The Aunt Jemima is a reference to Whites exploiting Blacks for monetary gain.
Aunt Jemima, Uncle Ben, etc. icons of products.
There's no Hispanic equivalent though..maybe the Taco Bell dog ?

It's a dated saying not used much anymore.
I knew what that poster meant as soon as I read it.

Are you providing healthcare benefits to them so that their social costs aren't passed on to the rest of us or don't you care about that either?
Wait until the powers-that-be start increasing visas for skilled
Workers also--like H1-b. Some might be singing a different tune then.

Frito Bandito? I saw some old videos about that dude. Tho back then Mexicans were called "white", NOT "Hispanic" so it didn't matter.

Hiring Jose is a victimless crime. He works hard, I pay him a good rate. We both win.

That is why I support free immigration. Someone to do yard work, someone to fix a car, someone to pour drinks, someone to bag my groceries.

My #1 concern is me. I earn enough to live in a highly desirable suburb, so I suffer zero consequences - and get all the benefits. Huzzah for me.
