    I will admit that is probably, sadly, the case… ;)

    There is a character with Latino sounding name in one of the largest Science Fictions series but somehow I doubt a Wookiee quite what Lalo had in mind.

    Can we please end the Great Hollywood Inequality Conspiracy now. If you want to watch Latinos watch Telemundo.

    Given Lalo obsession with Latinos in the movies, was he rejected by Hollywood as a movie actor wannabe or movie extra?

    No Indians, Orientals, or several other ethnicity’s either. Just sayin’.

    “Chewbacca” sounds Latino?
    I still remember the Time Magazine article that mentioned the character with the aside “(He doesn’t.)”

    Chewy, it’s a joke that’s been around as long as Star Wars.

    It’s been well-established in this week’s comments that a certain set of people are perfectly happy in lily-white fantasyland. And that they don’t understand the concept of riffing on a theme. To a whole lot of folks (including me), this is a theme well worth visiting and revisiting. And if you don’t like strips being run about it, well, you’re just gonna have to suck it up, Buttercup. Because I predict you’ll be getting about three more on the same theme this week. Pobrecitos.

    Hey, here’s someone who’s actually trying to make a point by listing (partially flawed) facts. Banderas isn’t Latino; he’s Spanish. Bardem is also Spanish. There is, in fact, a difference. Del Toro does have a role in Guardians of the Galaxy itself. Trejo of late has been in about a million small roles in small projects and is in production for about a million more small roles. Not really starring in stuff. Desi Arnaz is, well, long ago dead. Hayek hasn’t starred in any movies this year aside from a voice role. Andy Garcia has been in a few small roles. Smits has been busy with Sons of Anarchy. Diaz, as much as the vast majority of folks skip right past her name and gaze lovingly at her blonde hair and blue eyes, is half Cuban, and stars in Sex Tape. So yes, there are some Latinos working, though not as many as zippy might assume, and not all in the prominence that zippy might imply.

    No. We cannot. If you want to read something not political read Ziggy.

    Beating a dead horse.

    indie’s formula is to find a single comic artist to whine about and repeat ad nauseam.

    How is crying about this helping?

    Does he expect the Republicans to pass a law to put less La Cucaracha on the web?
    And apparently indie knows nothing about issues of power, economics, historical advantages and disadvantages, and the like. Which is, like, totally and utterly unsurprising.

    Aside from the offensive terminology, it’s a fair point. And one that really needs to be worked on in parallel with what’s being brought up in this strip. Which basically means white folks in power need to take some real responsibility for the issue, or their power needs to be seriously eroded.

    for pity sake, what about bosnians? and why should anyone care about the ethnicity of the trash that comes out of hollywood, drug capital of the US.
