Eva Longoria Earns Master’s Degree in Chicano Studies

Jesse Spiro, Yahoo!, May 23, 2013

Eva Longoria got to toss her graduation cap with her fellow Cal State University Northridge students on Wednesday.

“Big day today!!!” the 38-year-old actress Tweeted. “Very excited to graduate for my Master’s degree in Chicano Studies! You’re never too old or too busy to continue your education!”

According to TMZ, Eva spent three years completing her degree, which she began while still working on “Desperate Housewives.” She spent time doing school work on the set of the ABC drama.

The actress’ degree is not honorary and she reportedly attended classes in person at the Southern California university. Her thesis was reportedly titled, “Success STEMS From Diversity: The Value of Latinas in STEM Careers” (STEM is an acronym for science, technology, engineering and math).

    A degree in La raza studies. Sh’e ready for a govenment job with the State of California.

    • “Mexican-Americans love education, so they go to night school, and they take Spanish, and get a B”.
      –Cheech Marin

      • I had a friend who died a couple of years ago. He was a Mexican immigrant who had earned a Ph.D. from a university in Indiana. He started a class in an Illinois State University: “Spanish for the Spanish Speaking.” The students demanded that he be removed from the class because of his unreasonable demands. He actually expected them to speak correct Spanish in class.

        • Michael P

          He must have been a real Spanish who spoke Castillian, not spanglish

          • OlderWoman

            If he’s a Mexican he can’t be a ‘real Spanish’.

      • François

        Ouch! And this is a joke told by one of them!

      • The__Bobster

        In HS, I got better grades in Spanish than the cane-cutters. They thought they could just breeze through with their Havana slang.

    • dogbone

      Watch what happens when a negro gets a masters with the thesis “African’s contribution to Space Travel.” They will become head of NASA (Not About Space Anymore).

      • Funruffian

        When all of these major programs like NASA get inundated with browns and blacks they will soon realize they need the managerial skills, organizational skills and technical acumen from YT and Asians. They will fail miserably and beg Whites to bail them out of their squalor and crashing failures.

    Did they publish it? I have been looking for Shaq’s dissertation as well…

    Don’t you hate when these brilliant intellectuals with Master’s Degrees go out in public and forget their underwear?
    http://tinyurl.com/og746hm

    (Sigh) I can’t stand when that happens.

    • The__Bobster

      I’m sure that happened by accident….just like her nipple slip a few months ago. I used to call the Reconquista “Nip”. Now I call her “Lips ‘n Nip”.

    • Snowhitey

      Today’s version of a “lady?” More Hispanic family values (I’m not saying there aren’t plenty of lowlife whites who do this same disgraceful display; in fact, I think they may have started this shameful practice). Does anyone wear underwear anymore? I hope she wipes well. One doesn’t want to soil an expensive dress with unsightly leakage. Yuck!

      Less and less is separating man from beast. What’s next, our young men lifting their legs at fire hydrants?

      • Women think they look good not wearing actual underwear that gives some coverage of the rear, but I don’t think any of them have ever seen themselves from behind on a hot day. Also it could be their girlfriends are too catty to tell them their rear is dimpled and sags and instead think “I look better than that”.

      • The__Bobster

        Mestizos are known for urinating around the bars they frequent.

        • OlderWoman

          Actually I went to Hussong’s in Ensenada in the 70’s. Mestizos urinate under the bar or under their table. We found the cleaning people hosing down the entire bar before they reopened the next morning.

        • François

          They mark their territories like dogs or what?!?

          Do they think doing so, is macho or something??

          That’s just idiotic and disgusting, and let’s call it for what it is!!!,

      • Don’t worry, looks like she is wearing a tampon.

      • OnGuard

        I’ve recently witnessed 2 grown men, both black, urinate in public. One was in the grocery store parking lot! I talked to a policeman who said the judge doesn’t want that ticketed anymore! I said “So, instead of evolving, we’re devolving?” He replied “Yes,sadly, I guess so!”

    • sbuffalonative

      This is happening far too much to be considered a wardrobe malfunction anymore.
      These women are now just shamelessly slutting themselves for the camera and public to get their names in the media and among the public.

      • Oil Can Harry

        Kinda like the celebrity wannabes whose private sex tapes are “accidentally” (cough cough) leaked to the public.

      • Michael P

        Any publicity is good publicity for the Hollywood has-beens

      • OlderWoman

        Longoria is only an affirmative action actor.

    • Yale2001

      I would never consider someone with a degree in Chicano Studies “brilliant”. I promise you could do it as well, if you just showed up.

