I am not sure I even believe this story.
White people in Mexico City all live in the same neighborhoods, and the fact that they work on the internet means that all of the money they spend is coming into the country.
I don’t think Mexicans have a problem with this, at all, and I think the Post is trying to prevent whites from doing the obvious thing and escaping to Mexico.
An influx of Californians and other Americans has made its way to Mexico City, angering some locals who say they are gentrifying the area, according to a report.
The Los Angeles Times report on Wednesday outlined how some Mexican locals are “fed up” with the growing number of Americans, many from California, moving to and visiting the country, which has contributed to a rise in rent and a shift from Spanish to English in some places.
“New to the city? Working remotely?” Fliers popping up around Mexico City reportedly said. “You’re a f—ing plague and the locals f—ing hate you. Leave.”

The article outlines how Americans have brought a scent of “new-wave” imperialism as taquerias and corner stores have slowly transformed into coffee shops and Pilates studios.
English is also reportedly becoming more prevalent as more Americans are moving to and visiting Mexico City to take advantage of lower rent and the ability to stay in Mexico for 6 months without a visa.
“We’re the only brown people,” Fernando Bustos Gorozpe, a 38-year-old writer and university professor, told the Los Angeles Times. “We’re the only people speaking Spanish except the waiters.”
Bustos later posted a video on TikTok saying that the influx of Americans “stinks of modern colonialism” and nearly 2,000 people responded in agreement.
“Mexico is classist and racist,” Bustos added. “People with white skin are given preference. Now, if a local wants to go to a restaurant or a club, they don’t just have to compete with rich, white Mexicans but with foreigners too.”
The article also pointed to a social media post online where a young American said, “Do yourself a favor and remote work in Mexico City – is truly magical.”
The tweet received many negative responses.
“Please don’t,” one of the replies said. “This city is becoming more and more expensive every day in part because of people like you, and you don’t even realize or care about it.”
Rando social media posts.
The city is getting more expensive because whites who do not take money out of the Mexican economy are pouring money into the Mexican economy?
Please explain the math.
The Post probably made that comment themselves.
The State Department reports that there are 1.6 million Americans living in Mexico, many of them coming during the coronavirus pandemic when Mexico eased restrictions sooner than many places in the United States, but it remains unknown how many of those Americans are in Mexico City.
The Los Angeles Times says that in the first four months of this year, 1.2 million foreign visitors arrived at Mexico City’s airport.
“We’re just seeing Americans flooding in,” Alexandra Demou, who runs the relocation company Welcome Home Mexico, said. “It’s people who maybe have their own business, or maybe they’re thinking of starting some consulting or freelance work. They don’t even know how long they’re going to stay. They’re completely picking up their entire lives and just moving down here.”
Demou added that she receives 50 calls a week from people thinking about moving to Mexico City.
Yeah, I’m calling fake news.
I’m sure there are some people who think this – maybe 1 in 10,000 – and maybe the Post did real interviews. But most Mexicans are going to be friendly to you. They don’t really have a serious problem with whites.
I mean, obviously be careful, you can get robbed. Obviously. But the fact is, Mexico is 1,000 times the country America is. It is better for you and it is better for your family to live in Mexico.
It is a good Christian country, and compared to America, it is safe. But the big thing is they don’t have the gay stuff and they don’t have the women stuff. You can take your wife’s passport and bury it in a safe, and she can’t leave you.
Maybe she can go to the embassy, but you can also pay a gang to threaten her. And even if she does escape, you get to keep the kids.
I highly recommend fleeing to Mexico.
Probably not Mexico City. When the economy collapses, that is going to be a problem.
But also: Costa Rica has all these deals with America. Mexico is better. Colombia might also be better. If you’re hardcore, Cuba is probably the best, though that could turn into a real disaster.
But for the most part, Asia is over. It’s impossible to get into China. Thailand is very strict.
Latin America is the future. Or some Christian country in black Africa. These are all places for families, where they’re not trying to make your kids gay, and the idea Mexicans hate you is just a lie from people trying to trap you in America.
They should build a wall and have the US pay for it.
