Here are some Cultural Facts...and some pc spin...

And then there was one, The Original Sambo's Restaurant.

The Original Sambo’s Restaurant is still family owned and operated by Chad Stevens,
the grandson of the Founder of Sambo's Restaurant, along with his wife Michelle. They invite you to stop in and say hello.

Over the years many myths and rumors abound about the "SAMBO'S" name -
its origin seemingly subject to many ideas as to how the restaurant got its name.

The fact is - SAM (the Founder) was a real person and BO (his partner) was a real person.

Sam is Sam Battistone and Bo is Newell Bohnett, known affectionately to his friends, family and associates as "Bo".
Despite all the other stories you may have heard - this is really how SAMBO'S got its name.
'The Story of Little Black Sambo' by Helen Bannerman was an afterthought. The SAMBO'S RESTAURANT
already was established before the children's story was discovered and used as part of a marketing promotion.

Sam actually had another restaurant on State St. in Santa Barbara called "Sammy's" when the original (and present)
property location (216 W. Cabrillo Blvd) became available.

From 1957 until around 1978, Sambo's was a growing part of the American landscape. For a number of reasons Sambo's
began to slow down and its transition from an innovative coffee cafe in Santa Barbara to a multi-million dollar corporation
began to take its toll - In August 1981 there were 1,117 restaurants in 47 states.

Some restaurants in the Northeastern part of the U.S. tried a new name - ' No Place Like Sam's ' in an attempt to reverse
a four-year tailspin. Sadly, in 1982 all but the original Sambo's in Santa Barbara closed their doors.

In 2012 The ORIGINAL Sambo's Restaurant will celebrate 55 years in business, on the beach !!

Norton, I have some white friends too. They are good people. My white neighbors are out playing baskeetball with their kids... whooping and hollerin' like lunatics. I don't talk to them cuz they have a half-pipe and we ALL KNOW about sk8er culture.

**Kinda like when all them dirty wops piled into New York. Or the polacks and krauts dirtying up Chicago. Yup, those disgusting subhumans sure did wreck every place they invaded, didn't they?

They brought their criminal gangs with them, and filled the headlines with murders. And not only that, they smelled bad, ate weird food, crowded into rundown tenements...**

Yes, but all of that is nothing compared to the destruction that white protestants have visited on our society.

Tuba thefts are up.

"...the thefts are motivated by the growing popularity of banda, a traditional Mexican music form in which tubas play a dominant role."

I remember when Country Music became real popular. Nobody noted an abundance of banjos being ripped off then.

Demographic differences at work.

Hahaha... sk8ers are a subculture in the US, but gang bangers and drug dealers define third world culture. And you wonder why people call you a racist?

No TGT, they will say your Black in-laws have been brainwashed and must not know who you really are. Because some minorities must be brainwashed if they don't understand that they are a victim of a white society.

it does not give Ron any comfort that because the Poles and Irish stank up the place in 1880, other groups have every right to do it NOW

Nope. And I wasn't implying that it should, or at least not in the short term. Just trying to point out that this is not a new problem. It's the same old problem but its hitting Ron in Carson City now, instead of your grandfather in Chicago in 1930.

You stand corrected...

There are many "white trash" places here in Nevada as well and yes - that is also a cultural problem. Culture being predominantly METH.

The third world countries are labeled that due to their CULTURES. Primarily considered behind the times, with lawlessness as a norm, and societal practices that are deemed un acceptable in most any other countries.

So you can expect that those cultures will come with the people.

When we invite throngs from third world countries, many of those habits come with them. The degradation of many a neighborhood has been the result. They begin to take on the look and feel of those third world areas from whence they came. And being illegals and un documented people, they tend to flock amongst those of the like nature. And then comes "ghettos" and slums if you will for a lack of a better wording while property values fall..

Yep, in the 19th century the whole friggin' city of New York was blighted with an Irish Catholic ghetto just like the one you describe above. That's why the Irish hate African Americans so much: they fought it out with them at the bottom in Boston and New York in the 19th century for the underclass jobs. The animosity has never gone away. Remember William Bonny (aka 'Billy the Kid')? He left Hell's Kitchen in New York, the largest Irish ghetto in the US, and moved out to Tombstone in New Mexico Territory. "Killed 21 (white) men for his 21 years, not counting N_ggas, Indians and Mexicans".

My point? It's been that way in the USA a long, long time. After maybe three generations, when they finally get into the middle classes and the professions, then THEY become WHITE like everyone else. A toughening process to be sure. Why did the Italians start the Mafia? Because everyone discriminated against them so they created their own protection organization.

But doesn't CVS today seem like it's a store in northern Mexico? Something about the service level and the variety of product choices. Makes you think the new global economy is spelled: POVERTY.

It is only spelled POVERTY for 47% of Uhmerikuhns and 99% of the global population. For the rest it is spelled GOVERNMENT SUBSIDIZED FREE MARKET CAPITALISM.

Culture? I think that it's all about income. Poor people have sh#t lives and do sh#t stuff. Have three jobs? Then no time to worry about where you throw your trash or how many fish you have.

People bring their income with them but when people start to make less, they too move to cheaper places. Where? The crap part of town of course.

Since it has all to do with income and nothing to do with native culture, I would say that you are income-ist.

But really, you have to be prejudice to be an -ist. Racist, sexist, culture-ist, whatever. You need to learn of a persons race, sex, culture, etc., and then make a judgement about them without knowing any other information. Are you that? Do you hate them because of where they came from regardless of how they act or do you see how they act and then hate them for that?

R A, do you really think climbing is a culture?

"That's why the Irish hate African Americans so much"-----wow, can you back that one up? If not then back off!

"Why did the Italians start the Mafia? Because everyone discriminated against them so they created their own protection organization."-------get a clue, read a little.

You are a first rate moron if you don't realize people manipulate your own white guilt.

Xenophobia is a HUMAN trait. It doesn't belong to anyone, it belongs to all of us. We will never over come it. As we try to overcome it, here come the ass f*#ks that will manipulate, lie, cheat, and steal. These are HUMAN traits. Black white brown red we are all xenophobic, we are all lazy, evil, good, loving, hating, jealous ect ect ect

Change might be good. What race in the history of the world has f*#ked up the planet more, and killed more people than whitey?
