This writer believes that Tejanos hate Hispanos (from New Mexico) and vice versa. I think they probably do hate Tejanos, but we don’t give them hardly any thought. I think most Tejanos would not even flinch if someone said they were from New Mexico. Although the same probably could not be said about a New Mexican (except for most retailers, who love to have Tejano tourists!) I think New Mexico is pretty cool, lot a culture, etc. Don’t HATE my big ‘ol STATE! Isn’t Max Baca from New Mexico? So it can’t be all bad! lol
