14. I'm sorry to have to say this, but the scenario is so racist it boggles the mind. Additionally...

California was settled by Spain, as was Florida ó and Texas, Arizona, New Mexico, Colorado, Utah, and Nevada.

The Spanish Empire extended into the Caribbean and the Pacific, as well, not just Mexico, Central America, and South America. Thus the Spanish language, you see? Brazil only speaks Portuguese because the Pope at the time was asked to intervene between between Spain and Portugal and divvied up South America.

The United States purchased some territory, took some territory as spoils of war, and seized some. Some have been states so long that white Americans appear to be completely clueless... But our country, our government, we have a responsibility for the territories we hold, and if the people are poor and ill-educated thatís on us. If the people are brown, take it up with God Almighty and donít set about planning for cultural extinction. We have enough of that in our history.
