Cingular Removes Racist Ringtone

Ring ring! Who’s there? Cultural insensitivity, that’s who.

Cingular pulled a ringtone from its offerings yesterday due to its “blatantly offensive” nature. Reportedly, the ringtone started with a siren and then a southern male drawled, “This is la Migra,” slang for Border Patrol.

“Por favor, put the oranges down and step away from the cell phone. I repeat-o, put the oranges down and step away from the telephone-o. I’m deporting you back home-o,” continued the voice.

The ringtone was developed by Barrior Mobile, owned by Lagardere Active North American, a U.S. division of a French media company.

Guess your neck can get red in the French Riveria, too.

    …..Man, we love Mexicans in Alabama! They are rebuilding a fucked-up economy in grand style ’round these hyar parts. It’s too late to now start trying mass deportation. We’d be screwed. And that’s assuming that all the illegals would calmly board the train back to Juarez…

    …..We’re overrun with lazy ‘mericun slugs that won’t go to work, or can’t pass a combination drug-test/felony check/HS-Diploma test. And they’re surely going to quit when it reaches 95 degrees in July!

    …..If it takes a Star-Spangled Banner in Spanish, or whatever, I’m for it. We’re a nation built on immigrants willing to work their asses off. Slamming the door in Hispanic faces has never worked, and we desperately need a serious infusion of their work-ethic.

    …..Besides, we’ll never be able to seal US borders up with a land-war going on in Asia. At last count, I see 220 million US folk, and 2 billion Muslims. This is ten against one, people! It’s time to not only pull out, but give a very well-written “sorry, dudes, we fucked up” speech.

    …..Otherwise, we’re just sucking precious oil out of their deserts in order to preserve our own resources. You wonder why they hate us?
