Hey, Donald? This is what a real Mexican Immigrant looks like



Nora D. Volkow, M.D., became Director of the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) at the National Institutes of Health in May 2003. NIDA supports most of the world’s research on the health aspects of drug abuse and addiction.



Dr. Volkow’s work has been instrumental in demonstrating that drug addiction is a disease of the human brain. As a research psychiatrist and scientist, Dr. Volkow pioneered the use of brain imaging to investigate the toxic effects and addictive properties of abusable drugs. Her studies have documented changes in the dopamine system affecting, among others, the functions of frontal brain regions involved with motivation, drive, and pleasure in addiction. She has also made important contributions to the neurobiology of obesity, ADHD, and aging.

Dr. Volkow was born in Mexico, attended the Modern American School, and earned her medical degree from the National University of Mexico in Mexico City, where she received the Robins award for best medical student of her generation. Her psychiatric residency was at New York University, where she earned the Laughlin Fellowship Award as one of the 10 Outstanding Psychiatric Residents in the USA.

1. My dear Xipe Totec...

Donald would probably say she's an outlier.

If he bothered to say anything...

2. No, he'd say it was a lie

and he'd say it at full blast, the way he says all the other stupid stuff that roars out of his big mouth.

8. Alfredo Quinones-Hinojosa Another outlier

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alfredo_Quinones-Hinojosa




Alfredo Quiñones-Hinojosa (also known as "Dr. Q" is a physician, author, and researcher. He practices neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital and runs a basic science research lab out of Johns Hopkins Hospital. Quiñones is Director of the Brain Tumor Surgery Program at Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center, Director of the Pituitary Surgery Program at Johns Hopkins Hospital and the Director of the Brain Tumor Stem Cell Laboratory at Johns Hopkins School of Medicine. In addition to being a professor of neurosurgery, neuroscience, oncology, and cellular and molecular medicine, Quiñones is also the author of the newly released book, Becoming Dr Q.

He's not blond, so perhaps that better fits the expectations of some of the replies I'm seeing...

7. Like me?

Is that what you're saying?

Is that the best message you can draw from my post?

Don't even bother then.

4. I'm not sure this is a good way to go.

So if they look blonde and American it is all ok?

No, this is not the way it should go.

6. Is that the best you can do?

That's pathetic.

I'm sorry we don't fit your stereotype of what Mexicans ought to look like.

12. Funny Story...

I have a cousin. Born in Veracruz, she considers herself a Xarocha. A native of the Huasteca region of Mexico.

Her father was one of the most famous and respected orthopedic surgeons in Mexico. He is world renowned for having reconstructed, piece by piece, the legs of a Mexican reporter; victim of a horrific plane crash.

Her father, my uncle, is of Belgian descent.

She, is blond, blue eyed, and drop dead gorgeous.

But she does not see herself that way.

She is third generation Mexican and proud of it beyond comprehension.

She now lives in the USA, and after a painful and drawn out divorce, to another Mexican, a Chrysler executive, the chief designer of the PT Cruiser, she was back in the singles market, looking for another mate...

She met, online, with an Indian executive. Rich, powerful, and prejudiced...

On their first date, he went out of his way to tell her how much he despised Mexicans for being lazy freeloading bums...

She became incensed and told him to reconsider his remarks; that she was also a Mexican, and proud of it.

He said: "Yes, but you don't look like a Mexican".

She got up, told him to go fuck himself, and left.

This petite girl, blond, blue eyed, and white, took mortal offense at being told she did not look Mexican.

That's my girl.

And I love her for it.
