    I have spent time in South Texas as well. The culture is different, but it is incorrect to say that the races don't mix in West Texas. Probably also depends on what you call West Texas too.

    Fair enough, but just note I didn't say the races don't mix, nor did I mean to imply such.

    A hispanic with a Harvard degree has more cachet than some guy from the neighborhood. Think the Castro brothers or Henry Cisneros.

    An anglo with a hispanic nickname has more cachet than some rich kid with an Irish name in El Paso.

    Makes sense to use it if you have it.

    By the way, I was living in the panhandle when W ran for Congress against Kent Hance and got his azz handed to him. He came across as an Ivy Leaguer. The next time I heard him a few years later he had affected a Texas drawl and got elected governor. I was impressed with him. For a while.
