I have a friend here in the High Desert, who is a retired mathematician and scientist. He is unusually cranky and combative. When I tell him he should loosen up, he answers that's the right of an elderly person to be disagreeable.
I feel that I have been unusually blessed in my fifty-five years of living among Mexicans. I never did learn how to be politically correct. Without police control of my mind, I have been able to see and contend with both the good and bad sides of my nature. Not everyone has that freedom in "politically correct" America.
Here's an example: My wife and I have just returned from several days at the Mexican border. We had the opportunity to listen to some of the campaign strategies for Cruz Bustamente in Spanish. One person said on TV: "Elect Cruz Bustamente because he serves the Latino." Can you imagine what would have happened to an Anglo-American candidate for office if his supporters stood up and said, "Elect So-and-So because he serves the White Man?"
What I am about to say may surprise you, but Cruz Bustamente has a greater opportunity to get in tune with his spiritual nature than Anglo-Americans. We've all got to be honest with ourselves and be in tune with ourselves, even with our prejudices - as long as they are held in check and don't harm anyone physically.
