Promise and Reality of Immigration

Immigration in two pictures.

Sexy enough for any man to want, wearing a cowboy hat because she wants to assimilate, and the beach beckons us all on the Golden Coast.
The Promise

Santa Muerte, an even odder Catholicism than the Irish, and not really caring about assimilating because the television told them not to bother.

What is odd about Irish Catholicism, beyond it being unprotected from attacks from all sides?

Ha! Is that Raquel Welch in the cowboy hat?

If so, that's a name i haven't heard for quite a while.

Re. Peterike's liking of alt-folk, and recalling my earlier praise of the musicianship of J. Tillman, aka Father John Misty, here is his new release album.

The first song on the album, "I Love You Honeybear" is quite good.

By the way, Jason Isbell is scheduled to do a show in my neck of the woods. I may go see it.

Santa Muerta was featured compellingly in a scene or two from Breaking Bad. Whether or not it was developed as a theme for the backdrop of the show is another question.

Certainly it reflects the more likely reality of immigration better than the hot babe - unless one is lucky in love and life, in which case it is sex on the beach with the white hispanic. She is not wearing any pants in that photo, so it is implied that there is easy access to her vagina, which is a good thing. Or is it?

The linked wiki article is lengthy. It says in the introductory paragraph,

Since the pre-Columbian era Mexican culture has maintained a certain reverence towards death

Mexican culture would include a lot of different groups and stuff, but that is a pretty glossy way to describe it and get around the live human sacrifice. But it turns out that they are still sacrificing people, with the help of this hot new belief system. The section on the sociology says,

Devotion to Santa Muerte is what anthropologists call a "cult of crisis". Devotion to the image peaks during economic and social hardships, which tend to affect the working classes more.

So it looks like it will be more common if there are more crises, or something. Great!

It is interesting to note how awareness of this belief system will, or already has, broken into the mainstream. I for one am looking forward to the hot new death skeleton sex parties which will feature desperate women for sale.

Yeah, every now and then you hear some idiot say that all of this Latino immigration is great for American guys since it brings in hot, lusty Hispanic women. I just laugh.

Based on my experience passing through the vast Latino barrio/wasteland near my home in Atlanta (Buford Highway) is that the overwhelming majority of their female immigrants are of the rural, heavily or full Mestizo variety - short, squat, and dark. And they have 4-5 kids in tow by age 25, pushing strollers down the road with all of their brood trailing behind like a flock of ducks and playing a high-stakes game of frogger in traffic because they're too lazy to obey crosswalks and traffic signals. And (unlike American women) they don't understand how to choose clothing appropriate for their figure, in that they all wear super tight jeans, with a tube top pressing their muffin top out of the sides.

If a healthy portion of these illegals looked like Penelope Cruz maybe I would be all for it.

The only exception is Brazilian immigrants, but I think the Brazilians who have the ability to make it to the USA are generally of a higher class than most Mexican or Central American immigrants (and this means whiter in hue) and there's certainly fewer of them. There's a small Brazilian area nearby and on occasion I do find myself distracted by some female when driving through.

Incorrect image of the promise. For common people mixed with Native Amerindian in Mexico, Colombia and Chile (Central/South America), or Indians in South Asia, their entertainment culture is all about the blonde female, think Hollywood icon Marilyn Monroe, except speaking Spanish. They see a blue light, the whole water Mermaid princess, except it isn't a woman nor a mother and it's really a sea monster (a vicious animal whom lies about what it really is). Something that drains one of life, goodness, beauty and reality. It's inhuman and wants the riches of human sacrifice. Redheads are all about neutrality (balance/harmony) and being a universal human representation of both life and death, whereas brunettes are like the sisters of the redhead.

Alcestis - That is Raquel Welch, one of the most gorgeous women in the history of Hollywood. While she is not how the Mexicans might envision the perfect lady, that is the "sale" to Anglo men: a woman who may be noticeably different but is incredibly sexy.
