. That Central Valley would make a nice place for dumping I venture. Create a wasteland uninhabitable.

  13. @Alfa158

    They are called street gangs. Large portions of East LA already ruled by them. Why not the rest of the state?

  14. Angel says:

    Exactly the case. CA becomes part of MEX and the numbers of people crossing the “border” north will be prodigious beyond what it is now. Everyone is going to come and it will not just be MEX alone.

    well i love Mexicans, the food and the woman especially BUT if the right was so wrong A: Mexico would be a Paradise and B: it’s people wouldn’t be risking life and limb to get the fuck out.

    the FACT that all these people want to get the the USA proves there is something wrong there, not here.

    In reality though i think everyone just wants to come here for the free shit….especially refuges who get all the welfare and SS without paying a dime into the system.

    “is that multitudes of non-“white” immigrants like, Italians”

    i always suspected that i wasn’t white………so I’m still confused on why that hot Latina from years ago told me “I don’t date white guys”

  17. If I had a website and I wanted people to dislike Mexis, I’d get a chicken necked blowhard like Gustavo to shoot his mouth off.

  18. Listening to an unrelated TED talk by the recently departed statistician Hans Rosling, I noticed this side comment about what made California work:

    Governance. To have a government which functions — that’s what brought California out of the misery of 1850. It was the government that made law function finally.

    The Mexican-American war ended in 1848, and California became a territory of the United States. Two years later, in 1850, California was admitted into the Union as the 31st state.

    The term is “American”. My ancestors knocked the dirt of Europe off their feet nearly 400 years ago. I am not European in any way shape or form. I am an American. Now, if your ancestors were dirty immigrants during the late 1800s or early 1900s, then you might be a “Euro American”, but you should go back to your home land.

    ” Seems to me that that worked pretty well in the last immigration surge.”

    Some groups turned out to be more loyal and assimilated than others. I don’t think we would have the cult of the immigrant if America had remained a nation predominantly made up of the descendants of colonists and settlers.

    “Western man towers over the rest of the world in ways so large as to be almost inexpressible. It’s Western exploration, science, and conquest that have revealed the world to itself.
    Other races feel like subjects of Western power long after colonialism, imperialism, and slavery have disappeared.
    The charge of racism puzzles whites who feel not hostility, but only baffled good will, because they don’t grasp what it really means: humiliation.
    The white man presents an image of superiority even when he isn’t conscious of it.
    And, superiority excites envy.
    Destroying white civilization is the inmost desire of the league of designated victims we call minorities.”

  28. Forget arguing all of the inaccurate Anti-White assertions this “Mexican” makes…

    Thing is, We Whites, yes that includes ALL White Europeans, not those limited to the Anti-White abstract politicization and re-categorization of genetically homogeneous Europeans, just want at least one Nation where we can maintain our majority including our culture and our traditions which are being dissolved into universal, global, Multikulti materialism.

    Mexicans, like all other races and ethnicities (except the Kurds) have their own nations, where they can enjoy their majority without being called a slur words like racist, xenophobe, hater, inbred or a supremacist.

    You have a home Mexican, you should go there and MMGA.

    California is going to secede to get away from the evil deplorables in Middle America.

    Osta la vista, Cali baby. Don’t the door hit you on your way out.

    Now we could just get Seattle, Portland, New England, New York, eastern PA, DE, MD, DC, and the upper midwest to leave with CA, then our country would have a fighting chance in 50 years.

  30. Jake says:
    @Bill Jones

    Sobran was spot on, as always.

    The root hatred for Whitey, though, is not the Western superiority, but the fact of Christendom. Christianity was preached in black Africa early on, and it reached India and then China. But the only people to build a Christian civilization are whites. The Middle Eastern Christian civilization was built upon the pillars of Greek philosophy and art and Latin law and order. As European cultural hegemony was replaced by Arabic and Turkic, Christian civilization died, leaving small churches with very little cultural sway.

    The war against historic Christianity and the war against Whitey are the same war.

  31. What would Messicans do with CA?

    Immediately plead for the continuation of diversion of the Colorado River.

    Seriously, as soon as policing an even longer border became a predictable headache, people in the rest of North America, whatever one might call that polity, would invade, reconquer and repatriate…so why don’t Mestizos just go home now and save everyone all that trouble?

    During times of plenty, long, undefendable borders are no problemo.

    During times of resource restriction, they are sources of considerable trouble. As it is, the southern border is a PITA to defend. It might be simpler to depopulate Northern Mexico than put up with constant border incursions in coming years.

    A second Mexican-American War doesn’t seem far fetched at all, and I really don’t think Mexico would be likely to prevail in one.

    Another person who thinks all ‘whities’ went to the USA. Sad ignorance. Argentina is the whitest nation in the Americas, and look, no Mexicans there! So somehow Mexicans have enriched the USA a great deal.

    Cuz you WHITE, Cracka!

    You realize this is coming from a man who calls not only the Italians, but also the Irish and the Russians, non-white.

