stirfrybry: updated version should have the mexican guy left headless with a note from drug cartel


As long as the note had excellent spelling and grammar, I don't see how it could be offensive.

This is from a Mexican restaurant down the street. He's not sleeping but it's still kind of racist?

What is this "Stereotype" that y'all speak of? May I try it?

All mexicans are happy, sleepy, larcenous, and Roman Catholic. Their farts also smell like tacos and beans. Some of their women are very hot. Others are not.

Arkanaut: Walker: You said "Polack" instead of "Polish person"?

Does anyone still say that these days? In any case I think the proper demonym is "Pole".

I'm confused by this. I worked with a polish developer who insisted that he be called pollack.


I worked with an Italian whom we called "Wop".

So it should be replaced with the image of a cartel thug armed with a machete and an AR-15. That would be more modern-like.

Got that covered: Two Englishmen, two Irishmen and two Scotsmen are on a plane that crashes on a deserted island. A year after the crash the two Scotsmen have found a clear stream and have set up a still, the two Irishmen are still on the beach fighting with each other, and the two Englishmen are still waiting to be formally introduced.

Studebaker made a super stripped-down cheap version of their President line, and named it The Scotsman. The Scotsman had plain metal bumpers, no trim to speak of, cardboard doorpanels, and no radio or automatic transmission available; even the heater was extra cost!

fireclown: I was stationed at Schofield Barracks, HI back in the 80s. During my time there, Marcos was housed at the Air Force Base across the street. Hawaii has a large and opinionated Philipino community, so they protested regularly. But here is the thing: when Philipinos protest your location, they show up on time, don't threaten anyone, and leave the place cleaner than they found it. Best protesters you could ask for.


Sounds like Occupy could really use a lot of them.

It is fun. Especially when it's all in fun and the group stereotyped doesn't give a shiat, like the Irish.
They'll make the same jokes with you.
By the way, stereotypes mean many or a large percentage of the group. Not everyone in the group.

ATRDCI: The only people I know who still use polack are family members, who are, well, Polish. About half the time its used a bit insultingly but more of " that person is a dumb old fart who happens to be polish" as opposed to an epitaph epithet on the level of say n*****


FTFY. Epitaph is the descriptive blurb on a tombstone - "loving husband", "brave soldier", "cheap crack whore" - that sort of thing. Thought you should know.

Dr.Zom: New Racist Sterotype: Mexican guys are good drivers,

When in I was in LA I noticed every Mexican guy I saw was a good driver. Noticed it all the way back to KC as I drove through the southwest and even here, too.


Except the one that drove through a tent trailer I had just sold. Had to give the buyer his money back. LAPD refused to cite the driver that totalled the trailer because he didn't have a license and wasn't in the country legally, therefore there was nothing they could do. Western California's one giant derpfest...

Then there's "Red Dot Indians." . . . self explanatory. I guess you could say "Convenience Store Indians or Motel Indians.


With a former boss in Oklahoma, I had this actual conversation:

Boss: What's that pin on your lapel?
Me: Seal of the Cherokee Nation. I'm indian.

FTFA: "The portrayal of an Indian as being lazy and dumb and stupid is what it depicts,"

I thought it was a Mexican... That's wrong for another reason too... Even the ones we call Indians, aren't Indians. Considering everyone knows they were native Americans before us Europeans came here, then named them incorrectly, I sort of wonder why people still insist on calling them Indians.

You may not recall, since it was common before many of you were born, but the biggest racial group that was lampooned in cartoons, commercials, movies, newspaper comics and advertising images was WHITE.

White people made fun of themselves in all forms of media. Some were famous for portraying 'cowardly' traits (Don Knotts -- even before Mayberry.) Foster Brooks -- who I doubt if any of you recall, was a comedienne -- White -- whose act was built around his acting drunk all of the time.

The Three Stooges were wildly successful in portraying characters that made Whites look incompetent, clumsy, cowardly, lazy and ignorant.

