When Chris Rock makes fun of his race, there's no issue. When Kid Rock does it, on the other hand . . . .

Let me also add that you're right to say that the photo implies, assumes, makes fun of the idea that Mexican culture is serapes, yard work, beer, and pot.

About beer and pot, I'd say that maybe Americans ought to look in the mirror. Oh--that's harsh, cause there's more than beer and pot heads in the US.


So also for Mexico, which is a very sophisticated nation, with a very sophisticated history and culture, but which has the unfortunate reality of finding itself sharing a long border--a war-created border--with an 800-pound gorilla.
