Would you prefer a black, gay, or Catalan son?

"Would you prefer to have a black, gay, or Catalan son?". That was the question asked of a participant on a TV show on Spanish TV on October 18th. In the original, the question was: "Si tuvieras un hijo, qué preferirías: que fuera homosexual, que fuera negro o que fuera catalán?" which translated means "If you had a son, which would you prefer: that he were gay, black, or that he were Catalan?"

The xenophobic question was aired on Tele 5, a channel that has also signed a manifesto against other languages in Spain other than Spanish. The text argues that the Spanish language is superior to Catalan, Basque or Galician because it can be understood by all the Spanish people. It forgets that the Spanish Constitution obliges all Spanish citizens to know Spanish, as Franco had done (Franco also forced everybody to use it,) and that all the languages are equal.
Only two weeks ago the same channel broadcast a program about Catalanophobia in Spain. The program showed some examples of the hate that many Spanish people have against the Catalan nation. The question of this article shows that Catalanophobia is rampant. It's a pity that Catalans, and other social minorities, have nobody to go to for justice when TV channels show homophobia, racism or Xenophobia/Catalanophobia. That's why we ask you to... Help Catalonia.

    I just can't believe these things may happen in 21st century. Despite that I'm not black, I fulfill the other two conditions... I must be a fat bastard... How sad to know that this is hapenning nowadays... :(

    When I read this on the news, I wished I had the question posed to me. I'd have answered: "as long as he's Catalan, anything else he is is fine"

    Castilians' history is filled with that kind of racist episodes. Their success is clear enough: they have lost all their colonies less one: Catalonia. In the whole constitutions of south American countries there is an special mention to the cruelty, racism, perfidy and greed of the Spanish conquerors. We, the human beings, cannot expect any loyalty from Spanish people.

    I would castrate the faggot and hang the S.O.B/ or Hija de Puta.........

    I would just shoot the nigger after I castrate the S.O.B/ or Hija de Puta,......

    I would convert the smelly Catalan to Christianity and teach him/her the Christian language of Spanish. Then afterwards I would castrate him/her and then hang the S.O.B/ or Hija de Puta.

    All in 24 hours....

    The question didn't read how long you should keep any of the three.
