CARROLLTON, Ga. --A county commissioner has prompted calls for him to apologize after using a derogatory term for Hispanics during a meeting.

But Carroll County Commissioner Bill Head stands by his use of the word "*******" and said he will not apologize.

During a work session Tuesday, Head, 82, said the county needed more jail space because of criminals from nearby Atlanta and "the *******s from down south."

None of the other commissioners commented on Head's remarks during the work session or the following business meeting.

This is what happens when you ignore the invasion and people get frustrated. Apparently that word wasn't a slur back when the government had Operation Wet Back under Eisenhauser. I'm not condoning it but I can see how these things happen.

Well stated: it is too late for the Big Business/La Raza cabal to try to use what that legislator said against the anti illegal immigration movement.

Now; for irony, the word Gringo may be going up in social status------more and more of us Americans (of all races/ethnicities) are referring to ourselves as such in part to flip off the 'multicultural' invasion

If you adopt gabacho as your own, you might better accomplish your aim to 'flip off' a 'multicultural invasion'.

Then again, the 'irony' might instead, ...be considered lost on you.

True enough.

Some years ago a Latina from Mexico (US Citizen) referred to illegals using Mr Head's word. I was surprised to say the least.

This is no excuse. If a black person called me a cracker, would it be ok because my kid and the other white kids are in a better school district than his kid. It's just frustration. Right?
