Default Lazy Mexican stereotype?

Seriously, where did it even come from? I've NEVER seen a latino homeless beggar in the United States nor any asians for that matter. They're all White and Black.

I have no idea. I wondered the same thing when I saw Lisa Lampanelli do stand up and say something about "Latinos" being lazy and stealing. The dude she pointed out was Puerto Rican I believe, so I started thinking... she's classifying all Spanish speaking people in one category... "Latino"... so MAYBE that's why she says that. It's not the Mexicans... it's probably some other nationality. I don't know though... just a guess! lol

That's actually the only time I've heard someone say something about a "brown" person being lazy. I haven't heard anyone actually say MEXICANS are lazy.

My favorite image is the one of the sombrero'd Mexican sleeping with his back up against a cactus...

What? We have backs made of leather?

Mexican homeless people are homeless for a reason. In Mexico, you see people with missing limbs stumbling around eating gasoline and spitting out fire while riding a unicycle. Or at least trying to wash your windshield with some dirty ass water and towel. Fuck homeless people here, they ain't about shit...

I've only seen two homeless Mexicans, one was old, once begged me for money, water off my outdoor faucet thingy, (where you connect the hose) next I see his bitch-ass on the other side of town with a bottle of vodka in his hand, that was in NC....Another dude down here in SC was young, bald head, with Ben Davis(like a Southern Cali cholo loookin dude), I've seen him like twice in downtown by them salvation army, churches, where homeless people get feed for free, and stuff....

The lazy thing, I'm guessing it comes from not wanting to learn English...

"Look at that got-damn lazy-ass Mexican, you're in America learn English, what's so fucking hard about that?"

or maybe it's that drunk image you see in some...

"He must not do anything, just there drinking all day"

Damn!!! Dejavu! I have been saying that for the longest fucking time. Here in Cali, the white "homeless vets" stake out the freeway off ramps with their beat up old "will work for food" signs. The blacks have a lock on inner city street corners and some shopping centers. When you do see a Latino, he is always selling something, as opposed to begging.

Because of the "Latin/Spanish" label everyone gets lumped together and bear the burdens of each others faults.

Seriously, I always wondered this myself. Now I have seen homeless Mexicans begging but it was once in a blue moon.

Mexicans who would be homeless just find something to sell or maybe wash windows.

If you go to Latin America, many of the would be homeless just fish and grow their own food.

Besides if Mexicans were indeed lazy assholes then nobody would hire them.
Even if they get paid less the laziness and poor job performance means
more hours and more materials to do things over again than normal.

All that money would just add up.

I have read books were mexicans were labeled LAZY and LYING and STEALING. The book wasnt about mexicans, but it was mentioned a few times their experiences. SOme dated back to the 1910 revolution and before.

But the same stereotype gets pushed onto Natives as well. I think the whole thing is because the land provides/ed for us, were as whites and others want more then what the land and available resources provided. Some may say it is a stretch, but just look back at how spaniards and europeans described us and natives.

Then i think the since like in Mexico, they take naps, or supposedly, but whats so wrog with that?

But yes i have seen some homeless mexicans before. But i wouldnt call or term them as lazy. Only whites will be able to tell you why they see use as lazy, ect.

I've never understood where it comes from either.

I've never seen a homeless mexican...the closest to that was a passed out drunk man on the corner of my street, but I'm sure he beloned to someone. lol

All the guys and ladies on the corners asking for money that I see, are white and some are black, but never have seen a Mexican.

If Mexicans were lazy, than whites would not cry about their jobs being taken away.

That's what I've noticed all the time too. The only time I ever saw a Mexican panhandler was in Tequila, Jal. It was a lady with about 3 small children. She was sitting in front of a store, and she didn't even look like she was from around there. I remember when we walked pass her (my grandmother and I)... my grandmother mumbled, she should get up and work if she wants to make money.

Not even. I don't tell him to do anything... I ask him for a trade. That's why I cook for sex. I like to play fair!
