Right. What would he be if he were American-born? If his parents were Swedish (of Argentine ancestry), would he be white American, Latino, both, neither?

Ask the lawyers: I am being quite serious.

You are truly pathetic! Did you, or did you not mention sauces? As a matter of fact, the "sauce" I was referring to is measured in “proof”………as a joke. Ergo, the laughing icon.

To answer your ignorant racist question; no I am not a fried chicken connoisseur. Furthermore, in case you don’t know, black people are not the only consumers of fried chicken. Bring it on, bigot!

Azbear likes to emphasize Spaniards as Latinos/Hispanics.

I like Fried Chicken. Especially from Roscoes. And I like hot sauce on it too. Lousiana.

Californio has been "outed" by a few of us so he's no longer a member - you will not need to worry about him insulting you any further until he shows up with his new moniker, pretending to be someone else. Quite frankly, when I read that chicken post, I thought that was about the lowest anyone has sunk on this forum and beyond inappropriate.

It's a shame too, because I think Californio/ProLogic/GHOST is at heart not a bad person...he definitely needs to consider some self reflection, though.

Thanks for your support! I was totally shocked when I read his post. I had not even thought about his Mexican heritage when I posted those comments. He mentioned sauce, and I thought about alcohol, and jokingly suggested he was a connoisseur. I had to sit for a moment to regain my composure before responding.

To say I was PO’d would be an extreme understatement. I think the last time I was that angry over a racial slur, was when an employee at work made a comment about my son. Of course, he didn’t realize I heard him. Typical mom, I would update pictures in my office when my son was a baby. The guy commented to another employee that my son was a cute little “zebra” (black & white) but he was missing his black stripes. Ha, Ha. BTW, the guy was black. Ignorant racists come in all colors.

I knew Californio was reincarnated, but I didn’t realize 'who' until ArizonaBound outed him. Again, thanks!

Ive read worse on this forum.

Another thing, you guys talk so much about your disdain for 'political correctness'.

People have dismissed "we_tback" and "be_aner" and "sp_ic" as not being particularly offensive.
Yet you get super offended over fried chicken? And he wasnt even using it as an attack.
He misunderstood your statement, and said "how would YOU like it if.." etc etc.

Whats so offensive over the fried chicken thing? Thats like saying Mexicans like tacos. Its true. So what?

Theres been a lot more offensive things on this forum that havent even been given an infraction, much less got someone banned.


Theres a huge double standard, and hypocrisy when it comes to your guys' beef against 'political correctness'.

"Political correctness is for crybabies! Unless its directed at my group!"

I may engage in heated debates on occasion, but you have never seen me attack with a racial slur. Californio admitted to being a racist, albeit not a “practicing” racist. He was simply being himself. His comments were indeed intended to insult. However, you are certainly entitled to your opinion.
