Excuse me, but I have never

Excuse me, but I have never had a teacher "learn" me anything, however I have been taught many things in school including how to appreciate and respect the cultural differences and ideals that had shaped America. While everyone is shouting that Latino, and specifically in this region, Mexican, people are taking over "our jobs", "our schools", stealing "our taxes" why don't you open a book or talk to a history teacher and "learn" a little about the history of this country and the repeated racism that has accosted every large scale immigration in its history. "Irish need not apply", "No Italians", ect. Or maybe just look at the genocide that was used to "create" this country against its native inhabitants. Don't get wrong, I love this country and I love the potential it has and the potential that it gives to the people that make it up, I just think that the rose colored ethnocentrism needs to stop.
