Mexicans invading the beach!
As I've written many times before, the most-asked question in ¡Ask a Mexican! history has been why Mexicans swim with their clothes on. Instead of offering a ponderous answer in the video version of my columna, I decided to go short--and incredibly graphic.

Enjoy!

Another burning question for Gustavo:  Why do Mexicans at the beach love to set free their empty plastic grocery bags and watch them fly away in the breeze? It may be a poor-man's kite to some, but to swimmers and sea turtles it's another thing altogether.

I did not read article, however I am curious as to why SOME Mexican women in Chicago wear fuzzy printed pajamas pants to the grocery store. I am simply inquiring, not judging.

So, what I'm gleaning from your response is that you believe people who are intellectually inferior to you are outsmarting a system you haven't figured out. So, you're dumber than what you consider dumb. So, you're not racist. You're jealous.

For the same reason they throw their toilet paper in the trash and have staring problems: Because they're retards. Why not ask a more legitimate question: How are they able to sneak across the border and settle up with entitlement programs, and why isn't the government doing anything about it? Guys with IQ's of fucking, 26, still be able to game the system to their advantage.

It's pretty much an overweight Latino thing. In my case it's a Casper the friendly ghost syndrome

According to officials, more non Mexicans swim with their clothes on than do Mexicans. So, the question should be rephrased to "Why [do] non-Mexicans Swim With Their Clothes On?"

I wore jeans to the beach when I was a teen...I suppose I was just a little self-conscious. Of course, folks of my ancestry only freckle and burn in the sun so perhaps I was wise beyond my years? ha ha :-D
