When are we, as a country, going to get to the point where jokes are just jokes. George Carlin is rolling over in his grave right now.

What if he said he was out eating watermelon about a black man, or out delivering chow mein cuz he was chinese. This is about racism not jokes.

Bob - it's 2009 babe! I don't follow NASCAR much but when I heard you make the comment during the game, I thought to myself: I hope Juan's sponsor is "Taco Bell" or you're in it deep!....

I don't think that montoya is so thin skinned that the comment is going to bother him. The world is way to politically correct for my taste.

Tacos are from Mexico, not from Colombia. Please stop thinking that Latin Americans are all the same because we all speak the same language. It is like thinking that Americans, Britons and Australians are the same because they all speak English. Juan was probably out having a good Colombian coffee.
