    Matios Haile Zeru? What is wrong with the Hispanics and their names? It is no wonder they are not successful in our society. Worried more about their dumb Chicano lifestyle and how many dumb Latinas they can get on their back, rather than focused on their education and jobs.

      Jack – No one can figure those things out. This is why we need a wall on the border to make sure that these things remain in their failed country of origin….Mexico.
