Being as I am a self-appointed explicator of thing s Latin to Americans curious about what lies to the south, and has come north, I occasionally and in a scattershot and prejudiced manner try to offer a picture of life below the border. There is more to the place than narcos and MS-13. If I lived in Thailand instead of Mexico, I wouldn’t. But Latin America matters to America today as Thailand does not. So here goes.

Trigger Waning: Republicans and Nordic populations may find this column unsettling. It contains disturbing color and some of the images show signs of having escaped from an acid trip. Proceed at your own risk.

Recently Vi and I were in Tuxtla Gutierrez, Chiapas in southern Mexico and, wandering about in a sort of Brownian motion, found ourselves walking along a canal. We discovered a region frequented by grafiteros, street artists.These view unwatched walls as canvases, legal, semi-legal or just not policed. Using spray paint, they, well, paint. I suspect that the authorities fail to get into an uproar because the results leave the precincts more attractive than would bare walls. Vandalism it isn’t.

Anyway, I decided to shoot a few of them–that is, photograph the walls, not assassinate the grafiteros–and then, ideas exploding on me, to post some of them, along with links to such things Mexican and Latin-American as struck my fancy. It will not be well organized. It will, I hope, make the point that the southlands are not, musically, artistically, or culturally, as they are thought to be by many in the United States.


Spray-painted on someone’s back wall in Chiapas. Obviously the owner of the wall is not greatly upset since (a) the painting is still there and (b) it is difficult, though not impossible, to do something so elaborate without being noticed.

In Ajijic, where I live, on a wall along the malecón, a sort of cement boardwalk by the lake.

If you want to nuke Iran, this probably won’t appeal to you. Well, unless maybe you thought of it as Iran after being nuked. I liked it. But then, I don’t want to nuke Iran.


Chiapas again. This would appear to be a kid with a rabbit, next to a purple river. Or something purple anyway. Many of these are painted by youngsters, sometimes teenagers.

Yours truly with, perhaps, the artist’s girlfriend. Slightly out of focus, but we will have to live with it. Others may disagree, but I think doing this freehand with spray paint is pretty cool.


Proof positive that Mexicans are crazy. They are also not too afraid of color, perhaps because they were never exposed to the leaden skies of Northern Europe that seem to have draped everything in earth tones.

Musically Mexico and Latin America are richly varied. Genres run from classical to Spansh rap, not as foul as American ghetto gunch but with the same rhythms. Not all Mexican music is awful banda blaring from tit bars full of drunken Marines in Tijuana. Here are a couple of things I like. They deserve better speakers than a laptop is likely to have.

Huapango, by José Pablo Moncayo. Orquesta Sinfónica Nacional, Mexico City, conducted by Alondra de la Parra.

Dnzón No. 2, by Arturo Marquez, with the Philharmonic Orchestra of the Americas also under the baton of de la Parra, who gets around. She is the only conductor I have seen who actually seems happy while at it.


I’m not sure exactly what this is, but apparently it lives in trees.

Also in Ajijic, behind Farmácia Guadalajara. Paralleling Munch’s The Scream, it might well be entitled The Hangover.

This appears to be a womn contemplating the suckers on the arm of a very large octopus. It probably isn’t, though. Octopodes are rare in the mountains hereabouts.

The Camaleón, a bar in Ajijic, attracting a mixed crowd of Mexicans and gringos, running to oddballs. Are you surprised?

Los Fabulosos Cadillacs, El Matador. Actually Argentine, but I liked it so here it is anyway. Definitely not for the average banker: See trigger warning above. “Matador” north of the Rio Bravo means, reasonably enough, “bullfighter,” but the word literally means “killer,” and the song is a protest against the murder of a journalist. It is characterized by the soughing and low energy usual in Latin music.

That wraps up today’s dose of Penetrating Cultural Insight. I hope that at least will enjoy it, and feel Insighted.

  1. I’ll also have to wait for real speakers to try out your music pick. There’s absolutely no bass coming through on this computer. However, as discussed on the Peak Stupidity blog, pretty much besides Nina and her 99 luft balloons, 99 % of good rock and pop was created in the English-speaking world. Mexico and, in fact, all of Latin American combined, could not make more decent rock music than the unknown musicians of ONE medium-sized American city.

