    Cornelius wasn’t so bad, but a lot of the other members of the ape society were indeed quite bigoted.

    Now that I think about it; Planet of the Apes could be a comment on racism. I was too young to catch on then.

    ^@agrestic – More people are becoming Cornelius these days, but there is still a ways to go.

    I think the original French novel ‘La planète des singes’ had nothing to do with racism. Speciesism, maybe.

    I always thought it was a cautionary tale about nuclear war.

    Out of the mouth of one that shows latinos as being happy associates of cockroaches and living up to every stereotype of the lazy Hispanic…incredible…but take notice; it is the cockroach talking while the Hispanic sits silently. The latino/Hispanic part of me is embarrassed by lalo and how many of his fans think he shows latino/Hispanic life in a jocular perspective as he does. Lalo does NOT speak for the Hispanic/latino populace any more than that reporter does.

    Wow – Lalo starts a racist rant and the posters here- led by Agrestic the Intellectual- begin their palaver about a movie’s fictional characters.
    Hey, folks, don’t forget to segue into a heartfelt discussion about the lack of tacos in that movie.
    As Lalo once said, "OMFG TACOS ARE FOR EVERYONE!!!!! (including apes, I guess)
    Today’s strip didn’t even get Figueroa’s quote correct.
    According to the Miami Herald -
    “On a live segment of the show El Gordo y La Flaca, Figueroa was commenting on a video showing how a makeup artist transformed himself into various celebrities, among them the First Lady. Then Figueroa said, “Michelle Obama, you know, looks like she was part of the cast of the movie Planet of the Apes.”
    In all fairness, not having seen the show, maybe the makeup artist was not very good. It is a possibility since he was transforming himself into celebrities. He is a man, and if he badly transforms himself into a woman with darker skin, the comment could be justified.
    It wouldn’t be a comment on Mrs. Obama, but on the makeup guy.
    The point is, in grabbing at stale news that Lalo can jam into his agenda, he is again making the round facts fit into his square holes.

    Plus, his use of the term “our people” is offensive.
    Apparently, Lalo never says the Pledge of Allegiance – otherwise, he would be saying “one nation.”
    Not “our people” and “your people” and “them” and “us.”
    Lalo, you are AGAIN being divisive to the United States of America!
    And as a citizen of this country who has to put with other citizens who don’t have a clue – like you – yes, you are embarrassing.
