One Policy, One System, Universal Service--The Joys of Monolingual Fascism
Implicit in the critique of stereotypes in Tex[t]-Mex is the revelation that race-hatred, ethnicity-phobia, and malicious scapegoating all dovetail like randy lovers with ignorance, boredom, stupidity, etc. And it may get worse before it gets better. At the very least it is nice to know that at least it is not a new invention. Journey with me now to 1922 and the monolingual wetdreams of AT&T.
