This is true.
I've worked with a lot of Mexicans as well. One thing was basically true. The darker mexicans are actually less racist because they don't bother trying to pass as white or something else. The bad racism double standards occur among the lighter complexioned mexicans. Now you want to talk extreme racism, and I'm talking "One minute the biggest pompous white and proud of it type then another minute the biggest macho mexican pride type" you've ever seen, look no further than light complexioned mexicans. They are the biggest racists both against their own people and against whites and blacks and anyone else you'll ever meet.
I attribute that to their loss of identity. They know they don't fit in among the darker complexion mexicans and they know they don't fit in among actual anglos either so they adopt a very big double standard in that they try to be everybody at once.
Those are the rich and or middle class "white" mexican nationals from Mexico. They're extremely racist yes, but not who I'm talking about because they actually are usually Jewish, Anglo, Spanish or some other whiter complexion Mexican national with little to no Amerindian admixture.
The Mexicans I'm referring to are Mestizos. Half Amerindian, half Spanish or Anglo. They're the ultra racist ones and are the most common Mexicans in the US. They aren't white and they aren't Amerindian, they're Mestizos which is a mix of both. Because of this they're identities are very conflicted. Many of them will joke about mexicans around anglos then as soon as anglos leave room or even if they don't they'll then joke with actual Amerindian mexicans about anglos. They like to play both sides of the fence and I've seen both Amerindian (darker) mexicans and anglos rib them for this double standard. It's hard to blame them though. Just think about it. They can't throw in with full Amerindians who are fully dark complexion and don't resemble them, nor can they throw in easily with Anglo's who they don't resemble either. That has to be a tricky road to walk and a very internally conflicting one.
Not from the jungle. Not from the mountains. A product of a bygone genocide that probably won't occur again. Such is why Mestizos resent Amerindians in South American and Mexico and the U.S.. The Amerindians are breeding out the Mestizos now that the genocides that created the mestizo masses are a thing of the past. Nature has a way of restoring its natural intentions.

[QUOTE=Bodhisattva;1063414001]We will know more but one thing we know already is that many Mexicans are abusing systems with regards to illegal immigration and that it affects our schools, teachers, hospitals, credit systems, court systems, etc. as well as taking money out of our economy and shipping it south./QUOTE]Nothing xenophobic about it.[
If you think that it's OK to treat any human being in the USA with anything less than basic human respect that's your business.
I and, I'm sure, most people in the USA will never support that kind of thinking.
But don't let that stop you from doing whatever turns you on.

To her Wall Street owners: Hillary Clinton: “But if everybody's watching, you know, all of the back room discussions and the deals, you know, then people get a little nervous, to say the least. so, you need both a public and a private position.” - Hillary Clinton: "I'm kind of far removed from the struggles of the Middle Class"
According to the USA Today article I cited earlier, three-fourths of the minors entering the country through Mexico are from Guatemala, El Salvador, and Honduras.
