With "Return of the Tres" (brought to life by its mariachi horns) playing and the Silverado driving by the bouncing trucks?

It's like, "Look! Even those crazy Mexicans and their hydraulics think the Chevy Silverado SS is the shit!"

Or maybe it's the fact that they have a very Mexican-influenced rap song going along with it that really gets to me. I don't know. It's either pandering, or insulting; regardless, it rubs me the wrong way for some reason. I'm not usually like this.

They did a Mexican themed commercial for the Impala a couple years back, too.

They can't just show a brown couple going into a dealership and test-driving an awesome car? They've gotta have hopping lowriders to cater to the latino market?

Introducing more space for you and your family to cross the border with!

Although, they probably don't sell to much in Mayheeco.

You know that Brazilian exchange student I mentioned here awhile ago?...

Tonight we played powderpuff volleyball. When he was serving, the annoucer goes "ya better watch out, juniors, for that Brazilian curveball."

Pretty funny, but not mean. The best one is in soccer, when you yell... "Give him the green card!" to a Mexican player. I've never done that though, of course.

Chevy has a commercial running in KC that is Chiefs themed.

They say, "We've been following the Red and White for 30 years...."

Red and White? WTF? Who edited that commercial? WTF?

now that it's more known that there are more hispanic people in america than black people, you will see the marketing start to change.... don't be offended, just recognize the greed... also notice the change in the mtv videos and songs played on the radio.

Red and White? WTF? Who edited that commercial? WTF?That's retarded. Almost as dumb as Memphis Tigers merchandise that features the color orange in anything other than the logo.

now that it's more known that there are more hispanic people in america than black peopleI'll just c&p this:

Are Hispanics a larger population than blacks in the US?

When reading this one must understand that Hispanics are not an ethnic group. To be an ethnic group means a group of people share the same race and a common culture.

Question: Are these people the same race or the same ethnic group?

Black Cubans and white Cubans? No, they do not share the same ethnic group or race.

Black Puerto Ricans and white Puerto Ricans? No, they do not share the same ethnic group or race. Wait until you read the official census for Puerto Rico below.

Black Dominicans and white Dominicans? No, they do not share the same ethnic group or race.

White Mexicans and Amerindian Mexicans? No, they do not share the same ethnic group or race.

This is true: White Cubans and white Mexicans and whites from other former Spanish colonies "may" share the same ethnic groups but, they are in fact of the same race.

This is true: Black Cubans and blacks from other former Spanish colonies "may" share the same ethnic groups but, they are in fact of the same race and are of the same race as African (black) Americans.

Black Cubans and white Mexicans, whites from other former Spanish colonies, Amerindian Mexicans and Amerindians (Natives) from the Americas are not the same ethnic group nor are they of the same race. Because if this were to be true, then white and black Americans would also be the same ethnic group. But, as we know they are not the same ethnic group or race.

Also an historical point to remember. White Anglo and Germanic Americans have a history of discriminating against the white Irish, white Italians, white Greeks and white Spanish people who immigrated into the United States. There is an important reason why "Hispanic" white Americans have push to be listed as "ethnic group" in America, lumped in with black "Hispanics" and Amerindian "Hispanics."

Most television programming and commercials are retarded. The low rider commercial is no more insulting than the standard cowboy commercial- you are just accustomed to one and not the other.
