In the fall of 2005, six Mexican immigrants were murdered when a group of black guys attempted to rob trailer parks known to house immigrant workers.

Both minorities have been reported to confront more than cooperate in certain areas; reports have pinpointed competition for jobs as a factor.

The following is an article by guest writer Trisha Velarmino, a world traveler from the Philippines who dated a Mexican man for 12 months (I promise it wasn’t me! Additionally, after 10 years since I first saw Sucre, I found out that he’s Puerto Rican. So anyways, here’s my list of the 10 reasons why you shouldn’t date a Mexican. Onions, tomatoes, lemon, a guacamole and it’s seed — that’s the perfect recipe for a cabron’s daily nutritional need. You will want to hug them even if it’s 39 freaking degrees outside which is not that uncommon since in most areas of Mexico it’s always either spring or summer. They ask this because they prefer to cook than eat out (and not only because of the money). These creatures are the most genuine people on earth. You might not understand it but I am sure you will get to memorize the exact words because it reflects sincerity. You might even be forced to tell them, “please, don’t be too nice.

I wasn’t deeply inlove with these dudes to be honest, but their unique ways are not too easy to forget. Think of it as a bear taking control of your body (but remember, biting is only allowed if you agree to it)! ” Seriously, when they say this, they are not trying to get into your pants (at least not the first time even though it happens). Although most of them are fluent in English, they have the habit of randomly murmuring in Spanish while looking at you, watching you sleep. They will treat you the same and that will make it harder for you to forget them.

Those "stories" tell of black men leaving their women, and of black men being promiscuous and violent. While problematic, my parents' thinking was the thinking of their time.

And, really, it roots deeper than my parents, my grandparents, and their parents before them.

I used to say I didn't have a type, but if we go off consistency, I do.

While I've dated other races, I'm mostly attracted to black men.

My eyes and heart tend to steer me in that direction.

I can't pinpoint physical features or characteristics of black men because that's not only wrong, it's just not the entire case. Have I come across one that's caught my attention? I have strong Mexican men in my life, too—my father and my two brothers—that I hold close, respect, and admire.

My dad knew that in order to ask for my mom's hand in marriage, he had to have a house ready for her. He also knew that the American Dream was the dream he wanted to achieve for them. She's always said that he's 'mi media naranja' (a Spanish saying for soul mate).

My mom knew her father wouldn't approve either way. She knew if she wanted to be with my dad, she'd have to runaway with him. Despite not knowing she was pregnant with my older brother at the time, she hid in a bunk in the back of my father's van and they crossed the border together.

But I've never dated someone of my own ethnicity: Mexican. And I would say Colombian, but that courtship never blossomed into much after he came over my house and serenaded me with his acoustic guitar. Time and again, after being introduced to a black guy I was dating, my mother either let out heavy sighs or foretold my future under her breath. My dad used his seasonal, strictly temporary passport for work and came to Arizona to pick fruit.
