I am not at all Mexican and I'd willing to be caught in a box for the right tacos.

Some 'Splainin' To Do: Loadmaster: "Just so happens we used tacos because we have a Mexican restaurant."

Some 'Splainin' To Do: There's no meta-humor in a shirt like this. We're not supposed to be laughing at the stupidity of the idea of setting up traps for immigrants, we are supposed to be laughing at the actual people because they're a bunch of stupid beaners who can't resist tacos or figure their way out of a box. Now do you get it?

So are we saying that Mexicans are the only folks that like tacos?

Ah, the ever popular coy gambit.

"Why, how in the world can this be only directed at Mexicans? Everyone likes Tacos! Oh... and those colors? Sure, the Mexican flag has them too, but who doesn't like the colors red, white and green? The fact that you think that this is about Mexicans just proves that you're a racist!"


I think the funniest example of real, accidental racism I have ever seen was an article wherein the author stated it was racist for a white woman to use the hashtag #thuglife.

I lol'd so hard.

So if an Italian restaurant had baited their illegal immigrant trap with a pizza, no one would be calling them racists, right?

It shows. Net time use an em-dash (i.e. "--") for sentence fragments that follow on an idea.

My usage was perfect. Consult any major grammar reference.


You are incorrect; the proper usage of a semicolon requires that it precede a complete sentence that is intimately connected with what it precedes.

Something tells me you're not quoting White. Moreover, you aren't drawing adequate contrast between what I actually wrote and the stated rule. You may opine that the ideas are not intimately connected. I contend that they are, and that you are only being contrary. I think most would agree.

Also, "x."


I was only trying to help you understand that you must have a complete sentence follow a semicolon, not a sentence fragment. Feel free to do whatever you wish, but I'll always know that you never learned proper punctuation. There's no particular reason why that should bother you, of course.


To what fragment are you referring, precisely?

This is another variation of the coy gambit: "Well gee, nobody is the least bit sensitive about Italian immigration, these days! What possible reason could Mexicans have for being sensitive? What a bunch of crybabies!"

And the super-fun thing about the coy gambit is that both sides are perfectly aware of the subtext, but we're, for some reason, supposed to ignore all that and pretend that some sort of valid point has been scored.

I was perilously close to defending the shirt - after all they are "Taco" Cid's. Then you mentioned the use of the colors of the Mexican flag, so yeah, pretty much removes all doubt that they are targeting a particular group of illegals. I wouldn't have thought the shirt funny anyway, but yeah, this be bigoted.. *sigh*... I'm glad I bred a Mexican woman.. and my kids can enjoy all the benefits of white privilege with none of the guilt!

ManRay: When you become a legal US citizen, do you all of the sudden lose your taste for tacos?.


Yes.

Part of the citizenship process involves a surgical operation that renders your taste buds not only to no longer register the deliciousness of perfectly-made tacos, but to cause total rejection of their spice and flavor. On the other hand, the procedure also makes it that you prefer bland, chemically-injected fast food, and another surgical procedure (more akin to brain surgery, mind you) makes you more susceptible to watch reality tv shows, and Dane Cook/Carlos Mencia shows.

I think there'll be lots of cases of mistaken identities since tacos aren't exclusively enjoyed by Mexicans. If I saw a taco just lying on the floor, I'd probably have a go.

The Angry Hand of God: [giovanniworld.files.wordpress.com image 487x640]


It's all over this thread, but I'm singling you out, sombrero picture guy.

Where did the conceit that Mexicans and only Mexicans can roll food inside tortillas come from? I don't usually pay attention to this shiat, but you know who's in the kitchen at McDonald's? Mexicans. Applebee's? Mexicans. Barbecue? Mexicans. Fried chicken? Mexicans. Chinese food? Mexicans. And I don't even live in Texas anymore.

Why the fark are Mexicans tolerated in every single cuisine but a guy named Matt from Arizona can't make a motherfarking taco without you throwing some racist shiat at him?

Is there some special quality about being named Kenichi that makes you good at sushi? Is it the same thing that makes him good at karate?

My mother who is an otherwise pleasant woman has quite a few bigoted views which drives me absolutely nuts. She pretty much ALWAYS prefaces one of her rants with that line.

Makes her look a total idiot but she's old so what can you do. After years of me shaming her on her use of the words "darky" and "Paki (which she uses to describe anybody from the middle east... including India)" she's a little better but with all the hateful crap that's started becoming acceptable in the media because of the wars and the Obama haters it's bubbling back to the surface.

It makes me very sad.

shiattynick: In Charleston, SC, one of the big draws is the slave market; it's the actual market on the waterfront where the slaves were unloaded off of the newly arrived ships and sold to their new owners.

Incorrect. The slave market, or "City Market," is where slaves sold things. The place where slaves were sold is a different spot, without all the crap salesmen, known as "The Old Slave Mart." It is on (Superintendent) Chalmers Street.

Incorrect. The Charleston City Market was, and is, simply a public market. People started incorrectly calling it the slave market and the name stuck.

You are correct about The Old Slave Mart.
