I think the next time I see Dartmouth on a resume, I'm going to give it the same respect as a resume with University of Phoenix on it.

Whenever I hear or read "Chi O," I'm reminded of this little ditty I learned in college some 30+ years ago:

[Sung to to the tune of Heigh-Ho]

We want our f*ck

Exactly. America is the land where international holidays come to be butchered, thrown into a meat grinder, and turned into capitalist sausage.

If the holiday is even the slightest bit fun, we can add alcohol to it, slap a few corporate logos on a sponsorship event, and away we go.

See, for example:
- St. Patrick's Day
- Cinco de Mayo
- Diwali

I wonder if a Greek-American student could tear the whole Dartmouth fraternity and sorority system down by expressing his/her offense over the use of Greek letters for organizations that don't even have actual Greek students? Someone needs to try it. That would be hilarious.

Cinco de Mayo festivities that celebrate all that is wonderful about Mexican culture are awesome. The promotion of negative stereotypes by some idiots does get on mah nerves, though.

Are you white? Do you use the word "fiesta" when throwing a Cinco de Mayo charity fundraiser? Then you are as racist as a deadbeat cattle rancher in Nevada who hangs out with the owner of the Clippers

At least that's what I'm being told.

It's not racist if you think all Latin American people are smelly Mexican illegals willing to work for pennies on the dollar doing jobs that no U.S. citizen would ever want if the only Latin American people you've ever interacted with are smelly Mexican illegals willing to work for pennies on the dollar ding jobs that no U.S. citizen would ever want.

Why should it be perfectly acceptable for a bunch of white students to just decide they're throwing a "Mexican" party, with little or no actual knowledge of what Mexican culture is like? The lady who wrote the letter is right - Cinco de Mayo is basically just treated as an excuse to dress in ridiculous ponchos/sombreros and drink tequila for white people. It's parading around a bunch of cultural assumptions and stereotypes for cheap thrills.

That we've done it for decades/centuries, doesn't mean that it's *right*. What's wrong for asking for a little more introspection about why we do these things? About whether we *should* do these things.

What real "problem" is to a lot of people.

Stop expecting everyone to worship non-stop at the alter of multiculturalism. Sometimes people want an festive excuse to get drunk with strangers and have fun. People have used holidays, real or made up, for this reason for ages. St. Patties, Day, Halloween, New Years, and yes Cinco de Mayo, among many others. Even Christmas parties are an excuse to get drunk and feel up your drunk secretary at an office party. Nobody is disrespecting your culture any more than they disrespect their own on other holidays. Who cares?

or does she just shop at Walmart and commit 'cultural appropriation and the inappropriate usage of cultural clothing'?

Beat me to it. But yes you're right. That seems to be the overriding message a lot of these groups are really trying to say. And a lot of us are getting pretty damned tired of it.

She decreed her distaste for "the Americanization of Cinco de Mayo and its construction as a drinking holiday in the United States, cultural appropriation and the inappropriate usage of cultural clothing, and the exploitation of groups of people and cultures for the sake of business opportunities."

Tough shiat, that's what we do.

Want us to stop? Better beat us in a war.

And the average Mexican doesn't wear a sombrero, poncho, bandolier or shaggy moustache on a daily basis either. The point I'm making is that an American wearing a sombrero to a party is no more racist or culturally insensitive than a non-european wearing a business suit.

I swear, if some Irish-American tried to pull this stunt with St. Patrick's Day, I wouldn't be surprised if all of Boston would hunt that guy down, beat him to a pulp and then hit the bars afterward for a job well done.

We could just celebrate "We Kicked Mexico's Ass Day," but we'd have to move Groundhog Day to some other date.

I wager you can have a nice Cinco De Mayo party without being racist.  It can potentially be racist.  I hope the little biatch is from Puebla or else she has no reason to celebrate that bastard of a holiday as a Mexican. I'm first/second generation Mexican-American and I don't celebrate it because I'm not descended from people from Puebla.  I couldn't even tell you where it was aside from that it is located in Mexico.

You know what my family has appropriated and mixed in with our traditions? Halloween and Day of the Dead (nominally).  Wonder if she'd get offended by it.

The "dressing in ponchos/sombreros" thing  is racist, I agree. That's appropriating a specific cultural tradition (though sombreros are actually Spanish in origin, not Mexican). Eating Tex-Mex (which is essentially American anyway) and drinking tequila, on the other hand, is not. Setting aside the idea of "Mexican" as a race (it's not), it's more important to recognize that  Cinco de Mayo is an American holiday. The entire holiday began in Mexican-American communities in the 1860s. This isn't some new holiday to have in America; it's been around for 150 years, primarily celebrated in Mexican-American communities in the United States. Mexicans barely celebrate it, and those that do are actually influenced by the holiday's celebration here in the United States. The holiday has expanded from its roots in California and across the nation, and that's not a bad thing; it's the same thing that Americans did for St. Patrick's Day. It's a day to celebrate the Mexican-American community, to recognize that it exist and is a vital part of the United States, and to have some fun.

lacydog: That we've done it for decades/centuries, doesn't mean that it's *right*. What's wrong for asking for a little more introspection about why we do these things? About whether we *should* do these things.


We should have introspection about these things, but we should also recognize that it's not necessarily a bad thing for a holiday created in the Mexican-American community to spread outside the Mexican-American community to other parts of the country. We are a melting pot; the Mexican-American community has taken on many aspects of other cultures, and we in turn take on some of theirs.

If the holiday involves food and alcohol, of course we should participate. Just imagine how sad it would be if our only festival was the Fourth of July; Budweiser and a hotdog grilling session just isn't enough.

Not a thing wrong with Cinco De Mayo, they barely celebrate that in Mexico anyway, it's pretty much an American holiday at this point. Dressing up like Frito Bandito---that's where the stupid comes in.

And I don't see why these things should be illegal, just because it might hurt someones feelings.  Typically I don't care either way about most people, but when I am compelled by law to be sensitive to someone elses feelings, my response is usually to go out of my way to offend them because, basically, fark their feelings.
