Come on, those are incredibly weak strawman arguments there. The Mexicans are showcasing an ancient civilization (their ancestors) that includes an entire spectrum of good and bad along with cultural aspects such as food, music, architecture, art and more. And the Pirates of the Caribbean is a Disney Company spin off. If Disney wants to make an Al Capone movie then fine. The city of Chicago should not be promoting a gangster thug piece of trash like Al Capone in any way.
