Like the blog good stuff
I have a lot of PDF theory books and I originally thought that this one was in Spanish, it's not. That's why I deleted all the comments, they didn't make sense considering the book is in English after all.To summarize the comments I deleted:Someone got pissed because a used the "G" word- Gringo, and made a comment that I was racist. I replied that the person was humorless and needed to pull the big stick out of their ass. After all, I am as much as of a gringo as anyone so I canuse the G word when I'm talking about my peeps. Just like a brother can use the N word without being a racist.I do have a lot of relatives in Little Rock who eat gravy for every meal, wear flannel, truckers caps and say things like,"We're gonna learn you good boy."
I'm a gringo in the morning,A big ol' gringo at night too.Valdez is a gringo who can't even speak-a spanish in the morning.I can, even though my names even more gringony sounding!I give him permission to use the word as much as he wants even though he's not as anglo-looking as me.(I ran out of witty things to say. I was sort of imagining this being sung to one of those schoolyard melodies like the opening tune on "We Want Miles.") Why y'all got to be so uptight about this? I do think it's taking things a little too far when one of our local indy bands shows up on stage with a t-shirt "Nigga for president," but let's get a fucking grip people!!cheers
I need a 'Gringo for President' T-Shirt!
I wrote that late at night. I guess we'll see whether it provokes another round of "Bob Mover posting" comments. I forgot to add that the first part of that I imagined to be sung with an accent not unlike that of Cheech Marin, the Latino art impresario.
