On immigrants and magic negroes in Foobland......

Another of Lynn's favorite shortcuts is to have a character's parent or grandparent be an immigrant. Since all she has to do to give the person a background is to make his or her relative a stereotype, it saves her a lot of time trying to come up with a car and home for the person; just add water and stir and you've got instant Exotic Foreigner. This allows her to pay lip service to multicultural while keeping her fearful ignorance of the non-Wasp world intact. Another example of this trend towards know-nothingism is her odd fetish towards having white women making some swarthy fellow of a different culture the object of a screwy romantic fantasy. When they were tired of pretending they wanted to really become part of his (inferior) culture, they made up some nonsense about how he couldn't survive in the Honky Paradise they are their cracker asshole husband lived in. What's really annoying is that their saps repeated the idiotic bullcrap about how they'd wither and die like hothouse flowers instead of adapting and thus being a threat to Lynn's narrow world view.
