VIDEO: ¡Ask a Mexican! On Why Mexicans and Salvadorans Hate Each Other
Photo by the Elmo Monster
One of the first articles I ever did for this infernal rag was a review of a Salvadoran restaurant that no longer exists. Although I heaped nothing but praise on the place, the owner never got around to hanging the piece on their wall, mostly because it was a rumination on why Mexicans and Salvadorans hated each other, starring myself, a Salvadoran friend, and the vicious insults we hurled at each other over pupusas and horchata.
Flash-forward 13 years later, and the beef between Salvis and Mexis hasn't stopped--nor will it ever. This is the focus of my latest ¡Ask a Mexican! video.
