La Cucaracha by Lalo Alcaraz for September 26, 2004
Eddie: It's Hispanic Heritage Month again, Cuco. Aren't you excited? Cuco: "Hispanic Heritage Month" is useless! It starts on the 15th of the month...what? Chronically tardy Latinos can't get to the month on the first? And exactly which heritage are we supposed to commemorate? Hatred and discrimination between Latinos? Genocide of indigenous peoples by Europeans? Rampant high school and college dropout rates? I can't figure out why people even celebrate it... Man with money: Hi there! I'm from FordCoorsMicrosoft, Inc., and we'd like to sponsor this comic strip's Hispanic Heritage Month celebration. Cuco and Eddie: Happy Hispanic Heritage Month!
