    Can someone explain why pork chop is offensive? I've never heard that being offensive to Hispanics.

    No they do not! You know them things can see a pimple on your face from way up there? LOL My Dominican co-worker told me that. My mom is just getting Latino/Hispanic differentiated. Now this! We've got many Portugese neighbors that have moved on our block in the last two years. I'm just going to ask them.
