    To quote Lalo Alcaraz -
    -
    OMFG TACOS ARE FOR EVERYONE!!!!! Get a clue!”

    I didn’t realize that the day laborers are part of the Home Depot organization.
    How does Home Depot handle that “cash only” situation regarding their withholding, and income reporting to the IRS?

    Does Lalo figure Latinos must be honored every year?
    “They finally honored so-and-so last year, but (they’re) not honoring Latinos this year AGAIN.”
    So the “again” is retroactive to jump over the previous year?
    Perhaps it’s Lalo who has a language barrier, as in: he should have paid more attention in school.
    -
    What is with the “language barrier?”
    Lalo, they speak English, apparently well enough to honor Carlos Santana and Martina Arroyo.
    Maybe if you need a Spanish language award, you should look towards the many Latino awards shows out there.
    -
    “Jerks.”
    This must be some of the “jalapeno-biting satirical observations” of Lalo’s “fertile mind.”
    Calling them jerks in anger doesn’t seem to be a good move in having others take you seriously.
    And if they are “jerks” why would Lalo care if they honor Latinos?
    -
    Three strikes – Lalo won’t be nominated into the Brilliant Hall of Fame with today’s so-called, desperate effort.
    But I do give him credit for bringing the serious plight of Latinos here to the world’s attention.

    I’d expect a copycat.
    Not quite as good as I am though.

    I haven’t answered the gender question because it’s far less relevant to discussion here than is someone’s view of the world.
    ME TOO.
    When I mention your use of the terms retaliation, competition, etc., I’m not doing it to feel superior. I’m mentioning them because you are consistently using them, and I’m curious as to why.
    WORDS SEEM TO BE THE BEST THING TO USE HERE.
    The fact that you assume that these questions come from wanting “ammunition” to “win” an argument is an extension of this general outlook. (And by your saying that’s what I’m trying to do, you are also doing that mind-reading thing you profess to hate so much.)
    MAYBE YOU WILL LEARN SOMETHING.
    The reason that I think you only post to the La Cucaracha forums is that your timeline bears this out. It’s quite possible you post elsewhere under a different monicker. But as indie, you do not. I suppose if I were enterprising, had haxx0r sk1llz, and didn’t mind breaking all sorts of laws and codes of ethics, I could possibly find out exactly who you are in real life and then track down from there any other forums you might post to. But with regards to this I am not, do not, and will not. So we’re left with the fact that you as indieonly post here.
    AWW, YOU DO CARE FOR ME.
    Oh, I never said that I’m white. I was just using that “us white folks” for illustrative purposes.
    SO YOU DON’T LIKE INTERPRETATIONS?
    And you’ve still not repudiated the idea of separate but equal, which might lead many folks who read your posts to think that maybe, in fact, you don’t think it’s so bad.
    OKAY, HOW ABOUT TOGETHER AND UNEQUAL? WAIT, ISN’T THAT WHAT LALO IS AGAINST?
    You will probably read some of this as insults.
    MIND-READING?
    But that would be a false reading.
    FALSE MIND-READING?
    So my two questions for you remain, if you ever feel like answering them: What comics do you enjoy?
    I LIKE COMICS WHERE GENDER IS KNOWN.
    And is your outlook fundamentally one of survival through competition?
    I LIKE BETTER LIVING THROUGH CHEMISTRY.

  6. indiethink commented on La Cucaracha 7 days ago

    So because powerful racists and xenophobes have used segregationist arguments in the past, it’s all fine and dandy?
    WHEN DID I SAY IT’S FINE AND DANDY?
    What exactly is your line of reasoning here?
    THIS FORUM IS “COMMENTS,” NOTEXPLAIN YOURSELF HERE.”
    Again, I’m curious as to why in your mind this was done in “retaliation.” In terms of awards shows, why couldn’t it be a way to make sure that worthy people who were not otherwise being honored got honored.
    SURE IT COULD BE THAT. IT COULD ALSO BE RETALIATION.
    In terms of historically black colleges, why couldn’t it be a positive move to try to make sure that black folks who were being systematically excluded from other colleges (like, 100% excluded) were actually able to get a college degree?
    I NEVER SAID IT COULDN’T.
    Again, I’m really curious as to why these things would seem to you to be part of sum zero-sum mean-spiritedness rather than attempts to try to build up communities who are being discriminated against?
    NO, YOU AREN’T – YOU WANT MORE AMMUNITION TO WIN YOUR ARGUMENT.
    You know, an enterprising way to pull themselves up by their bootstraps in the face of a society that is actively denying them other opportunities.
    THAT’S RIGHTRETALIATION.
    It’s simply puzzling.
    I’M NOT SURPRISEDYOU THOUGHT FOOT NEURONS COULD THINK.
    “Are these not enough?” This does, by reasonable interpretation, fall under the “I’ve got mine” rhetoric, as it’s effectively saying that Latinos shouldn’t strive for mainstream acceptance—that’s the purview of “us white folks.”
    I DIDN’T KNOW (OR CARE) THAT YOU ARE WHITE.
    This is reinforced by your continued and really rather shocking defense (or at least non-disavowal) of the rhetoric of “separate but equal.”
    AGAIN, I NEVER SAIDSEPARATE BUT EQUAL.” YOU DID.

