Re: Hispanic Culture Should Be Invisible in the United States.
Ummm you might want to read a little bit. The reason the Pilgrims came over was to get away from Religious persecution. The Virginian colony was for trade for Europe.

Also by your logic, unclaimed land is free to anyone to take. Talking about the Mexicans and Natives who came over on the Bearing straight over 4000 years ago. They found no other humans so they took the land. When the Europeans came over there was a lot of country still not claimed by anyone. Now it would be hard to figure out what is what today but there was plenty that was not claimed by Natives. Also Manhattan was actually bought and paid for so that doesn't need to go back to the original owners.
As for Hispanic culture... I welcome it. I just feel they should do their best to conform to our laws and general ways of life. I have no problem with legal immigrants to this country.
