Included in the story, this quote:
"...color is cool and white is washed out."This observation from Gary Bassell, chief executive of Young & Rubicam`s the Bravo Group, an advertising agency that specializes in reaching Latinos - is not racist. Remember that. Neither is this:
Stephen Chavez, a vice president of the Los Angeles-based Latino advertising agency La Agencia de Orci. "Second- and third-generation Latinos like myself want to see characters who reflect their lifestyle and their culture. And story lines that are relevant to our lives."Or this.
"At the end of the day, almost everyone prefers to come home to speak Spanish and watch Spanish-language programming," said David Woolfson, Univision senior vice president for network research.
Indeed. Second and third generation Latinos have no more intention of assimilating into the American culture than does Mario Obledo or the 8-10,000 illegals who entered our nation today...11 September, 2005. The fact that George W. Bush has abandoned all pretense of stopping illegal immigration, that most Hispanic "immigrants" come into the U.S. illegally and that were we as nation to deport the balkanizing horde, secure our borders and enforce our employment laws - as the constitution requires - none of this would be happening, is never mentioned in the La Times piece. That would be racist ....si? The nation-building within the American nation s far ahead of schedule [ they could never have dreamed of a George W. Bush!], and for those who doubt the certainty of future similar stories in their hometown paper... come take a trip through Georgiafornia.
