"How we fucked the Folks Downstairs"
A twenty second history of U.S./Mexican relations. Ahem. First off we stole half their country. Then the damned French tried to install a Hapsburg Emperor on them. From there Mexico was off to the races.
A later Revolution/Civil War was the icing on the bitter cactus cake. Been a bloody madhouse down there ever since. Especially lately with the drug demand from the States. This causing a break down of order, and civil services. That, and mayhem'n slaughter to Northern Mexico.
Did I mention the Gringos treating the Mexicans like shit in their 'own' historic lands forever? This is up there with Slave holding lynching, and killing Queers in the "Hall of American Shame".
However change if not Hope is o the move. As a Hispanic radio DJ in LA just said, "...we're taking back our country block, by block..."
He ain't kidding either. 60% of the greater Los Angeles area is Mexican. The rest of the former Mexican States are now or will be soon Majority Hispanic. How about that huh. Justice is famously slow,...but it's sure.
So the Gringos can build all the Berlin Walls they want. Also that jazz really makes us look really bad. We might ask our Chinese pals how well that "Wall" idea works. We can be so fucked up sometimes.
California,...well southern California, and the rest of the Southwest is reverting to it's natural state...Mexican.
You moving West? ...learn Spanish.
Yeah sure there's tons more history emotion this, and that, but this is all ya need to know.
