    Don’t we mean “Murriacist[a]” to keep it Hispanicized?

    How about Racist LA? Just saying…

    It seems Lalo truly hates Murrieta,
    adding to the growing hate in the world.
    If he is speaking for those who need speaking for,
    as he has claimed,
    he may not be helping.

    How is that “hate?” Hate is invoked too easily and readily here—-usually by Conservatives to others.

    While I’m a big fan of the strip, I think we’re kicking a dead horse here….

    Lalo’s concept is that Murrieta is honored by a fictitious magazine that hates.
    How is that NOT hate?
    He then goes on to call an entire town (of which there undoubtedly are those who weren’t involved in the protest) racist.
    You are right – hate is too easily invoked and readily here – only the “here” is Lalo’s comic.

    No, it is both.

    My brother has lived in Murietta since before it was incorporated in 1991. He, like many others, bought a relatively affordable home there in hopes of getting away from all of the crime and congestion in L.A. and Orange counties. Since then, the city has swelled to a population of over 100,000 living in cookie-cutter houses, most of them commuting hours to work on the overcrowded freeways. Oh, and the population is now about 25% Hispanic.

    I agree about kicking a dead horse analogy.
    The media likes these visual displays, this is a type of theater and willing actors who want their 15 seconds on TV and so easily understood by the proles.
    A sorta dumming down noticias.

    And how do you feel about Lalo calling your brother and 25,000 other Latinos racists?

    Interesting considering who the town was named after.

    I doubt Lalo knows or cares that town was named foe Juaquin Murrieta. Maybe he’ll care ifg a member of his family dies from one of the diseases these illegal aliens are bringing in.

    First, you’re wrong about the town’s name. It’s in fact named after the Basque rancher who settled there. Second, your point is roughly as relevant to the racists there as the names Arkansas, Texas, Alabama, and Mississippi being based on indigenous names is to the violent racists living in those states.
    .
    Third, you’ve just once again shown your own racist ignorance when talking about diseases. In fact, children coming from Honduras, El Salvador, and Guatemala are more likely to be vaccinated against communicable diseases than kids in the US are. Are you actually Steve King? Are you going to start going on about calves the size of cantaloupes?

    @indiethink

    Since when does criticism equal hate? Oh, right, it’s because anything that you personally don’t agree with goes straight to the hate-filled part of your own lizard brain. It’s like you’re still at the point where someone telling you that you need to share makes you fall on the floor in a screaming, sobbing puddle.

    @ORMouseworks

    No, ORMouse, criticism like this doesn’t equal racism. By this logic, MLK Jr. was a racist. Despite the fact that everyone these days seems to think the only speech he gave was his “I Have a Dream” speech, he was an extremely sharp critic of the racism of the US South. It’s part of what made him such a great leader.
