    Everybody holds grudges. No way around it.

    No one came to America if they were doing fine where they were, unless they were kidnapped, chained in the bottom of a ship and sold to the highest bidder. Consequently, by Trump’s logic, the only people in America who weren’t the castoffs of some other society are the people who were brought here as slaves.

    Lalo’s depiction of native Mexicans as blood thirsty in today cartoon is both racist and politically incorrect. The Spaniards massacred the native Mexicans by the tens of millions and the Mexicans to this day discriminate(with a few notable exceptions like Benito Juarez) and hold them in a subservient position.

    Lalo is practicing the racism he preaches against.

    I’m no fan of the conquistadors, but the disease they brought killed a lot more than the iron weapons. The same goes for Native Americans here.

    True, though I don’t think that’s what cepa is saying. Just an interesting note—and maybe a both unfortunate and fortunate sign of our times that someone came up with it less than a century ago.
