No, you implied it in this post.

I was making fun of the woman who didn't speak English flying out of LAX who didn't know what an x-ray machine in an airport was.

Obviously it has bent you out of shape something fierce. Your acting like I used the N word or something. :laughing6

This is a dumb argument.

Let me define PC for you since you don't already know.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Political_correctness

Now stop being PC about the word Hispanic. Political Correctness is Bull-t.

She wasn't Brazilian, she was Hispanic.

Lets define Hispanic shall we.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hispanic

If she would have been from China I would have used the word Chinese.

I guess Hispanic is the new Latin N word.

Go figure.

I am done with this conversation.

Who cares if the word itself is PC? <--That doesn't matter at all. The only thing here that I've been getting at is that you implied that her mental deficiency was due to her being latina - or whatever other politically correct or incorrect word you wanted to use- it would make no difference.

I'm never PC. I'll speak my mind or hold my tongue as I see fit.
Call 'em like I see 'em.

Exactly.
In this case, if you had reffered to her country of origin as the reason for her stupidity then I may have agreed with you. She probably is stupid because she is Mexican and they have a sh*tty public school system in Mexico and she got no education.

You could have said, "cut her some slack, she's Mexican." This would imply that her Nationality is the cause of her ignorance. It would be the same for Chinese, Nepalese, or Sudanese or any other country that has stupid people because of whatever sorry- state of affairs they endure there.

But you asked us to cut slack not because she was Mexican (nationality), but because she was hispanic (ethnicity).

If you meant to use hispanic to imply that she was simply from an hispanic country and not a descendant of the people of that country then I would agree with you, but insist that you were mistaken in your usage of the word.
