Mexican media versus American media

Though I’ve written about this before, my convictions were confirmed during my stay in Mexico:  The Mexican media is extremely Eurocentric.  Generally speaking, brown people are shown on Mexican T.V. only when the program is specifically about them, if they’re showing a documentary about indigenous peoples for example.  Little Mayan girls play with their “Little Momma” dolls – which are blond-haired and blue-eyed.  Billboards depict white people using the products they are trying to sell.  Even murals on schools often show white children.  The contrast between the white world of Mexican media, and the brown world of reality, is striking.

Equally striking is the difference between native Mexican programming and the Spanish-dubbed American programs.  The latter are just as obviously Afrocentric as the former are Eurocentric.  Even during the few minutes I watched T.V. while waiting for a bus, I saw several grotesque examples of anti-white/pro-black bias in an American program.  Regular watchers of T.V. usually become so inured to this anti-white bias that they typically don’t even notice it anymore.  For me, however, it’s obvious, blatant – and insulting.

This toxic mix of television programming propaganda can only warp the attitudes of the Mexican public.   Some native Mexicans might develop a disdain for their own race while believing that “El Norte” is composed of about 50% evil, stupid, white people and 50% wise, virtuous, black people.  Others might conclude that whites in Mexico are persecuting the brown natives, while whites in the U.S. are persecuting the black former slaves.  In both cases, they would hold whites to be contemptible people.

The poison vomited out by their televisions, into their homes, might be mitigated somewhat by regular doses of reality from their relatives in the U.S., who report what things are really like.  Unfortunately, I do not believe this is enough; for most people, a fictional television program is just as real as what they see on the streets.

People are gullible, Mexicans at least as much as others.  Look how they bought into Christianity.  It was the religion of those who conquered them, enslaved them, persecuted them and marginalized them.  It features a man sporting long blond hair.  Yet, from what I saw, it is the indigenous Mexicans who are the most devout Christians.  It’s a good thing the Arabs didn’t conquer Mexico.

It could be said that the two most popular creeds in Mexico are that of the white Jesus (and his virgin mother) and the brown Coca-Cola.  Both are heavily marketed – and both are accepted, by Mexicans, as gospel.  Jesus made them docile and Coca-Cola made them fat.  How convenient.

In my travels within Mexico, almost all the people around me were Mexicans.  I had no problem with this; after all, it’s Mexico.  It was disconcerting to me, however, that my flight from Houston to Portland was also about half Mexican.  Will we need to subjugate them, and convert them, again to make them more manageable?  If so, I’d rather they are sold Jesus with Coca-Cola and not some other, more violent, alternative.

    Well, give it time.

    The article quoted at Amren about self-identification of Mexican kiddies with the white doll, not with the black one, might explain this “TV-Eurocentrism”.
    I visited central Mexico 15 years ago and my impression was that the people there somehow managed to merge their Spanish and Aztec heritage.

    Do teh Jooz run the Mexican media as well? Just kidding, JAY, glad you’re back. As for gullibility and buying into the religion of the people oppressing you, wouldn’t more Spaniards have become Muslims if that were the case? Wouldn’t more Irish have become Protestant? Considering that people in the new world, as well as others like sub-Saharan Africans and Pinos bought into the religion of the people treating them so poorly, makes me think it might have more to do with average intelligence.

      Let’s not forget that the Europeans also had Christianity forced upon them, or imposed upon them, by outside forces. It was not always voluntary.

      • Me Ne Frego says:

        JAY, I understand that, but the people I used as examples came under the thumb of Christians in the late 15th and early 16th Centuries, as opposed to the Spaniards and Irish who dealt with it by the 9th Century or so.

    They quickly learn the truth once they get to the US.

    • Insightful says:

      Mexico has black people, and by ‘black’ I mean ‘black-looking’ people. They are a small minority but they are there and have been for hundreds of years, believe me. So they don’t have to learn the truth by moving to the US

    Mexican Coca-Cola has real sugar in it and a tad more carbonation. I can get it in my local Krogers in north-central rural Ohio. It’s quite different than Classic Coca-Cola bottled in the US.

  6. Bay Area Guy says:

    I had no problem with this; after all, it’s Mexico.

    Absolutely. I likewise don’t mind Africans in Africa, Arabs in various parts of the Middle East, etc.

    I just don’t want them in white countries.

      European countries have the right to define itself as a white country; The US, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand do not. However we should try to attract higher caliber immigrants and force them to abandon citizenship in their former countries, sever political and economic ties with their motherland, and force them to interact with different ethnic groups; I would say the high concentration of Mexicans and Central Americans (or that of any other group, in any given location) in the Southwest is a threat, even if I don’t have a problem with them We should also no longer encourage them to celebrate their origins.

