I grew up in europe and all you see and hear about is black this white that...
How come hispanics are so underrepresented in mainstream media and all that? Me and my m8s were shocked (not pissed off) about how many we saw in L.A

90 percent are illigal immigrants. Shocked? Yes. Pissed off? No. How could you, you came here legally and they didn't, and took your job. :lol:
