Mexican Americans quotes by Joe Baca
#1. Cinco de Mayo has come to represent a celebration of the contributions that Mexican Americans and all Hispanics have made to America. #Quote by Joe Baca
Mexican Americans quotes by Ami Bera
#2. Our nation is built upon a history of immigration, dating back to our first pioneers, the Pilgrims. For more than three centuries, we have welcomed generations of immigrants to our melting pot of hyphenated America: British-Americans; Italian-Americans; Irish-Americans; Jewish-Americans; Mexican-Americans; Chinese-Americans; Indian-Americans. #Quote by Ami Bera
Mexican Americans quotes by Rodolfo Gonzalez Lebrero
#3. Where are we going? We're going to try and fulfill Dr. Martin Luther King's dream, and if we Mexican Americans march to Washington, it is to tell this country that poverty is not a Negro problem. Poverty is a Mexican-American problem; poverty is an American-Indian problem; poverty is a Puerto Rican problem; poverty is an Appalachian problem. #Quote by Rodolfo Gonzalez Lebrero
Mexican Americans quotes by Marco Rubio
#4. I can tell you what I believe, particularly about Mexican-Americans: they are a community that has contributed greatly to this country, they work extremely hard, they've been very productive citizens of our country, and I think that's true of many ethnic groups in this country. #Quote by Marco Rubio
Mexican Americans quotes by Sergio Troncoso
#5. I believe we have reached a point where those of us who belong to this culture of la frontera in Ysleta and El Paso are not content to sit back and watch others tell us who we are. We know who we are, and we ourselves can tell others about what we love and what we fear and what we hate and what can save us. I believe our community has developed that confidence to step forward and start taking responsibility for the many images that are projected in the name of Ysleta and El Paso. #Quote by Sergio Troncoso
Mexican Americans quotes by Sergio Troncoso
#6. I held Angie Luna in that room for hours, and I remember the different times we made love like epochs in a civilization, each movement and every touch, apex upon abyss. In the luxury of our bed, we tried every position and every angle. I explored the curves on her body and delighted in seeing the freedom of her ecstasy. Her desperate whispers and pleas. I told her I loved her, and she said she loved me too. We lay in bed with our limbs entangled, in a pacific silence that reminded me of existing on a beach just for the sake of such an existence. I couldn't imagine the world ever becoming better, and for some strange reason the thought slipped into my head that I had suddenly grown to be an old man because I could only hope to repeat, but never improve on, a night like this. I finally took her home sometime when the interstate was empty, and the bridges seemed to lead to nowhere, for they were desolate too. #Quote by Sergio Troncoso
Mexican Americans quotes by Sandra Cisneros
#7. Imagine Americans who go to Paris. Why would you want to go where someone's going to disparage you? Why would you go anywhere where they treat you bad? Well, that's how it is for us to go to Mexico. You have to be on your guard, because I think the Mexicans are harder on the Mexicans, the Mexican-Americans. They don't see us as Mexican. I think part of it's a class issue and a color issue. We're more connected to their servants, so what are we doing staying at a nice hotel? There's a kind of shame. #Quote by Sandra Cisneros
Mexican Americans quotes by Ta-Nehisi Coates
#8. When people discuss the drug war, they are usually referring to the one that began in the 1970s, without realizing that this was, at least, our third drug war in the twentieth century. I found David F. Musto's The American Disease: Origins of Narcotic Control to be extremely helpful on the subject. It was depressing to see that drug wars, in this country, are almost never launched purely out of concern for public health. In almost every instance that Musto looks at there is some fear of an outsider - blacks and cocaine, Mexican Americans and marijuana, Chinese Americans and opium. #Quote by Ta-Nehisi Coates
Mexican Americans quotes by Bassem Youssef
#9. I pity Americans for their very bad fruits. Your 'mango' is cucumber. The only thing I really miss about Egypt is mangoes. #Quote by Bassem Youssef
Mexican Americans quotes by Alexis De Tocqueville
