I really hope this goes to trial so we can see the whole cast of Thursday Night Gators up on the stand.

I can't stand onlookers. If something unjust is happening, do your best to rectify it. Had I witnessed such an encounter, I'd have joined the fray.

People can be such cowards.

How do you pick which people you're going to start punching? Or do you just always go with the underdog?
If it's four on one. I always at least attempt to make it a fair fight. Always have always will. Especially in a scene such as this.

What if the one guy was a suicide bomber and several young men were trying to apprehend him?
I'm not a moron. Actually quite observant. There are no absolutes.

I agree.  every time I see a barfight, I lick my lips and think to myself "this looks like a fracas I should involve myself in."

"Mexican" as a catch all term for brown people is maybe not the best.  For one thing, it isn't accurate, and for another it leaves the impression with your audience that distinctions between "other" groups of people are insignificant and unworthy of your care and attention. 

"Mexican" means "person from Mexico."  Like "Kansan" means "person from Kansas" or "American" means "person from somewhere in the Americas."  Googling "George Zimmerman" and seeing that his mother is Peruvian and not Mexican is a small chore that prevents this kind of carelessness.  It also prevents you from looking like a dumb bad person.

Just food for thought!

Peruvians I know have decided that since he is clearly more than 25% douchebag, it is clearly the white part that is the problem.

"American" means "person from somewhere in the Americas."

it usually means person from the united states of america.  the only time i've heard anyone use american to mean person from the americas is in discussions with butthurt latin americans who never use american to mean person from the americas except in butthurt discussions over the meaning of the word american.
we understand it better now that the american century is over and some of us sound more and more like serbs.

why is it so hard for americans to distinguish between nationality and race?  you're actually conflating the two in a discussion arising from how wacky was a dumbass to conflate the two.  good god.

I agree.  Words often have multiple meanings!:

in this case, the meaning you didn't choose is meant about 95% of the time.  among native english speakers it is meant about 99.9% of the time.

Come to think of it they do often leave out the option of Peruvian on most of those ethnicity questionnaires

Good gravy. I'm talking about out on the street. Not in a situation that will be resolved quickly. Smdh.