  7. indiethink commented on La Cucaracha 7 days ago

    You’ve not answered my underlying question.
    YOU HAVEN’T ANSWERED MY QUESTION ABOUT YOUR GENDER.
    I’m curious why competition, retaliation, etc. are such a large part of your vocabulary.
    I’M CURIOUS WHY YOU NEED TO USE CONDESCENSION, INSULTS, AND TO FEEL SUPERIOR.
    Your assumption seems to be, based on what you’ve written, that this is what drives everything, including the setting-up of historically black colleges and ethnic awards shows.
    YOU’RE ASSUMING AN ASSUMPTION. WELL, WHEN YOU ASSUME, THAT MAKES AN ASS OUT OF YOU.
    I’m not asking about why you’re here.
    NOT TODAY, BUT PLENTY OF TIMES IN THE PAST.
    It’s well-established that you have a thing against La Cucaracha and that’s largely why you post to this forum specifically and none other.
    WHO SAYS I ONLY POST HERE? PERHAPS YOU’RE NOT VERY GOOD AT FINDING OUT.
    Fair enough. What I’m asking about is the underlying stuff. Your philosophy of the world, as it were.
    KEEP ASKING.

  8. indiethink commented on La Cucaracha 7 days ago

    I’m curious why your worldview seems to consistently be filled with ideas of competition,
    YOU CAN FIND THAT ANSWER IN YOUR HEAD SINCE COMPETITION IS ALL IMPORTANT TO YOU. ( YES, I KNOWYOU DENY IT)
    bad intentions,
    AGAIN, YOUR PERSONAL ATTACKS CAN BE DESCRIBED AS BAD INTENTIONS.
    and zero-sum games.
    I AM NOT CONCERNED WITH BEING RIGHT ALL THE TIME, BUT RATHER, POINTING OUT WHEN OFFERINGS ARE BIASED AND DISHONEST.
    And no, this is not sarcasm. And yes, it is genuine curiosity. I’m assuming there’s some underlying philosophy to it, and I’d genuinely like to know what it is and where it comes from.
    IT COMES FROM LALO PRESENTING A POOR PRODUCT THAT IS FREQUENTLY ONE-SIDED AND FOSTERS AN “US VS. THEMMOB MENTALITY.
    U-CLICK ANSWERS CRITICAL LETTERS WITH FORM LETTERS, AND THE NEWSPAPERS ONLY LOOK AT VIEWER NUMBERS, WHICH IN THIS CASE, ARE LARGE BECAUSE LALO PANDERS TO HIS GROUP.
    SO UNTIL I CAN FIND ANOTHER OUTLET TO CRITICIZE THROUGH, I’M HERE.

  9. indiethink commented on La Cucaracha 7 days ago

    The thing is, indie, your initial argument was “Are these not enough?” Which is similar to Southern segregationists pointing to historically black colleges and saying, “Are these not enough?”
    IT ALSO IS SIMILAR TO MANY OTHER ARGUMENTS IN HISTORY. SO WHAT?
    The reason they’re there is because a population has been shut out of other institutions.
    THAT’S HISTORY. OVER AND OVER (DESPITE HAVING LEARNED THE LESSONS OF THE PAST) WITH MANY INSTITUTIONS AND POPULATIONS.
    It’s no reason to not try to open up those institutions.
    IT’S ALSO NO REASONS TO START INSTITUTIONS AND CLOSE THEM IN RETALIATION.
    Now, @jeffmccutchan decided to check the facts, and that paints a different picture of the Kennedy Awards itself, without resorting to a rhetoric of, “I’ve got mine, go get your own.”
    FUNNY, THERE DOESN’T SEEM TO BE THOSE “I’VE GOT MINE, ETC.” WORDS HERE TODAY. IT SEEMS THOSE ARE YOUR WORDS.
    AND IF YOU ARE SAYING THAT’S AN INTERPRETATION, HOW CAN WE TELL THAT IT’S CORRECT?

  10. indiethink commented on La Cucaracha 7 days ago

    So is it sad but true that those awards ignore the non-Latinos in revenge?
