La Cucaracha Exed by LA Times

by Pachuco Tuesday, Mar. 06, 2007 at 12:38 PM

La Cucuracha comic strip by Lalo Alcaraz has been cancelled by the Los Angeles Times!

The Art of Exclusion

La Cucuracha by Lalo Alcaraz comic strip has been cancelled by the Los Angeles Times!

This is another event in a long list of measurers to exclude Latinos from the mainstream media and, in fact, exclude Latinos from history itself - we don’t exist in the eyes of many.

Spanish language TV and Radio News programs have been cancelled nationwide.

PBS aired a 14 hour show on World War II and completely omitted the military contributions that thousands of Latinos made during that war.

PBS aired a show on music of the Civil Rights Movement and completely omitted the musical contributions that Latinos made during that movement.

Latinos funded 80% of the American Revolution, supplied George Washington with food, weapons and clothing (the Colonists uniforms were hecho en Mexico and Aztlan). Latinos served as troops in the American Revolution. The city of Galveston was named after Galvez, one of the generals of the American Revolution and in my book a founding father of this US country - but you won't find that in any history books - the art of exclusion.

Please take action and write the Los Angeles Times demanding that La Cucaracha comic strip be reinstated!

Please send emails to: readers.rep@ latimes.com and cc laloalcaraz@ yahoo.com

Or call the Times at (877) 554-4000

Gracias!

Great opportunity

by Willis Wednesday, Mar. 07, 2007 at 6:51 AM

Maybe he can get on at "La Opinion" or "Rumores." I hear they speak Espanish there.

See you in the Funny Papers

by Pachuco Wednesday, Mar. 07, 2007 at 10:23 PM

Thanks for your email about "La Cucaracha." I'm happy to tell you that because of notes like yours, we're bringing the comic strip back starting Wednesday in the daily Calendar section, and on March 25 on Sundays.

As you know, it was one of several comics we had recently dropped as part of a shift in our Sunday feature lineup, but when we heard from readers like you, we realized that the strip had such a large and loyal following that it should continue to appear on our pages.

Once again, thank you so much for telling us what you think. We're glad you care enough about The Times to take the time to write.

Sincerely,

Sherry Stern

Racist Go Home

by Sam Zislman Friday, Mar. 09, 2007 at 1:12 AM

Actually ... I suppose home for Mr. Alcaraz is Los Angeles. Regardless, his politically correct racism has been long overdue for being shown the door. Decades from now, "La Cucaracha" will be a tiny footnote in an odd period in American history when it was acceptable for members of largely unsuccessful ethnic groups to espouse public bigotry that would otherwise be deemed grossly unacceptable. Adios, Lalo.

"Latinos" ?????

by History Friday, Mar. 09, 2007 at 1:29 AM

Who are "latinos"?, if i'm not mistaken aren't they the people from southern Europe. Why is "Latino" and Hecho en Mexico in the same sentence. If i'm not mistaken, "Latinos" are the whites that live and oppress Mexico and Central "America". Don't "Latino" rob the identity of a Mexicans, Guatemalans, Salvadorions, Nicaraguans, Hondurans, by calling him a "Hispanic". "Latinos" aren't they those cool people who like reggeton, not who know their true History , right. WAKE UP, IF YOU ARE OF MEXICAN OR "CENTRAL AMERICAN DESCENT, YOUR AN "INDIAN" (INDIGENOUS) be proud of your identity and stop selling your self out.
