"Only a 'wetback' can work this hard," and "You got to be Mexican to work like this,"

Those are compliments.

So they do all wear sombreros and eat tacos? I'm confused.

Someone thinks poorly of another person because they like tacos?!

The terrorist have truely won, tacos are delicious, I said it and I stand behind it.

I eat tacos and wear the occasional large hat, does that mean I am Mexican too?

"Working like a Mexican" is a huge testament to the work ethic of Mexicans. Getting past the stereotypes is a huge step, which Target seems to be doing a piss poor job at.


I spent a day at Disneyland's new California Adventure and was surprised at how many cars with Mexican plates were in the parking garage. These weren't the beater Toyota Hiluxes I was used to. I'm talking just normal cars from Corollas through Lexuses. Just a normal variation of cars, but having Mexican plates.

Then heading into the park I heard Mexican spoke all around me. I'm so used to the stereotype of the "Mexican dishwasher" and "Mexican landscaper" that I was truly taken aback when I saw normal families walking along dressed like any other park attendee.

It was so far from what I had predisposed myself to thinking. These people were just like us! After years of living in the U.S., I never would have thought that a visit to Disneyland would change everything I knew about Mexicans. These were families with kids, just like mine, who traveled across the border, like I did, to enjoy the sites and culture of the country across the way.

I sat down and wept into my hands. The experience was overwhelming. Who was I to judge these people? Are they not my guests in this country? They come not to take my job or to siphon money back to their families, but to just spend a day here and enjoy what we had to offer in the very same way that I've spent a day in Canada enjoying their country.

It gave me a new respect for these people. I vowed on that day that I would never look at a Mexican as a usurper of American jobs and services but as a fellow human being who in different circumstances could have been my neighbor. Indeed, in a deep and profound way he is my neighbor.

A taco may or may not be a sandwich, but a Manwich is a meal.

how many Hispanic people of working age in California have never had a taco? sure, not all of them eat tacos, i think we're taking the whole respecting diversity thing when we have to worry about hurting the feelings of the non-taco-eating 0.01%.

You should still watch out when they say "epa epa andale" because when they do, bad shiat is about to go down.

A better question is how many people above the age of three in California haven't eaten a taco....of any race or creed.

I dont know any Mexican who doesnt eat tacos but havent seen many wearing sombreros.  Then again I dont know any white Murican who doesnt eat tacos and the only ones I see wearing sombreros are fat 30 somethings celebrating cinco de mayo aka another excuse for white folks to drink beer.

What you were seeing in the Disney parking structure were Mexicans from Mexico on vacation. They are regular working class citizens of Mexico here to enjoy themselves. These are not the illegal aliens that have invaded this country and are sponging off our society, dropping anchor babies and bringing crime and taking blue collar jobs away from the rightful citizens who deserve those jobs.

Don't confuse the two.

Tacos?
I've seen them advertised outside their quaint little "restaurantes" . That Latin food can be quite unpredictable. I fear they might be a little too spicy for me.  Too picante, as the say south of the border.

I don't know...I like 'em both, but I could kill myself with tacos because I'll just keep eating them as long as they're in front of my face.  Burgers fill me up.  Put a second burger in front of me and I'll pass. Not so with tacos.

Strongly disagree.

If a good taco (as in, authentic with soft corn tortillas) is messier than a good cheeseburger. You fail at eating.

That whole anchor baby thing... How does it work?  Legally, it doesn't help jack crackers, seeing that ICE is willing to deport you and leave the children in a foster home.

And how bout that whole higher crime thing?  how does that work as well?  Mexicans leave their families behind and risk their lives to cross a desert just so they can cause a beer-induced ruckus and raping in a white bred neighborhood?

Seriously, if I didnt know any better, I'd swear you are just a racist person.
