Wow, fantastic job taking his point out of context and attaching charged adjectives to it.
What is socially acceptable, right or wrong, in another country does not make it socially acceptable in this county and this city. Having a common respect for the general population/your neighbor, whether you know them or not, while holding one another to a higher level of verbal discourse IS a higher set of standards, and if you want to label that as bigoted/racist then you're missing the point completely while hijacking those terms.
He said "We have better standards than Central America" ("puto" chant is in Mexico, by the way, which is part of North America and not considered part of Central America). That can be considered highly offensive, and rightfully so.
As I said, if you want people to follow your moral rules of not offending anyone, follow those rules yourself. Don't be a hypocrite. And if he didn't mean it, he better be more careful with his words because ones words is all we have to go by.
