re: is calling someone a Mexican racist? - TNVolinSpain
[quote]I would just laugh. I've inadvertently been wearing a collared shirt of a similar color to that of the collared shirts worn by a local store, and while in that store I've been asked where such and such is in the store. I just had to correct them by saying, "oh, yeah, I dont work here", and it...

re: is calling someone a Mexican racist? - TNVolinSpain
I have plenty of friends from Mexico and it doesn't bother them at all. It depends on the context in my opinion. If they're from Mexico or have Mexican parents, then I think that's fine. However calling someone Mexican when they aren't, no. I get called Mexican all the time. I'm Filipino-American, a...

re: Charlie Hebdo says frick You to muslim terrorists with first issue since attack - TNVolinSpain
I lived in Paris for a year and made several friends from Mali and Senegal, and all were Muslims. Some have come to live in the US. They always say it's hard living in France being black and Muslim. They say if you're in a group of at least four people, the police will automatically stop you and ask...

re: White Collar: The Final Season Thread - TNVolinSpain
The show's creator confirmed after the finale that Mozzie sees Neil again. When Peter picks up the card at the end it was supposed to mean that Mozzie had been there and he had left to join Neil in Paris. I liked the finale, but I felt as if I saw that ending come from a mile away. I took it as ...

re: Watching Star Wars for the First Time; Any Advice? - TNVolinSpain
As a child, I loved Return of the Jedi more, but as a grew older I definitely favored the Empire Strikes Back more (Which makes me think about the scene in Clerks - Empire or Jedi?). Great films. My friends discussed whether doing the IV, V, VI, I, II, III or IV, V, II, III, VI was better since my f...

re: Best National Anthem at sporting event? - TNVolinSpain
Hate that we have performers sing the national anthem at sporting events. It's better to leave it to the crowd (if some people would actually take the time to learn the words to the national anthem :banghead:) [link=(https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jUtSSGLR06E)]LINK[/link] :usa:...

re: Pam Beesly or Karen Filippelli? - TNVolinSpain
In college, I got to intern with the US State Department and I worked at the US Mission to the OECD. Anyway, my boss, the ambassador to the OECD, was Karen Kornbluh (also known as the Obama brain). She had all the staff over at her place for a party. I got to meet her husband. He introduced himself ...

re: Will Scotland's Vote Today Have A Trickle Down Effect In Other Areas? - TNVolinSpain
I think it was week ago that Barcelona had a 1.8 million people march crying for independence, with a vote on independence planed for November. Spain said they wouldn't approve of any vote without the whole country getting to vote on Catalonia's fate. Otherwise, the Spanish government has said they ...

re: Will Scotland's Vote Today Have A Trickle Down Effect In Other Areas? - TNVolinSpain
Spain stated yesterday that they will block with the full force of the Spanish government any vote for independence, but I'm quite sure Catalonia will go ahead with the vote anyway. I wonder how that would work with the Catalans and Basques on the French side of the border though if such a vote were...

re: Joe Biden refers to Asia as "The Orient", and weak people are outraged - TNVolinSpain
I've never had a problem with it. My mom is from the Philippines and refers to Asians as Oriental all the time, and has never had a problem with anyone saying it to her. She's more offended when people call her Mexican. ...
