Hmm, maybe you should put down the big stick and start running.


What's everyones opinion of this video?

It does seem a bit...well...Racist?

Can't relate to it. Lets get some solid US opinions

My intuition is telling me that personifying 'all' mexicans as either;

pregnant, raging "bag of orange swinging, fat, scruffy", or somehow related to cleaning with brooms and rakes is somehow...

Wrong?

I'm sure a lot of people are really offended. I for one, think its absolutely hilarious, lol.

I'm not trying to be racist or anything, its all done in good humor i suppose.

This video was made by The Latino Comedy Project. Here is some more of their work.

Whoever told you this wants to hurt you very badly.

Anyway, I don't know, I smirked during the parody and thought it was a little funny. I'm just waiting for the PC police to have it shut off and the user who posted it warned.

Yeah, I remained stoic and concerned about the ethical attack on mexico until I saw the guy swinging a bag of oranges. "ERrraaarhhhh!!"

Then I just


The problem is, I know dozens of people who live in mexico, professional people with more respectful and lightbearing morals then many of my American brethren have shown me.

Best line is from my friend Aline "Yes...They make fun of us..but we dont care, Ah ha ha ha"

Their focus is on living, working, loving.

But hey, this certainly isnt all of mexico, but their is virtue to be found in all corners of the world.

Lets try to remember that!

Its not racist at all, just poking fun at all the illegals hopping the border. I found it funny

My computer is very old so I can not see the video.

That said:

Many of my customers are from Mexico and other South of the Border countries. They are people. They are not dumb, some are highly educated just like us. To put it bluntly I rather hire a Mexican to work for me than any other nationality. They still understand how to work.

However I am not for giving illegals a free pass. My Grandparents had to go through the red tape and so should everyone else!

Oh yes, only in north america does the question of who came first come into play for legal land disputes and citizenship

Every other country in the world, you were assimilated, you were killed and sent to live in the hills and that became your land to scratch a living from rocks.

So now...We stand here as the children of our ancestors who committed high crimes against humanity and now the other children want to take their ball back.

I have the feeling the only way we are going to stop this move is to stop playing the game.

Only a white person would bother to even question whether it was racist or not.

Latinos would be too busy laughing to wonder about it.

Good thing they have a great sense of humor
