Laugh
Get you a two-piece and a hunk to go

What would you do?

Please go experience another country. For example, in mexico they do not have the sensibilities that we do in regards to race. They make up nicknames which often have racial overtones. Notice I said racial and not racist. There IS a difference.

If someone can laugh at themselves then it is a plus. If they cannot then they have an ego problem. Often the biggest ego's are the weakest and most easily bruised.

there IS a difference no doubt, but the real question is what drives these racial overtones?  Most of the time it is some deeply-rooted prejudice and yes, dare I say it, racism.  frankly I don't think it is funny when Mexicans say ďDonít behave like an Indian" and I wouldn't say someone who is offended by that statement has an ego problem.  If Mexican society is one in which 'light makes right' then surely we can recognize that there are limits to this "humor."
