TORRANCE, Calif. – Toyota Motor Corp., hoping to solidify its standing as the top brand for Hispanic buyers in the U.S., is offering drivers a series of stickers that celebrates their Hispanic heritage.

The decals contain the phrase "somos muchos," or "we are many," followed by cultures, regions and popular descriptors from all over Latin America, such as "somos muchos Mexicanos" and "somos muchos Hondurenos." The decals, designed to be stuck on bumpers or windows, come in more than 100 different versions and are available in the U.S. and Puerto Rico.

Perhaps they should give away free machetes.

In seriousness, race stuff like this is creepy.

Do they have one that says “somos muchos Americanos”?

Or is this the anything-but-American campaign?

Well, it was made in Mexico. They have standards.

One can be content with themselves and open about it unless you are male, white and Christian.

Wake up folks. It may not be in your neighborhood yet but there is a culture and race war going on in this country right now. Step away from the new-world multicultural crap and ask yourself; is the statement I made at the opening of this post true or not?

Photobucket I'd ask for "Scottish Pride" stickers but I don't buy new cars.

I’ll be in the market for a new car in 2011 and Toyota and Lexus won’t be on the list. Let the people they gave “Hispanic Pride” stickers to buy their cars.

Does it also come with a pound of weed in the engine compartment and a broken toilet??? They must have a glut of Scions to dump.

This is so ridiculous.

Can you imagine the outrage if Lexus was handing out these?

I am starting to think it is too late for America. Seems everyone from all over the world has taken us over.

And we let them, thinking that we can win at the polls. Hell, they have even rigged that.

What's pathetic is that we let the invaders in.

Toyota is just marketing to them.

The Hispanic market is huge and growing. Companies want to tap into that market. Hence, Budweiser, Coors and Miller produce marketing materials for Cinco de Mayo. State Farm has the same spokesperson for their English and Spanish language commercials. It's just business.

Meanwhile, my wife teaches ninth graders. When my son was deployed to Afghan my wife put his picture on her desk and told her students about his deployment. The white kids barely showed any concern about him. The hispanic kids were very concerned about his safety and asked how our family was doing. One hispanic boy even wants to be a Marine because of my son's example. Bottom line: you can't generalize about people.

I see alot of Whiskey Tango snaggle-toothed gringos driving rusted out Fords. Ford probably got them to buy their junk cars by stashing a bag of meth and a dead racoon in the trunk.

Can Japanese get Toyotas with Tora! Tora! Tora! stickers? How about a German sticker: Ein volk. Ein reich. Seig heil!

What a lot of people don’t realize is that the Hispanics are not being let in here to be “guest workers”; they are being allowed in to be consumers. Go to the malls and stores here in northern NJ, and they’re the only ones shopping (by that I mean actually buying things, not window shopping). They pay cash, and any business is happy to have them; they p!ss away money on Coronas instead of buying a cheaper US beer (I don’t think much of those “remittances” are getting back there anymore, at least not from our area). I guess if we didn’t have those stupid “income tax” and “health insurance” costs to deal with, we’d have a lot more discretionary income as well.

As far as the story with your son, I wouldn’t be surprised if many of them had family over there as well; they seem to be over-represented in the military (and not in a bad way).

Many of our nation's problems can be summarized as follows:

TOO MANY M&Ms!

That's Muslims and Mexicans...illegal and otherwise. I personally see no benefit whatsoever that America derives from either group living in our country.

I think the case against Muzzies is self-evident. So what's on the positive side of the balance sheet for Mexicans being here in the United States?

Silly. You could say the same thing about just about everyone including those of us who are eligible to be President. The state, especially this one, is supposed to exist for the benefit of the people, not the other way around JFK notwithstanding.

The problem with those you mention is the harm they cause and/or the danger they pose.
