A big problem the Mexicans had is that prior to the white Americans migrating to the southwest, the Comanche's routinely raided into Mexico, plundering, killing and taking slaves (yes, that's right). The Mexicans were unable to deal with the problem. Only when the Texicanos (gingos in Texas) arrived, and dealt with the Comanche's in two generations was the Mexican's problem solved, giving rise to a new problem: wounded sense of "machismo".
