Canyon High's 'YOLO Cholo' at Center of Mexi Dress-Up Day Scandal Tweets "#NOREGRETS at Role, Ridicules Hero Student

CHOLO - Chu Only Live Once!
Some kids never learn...

Elias, the Latino Canyon High grad who came to school wearing house shoes, a sureño blue rag and a buttoned-at-the-collar shirt during June's infamous "Seniores and Señoritas" day is unrepentant about his actions, which include posing between two border patrol blondes faking arrest and then tweeting it out publicly for all to see.

Young Elias did not respond to interview requests yesterday made by a local television news station as the story flared up once more. White privilege-encouraging vendidos stepped up to the plate instead, offering half-baked excuses for all the "fun-loving" Mexi stereotyping and bashing that went on.

But the YOLO cholo was active on twitter hash tagging #NOREGRETS in caps following it up with exclamation point laden "SENIOR YEAR!" Stay, classy! Even as you front Christian on that G.od A.nointed N.ow G.eneration tip! And no, South Park is not going to get your back as you so desperately hope. Their 'Last of the Meheecans" episode was funny. Your schtick? Not so much...

Elias (whose last name we know, but we're holding back because we're still responsible adults, believe it or not--actually, we're saving its unveiling for our Scariest People issue haha) came to our attention via a source when we broke the story back in June. When we posted his publicly available Twitter photo, he threatened to sue us. When we asked for an explanation, he replied with the most juvenile explanation available--"YOLO," acronym for "You Only Live Once."

He's still whining on Twitter (which the pendejo has put back on public as of this writing) that what he did wasn't wrong, that he's going to sue everyone for harassmant, and is Tweeting out photos of whom he considers to be the rat harshing his fun: former Canyon High student Jared Garcia-Kessler, whom the media is depicting as a hero for coming forward and putting a stop to this (without mentioning that we broke the story, but what are you going to do...).

Funny he mentions Kessler. As the investigation into the entire incident occurred over summer break, one of the proposed remedies is the offering up of a concurrent Ethnic Studies course for Canyon students at Santiago Canyon College. Members of the class of 2012, like the priceless Elias, who participated in Mexi-mocking are all graduated and gone, but would have been best served to enroll.

Compare Elias to Garcia-Kessler, who did just that, taking a Chicano Studies course at Santiago Canyon and getting conscious and shit before taking on 'Seniores and Señoritas ' day, helping to rid it once and for all.

Hell, given all that's going on in Anaheim this summer, (and before that) a righteous call for a Raza Studies Program modeled after the ideologically dismantled version in Tucson, Arizona would be well heeded by city school districts. As of now, there's dual-language immersion programs for some elementary kids, but language without culturally relevant pedagogy is a glass half-empty.

Fill it up and there will be more Jared's and less Elias's in Anaheim, Hills or flats...

Tough titties to that little shit Elias! What a pathetic P.O.S. that vendido is! He was sooo desperate to impress his 'friends"  he was willing to humiliate himself and his WHOLE CULTURE to gain some kind of status with these assholes! WHAT a LOSER! Hope you AT LEAST scored a little GABACHA pussy for all your troubles dickhead because they're all LAUGHING at YOUR expense PENDEJO! OH and "ageofknowledge", maybe you should change your alias to "ageofPENDEJADAS" because that's all that seems to come from your tiny little worthless brain! But then again... maybe puttin' down Mexis' is the only way you can feel good about yourself. You and your kind probably see it as some kind of therapy, kind of like mental masturbation for morons?

He goes by Jarred Kessler but adds "Garcia" so he can go on TV and be the "Beaner of the Day". He's a media whore. His boyfriend is totally embarrassed by his phony outrage.

Fucking Mexicans. This kid is so lucky to have a German dad, so he can pretend to be a spic when it suits him and white when he needs to be.

HERO STUDENT???? Please. He's just doing this for the attention and if not he's just a moron. If any of you people really think this is anything close to news worthy you're a moron too. There are SO many things wrong with Canyon High School and this is NOT one of them. If you're Mexican then you should be proud that you have such an interesting culture that makes people want to dress up and celebrate. If they had a day to dress up and celebrate the English I would say "HELL YEAH!" but they don't, they never do and I find that much more offensive than students dressing up and celebrating any culture.  You people are STUPID.

and maybe gabriel can answer this one too, what teacher told jared to lighten up and have a sense of humor?

