Oops! Not sure what I did, but I appreciate you editing the "Quote" also.
After the big Holiday weekend, the last thing I wanna face today is my own ignorance......I'd rather just be unaware.
Thank-you for the detailed and informative response to my question concerning Mexican/Hispanic. I understand the dilemna.
With all the labeling going on.......hell, I dont know which race box to check. I dont see mine there. I mean, what am I ........a Scottish-American? Oops, no box for that check-mark......I am repeatedly called down for calling myself caucasion instead of white. WTF? That makes me a white-american? Whay aint there no place for my freaking Heritage????????
Where's my dang box describing my descent? Glad you aint mad, Chipster.
And my American relatives of Mexican descent like jokes such as this because they feel no kinship with these border crashing foriegners from another country.
I hear ya loud and clear, EC!!!!!!!!
I don't wanna be affiliated with the KKK just cos I'm white. MY FAMILY felt the joke funny, but hell, we look for excuses to laugh rather than excuses to be offended. Guess what? I got same-sex relationships in my clan. OMFG!!!!!!!!!
Aside..... they got the BEST JOKES ABOUT EVERYBODY OUT THERE BREATHIN!
Can't repeat them here, it has been known to pi$$ off the world, (but NOT my family) EC
A police study here in Portland found that Latinos were 8 times more likely to be stopped and searched by police during traffic stops. Anti-Mexican feeling always worries me because too often people see skin color and ethnic type, not citizenship.
First of all lemme say, iffen you aint doing nuthin wrong its no big sweat! Iffen you are, Bite the bullet.
Case in Point: MY Only Son.
He constantly complained of being harassed by teachers, principals and later on in his life........... the police. Go figger, I told him time and time again.......iffen you act and look like a dang thug, HANG WITH THUGS, you will be treated as one, cause chances are you By God Are One! Lets keep in mind this was a Whitebread Boy......ya know, supposed to get leniencey? BS!
My point to him was:
1. Iffen you dress in loose baggy clothes, you AINT bein picked on cos of yer culture (WTF kinda arguement was he presenting....this is comin from a WHITEBREAD, Cracker boy).......but because you can possibly be carrying a concealed weapon(s), dope and fake YER WEIGHT iffen you have jess committed a dang crime, and there are witnesses.........Duh. The perp weighed how much????? Who the heck knows?
2. If you have very short hair, it makes you hard to identify in a lineup. (Nuthin Unique). He was, however too damn smart to get a tattoo....made me more suspect to his alter/life.
3. The silly hat that you WILL NOT WEAR UNDER MY ROOF and you will VERY respectfully remove at the door or I will slap it off yer head as long as I live out of respect for every Vet out there (military family), helps to further conceal your identity (ie eye color, face shape.....blah blah blah)
If one elects to embrace the "fashion" and shenanigans of criminals, expect to be treated as thus. He embraced a way of life and NEVER KNEW, the baggy pants came from the fact that when you are locked up they take yer belt. Thus the baggy pants. He Knows Now you can bet.
In other Words, Don't come cryin to me when you are pulled over........(I'm screamin in my mind)...... Iffen you aint doin nothin wrong, you've only been DETAINED! No civil rights violated. Period.
Iffen you is, So Dang Be It! Go to jail, do not pass go, do not collect $200.
I'm sayin this cos I KNOW.
He is in Reidsville State Prison. End of story.
It has NOTHING to do with race, its about a damn lifestyle. If you aren't breakin the law, why complain?
My great grandmother was half Mexican and half German and that joke didn't bother me in the least. This PC stuff is for the birds. Folks oughta grow some skins and joke anout what can be joked about. I'm a redneck and get reminded of it often. Don't bother me none, either.
......skins/stones, grow something for the love of God, even if the best you manage to push out with your finest grunt is a SPINE.......and quit whining about ones plight. Cripes, I'm screaming we ALL got our own cross to bear. This self-pity jag the PC is on makes me wanna puke until I go blind. (Hell, where am I????)
Thanks, Slick. It dont bother me neither, my friend.
That's because it's open season on rednecks, and we all know what race rednecks are. The forces of PC are nothing if not disgustingly hypocritical and racist in their own right.
Bwa-hahahhahhhahhahhahha. Good one EC, next thing ya know they'll make it OK to field dress our A$$.