#10. I must say that I have seen Americans make great and real sacrifices to the public welfare; and have noticed a hundred instances in which they hardly ever failed to lend faithful support to one another. #Quote by Alexis De Tocqueville
Mexican Americans quotes by Anonymous
#11. Between 1950 and 2012, annual hours worked per worker fell significantly throughout Europe - by about 40 percent in Germany and the Netherlands - but by only 10 percent in the United States. Richer, college-educated Americans are working more than they did 30 years ago, particularly when you count time working and answering e-mail at home. #Quote by Anonymous
Mexican Americans quotes by Jamie Johnson
#12. Contrary to common assumption, many of the wealthiest Americans aren't worried about the weakening economy at all. They are actually excited about it. #Quote by Jamie Johnson
Mexican Americans quotes by Ken Follett
#13. If we lose the war, our creditors - mainly Americans - will go bankrupt. And if we win, we'll make the Germans pay. 'Reparations' is the word they use." "How will they manage it?" "They will starve. But nobody cares what happens to the losers. Anyway, the Germans did the same to the French in 1871." He stood up and put his cup in the kitchen sink. "So you see why we can't make peace with Germany. Who then would pay the bill?" Ethel was aghast. "And so we have to keep sending boys to die in the trenches. Because we can't pay the bill. Poor Billy. What a wicked world we live in." "But #Quote by Ken Follett
Mexican Americans quotes by Cary Fukunaga
#14. It's nice to represent to other people in the world that Americans actually do know what's happening in the world, can speak other languages and are conscientious. The perception quite often is that we don't know what's beyond our county line. #Quote by Cary Fukunaga
Mexican Americans quotes by Eric Schlosser
#15. We can have Americans eating affordably and eating in a way that's sustainable. #Quote by Eric Schlosser
Mexican Americans quotes by Randall Kennedy
#16. As soon as you say that there is a community called, let's say, black Americans, you've immediately created a boundary line - who's in that group, who's outside that group. #Quote by Randall Kennedy
Mexican Americans quotes by Dana Perino
#17. The intelligence activities undertaken by the United States government are lawful, necessary and required to protect Americans from terrorist attacks #Quote by Dana Perino
Mexican Americans quotes by Joseph Smith Jr.
#18. I ask the citizens of this Republic whether such a state of things is to be suffered to pass unnoticed, and the hearts of widows, orphans, and patriots to be broken, and their wrongs left without redress? No! I invoke the genius of our Constitution. I appeal to the patriotism of Americans to stop this unlawful and unholy procedure; and pray that God may defend this nation from the dreadful effects of such outrages. #Quote by Joseph Smith Jr.
Mexican Americans quotes by Frank Rich
#19. What are Americans still buying? Big Macs,Campbell's soup,Hershey's chocolate and Spam
the four food groups of the apocalypse. #Quote by Frank Rich
Mexican Americans quotes by Mitch McConnell
#20. Americans don't think we should be raising taxes on anybody, especially in the middle of a recession. #Quote by Mitch McConnell
Mexican Americans quotes by Kurt Vonnegut Jr.
#21. In case you haven't noticed, as the result of a shamelessly rigged election in Florida, in which thousands of African Americans were arbitrarily disenfranchised, we now present ourselves to the rest of the world as proud, grinning, jut-jawed, pitiless war-lovers with appalling powerful weaponry - who stand unopposed.
In case you haven't noticed, we are now as feared and hated all over the world as the Nazi's once were.
And with good reason.
In case you haven't noticed, our unelected leaders have dehumanized millions and millions of human beings simply because of their religion and race. We wound 'em and kill 'em and torture 'em and imprison 'em all we want.
Piece of cake.
In case you haven't noticed, we also dehumanize our own soldiers, not because of their religion or race, but because of their low social class.
Send 'em anywhere. Make 'em do anything.
Piece of cake.
The O'Reilly Factor.
So I am a man without a country, except for the librarians and a Chicago paper called "In These Times."