All the good race guilters are out in force to stop this racist atrocity while they ignore the continuing bloodbath created by pandillero culture.  Much easier to blame whitey when he comes to school with a bandana on his head.  Pobrecitos.

 like everyone said Jared is and was no hero. This is pathetic mockery of news. obviously the author is hispanic  and butthurt about canyon having a great sense of humor.  i laugh. ha.

u mad?

and as for the writer of this article, gabrial san roman, you need to get your facts straight and maybe ask other students, not just jared, about their thoughts on the issue and they will definitely express how much of a hypocritical little girl jared is

like zmoore555 said, this garcia guy is a schmuck. bullied and took advantage of people his freshman year, he is also gets everything he wants and now that he isnt on top, he gets butt hurt and complains for no reason. he participated, uses many racial slurs (i.e. la migra, I.N.S., etc.), and is as far from a hero as the homeless guy on the corner. it should be garcia apologizing for this childish act, not elias. last time i checked the first amendment is all about freedom of speech. and if there was hillbilly day? that would be discrimination and racist to all of those living in the hills of the country. in the end, garcia is a spoiled little hypocritical brat who needs to get over himself and move on. if he had a problem with senior and seniorita day, why didnt this come up his freshman year?

zmoore555

jared Garcia is no hero i went to school with him and had many of the same classes i know that he made racial comments all the time while we were in class. and im pretty sure he participated in the senior dress up week for our class. so he is no hero he is no better than anyone this is just some stupid publicity stunt

Canyon High will also be hosting a Sadie Hawkins day next year.  All students and faculty are encouraged to dress like Hillbillies, stick toothpicks in their mouths and procreate with their blood relatives.

who gives a fuck?.. it was a joke, grow the fuck up. You act like all Mexicans are cholos or the loser's these kids are poking fun of. It makes no sense being hurt over this. It makes no sense to me finding offense to this... me being a Mexican. How are these kids profiting from all this? They're not, it's a freakin joke! If they are, who cares? People can do worse things...

So, if what he was doing was funny, like South Park, it'd be ok?

Aw Don't worry Ernie. Because next year Canyon High is starting a new fun day for students. It's called "Adolf's & Eva's"! So come on down you'll be very popular in the baking contest they have planed. Oh wait! I forgot we won that war. Thanks in part to my cousin Heraldo who lost his life in a B17 on a bombing mission over Germany, or my uncle Alberto who lived to tell tales of how he was a truck driver in the Red Ball Express that kept general Patton's army supplied during its race across Europe. Or my father Arturo who joined the Marine Corps and fought in the south pacific.

 

Just a cross section of Americans that went to war to defend your right to be a SCHMUK! I won't even get into my brothers that went to Viet Nam on your behalf. You sir are not worth the paper to wipe my ass.

Any educated person knows, this stereotype of Mexicans represents a very small percentage of the race. Therefore, if you have actually travelled to Mexico (not Tijuana), you would know what the people and country are about. Educate yourself and your children...I am pretty sure this how Ignorance was born, and is still being taught, obviously.

The school should have given awards for best-dressed.

Put  him & the hueros/hueras to work in the fields in Central California & see if they can work like real Mexicans. Bet they won't make fun of Mexicans anymore.

The adults at the Canyon High never should have okayed this stupid dress up day in the first damned place. Kudos to Jared Garcia-Kessler for exposing these idiots and shutting the shit down. I'm sure the pendejoes from Canyon High will have plenty of Cinco de Mayos to celebrate by wearing somberos and serapes.

 @ageofknowledge Ah,the devil broke into this country "Ilegally" back in 1620,November I think...they landed in Plymouth Rock,ask the "REAL" Natives.And I'll be the first to admit,Our People(Mexicans) have a bad habit of selling dope to ALL of those eager "White Addicts" & yes,we kill our own,its sad.But I thank Our Creator that we dont burst into High Schools, Movie Theaters ,Post Offices & other public places & slaughter innocent people!!

 @CinnamonGirl Aah,they already do that..."procreate" with blood relatives,henceforth the word "Duncle"...inspired by & for their offspring! Duncle,Definition,Meaning & pronounciation...as follows,one who is father to a child bared from incest,most commonly procreated by a redneck couple of brother & sister!

 @ernestogoldstein perhaps you should be asking that of the administrators that not only allowed but encouraged such disrespect.  Goldstein huh, I'd bet you would rush back to that high school mode if just the slightest hint of anti-semitism reared it's ugly head at Canyon.  As for Elias, whites are always looking for their court jesters - glad to see you recognize your role so early in life.  Go ahead and sue, I'd donate handsomely to Jared Garcia-Kessler defense fund.