    As far as graffiti goes, that’s decent art, but it’s on a wall. Over here, you will see it on freight trains – all over the hopper, gondola, and box cars. That is a true eyesore. If your selection is a true sample, then you’ve got us beat to hell on graffiti. Keep in mind that the MS-13 gangs are from your countries (along with the black guys that have done it for 50 years) . Can’t they stay down there and do art there, Fred? Are y’all running out of walls? We can rent you folks the rights to one side of a 1900-odd mile wall.

    Lastly, I think all those conductors, excuse me, Maestroes, could be easily replaced by 5 ft tall, cherry-wood-laminate, NiCad-powered, pneumatic robotic metronomes. Doing the jobs even Mexicans won’t do don’t need to be doing.

  2. It’s pretty clear: Fred Reed loves white Mehico. The elite Mexico we see in all their leaders, journalists like blue-eyed Jorge Ramos and Salma Hayek. He’s basically a white nationalist — for Mexico. Naturally, like all Democrats he projects his vile impulses onto others.

  3. > Fred Reed loves white Mehico.

    That’s the thing. I actually have more respect for the illiterate indios the more I read about the technologies they developed and in many areas still use. They are arguably the best horticulturalists the world has ever known. Doesn’t mean I want to live anywhere near them. Good fences make good neighbors.

  4. Anonymous [AKA "wagondog"] says:

    Mexicn spray paint artists are amazingly talented. I have seen their work in TJ and also on a street in Miami. I watched the artist take a blank piece of paperboard and turn into a Dali-esque space scene in about 5 minutes. No need to look down on people. Since I have seen that type of art performed in more than one area by different people, all from Mexico, and have never seen an American do it, I surmise they probably have a significant innate ability. Whatever the case, I enjoy it.

    They spotted cocodrilos in Lake Chapala, so octopodes may not be as rare as you think, I’ll be spending the week in Ajijic and I’ll definitely be on the lookout for both.

    And, it’s really a fucked up place. The Soviet Union really did impoverish everybody it didn’t execute, except for the party faithful.

    Something really terrible is going on in Mexico. Over 100,000 civilians have been murdered by either the government or the cartels, if there is any difference between the two. A third of the population has been driven to the U.S. by poverty.

    I don’t have any doubt that Mexico produces great music, art and literature.

  15. TheJester says:

    Fred, going forward, does this mean that you are asking us (the “gringos” with Northern European heritage) to accept psychedelic graffiti on our walls as the price for racial and cultural peace with our new Hispanic neighbors?

    I’m not sold, though. South of the border, Mexicans can do as they please. However, if I see any of this stuff in my community in Northern Virginia, I’m calling the police. Here, things like that are considered a criminal offense. There are consequences.

    Haven’t you heard about the “broken window” theory of urban decay? People see the kind of art you celebrate on walls and start bailing out of the community. It’s downhill from there. That’s why it is standard practice in our community to send out teams to immediately remove graffiti whenever and wherever it appears to keep the community appealing and presentable.

    I know … more uptight “gringos”. But, there is more. We have very strong community associations. They dictate the color of your house and the color of your shingles. If you deviate, you have to get permission from the association and your neighbors. The associations also have the power to force you to mow your lawn, clean up trash, and remove mold from your driveway.

    Yes, my son thinks we live in a “fascist” community. Fred, I’m sure you would agree … because not any of the art you showcased us would be allowed in our community or in any of the surrounding communities. “Fascist” communities? A strange thought. People are willing to pay a hefty premium to live here.

    Ironically, many of the Hispanic refugees from Mexico who live here agree that it’s a premium place to live. They consider this a “garden” paradise. They’ve told me you cannot find anything like this in Mexico. As a bonus, even the streets and paths through the greenways are safe.

  16. @TheJester

    The “graffiti” in Reed’s photos was obviously made with the consent of the property owners, obviously has some artistic merit, and is an improvement on bland concrete anyway.

    Outrage is better saved for e.g. Brussels, where the graffiti is either officially sanctioned Communist propaganda, or constitues vandalism of historical sites.

