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

    Today’s strip is pretty lame, but I guess they can’t all be winners when you have to crank out several hundred a year.

    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….

    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.

    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.

    @mdavis4183

    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?

    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.

    Why, indie! I do think you’re beginning to show signs you’ve actually got a couple of brain cells to rub together! (Though to be fair, I was referring to the lizard part of your brain, not calling you an out-and-out lizard brain. If you were just a brain, how would you type?) Anyway, you may be starting to get the point: as long as you persist in your campaign of whining and pouting, I’ll be here to reflect it right back to you. But here’s the difference between you and me: at least I try to be entertaining about it.
