Are Mexicans Racist Against Half-Mexicans?

[¡Ask a Mexican!] Plus, should Mexicans hate the Irish, and vice versa?

DEAR MEXICAN: Having been called a "gabacho" by "Mexicans" much lighter than I and "wetback" by those whose parents (or who themselves) crossed several rivers as they migrated to California, I'm curious as to which group you believe I should hold in greater disdain. While Anglo wetbacks are much more fun to ridicule ("How can I be a wetback? I'm from Ohio!"), calling those who share my mother's ancestry unpleasant names often leads to angry confrontations (thank God I have my mick father's height and size). I look forward to hearing from you and will ponder your possible reply while I enjoy the repast of corned beef, cabbage and refried beans I've prepared for tonight's dinner. (By the way, it's properly served with flour rather than corn tortillas.)

Villa go Bragh!

DEAR GABACHO: The Mexicans, for sure. Gabachos are naturally going to be Know Nothings, but Mexicans should know better, especially when it comes to our mick brothers. To quote myself from my book, "The Irish were the Mexicans of the United States before the Mexicans. Millions of them migrated to this country destitute, as indentured servants (the precursor to the bracero program) and even as illegal immigrants. They were fleeing a homeland under siege by evil Protestants only to find similar treatment in the States. Gabachos here maligned the Irish for their Catholicism, their funny English, their big families and constant state of inebriation—stereotypes popularized by the mainstream press. The Irish fought back: They formed gangs and voting blocs and—in the case of the Saint Patrick's Battalion—an entire battalion of hundreds of soldiers defected to the Mexican side during the 1846 Mexican-American War.

"But the Irish in America, to paraphrase Noel Ignatiev's famous 1995 book, eventually became white, while Mexicans will forever remain Mexicans in the eyes of gabachos. Nevertheless, the spic-mick connection continues. I know many children of Irish-Mexican heritage who call themselves 'leprecanos,' a miscegenation of the words 'leprechaun' and 'Chicano.' Many Irish-American civic organizations support amnesty for illegals since about 50,000 Irish immigrants have no papers. Mexico and Ireland have harsh laws against illegal immigration and must constantly deal with their idiot cousins across the border, Guatemala and Northern Ireland. And gabachos have warped our precious St. Patrick's Day and Cinco de Mayo holidays into bacchanals of booze and women—on second thought, that's a compliment."

The only other thing I'll say right now, Villa go Bragh, is that everyone knows corned-beef tacos ALWAYS go better with corn tortillas.

 

DEAR MEXICAN: Why do your people hate me? I'm half-Mexican, and I while I don't have the stereotypical Mexican brown skin tone, I'm no different than anyone on Univision! I'd like to know why tienda owners steer me toward the Pepsi when all I want is Sidral, why even people I've explicitly told I am half-Mexican react with surprise when I mainline Pelon Pelo Rico, and why the only Mexicans who show me any love at all are the construction workers whistling at me on the street! And they're probably Guatemalan! These feelings of alienation came to a head last week when a "Mexican" co-worker whose family has lived in fucking Texas for 300 years didn't invite me to a luncheon for Mexicans and other Latinas. What the fuck, Mexican? AND, I'm hot, I'm smart, and I don't smell.

La Media Mexicana

DEAR GABACHA: We don't hate you because you're half-Mexican; we hate you because you're a stuck-up pendeja fresa.

The USA is just SO lucky to be invaded by mega-MILLIONS of cowards who are unwilling to stand up for themselves or socio-economic class and fight their Euro-Spaniard masters OR the scum vermin criminals murdering them and destroying their cess-pool country.

Cowards who fight when they greatly outnumber their prey such as an elderly man or woman they attack and take their wallet, purse or whatever.

Stand up and fight mano-y-mano with fists?

Nope.

Invaded by cowardly vermin.

BAH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Gustavo, Corned Beef isn't widely consumed by the Irish. It's Bacon, fried Cabbage, and potatoes. The "Corned Beef" thing is a Gabacho invention.

Media confundida, we have a strong disdain for you because you claim to be half. You either are or you aren't. I can be Mexican AND I can be something else (black, white, purple, or green).

I'm Mexican American and my family always told me they preferred me to marry another Mexican or an if he's white, a Catholic and better yet an Irish. According to my family "the Irish love their families like we love ours" and are "very hard working and good people". So, they may think you are a gabacho because of your skin, but maybe you'd get props if you wore a 4 leaf clover pin on your shirt everyday!

Oh mexican, you're the idiot. Don't blame harsh mexican immigration laws on Guatemalans, blame it on Mexican toxic nationalism -- the reason they're despised here in the States. mexicans are generally inoffensive when they keep their nationalism (which is often racism) to themselves. But they don't. They hoist their tacky flag and paint their gaudy icons everywhere they infest. Arrogance on beggars is unbecoming.

Dear Gustavo don't be so mean to La Media Mexicana while she does sound fresa, she is right to be a little paranoid. I do know a lot of mexicans that dislike bicultural people especially those mixed with americans (Mexican, hispanic, latino NOT A RACE!)I have a feeling you understand why mexicans would feel that way, not that is right. Anyway it makes no sense, all of us are mestizoz.

Dear mojado . How do you starve a wet back?.... you hide his food stamps by the soap! I must admit, you are a talented writer for a spick. Your mom must he a proud pendeja to have a jota princess like you for a son. Fuck your requonquista. Lol. Keep telling yourself that the beaners are gonna take over California. I grew up here my whole life, and ya there ARE alot more of you, but your still at the bottom. And always gonna be at the bottom. You Mexicans should start breeding with the guatamalans. Half mexi half guatamalans would be an improvement over a full blooded beaner any day. Hey gustabo. I heard your momma swallows a guatamalans load on the daily.

@dangh5 Dude, you can't even punctuate a sentence right.  It's not your fault.  You're uneducated and it's in your power to change it if you work hard enough.  So instead of attacking people over how they look, how they live their life, or the color of their skin, you sit here and puke your lack of knowledge and awareness on us.  Great use of your time!  Soy un gabacho y lo siento para mis otros gabachos que no saben nada.