Before we attacked Iraq, the majestic "New York Times" guaranteed there were weapons of destruction there.
Albert Einstein and Mark Twain gave up on the human race at the end of their lives, even though Twain hadn't even seen the First World War. War is now a form of TV entertainment, and what made the First World War so particularly entertaining were two American inventions, barbed wire and the machine gun.
Shrapnel was invented #Quote by Kurt Vonnegut Jr.
Mexican Americans quotes by Walker Percy
#22. Free people have a serious problem with place, being in a place, using up a place, deciding which new place to rotate to. Americans ricochet around the United States like billiard balls. #Quote by Walker Percy
Mexican Americans quotes by Ann Charles
#23. This was turning into a B-rated Mexican soap opera, all pasión caliente and bad acting. I slammed the cupboard door into his face, a trick I'd learned from an old Tom and Jerry cartoon. However, unlike Tom the cat, Rex's face wasn't as flat as a pancake when I pulled the door away. But his nose was bleeding. I pointed at it. "Oops. You've got a little blood there. #Quote by Ann Charles
Mexican Americans quotes by John Lewis Gaddis
#24. Despite the legacy of slavery, the near extermination of native Americans, and persistent racial, sexual, and social discrimination, the citizens of the United States could plausibly claim, in 1945, to live in the freest society on the face of the earth. #Quote by John Lewis Gaddis
Mexican Americans quotes by Barack Obama
#25. And so you [young Americans]need to be the Idea Generation. The generation who's always thinking on the cutting edge, who's wondering how to create and keep the next wave of American jobs and American innovations, who's figuring out how to out-compete the Idea Generations of Indias and Chinas of the world. #Quote by Barack Obama
Mexican Americans quotes by Judy Schachner
#26. My name is Skippito Friskito. (clap-clap)
I fear not a single bandito. (clap-clap)
My manners are mellow,
I'm sweet like the Jell-o,
I get the job done, yes indeed-o. (clap-clap) #Quote by Judy Schachner
Mexican Americans quotes by Amy Tan
#27. This is the kind of China you Americans always see in the movies - the poor countryside, people wearing big hats to protect themselves from the sun. No, I never wore a hat like that! I was from Shanghai. That's like thinking someone from San Francisco wears a cowboy hat and rides a horse. Ridiculous! #Quote by Amy Tan
Mexican Americans quotes by Steven Magee
#28. You would be justified to believe that many Americans were killed by a government that failed to prepare for a pandemic. #Quote by Steven Magee
Mexican Americans quotes by Nikki Giovanni
#29. We [Black people] have always used our creativity to battle and we're not the only ones. Black Americans are certainly leaders in that simply because we were denied education and dealt with enforced illiteracy. But people seem to always forget that literacy is not the only way of learning things or conveying knowledge. #Quote by Nikki Giovanni
Mexican Americans quotes by Marjane Satrapi
#30. Americans think cinema is about storytelling; I don't believe that. I think it's a language and everyone has to find their own way of speaking. It's not so much what you say as the way you say it. #Quote by Marjane Satrapi
Mexican Americans quotes by Bill Maher
#31. If you're living hand-to-mouth, and still buying into the con that the big threats to America are socialized medicine, Mexican immigrants and tax increases, then you're not being kept down by the rich. You're being kept down by you. #Quote by Bill Maher
Mexican Americans quotes by Bill Frist
#32. From blood banking to the modern subway, from jazz to social justice, the contributions of African Americans have shaped and molded and influenced our national culture and our national character. #Quote by Bill Frist
Mexican Americans quotes by Matt Taibbi
