Sliding Carp: I was riding a ski lift with an Irishman one March, and I asked him specifically about this. I asked if St. Patrick's day was considered a genuine religious holiday in Ireland, and did they think we were jerks for what we did to it. He looked at me like I had 3 eyes and said, "fark no, we get paralytic."


So it's not really a holiday over there?  Just kind of business as usual?

Misconduc: White person celebrates Cinco de Mayo = racist


Then there's going to be a metric shiat ton of racists, along with a lot of non-white people, on 6th Street in Austin on May 5th.

Anything a white person does can and will be considered racist, because they're often stupid enough to be convinced that it's racist.
White people care too much. Tolerance is interpreted as weakness and stuff like this happens and will continue to happen until white people grow a collective backbone and start to actually like themselves and their history and culture. But that won't happen.

orbister: Rincewind53: I mean, Gallic pride is a thing, the French certainly think that they're different than the Spanish. And the Spanish are still fighting about whether Castille and Aragon should have merged...

Different nationalities, yes. But the idea that the Spanish, the Catalans, the French, the Italians, the Germans, the Dutch, the Belgians and so on are different races is just absurd. Perhaps its because we have more national identities here that we don't need racial allegiances in the same way.



Think more along the lines of Germany vs Turkey  or England vs Morocco, and include cultural differences as well as simple physical appearance.

As a Mexican eating Del Taco, drinking Guinness, and watching the NBA finals...I'm getting a kick from this thread.

No you should not spell fiesta with a ph. If people want to get dressed up drunk let them. They should just be more discrete about it.

CygnusDarius: orbister: Bonzo_1116: That's a much more complicated question than you might think, see the CygnusDarius post up thread.

It's confusing fir us Europeans, because Americans are so very, very much more sensitive about race than we are. For example, this whole idea of a "Hispanic" race seems bizarre here: we've got a whole Iberian peninsula stuffed with darker-skinned people speaking Spanish and Portuguese, and it would never, ever occur to anyone here that Spanish and French people might be different races.

Must be a historical thing, I suppose. Perhaps a desire to maintain some sort of personal heritage in a melting pot. Still hard to get our heads around.

I've never really understood the whole 'race' thing in humans as a concept; for example, all dogs are Canis familiaris, yet a St. Bernard is completely different to a Chihuahua, but both still share the same name.

I see humans equally in that regard. The whole ethnic/cultural thing to me reeks of Eugenics, mixed in with Xenophobia. To be fair, I wish we could just dump all this and the the global Ramones/Daft Punk/KISS/Beastie Boys/P-Funk party started.


It would be nice, but too many people make money and win elections based on the notion of being different.

lacydog: 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.

Rincewind53: Shostie: Also, I'm Irish and nominally Catholic. You don't see me b*tching about St. Patrick's Day.

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

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.


It means be like the other cultures, quit your whining, and grow the fark up, pandejo.

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.


That would also include the gays.

This is what Cinco de Mayo means around my area :

Drunk and high Mexicans riding around in barely driveable lowriders while blasting horrible "music" and showing gang signs. Every year there is at least one fight or shooting. Every year there is multiple accidents and major traffic.

Animatronik: I think the fact that they had to cancel this party is evidence of an intolerant climate at Dartmouth. I already told my kid not to bother applying to Columbia, now we can add Dartmouth to the list. And of course the schools rep for drunkenness and debauchery and lack of respect for women has actually caused applications to drop.

/ of course my kid can go wherever, it's a question of what I'll pay for.


You should've crossed them off a while ago.   http://online.wsj.com/news/articles/SB10001424052702303987004579479501 134392562 - Fark does not like WSJ.  Google "Oppressed by the Ivy League".
And of course, Claremont College:

And University of Michigan is just crazy.

Look, every single liberal arts department is like this.  They're CRAZY.  End of story.

/Thank gods U of Michigan had a separate campus for engineering.  That way we didn't have to deal with BAMN.
//And then of course, because of mismatch theory, all of the elite kids were white and Asian.  Which was really funny.  "We are for diversity to the point where a black kid with a 2.5 is equal to a white kid with a 3.5" -> "shiat.  The black kids all dropped out because they were at the bottom of the class.  I wonder why".

Good God we are the masters of politically incorrect shows. Televisa and TV Azteca (the two biggest TV networks in Mexico) create the most god-awful stupid, offensive, sexist, xenophobic, programs out there, and they get huge ratings (maybe because they're the only two channels in non-cable TV).

The rancher had a point. The system is just a racist as it ever was. Instead of slavery, we just throw young black men in prison.

If you asked one of those young men that is serving a life sentence for some dumb ass three-strikes rule, he'd probably agree to work for free and live with his family rather than work for $.25 an hour and sleep in an over crowded (for profit) prison.

It was a stupid analogy. He's an inarticulate moron. But he's right on some level. Slavery was/is completely wrong, but the system we have still screws over young black men. If only the media jumped on that aspect of his argument instead is seizing the opportunity to take a shot at republicans. Maybe, just maybe, they have more to profit on the controversy than the truth.

Is it racist to copy Mexicans wearing clothes from the culture their ancestors destroyed? I missed the memo.

Well, considering that pretty much no Mexicans wear serapes anymore except mostly poor people in indigenous communities, kinda.

You know what most Mexicans wear? Jeans and T-shirts.


I do see a lot of Mexicans (ethnic wise at least) around SoCal wearing cowboy and and boots, and they do seem to have a thing for mustaches.  There are "vaquero" shops in a lot of the neighborhoods, but really it's all just "western wear" with a slightly ethnic spin to it.  They look like brown Texans.
