  •  If we HAVE to make stupid generalizations, (10+ / 0-)

    I'd start with actual experience:  I envy the work ethic of most of the Mexicans, Salvadorenos, etc. I've encountered.  I am WAY lazier than any Latino I have ever met.  And I was explicitly taught that flipping burgers was beneath me, which was stupid, but definitely a German thing of "you will work with your mind, not your body."  I do work hard with my mind, but it's a completely different skill set, and the Latino entrepreneurs I see every day definitely show me where my weak spots are.

    And come on, my goodness, we've got a generation of white guys calling themselves "slackers."  What is it with the upside-down world of RWNJs?
