MEXICAN-AMERICAN COMBAT VET ASKS HISPANICS: ‘If You’re Not Proud Of America, Why Are You Here?’

Screen Shot 2015-08-28 at 6.52.46 PM

I recently heard that a Hispanic reporter from Univision said that America ‘owes’ Hispanics.

This is the kind of mindset that is poisoning our Hispanic communities – and it is teaching our youth to feel entitled and abused by American society. When in reality, all that America has done is provide us with an opportunity to become anything and everything someone could set their mind to. If you’re here for the American dream and work hard everyday, don’t expect to be handed everything on a silver platter. Stop your victim mentality and go accomplish what you set out to do.

I understand the pride, culture and heritage of the Hispanic people and how important it is to pass on to the next generation. But, I also think it should be just as important to teach them to take pride in being an American by learning the constitution, being willing to defend, go to war, and die for this country to make it an even better country for the next generation.

If you don’t feel proud of being an American, why are you here?
