Actually Whites have been marrying Mexicans since the "Cowboy Days". I blogged about this the other day on another thread on the DR. The offspring of these marital unions are usually quite handsome.
I myself have had children with a brown woman. My son looks like Michael Corleone. I worry more about him getting a girl pregnant than him fitting into mainstream American society. He's gonna do just fine.
Sheriff Pat Garret was Sheriff here in Dona Ana county where I live, and is buried here in the Las Cruces Masonic cemetery. He married a local Mexican girl.
This is from Wikipedia:
"When Garrett arrived at Fort Sumner, New Mexico, he found work as a cowboy for Pedro Menard "Pete" Maxwell (18481898). He married Juanita Gutierrez, who died giving birth to their child. He did not remain a widower long though, and on January 14, 1880, Garrett married Apolinaria Gutierrez (18621936), the 17-year-old sister of his first wife. Between 1881 and 1905 Apolinaria Garrett gave birth to eight children, named Ida, Dudley, Elizabeth, Annie, Patrick, Pauline, Oscar and Jarvis."
His descendants are here to this day.
And the Duke, John Wayne had 3 Hispanic wives. How much more Ooomurican can ya get!??!
I'm not gonna criticize Tom Brokaw. Like a lot of celebrities, he's lived a very insular, elite life. He's just a little out of touch on how things are, and have been for some time. Americans are just doing what they have been doing for generations.
