    I don`t know where Hazelton is, but depending on the state/area, he might be praised for his comments...

    McAdoo is the name of the town. Secondly this will have little to no repercussions for him. Illegal immigration is a huge problem in the Hazleton area and they made both national and international news for their proactive steps to put an end to it long before Arizona did similar. There is a large Polish population in the area to begin with along of other European heritages but the opinion is widespread amongst people of all backgrounds - this is purely anti-illegal immigrants only.

    he didn`t say illegal immigrants, he said Hispanics. I didn`t know all Hispanics were illegals.

    i love these news paper questionnaire things, they put what ever you answer for some reason. for example in high school they did this, and a friend of mine was asked who he would like to meet, he answered Adolf Hitler. the next day im pretty sure most of the city though he was a neo-nazi.

    How can I say anything without getting called a racist pig. I am a racist, but I`m not a pig!

    17 units in my building. 3 occupied by hispanics. Those 3 units are the only problem tenants. Loud, obnoxious. Leave junk in from of their apartments. Leave crappy looking cars with a tire missing in the parking spaces. TONS of relatives over every freaking night and all weekend that spills into the court yard making noise and bothering people.

    Okay, I get it. Cultural differances, that`s just the way they live. Meanwhile everyone else suffers through the noise, closes their doors and windows on the hottest days and nights.

    So, I`m kinda sympathizing with mr. McAdoo.

    I agree Gerry. I hear my hispanic neighbors downstairs now, blasting their radio and pretending they can sing well over it, while their three children run back and forth (somehow sounding like their running across their ceiling), and four other family members are yelling over the music and laughing like donkeys...

    This will continue until 10 pm.
    Possibly 11.
    Management doesn`t give a crap.

    @uatme
    I`m actually from an area close to this and being from here making leaving nearly impossible. This area is so ass backward, being anywhere else is just plain weird.

    To everyone else, hating the Hispanics in Hazleton is a very widespread belief. Considering this a very white area, a lot of older residents truly believe that minorities are bringing drugs and trouble into the area. They might be partially right but I know far more white people dealing drugs than minorities.

    If you live in a lower economic area you are probably going to live near loud, uncouth folk with crappy cars & tons of relatives--across racial lines, mind you. I know a ton of white folks I would absolutely not want to live near. I live in a MUCH better neighborhood now than the one I grew up in & the biggest difference between them is economic, not so much racial.

    We don`t have hispanics here (only seen one in all my years and she was only half), but I`d say that`d be an acceptable loss to stay hispanic free.

    Hazleton really is a crap hole. If you`re white you`re on disability, if your Latino you deal drugs, and if you`re black... I don`t think black people live in Hazleton. I mean a couple dozen black people may live there. There is not a single Asian, or Jew (due to the lack of business). It`s mostly fat white people and drug dealing Mexicans. Seriously, I can`t make this stuff up.

    PTPete "If you live in a lower economic area you are probably going to live near loud, uncouth folk with crappy cars & tons of relatives--across racial lines, mind you"
    Bull Pucky! First of all, I don`t live in "lower economic area". It`s average middle class. It`s the damn mexians that are low class. My dad`s people are all trailer trash, but even they don`t behave that way. They don`t pile car seats on the porch and shoot their guns in the air.

    Maybe it`s because they`re used to three families in one apartment that they just don`t understand the concept of respecting other peoples space, I don`t know. But the white, black, and asian neighbors all agree on this one. In fact, hating the mexicans has really crossed racial boundaries and brought us closer together.

    I got family in that area, it is a typical attitude around there. Anyone remember in 2008 when teenagers killed an immigrant in Shenandoah, it`s like 10 minutes from there.

    People seem to have misread this article. He did not say "Hispanics"; he said "the Hispanics".

    In other words he is talking about specific people who are Hispanic. Nowhere is it suggested that (a) he dislikes all Hispanics or (b) he dislikes them because they are Hispanic. He doesn`t even say he dislikes them because they are illegal immigrants that have brought aspects of their culture that disrupt his life, which would be a fair point.

    You guys are thinking too big; he is a small-town guy, talking about specific people he encounters regularly.

    No matter what you might believe - that guy is the silent majority. I hear the "Hispanic" comment more and more.... people are getting tired of leeches sucking them dry. It`s getting to the boiling point and when it does, it`s not going to be pretty.

    The guy is right. The Hispanics and negroes move in and the neighborhood goes to poo. No need to be a member of the klan to see the truth.
