big pig peaches: Lighten up.

It's no worse than the jokes on nearly every episode of "Family Guy" and farkers quote that show like gospel.


Ricky Gervais has been helpful enough to explain the difference.

When you tell an offensive joke it can be funny if the teller and the audience both realize that it's offensive and are laughing at the offensiveness, and he demonstrates it by telling an (actually funny) joke about child molestation that utilizes that sense of absurd shock.

When either the teller or the listener doesn't get that and laughs because they think that the  content of the joke is the funny part (e.g., "because [ethnic group] is so danged stupid!"), it's no longer a joke  about offensiveness, it's just an offensive joke.

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?

I think that there's a simple question that people can ask themselves before pulling the reverse racism card.

Is there an  actually hurtful racial epithet that people can throw at you (and, no, "honky" isn't a good example)? If not, then it's probably pretty easy for you to be dismissive about claims of racism and maybe you should factor that into your considerations.

When I was in school, all sorts of 'racial' jokes flew about since WW2 had ended just over a decade prior. Especially jokes concerning the Polish and Italians. (My ancestry is Spanish, Italian, Polish and German. Two of my great grand parents on either side could not speak English.)

The thing of it was, no one actually got offended. I knew a lot of Polish and Italian jokes. (How many Poles does it take to change a light bulb? 3. One to climb the ladder and hold the bulb. Two to lift and turn the ladder.)

You can't go through life without making a 'racial' joke about someone. (Chinese fire drill.) It's human nature to poke fun at other folks.

When they censored the early cartoons because of offensive depictions of blacks and Japanese, no one paid attention to the fact that the majority of 'offensive' depictions were about white folks and Americans.

Apparently, it's just fine to ridicule them. That's not racist. Look back to cartoons and movies made before the 1960's and you'll find whites and mainly Americans lampooning themselves far more than any other race or nationality.

Elmer Fudd was the epitome of the dumb white guy hunter. They lampooned door to door salesmen, slick talking car dealers, cops and especially politicians. Bugs Bunny was forever running into an oily looking magician, matre-d (sp), salesman or farmer who was determined to make his life miserable. All had big noses, slicked back oily hair and tended to resemble weasels.

All were white Americans.

They poked fun at the upper class, rail road cops, train conductors and anyone else they thought of.

No one gave a shiat.

The majority of kids who saw 'Song of the South' did not see Uncle Remus as an ex-slave, but a good natured, wise, old Black man, full of wonderful stories. They saw the Bear and wolf going after Brar'e (SP) Rabbit as backwoods hicks.

Speedy Gonzales was a Mexican hero. His career was ended because of 'racism'. Though, the cartoon was not exactly racist. He made the Mexicans look good.

Political Correctness turned into censorship real fast and folks suddenly decided that they were being made fun of because of their race or nationality.

They had to be told that.

Yosemite Sam was a Cowboy stereotype, hot tempered and quick on the trigger -- but he was white so no one cared that he was an idiot. Yet depicting an American Indian acting dumb and it was offensive.

Folks need to get over themselves. Any time you create an 'Offensive' tag, it rapidly gets out of control and starts covering everything, often for some of the stupidest reasons.

Actually, you do. And you caused wars about it

Examples: Greeks thought that non-greek languages (and sometimes other greek city-states) all sounded like BAR-BAR-BAR-BAR-BAR-BAR-BAR-BAR-BAR-BAR (therefore coining the term Barbarian). Romans expanded the view from mostly Greek to Greco-Roman, so as to include themselves in the list (but not those filthy Gauls, they're just icky BAR-BAR-BAR-Barbarians).

Most Europeans in the Middle Ages considered Russians as not European, to the point that the isolated themselves from them (didn't help much that the Kiev peoples were subjects of constant attack from the Mongols, but then again the Mongols weren't so bad if you think about it).

And, in recent times, the Slavic peoples killing each other because of differences in ethnicity even though they share history. I could go on and on.

So really, you're strawman is just that. In the end, mankind is the worst of species and we should all just off ourselves with nukes.

We white folks have always been in the position of power. That is what makes the bar of racism against us much higher. We don't have the history of being ACTUALLY discriminated against, or it's far enough back (like Irish prejudice) that people of Irish ancestry more or less have the same advantages of the rest of us crackers. This is especially true when racism is still being practiced against groups like Hispanics.

