Wow. That's depressing. But they're okay with Latinos playing MLB?? I guess only those who learn to speak English?

What was I thinking while he sang? That it was one of the best renditions of the song I'd ever heard.

In my current job, I regularly speak with people around the world. They all make a concerted effort to speak English. I rarely see Americans (myself included) making any attempt to speak theirs.


i was in montreal like, 5 years ago, and i felt so bad that i didn't know a lick of french. now, i was with people who could translate so it wasn't an issue. plus, i dont think i ran into anyone who didn't know basic english (and montreal is big enough to be able to cater to english speakers) but every time i was in a situation where i was talking to a "stranger" i think i always said a "im sorry, do you speak english?" type statement. i felt like a huge rube.

i took like 4 or 5 years of spanish in high school/college but since i don't use it, it's pretty much gone.

Gross. It's awful to be racist, but to be so actively hateful that you photoshop a picture from a protest about a murdered child to make a disgustingly bigoted joke is just... I hate people sometimes.

How do you know it is photoshopped? I gis'ed "1 of my 13 suns" but came up empty. Do you have the access to the original?

I'm guessing the sign itself may be authentic. But given the tea party signs over the years, a bit of the pot calling the kettle black here.

I could not be more certain that the sign is fake. I would bet either one of you $100, right now, that the original sign was correctly spelled and/or had a different number of sons. I am not joking, we can PayPal a 3rd party moderator (planet? She seems trustworthy enough) $100 for anyone that wants to take the bet. If/when one of us finds proof that the sign is legitimate, the winner takes the pot.

There is no chance that sign is real and it's [expletive] disgusting that it was altered.

wheres my money

i too thought it seemed easily identifiable as shopped. i was glad to find the original (and quite quickly/easily). i hope luke responds with the link to the original to whomever posted it...though its probably not worth the trouble either.