#33. What we Americans go through to pick a president is not only crazy and unnecessary but genuinely abusive. Hundreds of millions of dollars are spent in a craven, cynical effort to stir up hatred and anger on both sides. #Quote by Matt Taibbi
Mexican Americans quotes by Stanley Hauerwas
#34. The 'Cold War' impinged on the daily lives of Americans. The wars after 11 September 2001 have been fought without the general American population having to make any sacrifices. It goes on, and so do we. #Quote by Stanley Hauerwas
Mexican Americans quotes by R. Kent Hughes
#35. Television has greater power over the lives of most Americans than any educational system or government or church. It is the control center of most homes-more ubiquitous and more controlling than Orwell's Big Brother #Quote by R. Kent Hughes
Mexican Americans quotes by Paulo Freire
#36. Just as it is important in Latin America to discuss ideas that come from North America, I think it is interesting for North Americans to discuss ideas that come from Latin America or Africa and do not insert themselves into capitalist interests. #Quote by Paulo Freire
Mexican Americans quotes by John Cleese
#37. The Americans all love 'The Holy Grail', and the English all love 'Life Of Brian', and I'm afraid on this one, I side with the English. #Quote by John Cleese
Mexican Americans quotes by John Cornyn
#38. But I do think it's unwise, and it - to build a mosque at the site where 3,000 Americans lost their lives as a result of a terrorist attack. And I think to me it demonstrates that the - that Washington, the White House, the administration, the President himself seems to be disconnected from the mainstream of America. #Quote by John Cornyn
Mexican Americans quotes by Barbara Ehrenreich
#39. According to a recent poll [ ... ] 94% of Americans agree that people who work fulltime should be able to earn enough to keep their families out of poverty. #Quote by Barbara Ehrenreich
Mexican Americans quotes by Harry Browne
#40. The American heritage was one of individual liberty, personal responsibility and freedom from government ... Unfortunately ... that heritage has been lost. Americans no longer have the freedom to direct their own lives ... Today, it is the government that is free - free to do whatever it wants. There is no subject, no issue, no matter ... that is not subject to legislation. #Quote by Harry Browne
Mexican Americans quotes by Marc Thiessen
#41. In 1996, the late, great New York Times columnist William Safire published a column, 'Blizzard of lies,' in which he laid out a series of falsehoods by Hillary Rodham Clinton and declared 'Americans of all political persuasions are coming to the sad realization that our First Lady -€" a woman of undoubted talents who was a role model for many in her generation -€" is a congenital liar.' #Quote by Marc Thiessen
Mexican Americans quotes by Mick LaSalle
#42. THIS IS A BOOK ABOUT FRENCH CINEMA, specifically the women of today's French cinema - a subject as vital as life and as irresistible as movies. Yet many Americans, unfamiliar with French film, will hear "women of today's French cinema" and immediately imagine something forbidding or austere. Other more refined cineastes may know and appreciate the French movies that play at art houses and arrive on DVD in this country, but they can't know the full story. They are not in a position to know that what they are seeing is just a hint of something vast and extraordinary. The full story is that for the last two decades France has been in the midst of an explosion of female talent. What is happening in France today is a blossoming of female brilliance and originality of a kind that has never happened anywhere or at any period of film history, with but one glorious exception - in the Hollywood of the 1930s. Indeed, today's Hepburns, Davises, Crawfords, Garbos, and Stanwycks are not American.

