Where bad choices make good stories
White liberals, there is no cure.
Yeah, there is, but like the vaccine, it might be fatal.
NO might to it, it should be!!!grayman
Snuffy, if it wasn't fatal it didn't work.
Clearly the Mexican people are simply not understanding the lack of respect for their culture this guy is showing them. It's cultural appropriation to have Taco Tuesday, but if you choose not to eat tacos because you are a steak and potatoes kinda guy ,you're a hateful racist bigot. Got it? I have No idea how it is even possible to adopt the dress and, or clothing, maybe language, of another culture and that somehow constitutes some kind of insult or anything negative. Actually, I'm pretty sure we,the American people, kinda sorta expect the people who move Here to blend into our society, by adopting the attitudes,understandings,language, and other aspects of life in America. Only a lefty could figure out a way to be pissed over what looks like appreciation and respect to me. Excellent social experiment,, the result was absolutely unsurprising.And not one lefty will get it.
satan's edomites are hard at work destroying america.
Liberals all seem to believe that everyone is required to live by a script ... except liberals of course. They're the people who get to decide who gets what script to live by.
Proof the Mexicans aren't snowflakes.
They don't give a **** They have a sense of humor. Liberals, not so much.....
The first time I went to Germany (using Space A flights while in the Air Force in 1977) I was afraid that the Germans would feel like I was being condescending if I tried to speak the few German words I knew. So I didn't. On subsequent trips there I discovered that they actually LOVED IT if I tried speaking their language, and were extremely friendly and helpful as a result.
Also, when I was growing up people would say that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.
I’m not sure what the hell I’m supposed to embrace. My paternal grandfather was Irish and heugonot(?) maybe via canada. my paternal grandmother was the first in her family to be born in the US. Her people were irish and english. Maternal grandfather english, native american, grandmother dutch and native american and there was also a little something-something from the woodpile that no one talks about. I was raised catholic in Detroit in the 50’s and60’s around a lot of polish folk, in fact my first wife was sorta polish so if I had to try and describe my cultural orientation it would focus on the polish catholic/ motown 50’s-60’s.
Yep and yep to the two above.
It's quite simple: The ones that seem like real people, are. The ones that seem like triggered phonies, are. I'll take Real People for 1000, Alex.
“It's now very common to hear people say, 'I'm rather offended by that.' As if that gives them certain rights. It's actually nothing more... than a whine. 'I find that offensive.' It has no meaning; it has no purpose; it has no reason to be respected as a phrase. 'I am offended by that.' Well, so fucking what."[I saw hate in a graveyard -- Stephen Fry, The Guardian, 5 June 2005]”
I vote for open season on liberals and their followers with a no bag limit. Shit Ill even swing for a tag or stamp. Know your neighbors, local local local. Listen to the stories the folks in Sarajevo tell about the war. Saber 7
Quoting a (Black) Zimbabwean friend here:"Sure I'm offended by racism. But I'm much more offended by people who presume to be offended by something on my behalf without asking what I think about it."Personally, I'm appropriating the Hell out of Western culture. I like, in no particular order, germ theory of disease, antibiotics, surgery with general anesthesia, three-phase power distribution, air conditioning, central heating, the internal combustion engine, vinifera sp. wines, Märzenbier, the integrated circuit, the microchip, the internet, safe air travel, refrigeration, ubiquitous safe drinking water, calculus, communication satellites, GPS, MRI and CT scanners, country music, the poetry of James Elroy Flecker and Robinson Jeffers, Bach, Palestrina, ... you get the idea.
The fastest growing demographic group in the USA....The "perpetually offended"
all those white privilege hate yourself classes have seem to have worked.
Lemmy Kilmister of Motorhead said, "Who are they to be offended? Some walk around with little notebooks looking for things to be offended by.?
I've decided it's time that I become offended every time I see someone who is 'of color' speaking a European language, using electronics, traveling in a wheeled vehicle, wearing anything other than hand made clothing, or using any metal implement beyond crude iron.
I have a poncho that i bought in Mexico that i take camping, been wearing it on chilly nights for decades. I wear a sombrero (a real working one, not a fiesta one) when mowing or fishing. I've done it for many years. Very functional in the Texas sun. No one down here thinks twice about it. Why would they? It's as much Texas culture as Mexican culture. Kids are stupid.
When I was doing ranch work, all of the vaqueros and 90% of the Anglo cowboys wore sombreros when working for the same reason. That summertime California sun can be brutal.The regular cowboy hats were worn when they were were in town.
If i understand cultural appropriation, no one should speak English except those whose ancestors are English. And if a person isn't Irish, they can't eat corned-beef on cabbage on St. Patrick's day---or for that matter celebrating St. Patrick's day in general. Oh wait...prohibitions concerning "cultural appropriation" only apply to us whiteys.
