Levy's divisive, hate-filled, derogatory anti-immigrant rhetoric motivated Attorney General candidate Sean Coffey to give a frank interview condemning the gubernatorial candidate's use of the pejorative "anchor babies" to refer to the U.S.-born children of foreign women.

The local newspaper writes: "To most Americans whose parents are or were immigrants, the term 'anchor baby' is a slap in the face with the same force the 'N' word has for African Americans, the term 'wetback' has for Mexicans, and the 'F' ('Fontucky') word has for proud Fontana residents." Board Member Kathy Binks explained that she was unaware the characterization was offensive, agreed to help with a city-wide campaign against hate, and even herself signed the petition calling for her apology (now that's really classy), saying "I am stunned at what that term means. It's a wakeup call for me."

Do you think it's insulting to call someone born in America to illegal immigrants an 'anchor baby'?

A homo is a man. If you are not a homo you are not a man.

See, this is what i mean by ignorance. You assume I'm insulting you, but I'm just calling you a man.

"Homo" Is short for "homosexual".
If yoor trying to call me the fantasy cretures "Homo Spiens"
Then its still insulting because this creture never exsisted.
12 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Thursday 4/8/10 - 4:29:35 PM EST (GMT-5)
You ARE a Homo Sapiens, dumbass.

It's the proper name of your species.

Homo means man in Latin. It's not short for homosexual.

"Homo Sapiens" means "wise man" or "modern man". It's just what humans are. It's not a fantasy creature, because unless you are an alien you are one.

Jesus bella, will you get homosexuality off of your mind?! Sometimes you make me think you're secretly in the closet.
12 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Thursday 4/8/10 - 4:30:49 PM EST (GMT-5)
^I should correct that. Vir means man in Latin, homo means human.

You're still a homo, bella.

The Proper name for Man is Human.
We are a Race of Intelligent Beings, "Homo Sapiens" imply that we "evolved" from apes, But that is simply not true.
A Man is member of the Human Race, Not the fictnal "Homo Sapiens".
12 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Thursday 4/8/10 - 4:38:21 PM EST (GMT-5)
you're an idiot...you honestly think that evolution didn't happen? What about the people that are being born without appendixes or gall bladders, organs we no longer use because we cook our meat...hum, evolving perhaps?
12 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Thursday 4/8/10 - 4:39:18 PM EST (GMT-5)
Human is english, you dumbass.

I'm speaking in Latin, which English pretty much copies off of.

Do you really think that the world began speaking English?

I can translate EVERYTHING you said, except for Homo Sapiens, into Latin.

A vir is a man. A puer is a boy. A puella is a girl.

All in Latin. "Human Race" even is humanus.

"Homo Sapiens" is a scientific name, the classification of what humans are. Just like the scientific names for all plants and animals.
12 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Thursday 4/8/10 - 4:40:31 PM EST (GMT-5)
I seriously can't believe bella thinks that the world began in English. I just seriously can't.

You stupid parvus puer.
12 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Thursday 4/8/10 - 4:42:40 PM EST (GMT-5)
Homo, homos, m. man.

Yep, right there in my Latin text book, bella.
12 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Thursday 4/8/10 - 4:44:44 PM EST (GMT-5)

12 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Thursday 4/8/10 - 4:48:50 PM EST (GMT-5)
Vir, viri, m. man.

Also in my textbook. Hm. Well I'm assuming homo relates to humans overall, and vir relates to man, as in "Viri in viam stabant" which means "The men were standing in the road".

Homo would be used like so: Homos vitium" or man's fault.
