    The ballot was clear, yet the city once again changed the meaning to “it was intend”. And the question asked is why don’t people vote. This another example of the city ignoring the people and doing whatever they want.

    In any case since disenfranchised Mexicans in a city of 85 % Mexican, oh brother! I wil change my clothes to sandals, white shirt and pants and a straw hat. I wouldn’t anyone accuse me of not being mexican enough or ant-mexican by not honoring our heritage. Had to put that in since yesterday I told that my comments revealed my anti-mexican comments, implying that I was white. Nope, I am as brown as they come. Hhhhmm, better check with the “brown skin” police, just get arrested for not being brown enough, ola le !

    Enough for now, adios amigos. Buenos noches . I have to get up early to let my mexican landscaper watch me as I do his work. Wouldn’t want anyone to think I am anti-mexican.

    Incredible, a city with a majority of the population being Mexican crying that they need reminders of their heritage because they are surrounded by racists. There is no doubt in my mind I live in a city full of race baiters. Change the city’s name to Sharptonville. Crank up the ay ay music lest you be accused of being ashame to be a Mexican. For good measure, let’s make the official language spanish. Wouldn’t want to forget my heritage. Walked into a store yesterday, they actually accepted pesos. Must be a way to remind me of my roots. Shut down and outlaw any eatery that doesn’t sell only tacos. Wouldn’t want to imply that the “other skin color” people had anything to do with El Paso.

      Very good points, and it is race baiting and theft by the city to deceive a population to support using “bonds”, as opposed to real money, to fund a center focused on ethnic bias. I want to refuse my taxes to pay for anything the city does, except for roads, bridges and law enforcement…period. This other stuff is just theft from those who don’t want it.

    Peppers will wear a baja, straw hat, sandals and drive a 1979 pickup truck full of lawn tools to stand in solidarity with my oppressed neighbors.

    Morenito me thinks you might be needing some help there with the brown skin and the spelling. Let’s start with ola le???? did you intend it to be orale? Did you also mean to imply that you are not Mexican-American enough and that the community is 82% Spanish surnamed or literally 82% Mexican? if the latter then we’re in the wrong country. After all, the hyphen, created sometime in the past by who knows who, is meant as a reminder of heritage rather than that of nation. So while I’m either (pick one or more) Hispanic (yuk), Mexican-American, American of Mexican descent, Chicano or just plain old AMERICAN (since I was born inside the borders of the U.S. even though others would argue all North and South Americans are Americans) the fact is that this bitter divisive suggestion of trying to find ourselves is just that, divisive. I think that Sunday’s columnist Ramon Renteria made a good point: until we ourselves aren’t prejudiced against ourselves the issue will continue to make us all look less of whatever you call ourselves. I wish there was this much discussion on taxes and the cost of government. Then maybe we could afford these wonderful new palaces created by less than 7 % of the registered voters. Just my opinion.

    I’m going to have to agree with Morenito.

    While you are fighting over the cultural center the new major gonzales has sneaked in help with a high salary. Who authorized it?
