People Are Pissed At This Dallas Small Business For Insulting Eloteros

An elote stand business in Dallas, Texas, had to delete all their social media accounts after posting something to Instagram they wish they could take back.

In its now deleted post (but not really because the Internet is forever), Corn Connection, which is owned by an anonymous white dude named Miles, ragged on “roachin’ ass cart[s] in front of Home Depot.” So basically, he was talking smack on the very thing he ripped off.

The post was first publicized by Facebook page Xicanisma, who put them on blast.

Corn Connection is a "business" owned by racist gentrifying hipsters in Dallas that try to immaculate elote (we all know…

The blowback was enough that Corn Connection deleted all their accounts, but not before the owner also issued a half-assed apology on Facebook:

A comment was made in bad taste and apparently was taken out of context. It was truly said in jest and without any negative intention. It was a thoughtless comment that caused unintended harm. We understand how and why it was viewed as offensive, that being said we sincerely apologize to each and every person that took offense, as it was and is never our intention to upset anyone or hurt anyone’s feelings. That is not who we are and that is not our style. We are just a small business and we wouldn’t even exist if it weren’t for the inspiration from all of the food carts that we have frequented for years and continue to buy from and support. We want to support all small business and food vendors alike.

The Dallas Observer spoke to the dude behind the cart, who told them that he didn’t personally do it, that it was a Mexican employee who posted it, which means that it wasn’t racist because it was Mexican-on-Mexican smack talk.

If you’re a white person who’s trying to open a small business off of someone else’s culture, here’s some advice: Never social media. Seriously, don’t do it.

I’m not gonna tell you to not stop appropriating our culture, because you’re gonna do it anyway and no one can stop you. But, if you choose to do that, consider the fact that Latinos are on the internet en masse, my guy, and you better believe we’re gonna find your f**k-ups, and we’re gonna call you out and drag your ass through the mud. So just don’t do it.

Racist Old Man Demands To See Construction Workers’ Papers

Esto nos paso el dia de Ayer mientras haciamos nuestra labor Del dia un señor ya de edad avansada se molesto por el ruido Del camion pero en ningun momento nos hablo tranquilo si no que nos empeso a ofender con palabras racistas
Lo estaran pasando hoy a las 6:00 pm por Telemundo

Last week, Jorge Tally was minding his business working his construction job in Henderson, Nev., when all of a sudden, an angry old white man came out of his house and started saying wildly racists things. Tally recorded the exchange and uploaded it to Facebook.

“This happened to us yesterday while we were doing our daily work,” Tally wrote in Spanish on his Facebook page. “A man of advanced age was annoyed by the truck’s sound, but at no point did he try to calmly talk to us, but instead chose to offend us with his racist words.”

“Let me see your proof of citizenship!” the man said in the video. “I hope Trump wins and deports every one of those illegals.”

But, hey, go ahead and tell me that Trump isn’t fanning racial sentiment.

The silver lining? That dude’s old, which means that his bigotry is gonna die off with him when he croaks it. Oh also, sorry, my guy, but all your spite isn’t going to change 1) the browning of America, and 2) the fact that old white people are dying at a very rapid rate.

My advice?

Oh, and not that it matters, but Tally is a legal permanent resident, you f***ing racist.
