Pffft. I know many, many people of Mexican descent who would be really offended by that. As an aside, in my adult life I’ve lived in one white-majority neighborhood, one that was almost entirely black, and one where you couldn’t order food or check out at the grocery store if you didn’t know at least a little Spanish. The Mexican neighborhood is the ONLY one where I did not have a break-in and have shit stolen from my car/mailbox/porch. Mainly because, as it was a very poor area, a good number of people around there have… we’ll say questionable papers, and they’re not going to commit an arrestable offense because they don’t want those problems. Straight up, safest place I’ve ever lived.
