The ‘Mexicans getting away with stuff’ saga continues
Now here’s David Cole showing that this goes on at a level far above the “get your pets spayed or neutered” bylaw level:
Juan Meraz is the assistant vice president for multicultural services at Missouri State University. He’s also the school’s highest-ranking Latino official. And he really, really doesn’t care for black folks.
Did black students threaten to protest? Damn right, they did. And no one cared. Meraz kept his job, and the black malcontents were dismissed as though they barely existed.
Viewed in light of recent college protests and resignations, this story is really quite remarkable. In December, a white lecturer at Yale was forced to resign after sending an email encouraging the university to allow students the room to be creative in their choice of Halloween costumes. (…)
Black Americans can only bully and caterwaul their way to victory when their targets are “white non-Hispanics.” Hispanics—regardless of how they categorize themselves racially—are unmoved by BLM guilt-tripping, and unafraid of confrontation.
In the US, Mexicans have attained “favoured nation” status among minorities.
As I’ve said here before, at a major conservative event in DC, a veteran anti-immigration lobbyist told me, utterly unsolicited, that American employers prefer to hire Latinos because they have better “attitudes” than blacks. Whatever the truth in that statement, the war for “biggest minority” status is fascinating to observe from a (slight) distance.
