The ILLEGAL ALIEN HALLOWEEN COSTUME has been pulled from stores due to protests from political correctness. YET....I SAY YET....Alamogordo's own Flickinger Theater marquee is promoting a show entitled, 'EL GRINGO & A J MARTINEZ'. The illegal alien Halloween costume has been labeled racist and insensitive to Hspanics. Is the word GRINGO insensitive to Anglos?
In this era of zero-tolerance for anything that suggests parody, criticism, or opposition to political correctness, why not, I say WHY NOT....is this marquee not considered racist?
We know the answer.
If you think the words 'EL GRINGO' may be offensive to some residents of Alamogordo, contact the Flickinger and demand they remove the offending word from it's marquee and cancel the show 'EL GRINGO AND AJ MARTINEZ'. It would be the decent thing to do.