They're French. They are working constantly, appearing up to three or four times each year in films geared to their star personalities and moral meaning. These films, often intelligent, personal, and insightful investigations into what it means to be human in the twenty-first century, are the kinds of films that many Americans want to see. And they wonder why no one is making them. But people are making them, just not in the United States. Moreover, women are not only working in front #Quote by Mick LaSalle
Mexican Americans quotes by Victor Davis Hanson
#43. Did either the nonexistent or the measured response after a series of attacks on Americans the past decade - in Lebanon, Africa, Saudi Arabia, New York, and Yemen - suggest to our terrorist enemies that it was wrong and unwise to kill reasonable and affable people, or did the easy killing imply that self-absorbed and pampered Lotus-eaters would not much care who or how many were butchered as long as it was within reasonable numbers and spread out over time? #Quote by Victor Davis Hanson
Mexican Americans quotes by Jonathan Eig
#44. Italian-Americans in New York had not been in much of a flag-waving mood prior to DiMaggio's arrival. By the All-Star break, the rookie had established himself as a wonderful player (.358, 10HR, 60 RBIs), fully justifying the acclaim. But Gehrig was even better (.399, 20 HR, 61 RBIs). He was leading the league in nearly every category, including invisibility. #Quote by Jonathan Eig
Mexican Americans quotes by Jean Bricmont
#45. All those who prefer peace to power, and happiness to glory should thank the colonized people for their civilizing mission. By liberating themselves, they made Europeans more modest, less racist, and more human. Let us hope that the process continues and that the Americans are obliged to follow the same course. When one's own cause is unjust, defeat can be liberating. #Quote by Jean Bricmont
Mexican Americans quotes by Kazuo Ishiguro
#46. But tell me, Taro, don't you worry at times we might be a little too hasty in following the Americans? I would be the first to agree many of the old ways must now be erased for ever, but don't you think sometimes some good things are being thrown out with the bad? Indeed, sometimes Japan has come to look like a small child learning from a strange adult. #Quote by Kazuo Ishiguro
Mexican Americans quotes by Rick Santorum
#47. Thirty-two years after the legalization of abortion by the Supreme Court decision Roe v. Wade, the majority of Americans consider themselves pro-life. #Quote by Rick Santorum
Mexican Americans quotes by Mitt Romney
#48. Now is the moment when we can stand up and say, 'I'm an American. I make my destiny. And we deserve better! My children deserve better! My family deserves better. My country deserves better!' So here we stand. Americans have a choice. #Quote by Mitt Romney
Mexican Americans quotes by Lupita Nyong'o
#49. I spent some time back in Mexico at 16 because my parents thought it would be prudent for me to learn Spanish, because I held a Mexican passport. #Quote by Lupita Nyong'o
Mexican Americans quotes by Raquel Cepeda
#50. Perhaps finding out that we carry New World history in our genes will transcend racial checkboxes altogether and enable Latino-Americans to rethink what America is supposed to look like. #Quote by Raquel Cepeda
Mexican Americans quotes by Kimberly Kay Hoang
#51. Can you go back to America and tell all your friends that I do NOT want to be rescued? All these Americans and Viet Kieus who come here thinking that they need to save us are so stupid. If you had to choose between working in a factory for twelve hours a day with bosses who don't let you rest and [who] look at you like they are raping you with their eyes, or working in a bar where you have a few drinks and sometimes spread you legs for a man, which would you choose? Why don't people go rescue factory workers? We are the ones who were not scared to leave factory work for sex work. We are smart hustlers [*nguoi chen lan*], not dumb, scared factory workers!
- Trinh, twenty-four-year-old hostess in Lavender #Quote by Kimberly Kay Hoang
Mexican Americans quotes by B. R. Stateman
#52. Father did not allow himself to be involved with the young generation - our, as he called, hair-brained inventions. He preferred to keep himself isolated and did not, particularly, like Americans. But you were different - in you, father often said, 'he found an admirable soul'. #Quote by B. R. Stateman
Mexican Americans quotes by Ann Coulter
#53. The surge of ninety thousand poor Central Americans across the border in 2014 proved that. Obama pretended his hands were tied. It's the law! It wasn't the law. So either Obama is stupid or he was deliberately lying, and the smart money is on deliberately lying. #Quote by Ann Coulter
Mexican Americans quotes by Jennifer Granholm
#54. Every day in America, African Americans are reminded of their race in ways large and small. Every day. #Quote by Jennifer Granholm
Mexican Americans quotes by Jesse Ventura
#55. I think that when Americans go to vote, states should not list what party the candidates are affiliated with. That would require voters to actually think and get to know a candidate instead of voting for their favorite gang. 'Oh, this guy is a Republican, so he must be good.' #Quote by Jesse Ventura
Mexican Americans quotes by Marty Natalegawa
#56. Through the Australians, and the Japanese, too, I suppose, the Americans get their message across, but not in a heavy-handed way. #Quote by Marty Natalegawa
