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?

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.


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 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.

CygnusDarius: Honestly, the use of the word, of the Celebration of Cinco de Mayo in the US, is not very offensive to me.

To be honest, if the Chicano community want to use it as a way to honor their Mexican roots, all the more to them. If the rest of the Americans wants to use it as a drinking day, it may be a little annoying... If I didn't knew the historic basis on the date: Mexican troops defeated Mexican troops led by Frenchmen, but ultimately began to lose the war, but we won because of sudden assistance by the US (who they helped us because of the Monroe Doctrine, not that the American Government ever liked Mexico), and Russia was threatening war against the French.

And also... Cultural Apropriation? Ma'am, I'm mestizo, and I'm sure you are too. We are the living embodiment of cultural apropriation. Honestly, being Mexican is the most conflicting bullshiat ever, because we're not European enough, and we definitely are not Natives. We're something in between that, quite frankly, no one likes, not even ourselves (read: The Labyrinth of Solitude, by Octavio Paz).


Looking things up for my comments lead me to a rather fascinating article on the history of Cinco de Mayo as a holiday, from its roots in San Francisco as part of the burgeoning Mexican nationalist movement. It seems like the real creator was the newspaper  La Voz de Méjico, which first pushed for a celebration of the victory of the Battle of Puebla the year after it occurred, on May 5, 1863. The newspaper was part of a real push to get recognition and support for the embattled Mexican army, which was (even at the time) still fighting against the French. So Cinco de Mayo emerged as a real PR holiday, as a way to unite the Mexican-American community to support the homefront by sending money, arms, and other kinds of support.

The fascinating article is here (pdf), lots of things I did not know about. Enjoy!

I've said it a million times, and it seems that I need to say it again:

RACIAL INSENSITIVITY != RACISM.

Racism - The belief that all members of each race possess characteristics or abilities specific to that race, especially so as to distinguish it as inferior or superior to another race or races.  When organized into large groups of people, it can lead to mass murder, genocide.

Insensitivity - The inability to respond to affective changes in your interpersonal environment.  When organized into large groups of people, it can lead to stupidity, assholeishness.

i read the entire thread and didn't see anyone call the woman in TFA racist or any other culture racist. I did see some jokes about it, like the poster who said maybe Americans should be offended that most Mexicans wear jeans and tees. But that was sarcasm and not to be taken seriously. No-one thinks that is racist, or that it's racist to complain about holidays. They just think it's asinine. About the only real remarks I saw about racism were people being shocked that white people are always seen as racist. That doesn't assume the accusers are racist themselves. You are dumb.

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.
