So I am going to follow the advice of TOP GEAR host Jeremy Clarkson and admit it: I need to loosen up, laugh a bit more, and just chill. I mean, everyone knows that the English love to make fun of themselves and other ethnic groups. It’s cool. There is no harm done. We are all want a good chuckle.
Yes, Jeremy, you are right. I was so wrong. Yes, I agree, you were not being vindictive. It was all in the name of three lads having fun, even if Australia TV won’t show your segment on the air. And that last joke you made in your column? You know, this one?
Why doesn’t Mexico have an Olympic team? It’s because everyone there who can run, jump or swim is already across the border.
That joke won’t have consequences. Chuckle a bit, lighten up, and have a giggle, I say.
So, yes, we won’t worry about it. We will have a good jolly laugh over a pint of warm ale. Won’t won’t worry about Smuggle Truck, the new iPhone app that smuggles immigrants across the border and earns you Green Card points. This is all innocent fun.
Nor will we worry about BORDER PORTAL, another great and fun game that you can play to kill illegal Mexicans over the border, you’re right, this is all in the name of humor.
And we will definitely not worry about the following victims who have died because of the whole immigration mess in the United States, because as you say, when you need a good laugh, just tell a couple of Mexican jokes. It won’t encourage more ignorance and resentment, everyone will just laugh. So, yes, we will not be talking about the following people:
Luis Ramírez: Killed in Shenandoah, Pennsylvania for walking down the street with a white woman.
Jose Osvaldo Sucuzhañay: Beaten to death with a baseball bat in Brooklyn, N.Y.
Marcelo Lucero: Stabbed to death in Patchogue, N.Y.
Samuel Baez-Rosa: Beaten to death in Hamilton, Ohio
Juan Varela: Shot to death in Phoenix, Arizona in a drive by incident
Martin Rayez: Beaten to death in Baltimore, Maryland
Brisenia Flores: Nine-year-old shot to death in a home invasion in Arizona by a three assailants with ties to a vigilante border group
We will just keep laughing, as you suggest, Jeremy. You are so right with that. Let’s forget about the tragedies that have occurred in the United States all because of the ignorance surrounding Latinos. No offense, Jeremy, right?
