At a time when national passions are heated about illegal aliens from Mexico, the city of Chicago and state of Illinois are promoting an event to honor Mexican independence.
The celebration, called the "2nd Annual Mexican Independence Skyline Tribute," will feature prominent buildings throughout the Windy City being bathed in Mexico's national colors of red, white and green for six days beginning next Tuesday, Sept. 12.
It's receiving heavy promotion from organizers including Lt. Gov. Pat Quinn, D-Ill., the Mexican Consulate and Univision radio host Javier Salas.
"The tribute recognizes the important role that Mexican-Americans have played in Chicago over the last century, from the early days of the railroad and stockyard industries through the steel mill boom to the present," a website promoting the tribute states. "Today, an estimated 550,000 Mexican-Americans live in the Chicago area."
At least 20 businesses and landmarks are slated to participate. Buildings including Sears Tower and the Wrigley Building will be illuminated with red and green lights, while other buildings and locations will spell out messages such as "VIVA VIVA."
The event began last year to mark the Sept. 16 Mexican national holiday.
Next week, on the anniversary of September 11, New York will sport white, black and green to honor Saudi Arabia.
Where's the G**dammed barf alert?!!! This is just sick!
Completely insane. What will the end be? The disappearence of all that is American, achieved by the same Americans who love to profit from hiring illegal help.
Does Illinois also celebrate Canadian Independence Day, or do our neighbors from the South get special preference? What's next, national holiday status? How about one for Mohammad's birthday as well?
ta he!! with'em.. lets just turn the entire city over to them.. i mean if NOLA was run so PERFECTLY by the libs.. the mexicans should do amazinly well!!
The end will be, just as with Rome, the barbarians flooding the country and destorying it.
thats pretty right on.. the question is.. how much longer until the fall?
Please say this is a joke. Please.
Not too much longer at the present rate.
At this rate, 20 years from now we will all be sporting red and yellow in honor of the Soviet Union and Communist China.
When was the last time they were bathed in RED WHITE AND BLUE to honor this country.
Shh, don't give 'em any ideas.......
Thanks! I needed that! lol
That's the first thing I thought.
It pisses me off to know that an American city will celebrate foreigners more than they would their own.
Bump with no comment.