      • Robert

        Would you consider someone with a degree in Irish studies brilliant?

    • Here’s a pic:

    • Don’t you hate when they leave their tampon string hanging out?

      http://i.imgur.com/bhx3m14.jpg

    • She was proving she was still ovulating. Notice the white string ….

  • This proves that Eva Longoria has a pulse. But not much more.

  • Korpiklaani

    I’ve earned a Masters degree in bation…would you like to guess how hard it was?

    • dogbone

      I am sure it was hard at first, but after you received it wasn’t hard anymore.

      It took me 30 seconds to figure that out: master-bation. If you were black, you would get a Nobel Prize

    • The first 5 times I read this on the scroll down I thought it said B-A-T-O-N.
      .
      No you are just killing me. This is a hilarious post.

  • Licurg Enescu

    “STEM is an acronym for science, technology, engineering and math.”

    You mean all those things that you mestizos never contributed to, and know absolutely nothing about? WOW !

    • Oil Can Harry

      You’re soooo wrong! Latinos know a lot about STEMs.

      They trim them while working as gardeners.

    • “Success STEMS From Diversity: The Value of Latinas in STEM Careers”
      Let me guess, after the cover page, it’s several pages of blank papers?

      • So CAL Snowman

        nah, just a bunch of crappy carne asada recipes and the locations of various Home Depots in So Cal.

      • sbuffalonative

        Likely, it was page after page describing how ‘vibrant’ Hispanic culture is and how this ‘vibrant’ culture is transforming America (into Mexico).

    • bigone4u

      Texas is turning out large numbers of Mexican-American scientists and engineers. Look for the next space shuttle to have a tricked out paint job, extra large chrome wheels, and a Latina in a bikini standing next to it in all the publicity photos.

    • sbuffalonative

      Too true.
      And which category does Chicano Studies fit, science, technology, engineering, or math?

      • A Freespeechzone

        Myth.

  • So CAL Snowman

    I can’t wait to get my Master’s degree in “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo” Studies

    • Korpiklaani

      You should go for your Master’s in Bation… I had loads of fun.

      • Dude

        It’s a very hand on experience.

        • Korpiklaani

          And a very raw lesson palm.

      • Does it give a polishing to your “resume”?

  • Homo_Occidentalis

    It’s so cute when these Mexcrements try to preach diversity to us. Why doesn’t she try to get a few of her fellow wise Latinas hired at some Japanese research laboratories? I hear they are suffering from a crippling lack of diversity over there. Oh wait, no, they are already 100% diverse.

    • The__Bobster

      The Reconquista was sooooo disappointed when she discovered that she was 87% White.

    • NM156

      I prefer “Latrinos”.

  • I’ve already commented on this exact same article on other websites, so I’m only preaching to the choir here. On a positive note, at least 99% of the comments on other sites are making fun of her degree. I think I asked about getting my own Master’s in Redneck Studies.
    I would love to read her paper though.

  • The__Bobster

    Her thesis was reportedly titled, “Success STEMS From Diversity: The Value of Latinas in STEM Careers”
    ____________

    Wow, it must’ve taken her a whole 15 minutes to write.

    • The comments on the original Yahoo article are actually much funnier than what’s on here. I posted my own dos pesos on it several hours ago.

    • joemcgee

      To be a bit serious, I think anyone who spends any time on this type of thing is a sorry individual. Plus, there was some idiotic “Professor” actually standing up talking about this stupid stuff without bursting out laughing. Sad.

    • NM156

      Ha, the Facebook group, “Latina Engineers” has all of 40 members, most of whom appear to be all Spanish, no matter her country of origin.

    • dogbone

      It was ghost written by the same person that wrote Berry’s thesis.

  • The__Bobster

    “Very excited to graduate for my Master’s degree in Chicano Studies!

    I expect most Dreamers will get similar worthless racial grievance degrees.

  • Erasmus

    Which only goes to show that Eva Longoria is a true chicana. Why didn’t she major in basket weaving or, something closer to latino “culture”, serial baby-making?

    • She did essentially get her Masters in Basket Weaving. See my post below about that which lists the required classes and electives.

  • Terry

    Big deal. Since when does it take 3 years to learn about your race, ah I mean hybrid race. That’s right, Chicano’s love to call themselves la Raza, but there’s only one problem. la Raza or the race as they call it, is a hybrid race. In other words, Hispanics are not a race of their own. They are a hybrid race, or a mixer of races. This is why God Yahweh has rejected them. They can’t have eternal life.

    • OlderWoman

      Your last two sentences are a lie.

      • bigone4u

        Disagree. His statements are a matter of faith and so can’t be tested for truth.