That's pretty much my definition of conservative humor. It typically degrades or demonizes some group or person, is mean and hurtful, and oh yeah not funny. "Mexicans are lazy, smell bad, and only eat tacos. Hey man, don't get mad at me because you can't take a joke!"

I'm a person that believes that we should have smart immigration control, and that illegal immigration is a bad situation for criminal influx, abuse of the not-otherwise-criminal immigrants, and yes social services in areas that feel its greatest impact. It is a really raw deal for legal immigrants that have to jump through hoops like you wouldn't believe to get their ticket punched. However, these folks are the ultimate capitalists... they come to work like crazy at a lower cost than the competition in a variety of fields. They're typically pretty conservative Christians (Catholic, Mormon, and others) and are working to better their family's situation.

And they get sh*t on by the same people that employ them, who otherwise hold the exact same values.

Just put this here ..

Below are a few facts about immigration in the United States:

- The number of illegal immigrants in the United States was estimated at 11.5 million in 2011, according to the Pew Hispanic Center.

- The illegal immigrant population grew by 27% between 2000 and 2009, according to the Department of Homeland Security.

- Sixty-three percent of the illegal immigrant population (approximately 6.8 million) entered the United States before 2000. (DHS)

- Fifty-eight percent of the illegal immigrant population is from Mexico. (Pew)

- Twenty-four percent of illegal immigrants reside in California; 16% reside in Texas. (DHS)


What else is there? OH. Hard shell tacos are awful. I won't touch them.

You want to fix the 'illegal' problem from Mexico? Help Mexico be a better place to live. Yes, their issues are ours. Moreso than Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, Syria and other places on the other side of the world.

The best tacos I ever had were in Rocky Point on the 'Mexican' side of the beach. Up the beach, down a road, past the place with the huge hat and mustache on the building and to a 3 walled 'building' where a family makes the best tacos in the world. They also bring out amazing fixings to go with it- Cucumbers, pineapple, and on and on and on all on corn tortillas (the way it ought to be) with some shrimp.

What else is there? Oh, Mexico has a rich history and has a lot to offer the US. The northern part of Mexico is different than the central/southern part.

MBooda: Huh! Kind of like how the word "w*tb*ck" sparks outrage by FARK mods.


Yeah, you're the type of person who goes on and on about how "there's black people and then there's n*gg*rs", and thinks it's OK because Chris Rock said something like that once, aren't you?

Tacos aren't traditional Mexican food anyway, dumbass. I think they meant "how to catch a fat drunk at 3am"

Latinwolf: Or they complain about people being too PC, aka the white man's victim card.


"Political correctness for show" is a problem, but I hear people call "PC run amok" over the stupidest sh*t all the time. "Navy skipper relieved of duty for inappropriate conduct" when the "conduct" was letting half his crew get wasted and arrested in a foreign port. PC RUN AMOK. Female students out-performing males in school and college. PC RUN AMOK.

I guess I just don't feel threatened enough, although I'm still only 35.

Catching isn't the problem. The problem is finding an honest person left in the government that takes their oath of office seriously.

Carn: Conservative humor.

Yeah, they just aren't funny. They get "mean and hurtful" and they get "aww shucks" but funny is a stretch. Not that liberals don't go "mean and hurtful," but they have a whole bag of tricks in addition. Must have to do with education, more specifically not automatically demonizing it.


That's pretty much my definition of conservative humor. It typically degrades or demonizes some group or person, is mean and hurtful, and oh yeah not funny. "Mexicans are lazy, smell bad, and only eat tacos. Hey man, don't get mad at me because you can't take a joke!"

UberDave: Even their regional food sucks.


Now you're just trolling. TXBBQ and SC BBQ are very different but "sucks" is horse sh*t.

neritz: It's surprisingly not bad as long as you go to the right ones. Just look for the ones that are fully staffed, but only have one car in the parking lot.


I've had Mexican food all over San Diego, which I have to assume is good since it seemed quite popular with Mexicans and made by Mexicans, as well as getting recommendations to my married-to-a-native-Mexican boss, and I've found similar fare here in Charleston. I've had some blah stuff, too. We have Mexicans just like every other state, from the source. Agriculture-heavy economies tend to attract them, and more power to them, especially when it means I have a broad selection of fare.

I'm not a racist.

Of course you're not.

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.

According to this shirt, only illegals like tacos. Therefore, all people eating at this Mexican-style restaurant must be illegal.