  17. TheJester says:


    I’m not outraged. It’s just that the art referenced by Fred in Mexico or you in Eastern Europe are not allowed in the urban communities of Northern Virginia … even with the consent of property owners. Try it without permission and, if your identity is known, you will be arrested. Try it with the permission of a property owner and it will be removed and the bill sent to the property owner. If the owner does not pay, the association will open a lean on the property. It’s all above board and in the association rules that one agrees to when one buys into the communities.

    These association-bounded communities are hard to avoid. They go for miles in every direction … with their own streets, swimming pools, greenways, paths, and athletic and community centers. The principle is what is good for the communities, not the individual rights of those who live in the communities.

    BTW: The communities are democracies. Association representatives are elected by the property owners. Policies are defeasible in open forums. The associations are managed by professional (and often certified) association managers. Policies are monitored and executed by committees staffed by community volunteers, i.e. architecture, finance, community centers, etc.

    The above focus is on residential properties. The situation for commercial property is no different. Instead of the associations, the county planning boards role in with their standards and powers of enforcements.

As a teacher in the US, I noticed that my Mexican students were often very artistic — I see that it is a national characteristic — going back to the glyphs of Mayan and Aztec time!
    I appreciate your perspective and attempt to show the positive as opposed to the negative we often are exposed to here. I remember in my mother’s day, people were positively interested in Mexican culture.

  39. Galleries serve 3 major functions:

    1. To separate the art from the general population for reasons of public safety
    2. To give the art an opportunity to reflect on its misdeeds and seek a more productive path
    3. To maintain social stability by deterring others from committing similar arts

    Unfortunately, our galleries are dangerously overcrowded, and our revolving door art school policies virtually ensure that art such as the above examples will continue to increase for the foreseeable future.

    It is a privilege to see a sophisticated Confuse and Conquer Jew like Ron Unz singlehandedly tie up hundreds if not thousands of White Trashionalists at once.

    Step 1 : Make a website that WNs use (since they can never build anything on their own). Let any and all anti-Semitic slurs stand on the website to make WNs complacent and even keyboard-courageous.
    Step 2 : Recruit the 2-3 intelligent authors that WNs read (Sailer, Derbyshire, etc.) who happen to bad at making money, so that they write for very little renumeration.
    Step 3 : After a few years, start pushing for normalization of Hispanics (even if illegal; especially if illegal).
    Step 4 : Deploy someone like Fred Reed to generate even more confusion, and then someone like Philip Giraldi to get the anti-Israel wing gathered in one place.

    It works…and it is a lesson in asymmetrical attrition warfare by a sophisticated Confuse and Conquer Jew.

    Ron Unz has said about 95% of this site disputes the fact that the real division is black vs non-black. I am among the 5% that agree with him (although I am more conservative than him, since I think there should be only skilled, legal immigration, not unskilled and certainly never illegal).

    Now, here is the thing. Those who talk about Auschwitz, lampshades, and soap never get moderated here, but those who agree with Ron Unz do. He will even get angry with those who agree with him too vocally, even as any and all anti-Israel content is fully welcome.


    It is because he thinks it will expose his game of 4D chess from the perception of a 70-IQ WN. But I guarantee that it cannot, since the typical White Trashionalist is far below the IQ threshold where they can observe the many pieces in motion. I can describe Ron’s plan in full detail (and I fully support it), without any risk of the WNs figuring anything out (much less leaving this site).

    I am strongly in favor of what Ron Unz is doing.

    I saw an article a few months back that showed that latinos that are born in the US have the highest divorce rate of any race. The “family oriented” reputation doesn’t survive long at all. They have the fattest children, even fatter than blacks, and the overall obesity rate is sky high. It doesn’t appear that they’re adapting very well. They ruin the schools. Anywhere there are a lot of latinos the schools go to pot because they don’t pass the proficiency tests. They’re typically slightly better than blacks but much closer to blacks than they are to whites or asians.

    Do we really want millions of single-parented, uneducated, obese, drug-addled latinos running around? We can’t figure out what to do with our own dysfunctional working class. I’d be more charitable but they’re prejudiced against whites and they don’t seem to think that they need to follow the laws. This is demonstrated by their support of illegals among other things.

