Jo, Jo, Jo!



It is about time I got something Christmas related up on this blog. There are many Spanish language billboards in Tucson though most of them are found on the south side of Tucson and particularly the southwest side which is predominantly Hispanic.

According to Wikipedia as of the 2000 census, the population of Tucson was 486,699 of which 70.15% white, 4.33% black or African-American, 2.27% Native American, 2.46% Asian, 0.16% Pacific Islander, 16.85% from other races, and 3.79% from two or more races. 35.72% of the population were Hispanic of any race.

Shoppers from Mexico spend an estimated $1 million per day in Tucson.

I hadn't realised there were spanish language billboards even though I knew about the population figures. This is quite a shock... a good one in a way!

Despite the morons who want to build a fence between Mexico and the US, I think Spanish speakers and Mexicans bring culural riches to Arizona, not to meantion all that money when they come up here to shop.
