Tacos al pastor, is a dish developed in Central Mexico, shawarma spit-grilled meat brought by the Lebanese immigrants to Mexico. Being derived from shawarma, it is also similar to the Turkish döner kebab and the Greek gyro. Although shawarma and döner are usually lamb-based (thus the “shepherd-style” name), gyros and tacos al pastor in Mexico are pork based. In some places of northern Mexico, as in Baja California, this taco is called taco de adobada.

Lebanese immigration to Mexico started in the 19th and early 20th centuries see Lebanese Mexicans. In 1892, the first Lebanese arrived in Mexico from Beirut in French ships to Mexican ports. At that time, Lebanon was not an independent nation; the territory was governed by the Ottoman Empire for more than 400 years, but the empire was collapsing, which influenced the migration of many people. In the 1960s, Mexican born Lebanese migrants began opening their own restaurants, and morphing their heritage into Mexico.

Though grilling meat on a skewer has ancient roots in the Eastern Mediterranean with evidence from the Mycenaean Greek and Minoan periods,grilling a vertical spit of stacked meat slices and cutting it off as it cooks was developed in the 19th century in Ottoman Bursa current day Turkey. According to some sources, the Middle Eastern shawarma, Mexican tacos al pastor, and Greek gyros are all derived from the Turkish döner kebab, which was invented in Bursa in the 19th century by a cook named Hadji Iskender.

“There’s a knock on his door, it’s his homeboy.
Your mom’s gone? He pulls out a chrome toy.
Where’d you get that from? The kid asked.
We broke into a house we got a bunch of shit stashed.
It was the first time he ever held a real gun.
To get one of these you gotta steal one.
We too young, they won’t let us buy a gat.
Now if they shoot at us, we can fire back.
Who is they and why would they blast at me?
Cause you from the hood foo this is family.”

The problem with Bill Maher’s  argument that “liberals always come off as snooty and snobby” is...um, have you checked out the average Trump supporter lately? Or attended a rally? Talk about arrogance. They think *they* are everything that is totally amazing about the world and everyone else (Gays, Muslims, Latinos, Blacks, Feminists, Canadians, People who don’t watch Fox News 24/7, etc) are the problem.

Just saying: A poor redneck trucker named Bubba can be as elitist as anyone.

“Appropriation”

… isn’t real.

The kind of people we usually call Social Justice Warriors (though this has quickly become a self-invalidating platitude / meme) are the kind of people who want to make up problems that don’t exist, so they can pretend to fight them to look like heroes to the public and glorify their egos.

Rather than solve a social issue, SJWs want to prolong it, because they can’t benefit from campaigning against an issue that’s already been solved.

SJWs have two basic strategies to keep the show going:

  1. Did you depict a specific social group? APPROPRIATION
  2. Did you not depict a specific social group? ERASURE

No matter what you do, SJWs have an excuse to drag you under the bus for it. Either you’re a racist who makes minstrel caricatures of minorities, or you’re a racist who wants to pretend they don’t exist at all.

So what you need to do is the same thing Nintendo did: ignore all of that insincere bullshit, do what you want, and act in good faith. You are the only person who knows whether or not your depiction of something was made in good or bad faith, and if some lunatic wants to accuse you of bigotry, you’re the only one who knows whether they’re wrong.

Real Mexico loves Mexican Mario. They look at this and they see a major, globally-recognized icon smiling and having fun in their culture. How can that possibly be anything but an honor? What sick fuck can possibly get angry that someone else is enjoying their culture?

The fake “Latinx” culture can.

They want to stage a scene and exploit their ethnic identity for drama, and it is only these people - many of whom have never actually lived in a Hispanic nation or been fully immersed in Latin culture - who hate Mario & Nintendo because of this.

They hate it because they are themselves grossly xenophobic, latch onto their non-white persona solely to strongly assert themselves against the evil bad gringos, and they want to “own” their culture and refuse to share it with the whiteys (like Mario, as Italian is usually considered white.)

But you do not own your culture. You do not own any culture. All culture is a free resource to all of humanity.

Culture is defined by sharing & evolving traditions.

And if you are not willing to share your culture…

then you don’t love it very much.

I randomly bumped into a new Netflix show called Ingobernable and when I saw mexican actress Kate del Castillo was on it I just had to watch it. She’s fantastic, I loved her job on La Reina del Sur (another great show available on Netflix).
Now, back to Ingobernable, this show is SO GOOD. I mean it. The plot is really good and the acting is on point. There’s real mexican people, not only the white-washed ones. There’s LGBT people. There’s women kicking some ass.
Please, watch Ingobernable!!!!
