Some things just aren’t racist according to the self-appointed arbiters

I started singing the Frito Bandito song the other day and the person I was with had no clue what I was doing. (I think they must have been out of the country for a couple of decades.)

I explained how the commercial was seen as HIGHLY RACIST!!!! They asked if it was offensive as the Lucky Charms commercials that still run today.

 

The Frito Bandito is widely panned as “racist” and the commercial, nor the jingle, is nowhere to be found.

If you’re Irish, however, you’re still seeing Lucky Charms commercials. Whatever is found offensive in a corn chips commercial is somehow lost when spoofing the Irish.

  1. I was going to make a racist comment but then realized that being a conservative, everything I say is considered racist.

  3. @JD, OK, even I cringed at the Kool-Aid.
    Don’t think I ever saw that one.
    We didn’t get a TV until I was 7.
    2 stations, you had to move the rabbit ears between.
    Turns out Theodore Geisel was a racist too.

  4. It was one of the first guilt trips the Mexicans laid at the feet of Whites while demand we look the other way to their criminally, illegal immigration, refusal to learn English, General anti white racism, and welfare exploitation.
    If you don’t push back and ALLWAYS tell them to go to hell they will just push harder on the next imaginary insult.
    We should have answered with: you bastards shouldn’t even be here to complain about commercials for snack foods you don’t even eat.

  5. A little early, but since we’re on the subject: An Irish Blessing for St. Paddy’s Day . . . “May you escape the gallows, avoid distress, and be as healthy as a trout.”

  6. My Grandma used to call Brazil nuts nigger toes. Guess she was a racist so I can blame mine on heredity.

  7. “May the road rise up to meet you, may the wind be ever at your back. May the sun shine warm upon your face and the rain fall softly on your fields. And until we meet again, May God hold you in the hollow of his hand.”
    Taught to me by the owner of Ned’s Pub.
    Immigrated in his 30’s, did quite well for himself.
    The pub was named after his Da that’s what he always wanted.
    We have had some laughs about an Irish man wanting a pub.

  8. Wyatt, back in the Sixties, my neighbors used to patronize a place called Mammy’s Shanty in Atlanta. Being good, young, Sixties liberals, my parents refused to eat there. That place smelled so damn good whenever we drove by. Never got a chance to taste the racist food.

  9. At least the Irish have some redeeming qualities; my Grandfather went to Texas to kill Mexicans with Black Jack.

  10. Who remembers Lawrence Welk?
    My grandma’s favorite show. Whenever Arthur Duncan was on she would say.
    “I don’t have anything against black people, I just don’t understand why they have to put them on the teevee.” LOL

    Those are my roots I am to be cursed as a racist as well. Except I virtue signaled by choosing Mrs Frank whose family immigrated from Mexico in the early 1900’s about the same time as my family did from Europe.

  16. Guess no island dweller or lunatic liberal is offended by this either, https://youtu.be/VYky7qkd7VU .
    Strange. Plenty there for racist leanings and cultural appropriation claims. Even gender fluidity could be addressed – it is a banana in a skirt, after all.
