    A Day Without a mexican

    Discussion started by High Priest - May 14, 2004

    A day without a mexican.

    While we haven't actually seen this film... the advanced publicity alone has peeked our interest. A Day Without A Mexican is a politically progressive film that deals with the subjects of immigration, labor, exploitation, race, and how these issues converge in California. The film's advertising campaign has so far utilized controversial billboards that read, On May 14th There Will Be No Mexicans In California. Almost as quickly as the billboards went up, some began complaining about their controversial text... apparently thinking the signs where sponsored by an anti-Immigrant organization bent on mass deportations!

    I heard about this on NPR over here in new england. It seems like they're trying to accentuate how much hispanic people (illegal immigrants mainly) contribute to the economy and daily life over there.

    Serious shit to observe. The South East definately has an increased population of Mexicans due to the abundance of work available in the tobacco biz. Mexicans are allright with me by the way. I want to get a glimpse of that flik so I can get up on some things I would be too lazy to read about.

    Yea, well it would make sense..in los angeles only 10% of the population is "african american".. the majority are of latin decendence.. so if all those people were just randomly to pick up and leave a large void would be felt in the wake of their abscence.

    Latinos make up roughly 40% of L.A... Blacks are more like 14%. Whites make up about the same as Latinos because of all the suburbs and outlying areas. However the White percentage continues to fall and the Latino population continues to rise.

    It didn't used to be like that. When my dad was growing up in L.A. during the 60's he said he hardly saw Mexicans, except for in East L.A. where they've always been. Since then, they've spread out to areas that were traditionally either white, black, or asian. Go to North Hollywood, Compton, and Chinatown and you'll see what I'm talking about.
