I hate norteno music, after having it shoved in my ears as a kid. I'm pretty sure that's why el polaco's acquaintences of Mexican descent can't stand it either.
Gustavo, PLEASE look up the word "Conquest." Mexico (Atzlan) has been occupied not conquested.
OMG! This is being forwarded to everyone I know. Great stuff. I'm laughing my cula off.
huh give me your tired your corr but follow how to become a citizen and go through the proper paper work.When you don't and border cross it's cost the american taxpayers huge money,We are not pissed at you personally go through the right way!! not fence or border jumping..
Bah. The question about wrought-iron fences is interesting, and Gustavo just sidesteps it with some catchy verbiage about the border fence. There's got to be more to it than that. How about the structure of one's property in Mexico? How do people there delimit their space from their neighbors'? Is it a cultural transference that takes place within the limits of the existing US designs of residential property? I guess I shouldn't expect academic serious and deep detail from a humor column...but still!!!
I see nothing offensive about this column. In fact, I look forward to a weekly read of my Mexican stereotype friend lampooning other stereotypes to his heart's content. It's called a sense of humour, and if you have one I guarantee you'll live longer.
Poor PUPITO. Life is hard without a sense of humor.
Ever heard of Satire, folks?
"so when the time comes to take over..." Im sure that the FBI is keeping track of everyone who makes subversive comments like that!
the truth that this vato( arellano)spews is a refreshing weekly column that i enjoy immensly.He is articulate and comical and right to the point.As to it being racist,is the furthest thing from the truth that anybody can accuse him of.So gabachos and pochos that dont agree with him? dont read his column.. period.
I find this weekly column very entertaining and comical, but of course very opinionated by the writer.
Perhaps if he is so gifted with his insight to ethnic problems he should run for president in 2012....that is if he is a legal natural born American citizen.
Why do you continue to have this blatantly racist article week after week? El unico pendejo es el Gustavo Arellano! Que muchacho tan mas baboso! Las mismas chingaderas semana por semana! Puras pendejadas!
I like stores that have the speakers blaring loud music on streetfronts. Reminds me of life in Los Angeles, how much I loved living there, how much I want to move back.
You make absolutely No sense
First half kind of funny second half snivel snivel waste of electricity. Can't wait until the brown or half brown such as my self become a majority in AZ and people can bitch about something other than discrimination. Really most boil down to class war not race here in Tucson. I work hard, have 3 jobs, and make a good living so that means I took advantage of someone else right?
Thanks again for one of the most entertaining and surreptitiously informative columns around.
Well, Pupito, looks like you got your letter in, signed as "Not a pendejo". The Mexican could well have responded to the letter with your post here, but it wouldn't have been as funny or educational. That's why he gets paid to write and you don't.
I love the Raza studies plug. Can't call Mexican studies ethnic studies unless there is only one ethnicity. My Greatgrandmother was from mexico and grandfather was from spain. Strangely today I my wife and my new baby boy are all Americans. Don't know how that happenned oh wait my family worked to hard to care what lineage we belong to and focused on making a better life for ourselves and are family.
What a hate filled racist waste of bandwidth! Ya basta con este pinche cabron pendejo! Puras chingaderas todos los Jueves! LLoron!
He thinks he is funny hah. I just had to cut and paste his answer about why he hates Guatemalans too. I love how he brings skin color into it. He doesn't seem to have a sense of humor over hate towards mexicans I notice.
It really must be an inferiority complex because all the Guatemalans I know don't hate anybody except maybe their own corrupt government. They put their heads down, work had, make their way and don't complain about their problems for the most part.
"Mexicans despise Guatemalans for many legitimate reasons. Your tamales are better--our puny corn variety doesn't compare to your wondrous paches, potato tamales stuffed with chicken that are just about the most filling, tasteful snack in the Americas. The Mayans contributed more to world culture than the Aztecs--did you know the Mayan calendar remains the most accurate in history? Your national bird, the long-feathered quetzal, is prettier than our golden eagle. In 1821, free from the yoke of Spanish rule, Guatemala joined the burgeoning empire of Mexico--only to spurn us two years later for the United Provinces of Central America, a coalition of Central American nations created to resemble the United States but whose corruption and monocultural economics instead inspired the term "banana republic."
But Mexicans hate Guatemalans mostly because of immigration, Guapo. Mexico can barely control its southern border with Guatemala, because the Guatemalan government does nada to secure its side, leaving Mexico exposed to illegal immigrants, drug runners and terrorists. And the Guatemalans who do cross over dress funny, are darker-skinned than the average Mexican and don't like salsa! Guatemalans are the Mexicans of Mexico--and who doesn't hate Mexicans? "
