Re: 2 illegals playing basketball by shoredrywaII, 8/6/08What do you call 4 illegals in quicksand?
Notwithstanding the unfortunate conflation of hispanics with “illegals” (I suppose Trader and myself speak to the existence of hispanics for whom the description “illegal” would not apply), I am sort of concerned by the fact that the first post was met with a one-up, rather than some sort of show of disgust.
