Here’s one way to assuage the anti-Hispanic immigrant crowd. Tell them you’re going to breed and take over shit and kill all the whiteys by spitting on their spoons at fancy restaurants. America Ferrara isn’t Mexican but she had a picture of her Honduran grandmother in her dorm room at USC so she penned an open letter to Donald Trump about his views on Mexican immigrants. She got it published in The Huffington Post. Not everybody can do that. Just kidding. Everybody can.
Trump never actually said Mexicans are rapists and drug dealers. He said the Mexican government was pushing their rapists and drug dealers to immigrate to the U.S.. I don’t know it that’s true or not, but it certainly makes sense if you’re running Mexico.
Reminding us that people who write open letters need to be sent to a remote island and consumed slowly and painfully by Hantavirus, Ferrara starts off:
You’ve said some pretty offensive things about Latino immigrants recently, and I think they’re worth addressing. Because, you know, this is the United States of America, where I have a right to speak up even if I’m not a billionaire. Isn’t that awesome?
Anyway, I heard what you said about the kind of people you think Latino immigrants are — people with problems, who bring drugs, crime and rape to America. While your comments are incredibly ignorant and racist, I don’t want to spend my time chastising you. I’ll leave that to your business partners like Univision and NBC, who have the power to scold you where it hurts. Instead, I’m writing to say thank you!
Ferrara lays down a series of stats cut and pasted from Wikipedia about the ivy like growth of Central Americans in the U.S. I didn’t have any particular feelings about America Ferrara before her open letter, now I want to stuff Donald Trump’s hair weave in her face and see if she knows the word for ‘stop’ in Spanish. Penning an anti-Trump letter on HuffPo is akin to San Dimas High School football rules! Find the most sympathetic audience possible, tell them exactly what they want to hear, and show off your ability to write in the colloquial style of tweens. Is this progress? It feels like progress.
Ferrara is right about that Latino takeover. That’s happening whether you’re preaching Reconquista at La Raza BBQs or wearing a Cesar Chavez Was an Asshole t-shirt and screaming at Spics to go home. The Mexicans and everybody else we call Mexicans because that’s just easier are here to stay. Trump won’t win. None of this will have anything to do with Ferrara’s open letter, but expect some diversity awards to be handed out regardless. You can’t call it politics unless it’s pointless from all angles.
