I love Pappy’s comics blog — one of the best in the biz! And I love the treasure trove of stuff he unearths and shares; with or without knowing it, he has curated one of the best short histories of Latina/o representation available on the net! A grand tip of the sombrero to Pappy!
Here’s his latest find! [Mas…]
With all the press he is getting, you would think that Pendejo-of-the-Century Donald Trump had invented all the twisted tales of Mexicans floating on the interwebs.
But our pasty-faced, combover fatboy is not the first and not the last of the foolios who will get rich (and famous) for spouting hate-laced bon mots on the hygiene, sexual practices, and criminality of Mexicans or any other Latina/o for that matter.
Here, in some graphics from the 30s, we see some early 20th Century meditations on Latina/o/Hispanic subjectivities from the pages of Argosy Weekly.
As you can see, pulp magazine editors and illustrators were not ethnographers and whether the subjects depicted are Spanish, Argentine, or Mexican (or Italian — Sylvester Stallone?) is impossible to determine — though I am pretty sure the Buzzard Bait issue features some prehistoric Califas bandidos, and Señor Flatfoot’s “pampas” rogues look like they stepped out of the Mexico conjured in John Huston’s The Treasure of the Sierra Madre (which had not been made yet! Time travelers?) [Mas…]

By now you’re probably familiar with our latest racist media frenzy centered on remarks Kelly Osbourne made on The View, a response to the incredibly racist Donald Trump.

A frightening teen girl in a bikini terrorizes the police force of a small Texas suburb, making them respond with excessive force and brutality reserved only for the worst of America’s swimming thugs!
Who will protect our nation’s pool parties from this monster? Rated R for Racist!
Featuring Emma Stone as the Asian Neighbor. [Mas…]
Bootleg video of a South Park scene (it looks to be cellphone video of a TV screen) shows Cartman’s presentation for the Latino Endowment Committee, featuring special guest star Jennifer Lopez, who eats tacos y burritos, even though she is Puerto Rican. The actual, official clip is here, but for some reason they don’t allow embedding, so neener.