  53. Here’s a counterexample, Fred.

    Last week I was out doing an inspection for the department of the federal government for which I work, when I saw something that encapsulated for me the entire fin de siecle mood here in America and signaled the approaching trial of Western civilization that will judge whether it is still worthy to exist.

    Somebody had tagged up the sidewalk, Mexican mafioso-style, with dog shit. Apparently some dog had taken a rather large dump on the sidewalk. The fact that the dog owner didn’t bother to clean it up is itself a serious symptom of decline, but when you add to that the fact that another person—or perhaps the very same owner, I don’t know—decided to execute a piece of gangland graffiti in this fecal medium really blows the mind. He must have taken a stick or something and patiently dragged it through the shit until he produced an 8-foot long example of that typical Cholo script which looks like Jackson Pollack making an attempt at Sanskrit calligraphy.

  54. I love old Fred, but he needs to realize that Mexico – while certainly an important Latin American country – is in most respects atypical of the region. Its obsession with a largely mythical “Aztec” past is one sign of this, as is its barely concealed hatred of the United States. True, anti-gringo sentiments can be found in all Latin American countries but in none of them does this feeling even approach Mexican standards of irrational loathing. Most Latin Americans are not obsessed with the U.S. and treat us like the weather, sometimes good, sometimes bad, but always there. Mexicans are rather unpopular in much of Latin America for various reasons. One reason is their ambition to speak for the region, a role most Latin Americans do not accept. It is notable that Colombia, the largest (by population) Spanish-speaking country in Latin America after Mexico, is hardly a hotbed of anti-gringo sentiment, even considering long ago disputes with the U.S., such as the separation of Panama. Cuba is probably the most pro-U.S. country in Latin America, if you leave out the 5-10 percent of the population stupid enough to actually swallow the Marxist/Castro twaddle. I have spent more than 30 years in Latin America and can count on my fingers how many incidents of anti-Yankeeism I have encountered. Learn the language, be respectful and friendly, avoid personal involvement in local issues, and you will be given a warm reception everywhere.

    @The Anti-Gnostic

    Keep in mind that many of the “emigrants” are not Mexicans at all. Then think about who produced the first several million refugees from Central America. The remember that the same sect is the sponsor of most of the refugees flooding Europe. You seem easy to lead around by divide and conquer.

    How Neocons Destabilized Europe
    …. When I first encountered the neocons in the 1980s, they had been given Central America to play with. President Ronald Reagan had credentialed many of them, bringing into the U.S. government neocon luminaries such as Elliott Abrams and Robert Kagan. But Reagan mostly kept them out of the big-power realms: the Mideast and Europe.

    Those strategic areas went to the “adults,” people like James Baker, George Shultz, Philip Habib and Brent Scowcroft. The poor Central Americans, as they tried to shed generations of repression and backwardness imposed by brutal right-wing oligarchies, faced U.S. neocon ideologues who unleashed death squads and even genocide against peasants, students and workers.

    The result not surprisingly was a flood of refugees, especially from El Salvador and Guatemala, northward to the United States. The neocon “success” in the 1980s, crushing progressive social movements and reinforcing the oligarchic controls, left most countries of Central America in the grip of corrupt regimes and crime syndicates, periodically driving more waves of what Reagan called “feet people” through Mexico to the southern U.S. border…….

    LatinX graffiti is not an argument.

    I also found Reed’s suggestion of graffiti art as supportive of the desirability of illegal alien invasion to be more than a trifle absurd. What, we need wall-painters with spray-cans to overload our schools with non-English-speaking children — fed, housed, clothed and educated at taxpayer expense? And we gain lurid pictures in garish colors on exposed masonry walls?

    This is a good thing?

    Please to demonstrate the advantages, senor.

