'Somos Muchos': Toyota Offers Free Hispanic Pride Stickers


TORRANCE, Calif. — Toyota Motor Corp., hoping to solidify its standing as the top brand for Hispanic buyers in the U.S., is offering drivers a series of stickers that celebrates their Hispanic heritage.

The decals contain the phrase "somos muchos," or "we are many," followed by cultures, regions and popular descriptors from all over Latin America, such as "somos muchos Mexicanos" and "somos muchos Hondurenos." The decals, designed to be stuck on bumpers or windows, come in more than 100 different versions and are available in the U.S. and Puerto Rico.

Toyota is offering the stickers free on the Spanish-language version of its Facebook page. It's also distributing them at upcoming festivals in Los Angeles, Houston, Dallas, Miami, New York and Chicago.

Toyota is the top brand among Hispanic buyers in the U.S., according to vehicle registration data gathered by R.L. Polk and Associates. The automaker says it has held that title since 2004.

In a recent speech to the National Council of La Raza, Toyota President Yoshi Inaba said one of every four Hispanic car buyers in the U.S. bought a Toyota last year.

Yes.

Imagine the following on a bumper sticker:

Ford. Strong and Dependable, Like White People.

Maybe this will be the straw that breaks the camel's back and forces ARFCOM to start recommending something other than a Toyota every time someone mentions owning a truck, but somehow, I doubt it.

Does not compute... Or at least in my experiences...

So easy to modify from "Somos muchos...." to "Somos nachos...." with one cut to the 'm' and a sharpie to the 'u'. I see much mayhem if I spot one of these stickers in the wild.

Toyota must figure that their most loyal customer base is Hispanics that are overly proud or maybe even racist. I'd love to see their demographic and psychographic info.

It's good marketing.


The Hispanic population is growing.


As good capitalists we should embrace this tactic.

No we won't because we are selective capitalists, most people on ARFCOM are all on board for freedom of speech, freedom of religon, capitalism, and so on until someone or something they don't agree with comes up and then they want to start stopping the freedoms.

another thing to consider is that specific pride is still generally allowed.

I've seen plenty of Scottish pride, Kiss me I'm Irish, the welsh Dragon or Hungarian themed bumperstickers, license plate holders or decals on vehicles.

Which makes more sense than a blanket white pride declaration. Skin color doesn't say much. My fiancee's family is Irish, the celebrate their heritage openly by learning history, eating cultural foods, songs, dances and other stuff. Is it racism? Nope. I've even seen a few harp or shamrock bumperstickers on their vehicles.


The other issue is PR.


White people tying their pride to Nazism, the Klan, the firehose wielding side of the civil rights movement and Jerry springer was a bad plan. Gonna take a while to live those down.

That cocksucker earl stewart from N. Palm Bch, stopped running his toyoto commercials in espanol. He would rather sell his cars than leave them on the lot till some sombrero wearing, taco eating, border jumping, grass cutting drunk, who said 'fuck my mama in mexico' kept enough money in the states to make a down payment.

This. It's a marketing gimmick, I'm finding it hard to be pissed about it. I'd still buy a Toyota over any Obama Motors vehicle.

Okay you need to stop making sense. It's better for Toyota to not sell to a growing market so then when they need a bail out ARFCOM can start bitching about Toyota's bad business sense.

no the black and hispanic minorities tied whites to those, the al sharptons and jesse jacksons used those against us and the liberal media and both a majority of the minority community and the liberal white apologists jumped all over that band wagon. and how is it bad that we speak out against a blanket statement of hispanic pride when it is obviously racist? you cant say its ok for blacks and hispanics to have a race based pride when you tell whites that it is bad
