Ask a Mexican on Arizona's Insanity

Aunqué soy Boricua, mi corazón está al lado del pueblo mejicano, aquí en Arizona. ¿Porqué no hablas contra "La Bruja Mala del Oeste" Gobernadora Jan Brewer, "El Leon Cobarde" Ex-Senador Russell Pearce, "El Hombre Hecho de Lata" Alguacil del Condado Maricopa Joe Arpairo, "El Hombre Hecho de Paja" Abogado General Tom Horne y en final, "El Brujo de OZ" Superintendente de Instrucción Pública John Huppenthal?

Somos Quien Somos

You don't need a Spanish-English dictionary or your pocho co-worker to figure out what the question above refers to: the continued insanity that is Arizona. We've covered its pendejos throughout the years, especially Horne and Huppenthal, who earlier this year declared the Mexican-American Studies program at the Tucson Unified School District illegal because it doesn't hew to the traditional view in American history that teaches Mexicans are shiftless, lazy rapists. Part of that effort was to boot out of Tucson schools books ranging from Shakespeare's The Tempest to Pulitzer Prize winner Junot Diaz's Drown to works by authors ranging from Sandra Cisneros to Sherman Alexie to and even Howard Zinn. They're banning American history in Tucson! In other news, Satan called: The Prince of Darkness wants his disciples to join him back in Hell.

Buy banned books! On that level, let me turn the columna over to two worthy projects designed to blast past this Tucson pendejada. The first plug goes to the SouthWest Organizing Project, the fine cabrones y cabronas from Albuquerque behind 500 Years of Chicano History, one of the books targeted by the Arizona Know-Nothings for daring to show that Mexican history in the Southwest wasn't all about sleeping peons under cactuses or Spanish missions. They're selling the book at a 50 percent discount rate to all Arizonans and will give the book away for free to any Arizonan student who writes a letter "describing why they think the teaching of Chicano and Native American history accurately to young people is essential," according to their website. More info available at www.chicanohistory.org.

The other great effort is by my Houston amigos over at Nuestra Palabra. One of them, Tony Diaz, has assumed a new persona: El Librotraficante, who'll set up underground libraries in Houston, San Antonio, Albuquerque, and Tucson that'll host the banned books and other books by writers of color and their down gabacho compatriots. They want to collect a complete set of banned libros for each underground library, and donate extra copies to public libraries once each community is safely set with a collection that the Gestapo can't access. People who want to help — and chingón writers who want to donate a set of their work — can learn more at www.librotraficante.com.

Preorder Taco USA! The Mexican will donate muchos copies of his two previous books to the Librotraficante's efforts—how's that for a segue into my obligatory plug for the latest one? Gentle cabrones: My much-promised Taco USA: How Mexican Food Conquered America, will finally hit bookstores April 10, but that doesn't mean you can't already order it (yes, grammar snobs: I just used a double-negative, but Mexican Spanish loves double-negatives the way we do cute second cousins). Place your order with your favorite local bookstore, your finer online retailers, your craftier piratas, but place it: my libro editor has already promised to deport me from the publishing industry if we don't sell enough copies! And stay tuned for book-signing info!

one more thing pendejo, you mexicans come here with your hand out waiting for a freebie then have the nerve to complain and accuse...to hell with that..if you love America and want to be American than to me you are more than welcome,however if, you want freebies and sell perico, we dont want you here...we need freedom fighters not commie pukes like Tavo, who want to live in a past of their own interpretation and then incite hatred on those who where not even presen tat that time or place(sins of our fathers)..if it where his decision, Mr Arellano wants to make every white American face things he never experienced or was a part of all the while proclaiming his superior understanding of life in america. again fuck azatlan and fuck the reconquista...just remember i still have my weapon ready to defend America from vermin like yourself just like millions of other white, brown, black, red, yellow americans..I suggest that you visit you buddy Che in hell sir.

the reconquista will not happen because the mexican is weak...if they had any cajones, they would overthrow that piece of shit govt and system in mexico but to date havnt even tried...no its to easy to come here and undersell the american worker, the shameful part here is that we are doing it to ourselves for the sake of profit...by letting these weaklings into the u. s. with this pathetic thought that we stole there land. I say stop living off the failures of santa ana and the spanish and fight for your own freedom back in mexico and stop selling drugs here which a great number of you do...infact, stop crying about the drug war(40,000)which you help facilitate for the sake of profit..example as follows mexican modern day heroes include people like el chapo guzman...a butcher by most accounts..theres to many to list..anyway fuck azatlan and fuck your racist rants against America and its people...you wont be the first to be but in your place scumbag.

First of all this article appears as if it was written by an envious, hate-filled recipient of Affirmative Action dollars. Secondly, if certain mentally challenged Mexican Americans feel so unfairly treated in this country you guys I'm sure know how to get on back across the border. There you may learn the true history of your people first hand with no pesky americans getting in the way.

What a bunch of horrible racist propaganda this "Ask a Mexican" forum is!! Every article expresses racism and disdain for Americans. While this author and his minions complain CONSTANTLY their people are steadily sneaking over the border TO BE IN THIS COUNTRY! Maybe these hate-filled mexican american hate mongers should just be grateful that they are not at the mercy of the their beloved homeland. Mexico would not be as charitable as the United States of America!

Seriously... Arizona has more than its share of raving loonies - Jan Brewer, Joe Arpaio, Russel Pierce, Paul Babeu, John Huppenthal, and the people who posted before me - is there something wrong with the water in your state?

This is my country, pendejo. Born in the USA, lived and educated in the USA, fought in Nam for the USA and made an honest good living in the USA. Finally retired and will probably die in the USA. You and all the hate-filled babosos can return to whatever rock you crawled out of.
