Hoopy Frood: There have been about ten times as many Major League baseball players born in either the Dominican Republic, Venezuela or Puerto Rico than were born in Mexico.


Wait, those aren't parts of Mexico? I thought those were the Estatos or whatever they have.

Magnanimous_J: WienerButt: the hierarchy within Hispanics is funny

What is it?


I don't know, but I knew a Cuban guy who really really hated people from El Salvador. As a white southerner who's used to tiptoeing around topics of race most of the time, I was shocked to hear someone say all that stuff to an acquaintance casually and, as I recall, apropos of nothing. It just seemed so random to me. Not that I think all Cubans hate everyone from El Salvador, but that was his thesis statement, and he expounded upon it.

jst3p: ringersol: doubled99: "Uh..no. It isn't. Usually."

That was the point. The jackass I was replying to stated that latino stereotypes were accurate reflections of the culture.
And they're not. They never are. Stereotypes are intentionally cherry-picked to emphasis desired characteristics to push a given point.

That's not the way it usually works. If the stereotype weren't generally true it wouldn't get repeated. As I said before, there is a good reason no one jokes about how bad asian kids are at math tests. There are exceptions but in general there has to be some truth to it in order for it to take off.


That's not PC.

WienerButt: Magnanimous_J: WienerButt: the hierarchy within Hispanics is funny

What is it?

Spain > South America > Caribbean and Central America... and then it gets even trickier when you break it down. People from Uruguay are the least mixed and are generally considered white. Argentina has a heavy European influence, specifically Italian, etc.

The countries with the most mixtures of native American are considered 'campesino' or hick (ie Guatemala , Nicaragua.) Individual countries will break it down within themselves, even. Colombia has two beauty pageants; one for blacks and one for whites. The list goes on. Most Hispanics do not like Puerto ricans, especially cubans. Not sure what the beef is there. The animosity I see is geared toward their dialect and vernacular, it is seen as uneducated.

*these are all observations and not taken as truth

So is the culture of white people also defined by the poor, the criminal and those with the most menial jobs?

Uh..no. It isn't. Usually. Are you ignorant of pop culture?
Usually a stereotypical "white person" reference would be a preppy, uptight middle class Buffy or Skip type with a sweater tied around their shoulders.
Interesting, isn't it?

jshine: Sultan_Azteca: Dow Jones and the Temple of Doom: I love how people always refer to Selma Hayek as an icon of Mexican beauty, as if she's in any way representative of your typical squatty Mestizo. She's half European half Middle Eastern.

By your logic, Pocahontas should be representative of US beauty. European features are not native anywhere in the American continent, not in the US, not in Canada, either. Latin America is a melting pot as well.

Sure, I'm "American" (by birth & passport), but my genes are basically German & British.


Which was my point. Salma's (old) passport read "Mexican" by birth, but with beautifully blessed Spanish and Lebanese roots.

Bashar and Asma's Infinite Playlist: ringersol: So is the culture of white people also defined by the poor, the criminal and those with the most menial jobs?
Because I'm picturing a "White Day" at the same high school where all of those same stereotypical costumes would apply (pregnant teens, gang members, landscapers, etc) and the only difference would be that instead of INS 'arresting mexican students', the kids dressed up as INS agents would be *shaking down* mexican students.

It would be hilarious on "White Day" if the latino kids showed up with pink polo shirts with the collars popped, frosted tips, and kept using street slang with awkward, squeaky white voices. They could knock the books out of the actual white kids' hands and then high-five each other down the hallway, while saying "brah" every few seconds and cursing out their parents who just don't understand that they need this year's BMW model.


That would be farking HILARIOUS!

Jim_Callahan: jaytkay: They train their bigots from a very young age in Orange County, don't they.

Well, it was the school's official "dress as a hispanic stereotype" day, that's explicitly what they were telling the kids to do.

Not really the kids' fault that many stereotypes aren't particularly complimentary. Mexico is a ridiculous stereotype of misogyny and plutocracy even today, and a good-sized chunk of central/south America is ruled by communist dictators, not really good associations there culturally speaking.

I mean, you could specify fancy sombreros and big skirts, but the historical period that's referencing had a literal aristocracy that made no effort whatsoever to allow the 99.9% of the population that were peasants even basic sustenance. The history of the Spanish colonies was a lot darker than that of the English ones.

//Well, US Civil War aside, that one was nastier than most of the other wars in the new world, mainly since the industrial revolution met warfare for the first time.

Stereotypes are grounded from statistical fact. Hope your political correctness gets you through life unscathed.

Lemme know how the dirt tastes when you have your head buried down there.

Spoken like true basura blanca :)

Me dices de que sabor es la tierra cuando te sacas tu cabeza de aya bajo.

Vez? Yo tambien puedo jugar ese pinche juego que ustedes, los gringos, les gustan jugar mucho.

Yeah, I'm white trash. White trash that learned Spanish so I could talk to all the illegals on my jobsite. So I appreciate your assumption that we're all uneducated. At least I took the time to learn a language before thinking about storming the border.

It's quite amusing on my sites when the Jose's assume I'm just another idiot, just like you.

Now go mow my lawn, Pendejo.

1. So you admit to hiring illegals? Did you know that you're the problem when it comes to illegal immigration? Stop hiring them and they won't come over. You're welcome.

2. I never assumed you were uneducated or an idiot. Projection much? You're welcome.

3. English is my second language, but I get I speak it more better then you. Your welcome.

4. Your sites? And I prefer Pepe's, thank you very much.

5. I don't mow lawns, gabacho. I fix networks. Oh, mow your lawn. Euphemism for doing your mom? As you know, English is my second language...

Sincerely,

Charlie Chingas

U.S Marine Corps Vet, 0311


I don't hire them, I have to work around them.

You fix networks? Wow! So that means you're not part of the stereotype, congrats! Still doesn't mean it isn't true to the other 99% that hang drywall or paint my house.

Unless since you work in networks you've become some 280 lb monstrosity that showers every 2 weeks, but thats a whole nother stereotype in its own right.

You can be pissed all you want, but just because you're one guy that pushed himself above all others; doesn't mean there isn't thousands behind you that don't fit the caricatures presented here. Maybe instead of getting pissed at those that recognize it, you could be constructive in helping your illegal brethren adapt a bit better to our society, instead of alienating themselves even further.
