Dear Mexican: We have Mexican teenagers here in my apartment building who are chronic troublemakers. My question to you is: why do Mexicans break the rules, refuse to be corrected, and harass us senior citizens? Why is it always the Mexicans who are the worst? Is it in their culture? Or, are these just uneducated low-lifes? And because their fathers are nowhere in sight? The management here and the cops can hardly keep up with them, probably because they’re Mexicans, too.


Dear Gabacho: You didn’t give me specifics, so I’m not sure if the young Mexicans in questions are merely playing in the hallway in violation of apartment rules or making you pay a protection “tax.” I’m thinking the former, because Mexicans are taught to revere viejitos as if they were their own abuelitas, so rarely disrespect the elderly. Since you’re claiming Mexican cops and apartment managers are conspiring to protect the kids from punishment, I’m going to mark you down as a nasty old bigot, the kind who remembers when Mexicans were referred to as “wetbacks” and everyone laughed at Sy the Little Mexican. In the case you actually are a kind old soul, and a bunch of asshole kids are truly harassing you, call up an old Mexican grandma: her chancla will have them scrambling faster than a gabacho running to the restroom after eating habanero salsa.

Why do the women on Mexican television wear so much eye makeup?

Mascara Maven

Dear Gabacho: Same reason American women on television do—patriarchy.


I was in a Mexican restaurant and saw a map of Mexico on the wall with all the states shown. I’d previously assumed that Chiapas and Yucatán were cultural regions, like Appalachia or the Pacific Northwest, not states in a republic. I never really liked or learned geography. Thank Glob for Google Maps, right? In public school, maps always showed North America as Canada and its territories, the U.S. and all its states, but Mexico as a unitary region. Wikipedia says that Mexico’s official name is United Mexican States (in English). Cartographers might say that Mexican state names won’t fit in available space, but they still draw Rhode Island on the map of the U.S. Showing Canadian Territories makes Canada seem “like us,” while showing Mexico as a single region makes Mexico seem undeveloped, under-governed, and homogenous.

Other countries also have states or provinces that aren’t shown, like Brazil and China. Mexican states probably vary more than Canadian provinces do. Is the snow in Manitoba different than the snow in Ontario? Why do you think that most maps made in the U.S. show U.S. states and Canadian territories, but not Mexican states?

‘F’ in Geography


Dear Gabacho: Because the U.S. and Canada are English-speaking neighbors, while Mexico ain’t. Meanwhile, Mexican maps don’t offer the same courtesy to its Central American neighbors in showing each country’s departments (their version of states)—further proof to chapines, catrachos, ticos and guanacos alike that Mexicans are brown Hitlers. No joke here; they really do!

    All low IQ ethnic groups / races are troublemakers, without exception.

  2. Gustavo, you forgot “oh, and #fuckTrump”.

  3. Anonymous • Disclaimer says:

    Like in everything that measures civilization, they are halfway between blacks and whites.
    Every statistic tells us the same, from number of abandoned children to SAT scores (even after the SAT has been watered down, more than once, to hide differences in intelligence).

    Of course environmental causes…

  4. Mexican parents, like blacks, teach their children to hate Whites.

    The gaystream media deride and mock White men, portraying us as stupid, ugly, cowardly losers deserving of contempt and abuse.

    Is it any wonder Mexicans act like little pricks toward us? They’re taught nothing but hate from the moment they’re born.

    Build that wall, President Trump. Deport these White-loathing racists.

    Why do Mexicans speak a squat-version of Spanish?

  6. @Je Suis Omar Mateen

    Nah! I believe that those Mexicans kids, are not more Mexicans that the Canadians up north. When are you going to learn that people born in the USA are ‘Americans”? white, brown black, yellow, etc. “American” is a nationality, not a race, for those who don’t know yet. And ‘whites’ are as Americans as other colors, and No, Germans, French, English, whatever, they are not ‘Americans’ Just, because they are white; Get it? I hope so.

    And forget that bull about ‘African-American”or “Mexican-American’.. or.. or.. ‘Euro-American?’
    I would rather call them simple “Americans” to avoid confusion.

  7. I agree with Gus about as often as Haley’s Comet……but I think some of you are overblowing things here. I live in close proximity to scads of them. They are only marginally worse than I was at that age.

    I regularly walk streets in a neighborhood I call Baja Tustin that is 90+% Mexican…….at midnight and 1 am…….have never for a second felt threatened for my safety and security.

    You most certainly cannot do that in a 90% Dindu neighborhood.

    Now, one thing where Gus IS full of it is the assertion that the Grandma’s can put an end to it real quick-like.

    “………In the case you actually are a kind old soul, and a bunch of asshole kids are truly harassing you, call up an old Mexican grandma: her chancla will have them scrambling faster than a gabacho running to the restroom after eating habanero salsa…….”

    If Granny possesses such powers… is it they allow destructive, violent, stupid and retarded GANG CULTURE to live for generation upon generation?

    How I wish Gus would read these comments…..I may have to forward them direct under separate cover.

  8. ash says:

    The term “wetback” initially referred specifically to illegal alien Mexicans. And everyone laughed at the Jack Benny routine with Mel Blanc playing a character called Sy because it was funny, and still is. (And I’m not old or a bigot)

  9. @in the middle

    “Nah! I believe that those Mexicans kids, are not more Mexicans that the Canadians up north.”

    I’ll stop calling them Mexicans the moment they stop.

    Mexicans in America could call themselves White with a perma-tan or ‘olive-skinned’ because they are at least part European or in some cases mostly European, but they consume the same anti-White propaganda I do, so they know Whites are ugly, stupid, undesirable, and worthless, as portrayed 24/7 by the gaystream media. Thus they identify as Mexican, not White, though they are genetically European.

  10. Adar. says:

    Mexican kids are just behaving according to their true and basic nature. Most are mestizo and confused as to who they actually are. Have no respect for anyone. Look at the graffiti they do.

    It easier to invadido su país then de pie como verdaderos hombres and fijar ours. We are coños.

  12. @Adar.

    “Look at the graffiti they do”

    what i find fascinating is if you graffiti over their graffiti it’s disrespecting……think about that for a moment….we have a group that just disrespected the owner of the building or what ever and that group is concerned about respect.

    circular logic.

  13. @Wally

    Pygmies included*

    And ALL higher IQ ethnic groups/races are also ”sofisticately” troublemakers, without exception.

  14. TheBoom says:

    It only makes sense for Mexicans to be trouble makers. In the US ethnic groups behave in the manner they did in their home country. More crime and dysfunctional behavior in Mexico than in developing European countries such as Central Europe. Fewer problems from Mexicans in the US and Mexico than among blacks in the US and Africa.
