"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.

No, we're not misreading it. We're mocking the fact that apparently educated managers needed to be told that not all Mexicans  wear sombreros. This was in a farking work manual. That means people needed to be told this. That's a problem. How do you not see that?


The same work manuals have sections explaining not to bring illegal drugs and handguns to work as well. Something else that you would think doesn't need to be explained. It's the nature of such literature.
But don't let that stop your manufactured racial outrage

I love that you pretend not to see the difference. Or maybe you're just very very dumb.

According to the lawsuit filed in Yolo County, California, Target's "multi-cultural tips" teach predominantly Caucasian managers that not all Hispanic employees are cultural stereotypes who eat tacos and like salsa music.

No. The Irish are sloppy, belligerent drunks who can't hold their liquor. Get it right, willya?

The micks have a lot of heart in a fight, though.


Definitely. If they could quit stopping every five minutes to hurriedly scrawl out maudlin songs and poetry comparing the drunken brawlers throwing up on every surface including the ceilings to ancient Irish heroes of yore who were basically drunken brawlers but with more mead and less Guinness, and loudly and drunkenly debating contraception and abortion rights as within the EU and how it makes an impact on traditional Gaelic culture vis a vis Holy Mother Church and speaking of which why has there never been an Irish Pope and shame on ye, Joseph O'Halloran, t'was always said you were more than half a Jew on yer mither's side and if truth be told, yer father's as well to be mocking of our Holy Mother- well, yerself and which army d'ye think will be backin' ye up????.....what the hell was I sayin', now...

Are those Italian subtitles?

That clip was remarkably hard to find, and I have extraordinary google-foo.

God is saying "Go to bed. Set the drink down, and go to bed."


So apparently there are not only Italian fans of Breaking Bad (plausible), but Italian who are ALSO mariachi or  narco-corridos fans.

So while we generalizing an entire population on some asshats, lets go ahead and pull out some files on the Bloods, Crips, KKK, Aryan Nation, Heaven's Gate, Asian Boyz, Casa Nostra..... heck, if there is a race attached to it, I am sure to find a gang affiliation to it.

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.

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.
