    Why do mexicans stare at me?

    Though some of you may call me a racist, the fact is I'm just making an observation.

    This happens often when I'm in a public place: the grocery store, the mall, on the street. They do it in packs and it makes me uncomfortable.

    For whatever reason, Hispanics feel the need to stare at me.
    It's as if they've never seen a white person before.
    I can understand starring at some 'hot mama' as I sometimes do. But they regularly stare at me :I'm just a normal white guy. I've talked to other people and they have shared with me a similar experience. It's quite creepy.

    They usually have a disgustingly smug look on their face, as if to say "hey buddy, how do you like it now, we are in your country, and there's nothing you can do about it."

    I'm not saying its all Hispanics, just many of them.

    Are Hispanics genetically programmed to stare at you personally ?

    Barring the contingency that you're wearing one of those Groucho Marx plastic-nose-moustache-and-eyeglasses things, I have no idea why they stare.

    Are you sure it isn't just a cultural thing -- they stare at people and this makes Anglos uncomfortable?

    Could be just a cultural thing. I know asian men can sit quite close to each other and even put their arms around each others shoulders. It's just cultural upbringing , but it makes many white hetro's uncomfortable.

    What part of the country are you from? We have a ton of Hispanics in Chicago (and I went to college in AZ) and I have never felt anything like that.

    Can't say i share in the experience. Of course, i live in a town with a large Hispanic population, so maybe i just am used to it. As for them doing it, i think it could be many things. Boredom perhaps. For the one below the poverty line like the day laborers, perhaps a feeling of envy or discomfort because some may feel that it isn't fair that they work themselves so hard and still struggle while you have a great job and home. Or perhaps one of many other reasons.

    Possibly cultural, mostly anglo cultures see staring as impolite, but it may be different in others. If the groups are mostly young men, they may just be pureposefully impolite or trying to look tough.

    Hmmm....
    Maybe it's because you're looking at them in a hostile way, without even being aware of it?

    lol.

    Compugasm, when someone dies, it's on your conscience.

    @OP
    I have noticed no such thing. Maybe you're staring too?
