Debunking Popular Myths: “How Can Mexicans Be Lazy if They are STEALING ALL OUR JOBS ?”


You should never get advice from someone who has been jaded in love. Beneath that demure exterior lies deep oceans of bitterness and vitriol enough to kill all the hope on this planet twice over. One day I asked old man Charlie: “How is it that some people can hold contrasting opinions at the same time?” He said: “That’s because women cry as a means of circumventing accountability.”  Harsh stuff, but Old Man Charlie had, as the gossip goes, been left by the love of his life. After vowing to never marry again, he grew old and cynical and sadly had only chronic masturbation and the faint sounds of the young couple that he shared a wall with having sex, to rely on as friends. Time and his bitterness has made him stiff, well at least his tube socks or handkerchiefs.

Since that conversation didn’t answer my question, I have continue to ponder how and why people can hold opposing views at the same time. Consequently with that said, today I will expose the popular myth Americans seem to have about Mexicans .

Lazy people do not want to work, they do not like to work, and will avoid work at all cost, even going so far as to take advantage of the government largess in the most nefarious of ways: i.e. staying on welfare, or becoming a politician. So then would someone who has paid thousands of dollars to be smuggled into the US in the most sometimes, inhuman condition, or under threat of being beaten, jailed or even shot to cross the border, in order to go on a job-working spree …would that person be considered lazy? Logically this doesn’t make sense.

WHAT DOES THIS MEAN

It means that we as a culture are hooked on a special brew of xenophobia, racism, class warfare. Few countries do it as well as America. Let me give you a scenario, here is how it works:

It all starts with the 20o year old propaganda machine telling the poor huddle masses from the world they can come here for truth justice and liberty and a chance for economic success. Then targeted countries are selected and either through foreign policy, enforcing certain economic policies, or an assault with ballistic missiles, or through just worldwide catastrophe etc. Then conditions are created where people will have  taken leaving everything behind and move.  Once they are here they are gradually used as tools to scare those of us who are already here. Since we are a nation of immigrants there is a deep-seated fear of losing and missing out on what we feel is rightfully ours.

Does any one remember the Mexican-American war ? Here are some facts:

  • The Mexican-American War was an armed conflict between the United States of America and the United Mexican States from 1846 to 1848 in the wake of the 1845 U.S. annexation of Texas, which Mexico considered part of its territory despite the 1836 Texas Revolution.
  • A month before the end of the war, President Polk was criticized in a United States House of Representatives amendment to a bill praising Major General Zachary Taylor for “a war unnecessarily and unconstitutionally begun by the President of the United States.”

American settlers in Texas, wanted to break away from Mexico, there is long-running political and cultural clashes between the Mexican government and American settlers in Texas.  Texas wins it’s freedom, border disputes soon enough war. Then the huge annex of land from the Mexicans.

Finally

garoto_propaganda5b15dThe idea that Mexicans are lazy is one racist xenophobic propaganda that was spread for a while. Mexicans stealing Jobs is another racist xenophobic bit of propaganda from different era. Mexicans are not any more or less lazy than anyone else, and they don’t really steal jobs from the majority of Americans. It’s not that serious.
