Michael Bloomberg panders hard on Super Tuesday, “correcting” a reporter to pronounce Texas as “Tejas” because “you’re in a Cuban neighborhood.

Bloomberg was in Miami when he said that which shows that for him all Brown People look and sound the same: Wearing a big sombrero, a sarape and taking naps half the afternoon.
Dear Nasty Little Fascist, be advised that in South Florida when you say “tejas” we immediately go to the clay roofing tile which is part of our heritage going back to the Spanish colonizers.  You see a lot of historical houses in Coral Gables fully roofed with “tejas.”

Bloomberg trying to appear woke and sensitive to minorities, only managed to show he has no frigging idea of people who are not within his NY Rich and Famous circle.

  1. Oh… shame. Gun grabber Mike is not going to go all the way.

    Actually, this may be a bad thing for gun rights though. He can now dedicate the rest of his campaign funds to buying state legislatures.

  2. I’ll defer to someone who actually speaks the language, but it was my understanding that the letter “x” when appearing between two vowels (as in exactamente) is pronounced similarly to the English “x” sound but softer or less explosive. More of an “eccs” than an “ECKS” if you will.

    The practice of pronouncing the letter “x” with a “jh” sound (as in “Méjico”, “Oajaca” and “Tejas”) is a carry over from those place-names original Nahuatl pronunciation being rendered into Spanish by early explorers. Much like the American northern Midwest is filled with places like “Mackinac” or “Milwaukee” are transliterations of Ojibwe.

    Since the Cubans had essentially zero contact with any Nahuatl speakers, there is no reason for their language to have had any influence on Cuban Spanish. Colonial Cuba was also much more closely tied to Spain than colonial Mexico and remained so longer.

  3. I suppose Bloomberg got his Spanish knowledge from listening to the sort of fake hispanics who think that “latinx” is a word.

  4. Two things:

    1) Once again, we see a Liberal assuming all Hispanics are the same and that Mexican is synonymous with Latino.

    The absolute worst I ever saw was a tourist at a Cuban restaurant asking for “an authentic Cuban taco” because she loves “Latinx culture.” (No shit, that happened)

    2) This is more insidious than just his pandering racism. The use of “Tejas” for Texas is a trend among a pernicious group of Marxist youth of Mexican heritage who have been taught in their “Chicano studies” courses that Texas to California is stolen and occupied land that they deserve back. It’s word common within the Aztlan movement of Chicano-nationalists.

  5. Call me a mexican or latinx at yer peril. First time you get a fast open-handed slap directly to the nads… not enough to cripple but just enough to hurt a lot.

    Do it again and you’ll get a #13 butt so far up your ass that you’ll taste the leather, followed by a quick trip to the swamps of Floriduh.

    There won’t be a 3rd time.

    😉

  6. And this is the problem with Mini Mike in a nutshell, a campaign autopsy in a simple paragraph. A pandering, arrogant know-it-all who’s wrong.

  7. I believe I’ve told the story here in the past about the time I was called “racist” for telling someone that Antonio Banderas wasn’t a Latin-American actor.

    Y’know, the guy born in Andalusia, Spain, who holds Spanish citizenship and owns a home in Málaga and never set foot in Mexico until he was in his late thirties…

      1. “Latinx” types also get extremely upset with me for “whitesplaining” that the legendary hero of colonial California, El Zorro, isn’t actually some bit of charming chicano folklore from the 18th Century… But the coldly commercial creation of a Scottish-American pulp writer from 20th Century Illinois: Johnston McCulley.

        As a Scottish-American from Michigan, that means I should count Zorro as part of my cultural heritage, right?

    1. So, how would one identify the blonde haired, blue eyed, ethnically German, native Spanish speaking citizens od Argentina, who are grandchildren of ex-Nazis? Are they Hispanic? Latino? Are they a poor oppressed minority?

      This is the trouble with broad ethnographic identifiers.

      1. Depends. Are they running for office as Democrats? Are they paid-up-to-date woke leftist trying to get tenure at a big name university? Are they writing for Salon, the Atlantic, or the Huffpo?

        In the above cases, they absolutely have minority privilege.

      2. I’ve decided that, given all the archaeogenetic, anthropological, and archaeological evidence points to H. sapiens first emerging as a species in what is now eastern Africa, well, that means my ancestors were African… and I’m an American citizen. Ergo, I’m an African-American.
