    I’m not sure why he thought acting as always frito bandito in commercials was wrong.

    The fuss was one of the first assaults by “Political Correctness”. There is no worse example of bigotry than Fanatical Do Gooders [FDGs] and Political Correctness.

    Leftists may not believe it, but we impressionable youth of that era did not believe all Hispanics were banditos or lazy mice from Speedy Gonzalez cartoons or slow-witted “Jose Jimenez” types. We just thought they were characters created for our amusement.

    jbmlaw is absolutely right. How many of us believe that Homer Simpson is in fact a typical bright yellow person?

    say it with me, Ste-rio-type. Pro-file-ing. Baff-oon-ery of Latinos.

    There was a character who used to ride with the Banditos in San Antonio called the Frito Bandito. Must admit he was
    an interesting person. Nice person unless you upset him.

    That´s new to me. Who was Jose Jimenez? Another cartoon?

    Speedy Gonzalez was a great role model: friendly, polite, helpful. Even if he set something up that would hurt whatever cat was chasing him, he’d always give his opponent a chance to avoid it. I remember one cartoon where a bank had been robbed and he (basically) spent the whole cartoon bringing the loot back one coin at a time and never complained.

    Nope, just commenting. You’re stereotyping a simple comment.

    this What? I made a comment. I didn’t demand anyone agree or demonize those who don’t. FDGs & PCs do both.

    T V and commercial characters of the 50’s and 60’s were loved by kids. Can’t say that about today’s barrel scrapings.

    No, there is no worse bigotry than ignorant people like yourself stereotyping an entire group of people without really getting to know them first. Can you say stereotyping? Can you say RACIST?

    Oh, right. I’m pretty sure that many Mexican-Americans were just HOWLING with laughter when they were (and still are) portrayed as stupid, lazy good-for-nothings who wouldn’t amount to anything. Sarcasm