    • bigone4u

      I forget where I heard this, but the Mexicans believe they are the “cosmic race” designed by ancient astronauts and intended to absorb all other races into their cosmic race. I believe this is taught in universites. I’m doing research in this area and will post anything relevant later. Anyway, their goal is to absorb all races.

      • Korpiklaani

        Honestly I can say Alex Jones has been pretty up front about La RAZA, that’s where I first heard the Chicano studies professor in LA claim Hispanic people are the cosmic race descended from ETs like other world ETs, just as crazy as the Nation of Islam.

      • François

        I heard about that theory. I just cannot see in a thousand years why THEY would think they are some kind of genetically engineered master race, or whatever…

      • OlderWoman

        ‘…their goal is to absorb all races’.

        So they’re competing with blacks.

  • OlderWoman

    A useless degree.

    • Funruffian

      I agree. But she would be more aprt to get a job in the government than a White man with a Phd in Quantum Physics. What does that say about Liberal Arts education?

  • So CAL Snowman

    If this Chicana was so interested in diversity she would have mastered in AFRICAN studies or ASIAN studies, not Chicano studies. Just another La Raza racist.

    • François

      Certainly seems like it. In the vocabulary used by such people, “diversity” seems to mean anything but White, or relating to the dispossession of Whites, depending upon the context.

  • Her thesis was reportedly titled, “Success STEMS From Diversity: The Value of Latinas in STEM Careers”, yet she gets a degree in Chicano Studies.
    .
    It’s not honorary. I am sooooo impressed. Theses studies degrees are the equivalant of a person from Japan coming over here to get a degree in Japanese.
    .
    She spent time doing school work on the set of the ABC drama.
    .
    Doubt it ……

      Wow, doesn’t that seem a real hoot! It probably entails spending 2 hours a week serving tacos in some stink hole.

  • bigone4u

    I believe San Antonio had an official Eva Longoria day in the past. I guess it’s time for the mayor to declare another one. See if you get your mayor to give you a day when you get YOUR degree.

    I want to read her paper. I’ll bet its a hoot. While teaching at the university, I noted that the English profs would sometimes return student papers by leaving them in a box in the hallway. Naughty me would sneak a peek after hours. Absolutely abysmal and beyond. Yet the women English teachers, touch and feely and minority friendly, gave them all high grades. Higher ed is a scam, with the bubble soon to burst.

  • Bon, From the Land of Babble

    A junk degree in racial chauvinism and illegal alien studies, the very definition of “educated fool.”

    Now she’s qualified for a job in Aztlan flipping quesadillas.

    Don’t give up your day job, you dumb racist.

  • Mr. E

    “Her thesis was reportedly titled, “Success STEMS From Diversity”
    If I was her professor, I’m already done reading her thesis. F.

    • bigone4u

      If you’re white you wouldn’t be allowed to teach “Chicano studies.” (I get the creeps just typing out that phrase.)

  • NM156

    Anyone do a study on how much the cost of a college education has been inflated by the strong demand for leftist garbage liberal arts degrees?

  • White Mom in WDC

    So now Eva Longoria can hold up her MS degree when she is doubling for a lawn jockey

  • daniel

    That’s awesome Eva, now go pick me some strawberries…

  • borogirl54

    So what is she going to do now, go to night school to become a lawyer? What can you do with a degree in Chicano studies but become an activist. You cannot really make a living off of being activist or can you?

    • jane johnson

      Longoria in 2020?

    • dogbone

      She will run for president in 2016 against the Republicans … and win.

    • The__Bobster

      Oh, she’s perfectly qualified for a gubmint job.

  • gemjunior

    Their brainSTEMs are about the only STEMs that Wise Latinas can ever boast of. Real STEM careers do not involve any credits for being Hair-On-A-Stick or Tits-On-A-Stick which is about as talented as this Wanna-Be Mexican (why?) gets. She swallowed the Hollywood Liberal Victim Is Good bait hook, line and sinker and would trade any and all of her considerably European-inspired looks so that she could be a bonafide Squat? Must be stupid.

  • Eagle_Eyed

    I find her topic amusing. There are probably more Latinas writing about STEM majors than those actually majoring in a STEM field.

    • bigone4u

      http://cue.usc.edu/news/NSF-Report.pdf

      I too find it amusing, but the linked government sponsored report shows that there are thousands of Hispanics receiving degrees in STEM. The power elites in education are pushing Hispanics to get degrees in STEM. What their hidden agenda is, I can’t tell.

  • Nick Gherz

    U.S. born Mexican chicks are known for being good looking, horny & dumber than a bag of hammers.