Ah, there we go again, all hysterical about them illegals, obese Latinos, the need to have a wall complete with landmines, etc. etc. Look guys, we are supposed to be a bright and reasonably open-minded bunch here. Surely, we can hold the position “No illegals” without cultivating scorn and hate for others. Fred’s stock on this site goes down in proportion to the articles he writes showing some interesting facts about the folks south of the border. I realize that many bright folks here may not ever, ever wish to travel to Mexico, but no harm in enjoying Fred’s well-written travelogues. BTW, Mexico does in fact make some good beer (Corona) and some fairly potent tequila. Nice change from the usual Buds and Bourbon. I do hope that the Coronas and Tequila will figure out a way to jump over the wall if and when it comes up.

    They’ve told me you cannot find anything like this in Mexico.

    Man, its like saying, while walking in my neighborhood here in AZ, ‘ You can’t find anything like this in Mexico’. Who are you kidding? I am aware that most ‘refugees’ from Mexico, are mostly illiterate and thrive here in the States because you don’t need a college degree to work construction, landscaping, etc. I have lived in Mexico, and find it very nice, and safe. As a matter of fact, after retiring from military service, I retired in Mexico, and find it a very nice place, to live, and enjoy. Your comments are disregarded, since I am sure you are not familiar with the interior of Mexico, and are familiar, only with your Virginia-local area; enough said.

    We have very strong community associations.

    So do in AZ, and so what? our homes look alike, and are well trimmed, and well kept. Our HOA does not even bother us, because our community keeps things well kept. However, we love our HOA, in my community, the president is my neighbor across the street. Nothing out of the ordinary, it seems that in your area, you do have Lenin in charge!

  67. Give the Latino “artists” a break. True, it is hard to read what they have spray painted on the sides of trains, but when you consider the trains were going pretty fast when the “artists” spray painted them, that does show some talent. Or something…

  68. I am always impressed by artistic talent since I don’t have any. I have a little musical talent but that too is something that knows no cultural boundaries as far as I can tell. (My laptop feeds my B&Ws so I heard the music clearly.) I am somewhat skeptical about the ability of IQ tests to measure across languages. Also, a lot of intelligence occurs below the level of consciousness. Consider a jump shot. If you gave me LeBron James’ body I still might be unable to make a jump shot. The brain has to do a lot of work coordinating all the body parts to suit the changing geometric facts including the proximity of defenders and the various options for dealing with them. If you tried to write it out as an algorithm it would be pretty complicated, to make an understatement. Whitehead used to say that the stuff we actually think about is necessarily a tiny fraction of the stuff we do intelligently. If you look at intelligence that way, maybe those tests are not so informative.

    The problem with south of the border is that most of the people there are not of European descent and those who are are mostly Spanish, which means a relatively violent culture. (Google La Violencia). I like their sexism, Catholicism, and machismo, but dislike the disposition to violence and erratic behavior. But they have a fair number of Jews, who bring culture and probably run the place.

    Who decided that the only way to get upholstered furniture in a pretty color is to pay thousands of dollars for $300 a yard to the trade only fabric?????

    Ever gone to a retail upholstery shop and looked at the disgusting samples they show you? There they are, 300 shades of mud beige. Even bedspread come in nothing but gray beige and mud nowadays.

    You see a lot more color in British and German homes and furniture stores than you do in beige White and mud American homes and furniture stores
    They use a lot of red too.

    I like color. Not one wall in my house is White except the laundry room. There is not one not one thing in my house that is gray beige or any mud color.

    If I have to pay $200 a yard for fabric that isn’t the color of mud, so be it.

    N. Virginia huh? The early colonials didn’t paint their walls White and cover their furniture in mud colors.

    I don’t like the outside walls of houses in color because I like lots of flowers and gray and White are the best colors if you have lots of flowers. But if gray it should be a pale pure gray, not the popular ubiquitous mud gray

    There’s a HOA in Orange County Ca that has a rule that the houses be painted beige with brown trim.

    It also has the rule that the home owner must have the exact shade of beige approved before he can paint his house.

    So a homeowner had his beige paint sample approved. He bought the paint and had the house painted.


    When a color is spread all over a wall or a floor the way the eye sees the color changes from the way the eye sees the color sample

    So this guys beige house looked different, lighter or darker or something from the approved sample.

    The HOA demanded he paint the house all over again in another shade of beige. He didn’t want to spend more money and refused. So he and the HOA sued each other. Don’t know how it came out.
