[UPDATED: Event is THIS THURSDAY] William Nericcio, San Diego State Professor, to Bring his "Museum of Mexican Stereotypes" to Fullerton April 28

Original post, April 5, 3:25 p.m.: This is going to be fun: William Nericcio, professor of English at San Diego State, the nation's premier expert on Mexican stereotypes, and author of the best academic book you'll ever read, Tex(t)-Mex: Seductive Hallucinations of the 'Mexican' in America, will come to Fullerton April 28 as part of my "Gustavo's Awesome Lecture Series!" at the Fullerton Public Library. 

But it's not going to be your average, boring back-and-forth between hack scholars: Nericcio will bring his traveling Museum of Mexican Stereotypes.

More accurately called "Mexstacy," it consists of Nericcio's collection of grotesque Mexican stereotypes throughout the ages: Latin lovers, spicy señoritas, greasers, cholos, illegals, and all other Mexi tropes you can imagine (one of whom you see above in Salma's bountiful bosom glory). He'll have some of them up for viewing before our talk, and afterward, of course. Doors open at 6 p.m. for the exhibit, and lecture starts at 6:30 April 28 at the Fullerton Public Library, 353 W. Commonwealth Ave., Fullerton, (714) 738-6333. Lecture is FREE. See you there!

Coffee in Mexico comes in two flavors: He-man strong and instant nasty. Adding a ton of milk and sugar makes it palatable, even delicious. So what you're witnessing is either an old habit dying hard or an acquired taste.

What's frustrating about it? That 7-11 coffee counter is a mile wide.

".. the nation's premier expert on Mexican stereotypes," Who is the no.2 expert? Is he/she nipping at Bill's heels?

That reminds me - will the Taco Bell chihuahua be there? - "Always after me Lucky .." no, that was the Lucky Charms Irish Leprechan. Oh yeah ... "Yo quiero Taco Bell."

Hopefully, he'll drag along the guy at 7-11 in the morning adding creme to his coffee, stirring, adding, tasting, adding, stirring before meeting with his satisfaction.

This maddening exercise was foriegn to me before moving to Cuernevaca. Milk, being scarce is a comodity in the coffee!

Fuckin' A it's frustrating.

Allow me to educate your ignorance. Based on the ratios in 2010 in a study done by Gutmatcher Institute out of 61 white teenage girls who become pregnant 23 of them will perform an abortion, while out of 123 hispanic teenage girls who become pregnant only 22 will perform an abortion. In other words 38% percent of white pregnant teenage girls will have an abortion while only a mere 18% of hispanics will perform the latter. Concluding that my girls stand up to the responsibility and have the child they conceived while your girls get slapped in the wrist and are taken to the abortion clinic to make everything all right. Read a little, and then speak. Ignorant pig.

That's certainly true, but in California, in 2008, teen pregnancy among 'Latinas' was 66 per 1000 girls/women, but among Anglos 15.4. The whites in even the most 'redneck' states -- Kentucky, Alabama -- have lower teen pregnancy rates than Latinas in enlightened Cali.

You can look all this up at the Centers for Disease Control website.

Stereotypes most often have an element of truth to them -- this one has a large element of truth to it.
