El Presidente Calderón has announced that Mexico will not participate
in the next Summer Olympics. He announced that, "Anyone who can run,
jump, or swim has already left the country.

Listen y'all, my grandmother was a Hatfield and I am proud of my heritage and no, we are not inbred and all of that. But I have noticed in this country that it is ok to make bigoted comments about rednecks, hillybillies or any other white slang one might want to use, but of course we certainly can't use any kind of slang at all about any minority. That is called discrimination.

Anyway, my opening post was a joke and a funny, nothing more.

Mexican Guy, you like to say things about us white folks but you are all for the illegals, as long as they happen to be Spanish speaking, so I put you in the same class as those you try to constantly put down.

I would rather be in a subway with a MO hillbilly than a pissed off LIE driver!! The joke was cute, and the reality is scary. Jobs for people who pay taxes and need health insurance are not a joke. If we can provide schooling, healthcare, welfare for peoples who never have paid US taxes and yet we have kids who live in Arkansas etc who do not have books to learn how to read yet their parents slave in coalmines all day and do pay taxes, isn't there something wrong with our government??????

LOL, my comment was deleted, and what should've been deleted was this thread...

When did I say that I’m in favor of illegal immigration? Or, for that matter, when did I say that I’m only for it if the immigrants happen to be Hispanic?

By the way, I'm a Mexican of European descent, so I'm not saying things about you white folks.

Many of those who "run, jump, or swim" across the border die doing so; is that part of the joke to you?

I cannot find the humor at all in this so-called joke. I actually think that this type of "joke" does nothing more than provoke and annoy people. Some folks may think that my distaste for this type of humor is due to some misguided sense of political correctness, but I'd like to think that my mama and daddy raised me to be a better person than someone who gets their giggles by categorizing an entire culture.
