Oh, I'm not denying it does. It's just not as easily found here. The only time I ever interact with hispanics is at work, and only a handful of the 75-100 that work here are actually Mexican. I can't imagine that it's just that they don't want to work here - there simply aren't as many.

It's different here, or at least in my particular neighborhood. I have the privilege of living in a predominantly hispanic area of Boston. I don't really see overt displays of "Anahuac" ideologies--just a general unwillingness to assimilate or identify oneself as American or at least "Mexican-America", rather than purely Mexican.

I think part of it is a cultural thing. I am actually 1/2 Mexican by blood and I know my relatives in the Southwest struggle to hold on to their cultural identity. They're upset my branch of the family has lost touch of our "Mexican-ness," they call us "pochos," and speak spanish around us to mock that we never learned our native language. It's kind of silly.

On the other hand the Latinos I live around do display a obvious disdain for the police and the government. They seem to think their marginalized, but really I think that comes from the unwillingness to assimilate. If you're not going to act like an American (which doesn't mean completely abandoning your heritage) why would you expect to be treated like one?

Chill out. I wasn't saying it exists or not, I don't know, I'll take your word for it.
