Have we gone too far?

So, the shenanigans in AP Spanish just keep rolling and rolling, culminating today in a racial slur or two against The Maestra. So I ask, have we gone too far?
The day started by the Maestra referring to me as "El Guero," which, for you unseasoned spanish speakers, means "The White Kid." I laughed, nodded my head, swept kubas’s back with my escoba, and had a few "kind" words to say.
A few minutes after we made fun of white people, the Maestra asks me if I can dance – as if just because I’m a guero I can’t dance. I pump my fists a little in an honest attempt to cut a little rug, but she laughs and pulls up my sleeve comparing her brown arm to my whiteness. I just can’t win.
Not much later, we got on the subject of donating sangre. Mitch Lorenz talked about his blood donation, and the Maestra told us that, unfortunately, she didn’t weigh enough to give blood. And get this – Mitch tells her that no one would even want her Mexican "sangre sucio." That would be the Maestra’s dirty Mexican blood, folks. We actually have a legit racial slur of the dirty-Mexican variety uttered to a teacher figure that happens to have emigrated from Mexico. ¡Ay Caramba!
Not much else happened in the hour...no, wait. We had a "skit," which involved kubas as a professional football player, Tim Yeh as a prominent doctor, Cameron and Mitch as god knows what and yours truly as a janitor. And check this out – we end the skit by kubas yelling, "Maestra died!" Shortly after we danced and had a fiesta.
Methinks Borat should come to our Spanish class.


In lighter news, I’ve lost 100 dollars at the casino in two separate trips with Mr. Kubas in the last week. It’s safe to say I will never return.

Yikes. In French we never bashed French speakers. If it did happen, Aulie was the one spewing hate toward your fellow Muslims, Achmed.

mis amigos y ("son of water") just think it's ONLY DECEMBER! i cannot imagine what is yet to come.

in all honesty she should have expected that when she tells us to do a skit about high school. no one believes that AP spanish even exists now.

good point. with roughly six months to go, anything can happen. i won't be surprised if the Maestra leads an expedition to lynch los gueros.

First of all, I just want to defend my story BUNDY. I didnt say nobody wants your sangre sucio mexicana. What i said was you cant give blood anyway because you're a mexican... and then after she left, I said y tiene sangre sucio. that part wasnt to her cara. But she starts the slurs so really i was defending us americanos!