I recall funny charactures of Irishmen, Scotsmen, Englishmen and even Canadian that no one considered offensive.

For every single race that was lampooned in a negative way, White people had a hundred versions of themselves. From car dealers to bar keepers, from Cowboys to cops and even 'Joe average citizen'.

Yes, there have been and are stereotypical images used in a deliberately negative and racist way, usually by racist or political groups, but there's a big difference in how they are intended to promote a message.
I recall seeing WW2 portrayals of Jews from Germany and some propaganda mills in the US depicting them has horrible, ugly and sinister people. I also recall posters depicting the Japanese and Germans as subhuman killers.

Different meanings. Different situations.

None of those images would be placed on businesses today to draw in customers. However, a goofy looking cowboy or fat, greasy-looking truck driver would.

I recall diners displaying cartoons of big, greasy looking cooks, in soiled white aprons, stogie stuck in the corner of a wide mouth, two day stubble on their faces, arms hairy, wearing an old soiled white Navy cloth cap and sporting anchor tattoos.

I don't suppose anyone recalls the cook and owner of the restaurant in the old TV show 'Alice', where the main character was a single mom waitress? It was a comedy.

Times change. Entire generations mature and grow. People need to get over themselves and realize that not every unflattering characterization of any people of any race was always negative. Mostly, it was innocent humor and NOT designed to slander.

We have tons of advertisements from decades ago which today, while innocent enough in their creation, are considered in poor taste and no longer used. Especially those used to sell patent medicines. Some are very artistic and well done, but the actions they depicted are not appropriate for today -- but no one considers then racist.

There was a trend of taking pictures of deceased loved ones, usually posed with a family group, and especially children. That was not considered offensive. Just creepy.

Families used to have a lot of images of their very young kids nude taking baths or playing -- where today such images can get you considered as a sex offender. Such images were not considered offensive or sexual back then.

Anyone recall the newspaper cartoon, 'Snuffy Smith' which portrayed a back woods, WHITE family? It later led to the comic strip called 'Lil Abner' which later became a stage play and a series of animated cartoons.

Snuffy and his wife were not portrayed as folks you'd like as neighbors and they epitomized the worst of 'Hillbillies' -- but it was funny. It was a joke. Snuffy was drunk much of the time off moonshine, irritable, tended to shoot at folks with his old long rifle and get into fist fights.

The strip was NOT considered racist or offensive. Probably because the characters depicted were WHITE.
If you want to get real technical about it, 'Peanuts' the long running comic strip was offensive because Charlie Brown, no matter what he did, was bullied and ridiculed by his friends and even his dog.

Folks need to get over themselves.

The image portrayed in the article was taken from an actual practice in Mexico, where people, during the searing heat of the middle of the day took a 'siesta' because everyone found it too unpleasant to work through the nearly lethal noon period. The big, often colorful straw hats were a clever way to deal with the heat -- often better than the Cowboy hats, made of dense felt. White or unbleached clothing reflected the heat and it's looseness allowed ventilation to cool the body.

There are many times when folks should actually take pride in a lampoon of themselves.

Grow the f**k up!

Can we wait until whatever race (Mexicans in this case) starts complaining? Instead of white people making themselves honorary (whatever) and making noise? Because if indios are anything like indians they probably don't complain or even notice.

If some school had the "Complaining Mexicans" as a mascot, would it be okay because it's not a racial stereotype?

And more importantly, would anyone falling into the stereotype trap of complaining about it?

Actually very many Mexicans are. From Wikipedia:

The majority of the indigenous population is concentrated in the central and southern states. According to the CDI, the states with the greatest percentage of indigenous population are:[23]

Yucatán, 59%
Oaxaca, 48%
Quintana Roo, 39%
Chiapas, 28%
Campeche, 27%
Hidalgo, 24%
Puebla, 19%
Guerrero, 17%
San Luis Potosí, 15%
Veracruz, 15%

Calling a warrior "brave" is the same as a civilian falsely claiming to be a Seal?
