I follow several local news stations on my Facebook page. When a Black person is accused/charged/convicted of a crime, the Mexicans are right there w/ the racist Whites making racist comments. Even when it's posts about "Obummer", or when the Zimmerman/Martin trial was on. I even commented that if Trayvon had been "Jose Rodriguez", the same racist Whites that they were siding with would have been making derogatory racist comments.

All I know is San Antonio Mexicans seem "different" than California Mexicans. Even Mexicans I have discussed this with from other states, say they don't understand why Mexicans here are so racist, when you would think they would unite more with their "browner cousins"/Blacks. Hell, THEY don't even understand it.

"I think a lot of why they voted Democrat this time around as a whole has to do with the illegal immigration situation, and how unfavorably the Republicans talked about it as a whole. "

Hispanics have been voting Democratic since they began tracking racial voting trends. FDR, Clinton, and LBJ each won over 90% of the Latino vote. Other than Reagan, George W. Bush did the best of any Republican candidate by winning a mere 44% of the Hispanic vote and that was because he had a pretty liberal immigration plan and Mexican family members. 
Also, look at how Cubans in Florida voted in 2012. For the first time since Castro came to power they split their vote between the two parties. Understand that in 2000, Al Gore only won 19% of their vote. Because of wet foot/dry foot (our immigration policy for Cuban exiles is basically that you can stay as long as you have one foot on dry land), Cubans aren't all that concerned about immigration policy. A 28+% swing in only 8 years is about something much bigger than immigration.

They may be on the trend to do that now.  But their vote is a lot more swingable than black Americans.

OMG so different. The Californian mexicans be so confused. When it was a big number of them moving to SA it would be Cali vs Texas in schools. Even though they were all mexican. Other hispanic groups ride along the coat tails like choose what side they wanted to be on. Like the small number of Puerto Ricans and Cubans. 
Mexicans are extremely racist and really look out for theyre own. The ones with money you cant tell them they not white and better than other mexicans.

I don't think so, not after the last 6 years. The media never really talked about it, but even Asians went for Obama at 73%. For the first time in history, every conceivable minority racial group went for the Democrat by over 70% and all are trending away from the GOP. That's a coalition the white power structure has no ability to do anything about but hide and watch us fix all that they've broken.

how can you be late speculating on the future?


Based on this in the article "Will white Hispanics see themselves as part of a different race, or will they see themselves as just another kind of white?"

Hispanics know whites will never consider them a part of the "white" race, therefore, they'll settle different kind of white. Being that Hispanics have their own light vs dark issues (white vs black) issues in their own community. White/European Hispanics already set themselves a part from their black/darker afro Hispanic counterparts. Best believe those white/European looking Hispanics living the "white privilege" compared to afro latinos.

Samone, I'm a very data driven person and politics is my passion so my optimism is based on the data and trends that have been moving this way for decades. Even in the run up to the 2012 election, the talk in politics was that Romney would be the last presidential candidate to try to win with the white vote alone. Because of population trends (66,000 Hispanics turn 18 every week, the freefall of the white birth rate, the most liberal generation of young people in American history, etc), the white power structure is simply unsustainable. In fact, last year there were many Republicans sounding the alarm that if they didn't get their isht together with minorities they could be out of the WH for a generation.
 Plus, the fact that the first black president was also one of only six presidents in history to win both times with over 51% of the vote (first time since 1956) and the only one to get over 70% of all minority votes is pretty telling about where the nation is moving. When you consider that women of color were largely responsible for that huge victory, it's hard for me to imagine that coalition won't hold in 2016 when Clinton runs.
