im not saying that all mexicans are thugs...or all thugs are raiders fan...or all mexicans are raiders fans...
but there are a lot of mexican thug raiders fans, its not like that stereotype was just pulled out of thin air...
my question is, why is this a bad thing, and why is there an argument...the raiders have a lot of hispanic fans in general...im willing to bet that more than most NFL franchises...that is just circumstance of location/region thing rather than a stereotype thing...so, who cares?...hispanic people make up a huge part of this country...i wish they were ALL raiders fans, thug or computer programmer...who gives a shit...lets talk about something that matters...
and millernation, im gonna start calling you MR. DEVIL'S ADVOCATE...you love to stir shit up...how bout a little solidarity here, in the words of one mr. pink
but i still love you millernation, unless you are a fake raiders fan plant as so many claim...and if you are a plant, i think you need to find some new hobbies
hate on me haters, peace
Where I'm from raider fans are stereotyped as mexican thugs. When I tell someone I am a raider fan, they typically go for the
1. "I didn't know you were ever in jail"
2. "You better hurry up and get your green card"
3. "Please don't hurt me"
4. "Where is your bandana"
5. "Do you where your zoot suit to the games
It didn't use to be that way in the 70's. Then the raiders moved to L.A. and going to a game became a survival game experience. There were lots of violent incidents. the media seemed to deem young Hispanic men as the main problem.
Don't worry Wu-Tang. I'm a raider fan. I'm just not a sheep which is hard for other to handle. According to the council here, I live in a basementl, have homosexual tendencies, supports the crazy right-wing ditto heads that occupy the border and think Arizona has it right in carding all brown people, a liar, blah, blah, blah. It's not about stirring up shit when I challenge what I see as stupid or ignorant comments. When my comments are deemed stupid or ignorant others don't seem to mind saying so. Which is all good with me. Now waiting for psycho-babble from RaiderSilly
