A DAY WITHOUT A MEXICAN -- ILLUSTRATED SCREENPLAY & SCREENCAP GALLERY
I WAS A MEXICAN IN A PAST LIFE.
I WANT YOU TO COME BACK. WHERE'S JOSE ?
MISSING: LORNIE I LOVE YOU! TAKE ME WITH YOU!
[Newsperson] Earlier today, a SWAT team was called on the scene, and was able to confiscate 600 boxes of fresh tomatoes, 200 bags of oranges, and 1/2 pound of crack cocaine.
[Restaurateur] It's been an absolute fucking nightmare. Can I say "fucking" here? I had to call people who were in the black market, people from the seventies who used to do drugs. Now they're selling fruits and vegetables. I had to risk my life to go there, and my car, for tomatoes! I didn't know whether they were prison people, or people from an MTV video, for God's sake. It was frightening!
[Restaurateur] And then I came here, and the place was a mess. I had to wash a dish. I am going to have to close my restaurant if they don't come back. I need these Mexican individuals.
Every Hispanic on the West Coast is presumed to be Mexican.