  34. Stealth says:

    The letter he’s responding to looks a tad fabricated. Nevertheless…

    Where to begin?

    1) I question his belief that people who weren’t considered white made the country great. Whites were probably almost eighty five percent of the population when the 1965 immigration act was passed. If the United States back then hadn’t been a paradise relative to Latin America and Asia, then none of those nonwhite immigrants would have wanted to come here in the first place.

    2) I know the left is in denial of reality as it pertains to so many issues, but really, the Irish aren’t white? They’re among the palest ethnic groups in existence, and I seriously doubt that anyone every questioned whether or not they were white. This is just plain stupid, and I would be embarrassed to have written it if I were Arellano.

    I don’t recall saying that Anglo-America got all the European immigrants/settlers who came to the New World….

    As for Argentines, they actually have much more Amerind ancestry (on average) than the typical Anglo-American:

    So somehow Mexicans have enriched the USA a great deal.

    Sadly, they haven’t. In terms of art and science, Mexicans have contributed very little to Anglo-America. And I doubt that we are going to see Mexican-American versions of Josiah Willard Gibbs and Claude Shannon anytime soon….

    (sorry, not all whities went to the north of the continent during European migrations.)

    Yes, as I noted above, I never said that all the European immigrants/settlers went to Anglo-America.

  36. notsaying says:

    This guy gets paid by publications or media syndicates who get most of their subscribers/revenues, etc., from white people. Without white people he’d be out of a job.

    The truth of the matter is that he takes money from white people to insult them on a regular basis. I am not sure what that makes the white people who read him, or him. At the very least he is dependent on white people, white people sure don’t have to depend on him, though.

    Note that white people are not always right or without prejudice.

    But the US is not obligated to take an infinite number of newcomers. It is our country.

    These are two facts that Mr. Arellano doesn’t want to acknowledge.

    Also it is interesting that he chooses to live here. If Americans are so bad, why doesn’t he go to Mexico? As the child of a Mexican father, he’d be allowed to get citizenship and live in Mexico. He has a choice of country, most Americans don’t. The US is all we have.

  37. Americans afraid Mexicans will be like ISIS?

    Well some whites I’ve made that fled California talked about Hispanic gang members and “youths” in their neighborhoods… Not ISIS material, yet. They showed promise. But really, your neighborhood getting Latinized is a real bummer in lots of ways. And work, well, you just don’t benefit by being a white blue collar worker in a sea of brown, to say the least, generally speaking.

  38. Why does this leftist publish here at TUR? I thought this site was for rightists.

    For the record, Mexicans do NOT raise the standard of civilization for Whites, but no, they are not as objectionable as Muslims. So what? Not being as bad as Muslims is no reason for admission to this White nation.

  39. I lived in Mexico City for about a year (don’t ask).

    My circle was Mexicans and a tiny number of British ex-pats, plus a Tex-Mex.

    Granted, I lived in a nice neighborhood (Condesa), but I experienced no problems. People minded their own business and seemed happy; everything was very well ordered.

    It was more like a classic European city. Walking around at 2 in the morning, I felt safer than in the many Southern U.S. cities I’ve lived in.

    The smell from the sewer grates on dry days was terrible, but this was the only negative.

    Trump was more right than most people know when he said, “When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending their best.” The best Mexicans are in Mexico.

    Conclusion: people who remain in their own countries, with their own people, and are reasonably successful there, are the best people. I took my own advice, returned to the U.S., and never looked back.

    IMO, the best do not emigrate.

  41. The SJWs (Social Justice warriors) , Cultural Marxists, and all the rest of the highly educated liberal elites won’t be happy until there are a billion or more people in the USA. Since when is it a right to be able to come in or sneak into the USA. Some African woman on TV yesterday said her Nigerian father came here to better himself but why can’t these people better themselves in their own countries? This African woman was angered at our lack of compassion for all the billions across the world. Why aren’t people knocking down trees to get into the African bush?
    Most South African Blacks liked South Africa more when it had law and order under Whitey’s rule.
    Maybe the USA will have 2 billion people in 10 years if the liberals run things.
    My blue eyed Irish father could not tan-he always burned. He was pretty white. It is a good thing that my father and his two brothers were sent to the ETO in WW2 and not to the Pacific. They got frostbite instead of severe sunburn.
    I guess the African Americans and other immigrants do not know that the first slaves sent to the Caribbean plantations were predominantly Irishmen (separated from their children and wives) and mixed in with them were Englishmen and Scotsmen. They can look at the flag of Montserrat showing the red headed fair skinned Gaelic woman holding a harp.

  42. bomag says:

    By whose law?

    Land claims at that time were just arbitrary lines drawn on a map. Mexico had scant ability to administer those lands, and I’m sure the Apache et al would have something to say when you start going back and correcting historical wrongs using today’s sensibilities.

    And anyway, Mexicans just trot out an 1821 land claim as an excuse to get in on some looting.

  43. You must be free from the West Coast because every predominant black city or state I’ve visited was fabulous.