  • JDInSanDiego

    I work in a building with about 200 people and around 85% are engineers. Most are them are white. Asians make up 25%. There’s one black male and one black female – and neither one of them is noteworthy for their work. There are 2 and a half Mexican males I can think of but not one chicana, unless I count the janitors as sanitation engineers. San Diego is 28.8% hispanic. Seems they’re falling short.

  • Kathy M

    Wow! What a valuable degree!

    Eva has the mind of a black woman.

  • guest

    Why doesn’t she pursue getting her own STEM degree? She could lead by example. Oh, I know why, she can’t pass the physics and calculus classes. That’s why she had to get her degree in a can’t-fail subject area.

  • LastBastionOfHope

    More like her success stems from being attractive and opening her legs for the wealthy and powerful men.

  • Frank Wheeler

    I hope she makes her thesis available online in case my sleeping pills don’t work.

    • Or in case Mad Magazine wants to reprint it.

    • I hope she makes it available for “Mad Magazine” to reprint.

    • I hope she makes it available so “Mad Magazine” can reprint it.

  • George White

    She is a HOWLING anti-white racist. Ironically, the rotten little witch is 70% white! I guess she hates herself.

    • Greg Thomas

      Don’t they all? They all identify with their diverse side, throwing their White side under the bus.

      • OlderWoman

        Because of their low IQ.

      • François

        Like Obama.

    • Bossman

      What are the metrics that you used to come up with that number?

  • Bud

    She’s a racist revanchist of the first order. The fact that it doesn’t hurt her (fading) career shows who’s really the victims of institutionalized racism. And she probably WILL end up as a Geebs me dat por favor government employee. That isn’t a joke.

    • Greg Thomas

      It doesn’t hurt her career because we now have some 50 million mestizos in this country who agree with her.

  • AllSeeingEyeSpy

    “Success STEMS From Diversity”

    The actually translation of the word diversity is racism.
    So, according to the chicano studies department, success derives from racism.

  • SoCal LoCal

    Ironically, STEM majors success does not STEM from their diversity. They are nearly all white or Asian males.

  • Funruffian

    She’s just a Hollywood whore who has engaged in miscegany at least several times, always willing to spread her legs for the Hollywood potentates and mavens until she became a household name. But like many other Latina/Mestizo strlets they rode on the primrose path of the Latin Movement from the late 1990’s like J.Lo, Aguilera, Ricky Martin, et al. Latinos like this make Whites hate them, but not all of them share this divershitty meme.

  • I hope she posts this on line. I want to know how Hispanics contribute to the STEM field. I cannot think of any examples.

  • bubo

    I’ve heard a degree in Chicano studies carries some weight. La Quinta will allow you to bypass the 1st 2 stages of bed making and toilet cleaning. She’ll still have to be tested on her hospital corners though.

  • A Reader

    Academic sophistication of Chicano studies is appropriate for high school dropouts. Like in “from the dropouts, by the dropouts, and for the dropouts”. They preach primitive, illogical, and incoherent anti-American propaganda.

    Any American university that harbors Chicano studies should be ashamed of itself.

  • A Reader

    What the main purpose of diversity is, one can see in the IRS scandal.

    The “diversified” IRS workforce launches attacks on what they consider “white racists” code-named “conservatives skeptical of Obama historic presidency”.

  • David Ashton

    What about Rihanna, Beyonce and especially The Three Degrees?

    LOL. Masters degree in Chicano studies. REEEAAAL useful, and graduates wonder why they can’t find a job.

    “Success STEMS From Diversity”… Good lord. What meaningless tripe.

  • Formerly Known As..

    Longoria was fun in Desperate Housewives-the show was one of my guilty pleasures. But she’s become a real pain of late. Longoria may be TexMex, but she’s mostly Europid and Arabic in background. As I’ve always maintained since I was of sufficient maturity to grasp these things-the entertainment industry, more than anything else, exists to brainwash the great masses of idiots, who spend too much time and energy worshipping these creatures. Every last one of these “stars” is a vector for degenerate ideas. Matters not if it’s discovering one’s “diversity”, or adopting non-white kids when you’ve begun to see your leading lady years disappear in the rearview mirror. They did anything and everything to “make it”, and they’ll do anything to keep it. I hope one day all the present bunch of “hot” actresses end up doing remakes of all those horror films from the 60s, like “Straightjacket” or “Hush, Hush Sweet Charlotte”. It’d serve ’em right.

    If Hitler, or even Franco..came back tomorrow, you can bet that Longoria and her ilk would be donning the crooked cross and black armbands in a nanosecond.