    I noticed the same thing. I was the only gringo on the streets. But the people on tv looked whiter than me.

    Bingo. That’s why I don’t watch TV. If you want to see what Roddy Piper saw in “They Live” then you don’t need special glasses. All you need is to turn that idiot box off for a while. If you’ve never seen “They Live” you should. It’s a classic and its free on Youtube.

    I don’t know that Mexicans are any more gullible than Americans. At least most Mexicans are still very pro Mexican. Nor do I think the Spanish themselves were any harder on the natives than the previous “management” had been. They simply replaced the native leaders with themselves and continued the existing feudal system. Still, it’s not so much that the natives “bought into it” as they simply inherited it. After all, 700,000 Spanish men immigrated to Mexico but no women. They just married local women and raised their children Catholic.

    • jewamongyou says:

      We would expect the offspring of Spanish men and native women to be Catholic. I’m talking about the more or less pure indigenous people. The ones who still speak their own languages and identify with their tribes.

    • jewamongyou says:

      Re: “They Live”. Even the movies that have worthy messages are infused with propaganda. “They Live” has worthy messages, but it still has the ubiquitous wise black man teaching the clueless white man.

      • destructure says:

        Regarding indigenous conversions. I expect it had something to do with economics in the sense that native religions were probably in cahoots with local dictators. When the local dictators were replaced and native religions lost their funding, clergy, etc there was really nothing to keep them going.

        Regarding “They Live”. Yeah, that’s a good point. I thought the same thing about the Matrix ie Morpheus, Oracle, etc. I always thought the Matrix had potential. Too bad it was hijacked by the multicult.

    Do you have any idea of what the Aztec religion did to many Amerindians, children included, before the conquest? They were longing for new gods (Virgin of Guadalupe, etc), a less barbarous myth!

    • jewamongyou says:

      Of course, but I was mainly referring to the people of the area I visited, who are Mayan. The Mayans, though not innocent, were not nearly as bad as the Aztecs. Also, I think it would be safe to say that most indigenous Mexicans followed various local tribal religions. We know about the mass sacrifices because of the monuments and records. Other religions left very little trace.

      Yours is a good point though. Thanks for bringing it up.

      • Chechar says:

        Jewamongyou, I liked your recent interview with Robert Stark at VOR.

        The Mayans, though not innocent, were not nearly as bad as the Aztecs.

        They were… worse! Cited in my linked article above:

        On December 2005 Reforma published an article about archeologist Ricardo Armijo Torres’s finding in Comalcalco, a Chontalpa region that some believe was the cradle of the Maya civilization, where the Mayans had perpetrated “a massive sacrifice of children of approximately one or two years old.”

        Chichén-itzá was named one of the new Seven Wonders of the World in 2007, with both the proud nationals and the foreign fans ignoring the fact that it had been the location of a ritual carnage. The Chac Mool at the top of the temple has a stone vessel used to hold the hearts of sacrificed humans. Thousands of Mayans died in ritual sacrifices in times of great droughts: a pointless holocaust that could not save Chichén-itzá from its fate. In the Maya ball game participants sometimes played with a decapitated head. The local legends recount that maids were thrown over into the cenote. This was confirmed recently by dredging one of them and discovering the skeletons. In addition to the physical evidence there exists pictorial evidence in Mayan art about the sacrificed children.

        It was also performed in the first years of the Spanish colonization, albeit clandestinely and under the protective shadow of the caves. Mayan scholar Michael Coe: “Now it is surprisingly clear that the Mayans of the Classic times, and their Pre-classic ancestors, were governed by an hereditary dynasty of warriors, for whom self-sacrifice and the spilling of blood, and the sacrifice by human beheading were supreme obsessions.”

        Diego de Landa recounts that they went as far as torturing the captive kings by gouging their eyes out, chopping off their ears and noses and eating up their fingers. They maintained the poor captive alive for years before killing him, and the classic The Blood of the Kings tells us that the Mayans tore the jaw out from some prisoners still alive.

        Not even Mel Gibson dared to film these atrocities, although he mentioned them during an interview when defending his film before the criticism of politically-correct reporters and academics.

    Re: Chechar, Maybe I’ve fallen for pro-Mayan propaganda. They do not deny that there was human sacrifice in Chichen Itza, but they claim this was because they were not “pure Mayan” but mixed with Toltecs – which is, indeed, suggested by the mixed architectural styles there.

    • Chechar says:

      Re Maya sites: A tourist guide lied about a year ago to my father when the guide talked of human sacrifices (the same happens with tourist guides overseas in Tunisia, who deny the sacrifice of children in ancient Carthage). Never trust PC guides.
