Default Louis CK's Mexican Upbringing

http://www.pbs.org/kcet/tavissmiley/...090925_ck.html

I thought this was a rumor, guess it wasn't.

Quote:
Tavis: Did I read - I'm sure I read this somewhere and I don't believe everything I read, but I think this is true. English is not your first language?

Louis C.K.: That's right. Spanish.

Tavis: How (laughter)? I don't mean how. I mean, I know how. I'm just like I never had any idea.

Louis C.K.: I'm curious what makes that so surprising to you.

Tavis: I mean, because you're - I guess it's the way that so many of us got introduced to you comedically. You know, it's possible, obviously. I just never thought of you - I don't know. I didn't process it that way.

Louis C.K.: Well, it's interesting. My dad is Mexican, so I'm Mexican. I'm half Mexican. It's always been interesting to me. It's been an interesting part of my life experience. Yeah, my dad was Mexican and moved here - well, he came here to go to summer school and met my mother, who's American.

But anyway, we lived there for a lot of years. I was born here, but we lived there from when I was like a baby until I was about seven years old and that's where still my grandmother and everybody in my whole family is there. But because of the way that I look, I wouldn't be pegged as a Mexican, which is interesting because I'm more Mexican than a lot of people that are known as Mexicans, you know.

There's a comedian named Carlos Mencia who's very famous for being Hispanic. He's Honduran, German, from California, never lived anywhere else but California. I lived in Mexico, my dad's Mexican, I have a Mexican passport, I have citizenship there.

Tavis: (Laughter) And you're writing Pootie Tang.

Louis C.K.: That's right.

Tavis: I think that's probably why it didn't connect for me.

Louis C.K.: Well, Mexico is - and I'm not trying to say this like you don't know anything, but what I understand is that Mexico is like here in terms of racial makeup. There's a lot of white Mexicans. Actually, my dad's Jewish, Hungarian, Mexican. You know, Mexico is the land of immigrants like here, but they have more brown people because they didn't slaughter the Indians like we did, like they didn't do as thorough a job of genociding their Indians, so the face of the Mexican is more often brown.

Also, people experience Mexicans as that brown guy that comes over and works in my house, or whatever it is. They don't realize that they're surrounded by millions of white Mexicans and also a lot of white Mexicans who stay in Mexico because they're having a great time because white people went everywhere.

Tavis: So the moral of the story is that we're surrounded by Louis C.K.s that we know not of.

Louis C.K.: That's right. Lot of white Mexicans. My cousins all look like me, but they don't speak English.

uh oh, how dare those white mexicans, they better kiss brown ass or someone's gonna be pissed in the usa.

btw, louie is only half right. the indians were slaughtered plenty in mexico, there were just way too many of them to finish them off. not so to the north, where they were so few it wasn't really necessary to slaughter, just to displace them.

The fool read the word "right" as if you were questioning his find and therefore bashing it.

Anywho, never heard of the guy.

Louis CK makes a great point. Mexican is a nationality, not a race. If you are white in Mexico with a non-spanish name you can easily be white in the USA. Louie said himself that "white is a bullshit identity," and that he "doesn't have anything in common with other Europeans in America." Europeans went everywhere, even into the bloodlines of those of us who call ourselves Chican@s.

anyways, louis CK is the man.

Here he is talking about how good it is to be white, so it is somewhat relevant to the thread...
