I base things off what I see everyday. If we base everything from tv, things might get skewed a little. I do not see black people being lazy in my everyday life. Probably because where I have lived most of my life, there werent a lot of black people. However, my best friend is black, from Africa, lived in Paris and moved to America in 1999. And he has lived in the same apartment for 13 years, and works two jobs for as long as I can remember.

Mexicans on the other hand, I have been around all my life, and i can honestly say, I can not remember the last time I saw a non-Mexican cleaning a hotel room or mowing a lawn. I worked in the hotel business for 9 years and I have owned a home for 4 years.
