Comment Archives: stories: News & Opinion: Ask a Mexican!

Re: “Ask a Mexican!

Back here in real life, mine has been enriched by a few of those immigrants who worked hard, long and smart without forgetting to enjoy life. Am I being racist in thinking people with whom I have many differences can be a source of important learning? I think, rather, that people like Bslap just don't enjoy the fact they are not the sole crown of creation.

Re: “Ask a Mexican!

Seems like your racism has toned down a little in the last 5 years. I just picture all the little white liberals lapping it up and asking you for more.
Pro tip: most Mexicans aren't racist, so don't let this one example start a stereotype.

Re: “Ask a Mexican

Where does LULAC say that? I'm only seeing right-wing links with no citations when I google the phrase.

Re: “Ask a Mexican

"Mexicans don't find it racist or exclusionary, because it isn't. (Viva La Raza)

Sounds good, But then, answer this: Why does LULAC say,

"For those inside the race, everything. For those outside the race, nothing."

THAT seems to me exclusionary.

It also seems to be to be a pitch for political solidarity on the basis or race, or ethnicity.

What makes LULAC's pitch different from the White Supremacist groups, or Nazis?

Just asking...

Now, this is just unfair. The owners of Filoberto's are from San Luis Potosi, Mexico.

Re: “Ask a Mexican!

Argentina is the home of a great many French and Italians immigrants. Don't forget the Germans who fled there after the war. According to my Latin-American studies professor at the U of A, Argentina is not considered Latin-American because of that. Made very little sense to me at the time and still does.

Something approaching all US jobs are filled by immigrants or the descendants of immigrants.

Mick hit a nerve there. Sorry, there were never any unions at Carls Jr.
Loved it when the E-Verify law passed in AZ an there were suddenly Americans (of all colors) working in the back of the fast food places. Yeah, the capitalists moaned, but when they all had to play by the same rules they bucked up and hired legal workers.

Re: “Ask a Mexican!

I have three questions for the individuals that believe Zimmerman is guilty of murder. Number one, When Martin was punching George with his fists, and pounding his head on the pavement, does anyone know at what point in time Trayvon planned to stop his attack on Zimmerman. Second question. Lets just say that Zimmerman was killed during the assault. Would you say that it was a justified homicide on behalf of Martin for being racially profiled by Zimmerman as some people claim he was. 3rd What charges if any, do you suppose the young Trayvor would have be charged with if this was the case.

Re: “Ask a Mexican!

MGTRRZ Sorry to get you all upset if you are a homosexual, MG. Please do not do anything stupid like jumping off from a bridge. Suicide is a permanent thing. My question was specifically about the Mexican sign for saying someone is a homosexual, striking the heart a couple of times with the fist. I have observed this among Mexicans I have worked with, particularly among the ones from Mexico.
Wonderful you would think the Aztecs had a Glorious culture, but I think the Spaniards improved it by getting rid of the human sacrifices. Of course, the Aztecs sometimes sacrificed a thousand captured members of other tribes in a day at their capital city, which would not really compare in numbers with modern human sacrifices in the form of abortions, but all in all, most people even today agree that it was a disgusting practice. Cortez once remarked to Montezuma that he could not understand how someone as intelligent and fair as Montezuma was in other aspects of his life could be so stupid as to believe in human sacrifices to idols.

Re: “Ask a Mexican!

I don't know what troubles me MOST about this ^ Post (rbwinn)... Your 'feigned' supposed-interest
and pseudo-knowledge of the Aztec Civilization as to it's Ritualistic Sacrificial Ceremonies OR - Your somewhat Convoluted Connecting of this Glorious Culture to a 21st Century-Homophobic
SLUR...I SUGGEST You Attempt to Dissect the 'mystery' of 'Closeted' Clergy here in America---the likes of Ted Haggard, Eddie Long and a host laundry-list of self-hating / schizophrenic Dual-Life degenerates...Don't leave out the Mormons!

Re: “Ask a Mexican!

I just read Bernal Diaz's book, The Conquest of New Spain, in which he describes the human sacrifice priests.
"They wore their hair very long, down to the waist, with some even reaching down to the feet, covered with blood and so matted together that it could not be separated, and their ears were cut to pieces by way of sacrifice, and they stank like sulfur, and they had another bad smell like carrion, and as they said, and we learnt that it was true, these priests were the sons of chiefs and they abstained from women, but they indulged in the cursed practice of sodomy."
In comparing this information to current "scientific" interpretation, the eldest sons of Aztec rulers inherited all property and became chiefs. Younger sons were encouraged to become human sacrifice priests. So we see that eldest sons were pre-disposed to be heterosexual, and younger sons were pre-disposed to be homosexual. Something in their genetics, no doubt. Even more baffling is what happened after the conquest. Cortez told the Aztec leaders that he was sent by the king of Spain to stop all human sacrifices and sexual perversions, so after the conquest the human sacrifice priests cut their waist long hair, and blended in with the rest of the population, if not, they were executed by the Spaniards. This would seem to indicate that homosexuals of that time could stop being homosexual if threatened with death, unlike the ones today, who seem to go the other way and jump off bridges or otherwise commit suicide all over the country if they are persecuted for being homosexual.
Perhaps you could give the Mexican perspective on this. Having been a younger son myself, I think some of these Aztec younger sons might have wanted to be something other than human sacrifice priests and homosexuals, and the Mexicans I have worked with have a sign about homosexuality that involves striking the heart a couple of times with their fist to indicate their displeasure with the practice. Do you think this dates back to the Aztecs?
