Sorry, when I read your original status I thought of it as a "I don't know why they didn't like it what's wrong with them?" kind of thing as opposed to what it was. Then I misinterpreted your reply as a threat and went from there. Happens when I read shit on the internet rather than hear it. I deleted my replies. Cheers!
Just in case you didn't can't read my advice on your status, If you scroll down after you selected the episode of Remote Viewing, there will be a point where it says something like "Showing 25 out of 51 comments" If you click on 'View All', it'll bring you back to the original page with the pictures and time stamps all intact :)
Hello again. Yes, in México also we do say things like "hola negro" and "hola blanca", and yeah, there's really no malice behind it. And yeah, we also say "hola gorda" (hello fat one, or hello fattie) but it is not meant in a hateful way either. Most of family calls my mother "gorda" even though she's not actually fat. Yeah, a lot gets lost in translation. I'll get back to you later on a qoute I liked a lot. It said that languages are also worlds, and that words are not only different labels we put on things.
Now, with the television shows. I sort of agree with you. It's not that most of the people who appear on television shows are there just because they are white and we discriminate against other races, it's simply because that's like the "ideal" way most people think of when defining beauty. For example, only 20% of the people in México are white, and yet 99.9% of the actors you see on TV are white. But they are there because the majority of people who watch those shows like the way they look. Even though there's been an effort to create pride in being a mestizo or a native indian, many still have an inferiority complex towards white people. My grandmother often found herself in various encounters with other Mexicans who would shout insults at her like "gachupina" (despective way of calling someone that is from Spain) even though she and her parents were born here.
I don't know, I kind of understand how some Americans feel about immigration. It's like, I might need mi neighbor to come to my house and clean my room and wash my clothes, but I don't want him to. There's a difference between needing and wanting, but yeah, a lot of hipocrisy going on as well.
Hello, sorry for responding so late but I've been very busy with college. Well, about the Mr. Sheeeit meme. I can see how many people would be angry about it, since its a very touchy subject in the United States. See, in Latin America we don't have racism, but we do have class problems. We many times openly make jokes about gay people, people from other countries, and yes, of black people too. But even then there isn't actually real hate against those people. There's little to none homophobia here, and because we don't see many black people in here, whenever we see one, they are actually pretty popular. They are actually kind of exotic in a way(at least in México). I've been to Panama, Cuba, and Colombia, and there's rarely problems of racism. I don't know, we make fun of anything and everybody, but it's really just bluffing. Korey said that many of the jokes came from Spanish speaking people, now I can't verify that but if it's true, it's not because Spain or Latin America hates black people, it's because we don't have the same history that you guys have. But yes, I can understand why some people in the U.S. would be angry about some spanish speaking people making fun of black people, but they don't make the jokes like in a hateful manner. It's like, it's fine to make racist jokes, as long as they are funny.
