Carolla Blames Mexican Immigrants And "Culture" For CA's Struggles

On his Wednesday podcast, Adam Carolla ripped Mexican immigrants for their impact on California's public-education system. (via Jeff Poor/Daily Caller)

“Schools are fucking ruined, and schools are ruined — not because they’re out of money, but because we’re flooded with Mexicans, and they’re not into studying,” Carolla said. “They don’t come from that culture, and we’re not asking them to change. That’s the thing. We have a culture that is not focused on the schoolwork. It’s a different culture. It’s, by the way, why their culture is failing, and their country, ironically — it’s why they’re here. They’re here because they ain’t into studying. And somebody needs to tell them to get into studying.”

“The family has to get into studying,” Carolla continued. “The families have to be — the family is all you’re ever going to use, or all you’re ever going to need, when it comes to this topic. There’s just not enough money for the school system. There’s not enough principals. … You’ve heard this speech a million times. Families need to take cultures. Basically what we need to is go, ‘Look, here’s our culture. Our culture values family, studying and hard work and education.’ That’s our culture. Now you’re presumably coming from a country that does not focus on that as much in your culture.”

“Are there fucked up things about our culture? Yes,” Carolla added. “Are there good things about your culture? Yes. But when you stand back and you look at the totality of where you would like your child raised, you go here. Now, if we change this culture to your culture, we’re not going to have our culture and then we will no longer be where we need to be.”