 @gabrielsanroman and like what cholo35 said, find your sense of humor, get rid of your hispanic bias and get your story straight. you and jared are both imbeciles, maybe write up an article about neil armstrong or something else that actually matters

 @gabrielsanroman OUSD is corrupt and they themselves dont have their facts straight, you sound like you work for OUSD too for you too dont have your facts straight, ask some other former students on the matter and let them show you the truth and how much of an overreaction this is. tough titty

 @murrietta_joaquin Jared Garcia-Kessler is a pussy apologist for all the mexican pregnant teens and gangbangers. Anti-semitism does not bother me whatsoever, so why don't you bet all your money on that one.

 

Perhaps mexicans should do something about this truthful depiction of themselves rather than whine that it's not fair.

 

Again, Jared Garcia-Kessler is a fucking pussy.

 

You go Elias, you are THE MAN!!!

 @ageofknowledge Well,there we have it,a descendent of Davy Crocket.Have you heard of the Cucapah Indian Tribe?"Mr My History Is The Only Right History".And of course anthropologist in the USA wouldnt classify Hispanics/Mexicans  as Native Americans!It suits "YOUR HISTORY" to do so.You still havent touched on the subject of mass shootings of which the "White Population" is responsible for!!

 @ageofknowledge By the way,I like how you ignored the part of the topic that makes mention on the mass shootings by your "White" bretheren,you sneaky little racist you!!

 @ageofknowledge Thanks for making it clear that your ANCESTORS brought all those diceases with them...oh & you forgot to mention another reason why Caucasians have Native DNA...it was mostly rape...dont try to sweep that under the rug!Oh,& the Incas are the ones who had Llamas!Not the Aztecs...you see how "YOUR" history doesnt really stand true!?Keep in mind,EVERY great EMPIRE has come to an end...

 @gabrielsanroman haha funny, whos apologizing? nobody cares enough about this to apologize, people will still dress. what is mexi-mocking anyway? go down to tj and youll see how correct all of the senior classes were in dressing up. are we not to wear flannels? sombreros? ponchos? whats the line?

 @GustavoArellano  @ernestogoldstein

 Are you kidding me right now??? I went to Canyon High School and the white kids there were nothing but tollerant and accepting of other races. If there is ANY racism going on at Canyon High School it's aimed TOWARD the white people, not from it. I am personally offended by your comment Gustavo and half the comments defending Jared bash all the white kids who attended canyon so for all of you, before you accuse people of being racist, try not being racist yourselves for a change.

 @sanchezu Excellent advice to pick up a book.

 

Actually I'm cool as f*ck, I just like to spar wits on here. 

 

There are some very lively personalities, makes for great debate.

@ Gussy-boy: Oh you mean the "truth" that whiny pussy-boy Jared is a hero of sorts?

 

Yeah, that's some REAL truth there, bud...

 

Oh, and I'm not speaking, I'm typing.

ernestogoldstein
ernestogoldstein

 @GustavoArellano Speaking of stooping so low to be a bitch, Gussy-boy. Gabriel sans Roman calling Elias (the TRUE hero) an asshole and me calling Jared a pussy are really not that far apart. In fact is really just a few inches apart between an asshole and a pussy, you should know Gussy, just look down!

 @murrietta_joaquin  @sanchezu Murrietta, let us look at your faulty logic here; so in your reasoning, one's ability to read a book depends on their ability to afford a mexican page turner?

 

Are you aware of my financial situation? Didn't think so murrietta.

 

Nice try though...

 @ernestogoldstein  

 funny, last i checked 16 and pregnant wasn't about latinos... and last i checked there were the same number of biker gangs, skin head gangs and meth dealers as there are latino gangs. So maybe this so-called depiction of our people is really more of your lack of education and abundant hours in front of your tv. Pick up a book for a change.

ernestogoldstein

 @GustavoArellano Keep apologizing for the pregnant teens and gangbangers, pendejo apologist! Truthful depiction of your people indeed!

murrietta_joaquin
murrietta_joaquin

 @ernestogoldstein  @murrietta_joaquin anti-semitism doesn't bother you whatsover? - you are cut from the same cloth as Elias.  And no, Jared is not apologizing, that would be Elias apologizing for being Mexican and you apologizing for being Jewish.  If you hate yourself it is so much easier to hate others.  Jared fought and won, he has more courage than you can ever comprehend.  

 

As for truthful depiction, I'm Mexican, graduated from an Ivy League school, set up several businesses, have a beautiful family and founded and volunteer at several community based non-profits - do you think you can embody that with a stupid costume.
