Re ‘A TV Memory’

As readers reminded me, I was thinking of the “Chicano Militant Minute” — hilarious. These guys would break into “your regularly scheduled programming” to lecture you on all things Hispanic (and Latino and Chicano). For example, they would say that Hispanics were responsible for all great inventions and art, only to be denied credit by the “Anglos.” And, of course, Mary and Joseph’s child was Hispanic — why else would they have named him Jesús?

I’m not sure I have ever seen better parodying of what might be called ethnic political correctness, or extremist ethnic pride. Take four samples: here, here, here, and here. And thank you, all-knowing Corner readers!
