La Cucaracha by Lalo Alcaraz for August 13, 2010
Cuco: Your boss has private prison lobbyists on her staff, doesn't she? Memo: Oh, si, Governor Jan Brewer has many connections to Arizona's prison contractor, Corrections Corporation of America. Cuco: So she can arrest Latinos and funnel the funds to CCA! Memo: You know what they say: "follow the mummy."
While in Guatemala, I observed a hierarchy: Criollo > Criolla > Mestizo > Mestiza > Indigino > indigina. Not certain where the blacks and half-blacks fell into the pecking order. Taking history in college told me that a similar hierarchy existed throughout Central America. Point being, at least in modern Guatemala, that “hispanics” don’t consider themselves to be a single demographic, thus it is rather reductive of us to lump them all together.
@Vic: You’re right, my comment from a few days back was precipitous.
