And you know what? Not just ended up being it published, but it is for sale on Amazon.
The description regarding the written guide reads:

The disclaimer tries to veil its misogyny and racism with comedy:
If youвЂ™re easily offended, this guide is not for your needs. But, you hours of entertainment and serve as a handy visual reference tool if you like to laugh, this “funny because it’s true” guide will give.
The earlier you can get your copy associated with very first industry guide to Latinas associated with united states of america, the sooner it is possible to turn into a chicaspotting specialist, have fun with the US industry like a pro, while making more informed decisions concerning the right chica for you personally.
Um, no. Absolutely absolutely Nothing about it is funny. In reality, considering Joe’s kinds of types вЂ“ Taco Belle (Mexican-American), Bumbshell (Brazilian-American), Cinnamon Swirl (Dominican-American), Hotemalan (Guatemalan-American) вЂ“ one thing pops into the mind, and that is the history that is ugly of switching black colored and brown figures into fodder for activity.
Chicaspotting: A Field Guide To Latinas associated with the usa positions it self to be a literary peoples circus of types by which Joe gleefully defines the look of Mexican women, as an example, as “recognizable by her dusky skin with hefty makeup products, brown locks, brown eyes, and facial features that reveal indigenous United states ancestry. Usually curvy and petite or medium-sized, with big or medium-sized breasts and a butt that is wideвЂ™s flat at the very top and round at the end. Usually away from form because workout is less emphasized in Mexican culture, but wears really tight jeans and tops having a bare midriff to exhibit down her figure anyhow. Hardly ever wears gym that is unflattering in general public or gets tattoos, that are nevertheless considered trashy in Mexico.”
Have you been f**king kidding me personally?
Yet, black colored and brown figures as a type of spectacle goes back towards the 1800s, whenever P.T. Barnum introduced the вЂњGrand Ethnological Congress,” which later showcased вЂњfreaks” and “monstrosities” for general public viewing and twisted admiration. The feminine human anatomy, particularly, ended up being placed on display to fulfill the crowdвЂ™s perverted demands (see: Saartjie Baartman).
Joe’s “guide” to dating U.S. Latinas is not any various, as he is designed to fetishize that is further exoticize a team of ladies of color in an environment where black colored and brown figures carry on being dehumanized. Not just is Joe’s absurd superficiality and promiscuity sufficient to prompt you to scream, but his degrading judgment on Latinas centered on neuroticism, nesting, friendliness and upkeep actually pushes s**t on the advantage.
Shouts to Los Angeles Flama for calling a ban regarding the guide. We are immediately with you.
