Sue Ellen's use of the term "Latino Gang" made me think about Dallas and ethnicity. At first one might think that having Latinos Marta, Vicente, his Venezuelan goons and the Latino gang in prison as con-artists, killers and extortionists is a politically incorrect faux pas on the part of the writers. But is it?
Let's remember that the most honest character so far has been Elena, a "Mexican", as JR calls her. And let's remember that Vicente blames Chavez for his country oil mobsters turning into crime, a typical right-wing move to villainize Chavez. Chavez nationalized his country's oil fields, which is the absolutely correct thing to do for the good of all citizens of a nation.
And the real bad guys of course are JR & his son, white guys, and let's not forget neither that white shark lawyer who put the South Fork deal together or Sue Ellen, who's running for governor and using her position to bribe and coerce executives and medical examiners. But these white folks never resort to murder.
So far only the Latinos have. The most violent crimes have been the murder of Marta and the beating of John Ross, all by Latinos, so what's the message?
