    Thats why... is not fair, in my Mexican opinion.

  3. It's simple.....t seems that mexicans are offended because if you show the american guy bigger as the mexican people in Mexico can uderstand this as they are showing mexicans as inferior persons if you compared directly with the tall american guy..... Mexicans don't want to feel as america's backyard
