I find the whole use of 'omg, scary Hispanics' in this joke transcript rubs me the wrong way. It's just like let's shore up negative stereotypes for a quick laugh. There are more creative ways to get a laugh than resorting to cheap 'oh noes, it's the scary minorities' shit. This sort of stuff is the stuff that's really divisive- not asking for rights and respect. If you go around othering folk, how can you be in community with them?
