It seems I receive at least one offensive email a week. I do enjoy jokes of all kinds, usually ones most people may consider offensive themselves, whether they are about sex, religion, etc., but some of these emails are pure examples of horrible ignorance and xenophonbia. From now on, I will respond to as many of these emails as possible in an attempt to educate ignorance and add some humor when I can. I recently received an email with the following comment and map: "A GUIDE TO HELP MEXICANS UNDERSTAND-SIMPLE @ TO THE POINT."
"Simple @ to the point?" The creator of the email doesn't know the difference between an @ and (&) an ampersand (&)? Just further examples of ignorance.
This is how the email should look and read:
A GUIDE TO HELP THOSE PEOPLE OF EUROPEAN DESCENT UNDERSTAND, SIMPLE & TO THE POINT.
OH YEAH, SOMEONE ELSE WAS HERE BEFORE US!
UP UNTIL ABOUT 160 YEARS AGO (the American invasion of Mexico for imperialist Manifest Destiny purposes), ARIZONA, NEW MEXICO AND AT LEAST MUCH OF, IF NOT ALL OF, CALIFORNIA, TEXAS, COLORADO WERE A PART OF MEXICO. MEXICANS COMING OVER THE BORDER AREN'T FLEEING THEIR COUNTRY, THEY'RE SIMPLY RETURNING TO PLACES THEIR ANCESTORS USED TO LIVE. ALSO, MANY OF THOSE COMING ARE FROM CENTRAL AND SOUTH AMERICA, SURVIVING GREAT PERIL TO GET HERE.
