Weekly Dumba$$ - Lady puts baby through airport x-ray

"A screener watching the machine's monitor immediately noticed the outline of a baby and pulled the bin backward on the conveyor belt."

They mention that she doesn't speak english like that is some excuse for putting the baby through the X-Ray shoot. Are Latino X-Ray machines not hazardous to your health?

Cut the woman some slack, she is 58, hispanic, illegal, doesn't know a word of English, and doesn't understand modern technology. She probably hasn't ever scene a car before last week much less an airplane or an x-ray machine.

I'm not cutting anybody any slack for being hispanic. Being hispanic is not a factor that limits your intelligence or capacity for intelligence. X-Rays have been around since the turn of the century and are prevalent in "hispanic" countries. There are plenty of hispanic people who are knowledgeable about X-rays, use X-Rays, build X-rays and decipher X-Rays for medical diagnoses (doctors).
I'll cut someone slack for being born into poverty and being brought up without an education. Bur asking me to cut someone slack because they're hispanic is
teh racism

Cut the PC bull-t.

She IS Hispanic and DOESN'T speak a word of English. Last time I checked Hispanic culture is different from American.

Why the was she even here in the US? My Guess, she is illegal or her family is illegal. The minuite men need to make this lady their new poster child.

She can take your PC anchor baby bull-t back to Mexico City where she belongs.

PC!
man, It'd be sweet if you met me!
You'd be hard pressed to find someone more anti-illegal immigration than myself. I'm for rounding 'em up and sending 'em back. Give me a Uhaul truck and I'll go down to washington and Shepherd and do it myself.

However, I'm for sending 'em back because they are here illegally and they create drains on our resources. I'm not sending them back because of their ethnicity.
Hispanic culture cannot be compared to American culture. Hispanic is a term that describes someone as having ancestry linked to Spain or Latin American countries. All you need to be American is citizenship.
You are implying that she made this stupid mistake because she is hispanic, not because she is ignorant, which is the case.
I'm not being PC, I'm just not being racist.

Then we agree on this issue.

Once again, we agree on this issue. This particular 58 year old Hispanic woman didn't have the knowledge to understand what exactly an X-ray machine was meant to do. She obviously caused a scene because we are discussing this on the internet here in Texas and this happened at LAX. This is a poster child example of why illegals should not be allowed into OUR society.

Once again we concur on this issue. She is a member of Hispanic culture and obviously lacks the basic knowledge of OUR culture to be able to get through an airport without incident.

Which applies to this particular 58 year old, Spanish speaking Hispanic.

Which she is obviously not because she doesn't speak a word of English and can't get through an airport without makings national headlines.

No, you are making the word "Hispanic" out to be a derogatory term. I was making fun of the illiterate Hispanic 58 year old grandma who send her grandchild through an x-ray machine at LAX. If I wanted to describe this woman in a derogatory terminology there are several other words or phrases that I would have chosen. Instead, I labeled her "Hispanic", which she is.

Cut the PC bull-t and lets stick to bashing the 58 year old, Hispanic, illegal, illiterate woman who doesn't understand modern technology.

You asked me to cut her some slack because she is hispanic. I'm not bringing into question the intended meaning of the term 'hispanic' I wasn't implying that you used the term in a derogatory manner, I'm saying that you asked that I forgive her stupidity because she is hispanic - like being hispanic is something that causes stupidity. She likely is stupid because she was born poor in Mexico, Honduras, Guatemala, El Salvador, Nicaragua, Panama or some other place to be born poor. She's not stupid because she's latina.

I figure that there are plenty of dumbasses right here in the good ol' U.S. of A that are stupid enough to do the same as her.

But they don't go to airports.
because they can't afford the plane ticket.
Because NOLAS stole all their money.

Realize that you are perceiving the word Hispanic as derogatory. Your perceptions are flawed. Reread what I stated above. You do not take offense to her being 58, illegal, putting her grandchild through the x-ray and Spanish only speaking but you take offense to a label referring to her cultural origin? Would you rather I have called her equatorially challenged while flying through LAX today?

She is Hispanic, get over it.

Take your PC bull-t about being labeled somewhere else, you will get no audience on the matter from me.

Looks like I got plenty audience.

I don't have any problem with the term hispanic. Like I said, it simply refers to someone of Spanish or Latin American descent.

You implied that her being hispanic was a reason for her stupidity.

Who cares if the term is derogatory or not. That's beside the point. You could have used any number of other words that identify ethnicity - derogatory or otherwise - the word itself makes no difference. The point is that you said that she's stupid because she is latina.
