Why are Mexican Americans oppressed in the United States and Mexico?
It is very clear that social and physcological oppression is being done against the ethnic group, Mexican American. Politics and governments on both sides of the border play a huge factor. Once your a Mexican American you don't belong here in the US or over an Mexico. Have you ever the feeling of not belonging?

Mexican Americans are not oppressed. If they were really oppressed they would bother to learn the language. Since so few learn the langauage, it is apparent they are not feeling any oppression.

It's caused by over immigration to the US from Mexico. But the real root is the amount of i****************s and it becomes a sticky situation when you realize how dependent on cheap labor we have become however illegal it may be.

Because a lot of them are i****************s, so most Americans assume all Mexicans are i****************s. You have the drug lords to thank for that.

Are you kidding, they march in our streets DEMANDING legalization for illegal aliens that crossed our border, want the "dream act" to have taxpayers continue their higher education for kids not lucky enough to have been born here. The legal ones are welcome, illegal ones we wanted deported yesterday.
