The guy behind Mextasy and Chicanoholics Anonymous

A Chicano-themed chat with Bill Nericcio

By Kinsee Morlan

Our No. 1 pick of events this week is the Chicanoholics Anonymous soiree happening at Centro Cultural de la Raza on Thursday, Sept. 8.

Hit play and listen to author, SDSU professor and former CityBeat cover boy Bill Nericcio discuss the event and go a bit more into Chicana stereotypes, blatant racism and pop-culture depictions of Mexicans.

The one Mexican dude who makes an appearance in Iron Man 2 to deliver his one cliche line, for instance—that's a ridiculous characterization of Mexicans.

The pervasive image of a passed-out Mexican man in a sombreroyeah, that's racist, too.
