Re: “Tucson Novelist Thinks Maybe It's Time To Just Start Writing Porn

"Put it in", she pleaded. "It's not going to fit", He offered, reluctantly. "God, I need it", she looked around desperately. "Isn't there something?". "Well, I could go to the store and get an appliance bulb, that might work." " Fine, but hurry, I can't find anything in that damn refrigerator without a light"

Re: “Protesters Swarm Mexican Restaurant Illegal Pete's Opening Night: 'Racists Enter Here' (SLIDESHOW)

Reading the comments proves the student’s point. Lots of ethnocentrism out there. As a Tucson native I've always found it interesting how we live in a city so divided that all the “Mexicans” are concentrated and then pushed to the perifory in their own little pueblito of South Tucson. Yeah, sure we are everywhere, but the Old Pueblo was not our’s . It’s easy to make generalizations about the consistent pattern of marginalization my brown brothers, sisters, our parents and abuelos experienced even though we had been a part of the landscape for generations and quite frankly continue to experience it’s remnants in well established patterns that dominate our daily lives. Those of you who can't fathom such a possibility are beyond arguing with. You are blind. It is so much a part of your reality that you can't possibly see that others are offended. It’s not about being politically correct. It’s about a history of epithets that continue to this day. “Illegal” is just code for spic, wetback, greaser, and everything else that has been used to separate and degrade us. So no I don't expect those of you who don't get it to understand. And I I'm not surprised so many jump right on the bandwagon waving the flag of oppression as a good thing. For many people it is just the way things have always been, but some of us are no longer going to sit idly while it continues and not bring it to your attention. So throw more epithets and ignore reality all you want. Your worst nightmare is about to become a reality. Equality and consideration of others is on the horizon. Sí se puede.
