Racist Mexican Images Surface on Public Facebook Profiles of Baylor Students

We got the following from a Tumblr fan who shared it with us on our Facebook page, proving once again that posting your racism on public searchable Facebook pages is not recommended. You would think that people would know by now.

This set of images comes from the profile of a person who is listed as a student of Baylor University and who decided to make an image of her and her friends dressed up in sarapes, sombreros, mustaches, black shoe polish and "Green Card?" signs into her public Facebook banner. When the blogger who encountered the image questioned the student, the image was changed and the profile became private.

And while you are it, why not have fun scaling a border fence while your college friends whoop it up? As the student's Instagram says of this pic (page is now deleted): "Best entrance ever #lodge #mexicans #hoppinthafence viva mexicooooo!!"

Hey, we understand that kids want to have fun, but when your ugly racism becomes searchable and available on the Internet, you might run into some problems, and this was one of those cases. Kids will be kids, but who thought that this was a good idea and who thought that posting it on Facebook on a public banner would be an even better idea?

Next time, wear togas and call it a night.

"Divide and conquer" or "Divide y vencerás";  "The end doesn't justify the means" or "El fin justifica los medios", both from Maquiavelo is what our governments want. They get more control by keeping us separated, divided by ideas without any sense. Just a thought.

Mainstream recreational marijuana use began in the United States at the turn of the last century.   After the Mexican Revolution of 1910, Mexican immigrants flooded into the U.S., introducing to American culture the recreational use of marijuana as opposed to the typical industrial uses of the plant.  It was comical folks...no different than what a cartoonist would draw up if they had to represent this part of OUR AMERICAN history in that art form.

I'm a girl and I'm Hispanic and I think is funny. :) What happened to the freedom of speech? I see now why they are in trouble.

This goes beyond poor taste. I'm guessing this was a Halloween costume party. I know campuses have been trying to create a stronger sense of awareness on costume sensitivity. Racist and stereotype based costumes are very common.

They also painted some "dirt" on their faces.. didn't know Mexican costume kits also included this kind of makeup.
