The Nashville Scene's 2006 "You Are So Nashville If..." issue hit newsstands last week, and the annual exercise in comically expressed local sentiment attracted at least four publishable comments relating to Hispanics:
Your carwash talks to you in Spanish. —Steve Dobbrastine
You think illegal Mexicans are just as bad as homosexuals, Islamic terrorists and Pac Man Jones. —Mike Williams
You don’t mind the immigrants, but wish you could deport Tim Chavez. —Ilissa Gold
You need a translator to read you the Ask a Mexican column. —Michele Totty
Apparently, the contest either attracted fewer overtly xenophobic entries than last year (story here), or the editors simply chose not to mention them.
