Hmm. . .people making fun of a current hot topic.  Though done in jest, at least it addresses it.  It is not getting swept under the rug.  Other people whine because it is insensitive.

Put on your big boy bragas and stop acting like a little puto. Rather than have a sit in at the coffee shop and chant slogans you can form study groups and impromptu think tanks to come with possible ideas to possible move towards a resolution.

But of course this won't happen.  Obama was partially correct with the "Yes We Can" slogan.  He just did not state the second part "But We Won't".

True, they usually wear trucker caps.

Wouldn't it be "culturally insensitive"?

UC Davis Chancellor Linda P.B. Katehi told the newspaper she believed that adding a mandatory diversity course could prevent future controversies like this one.

UC Davis Chancellor Linda P.B. Katehi should be prepared for everyone to show up to that course wearing a sombrero and poncho...

I think the comparison to St.Patrick's day is very apt. Why is it okay for everyone to get shiat faced to be "Irish" for the day but poking fun at Mexicans hopping a fence is out of bounds? Which is a more hurtful stereotype when you consider that the U.S does have a serious problem of Mexicans hopping the border illegally? Now that said anybody on a university campus should have known this wouldn't go over well.

Or they could, you know, go study whatever there are supposedly there to study.  I know its a novel idea but hear me out on this one.  Sitting in the coffee shop shouting slogans in protest of an insignificant issue isn't going to help any of them pass that upcoming calculus or chemistry test they are worried about.

Yeah? So what, don't got to the party and stay home and biatch about it on the internet. I'll bet they had fun.

Cinco De Mayo was invented in California, so we can do whatever the hell we want with it.

Lazy Mexicans, stealing America's ideas.  Get your own damn holidays.

(Yes I know latinos came up with it, but they were employed by Americans in California at the time.  It's called "work for hire", look it up.)

I think the main issue is, we're not still getting boats of Irish showing up. The Irish have had time to get over it and have fun with it.

Of course I could be wrong.

The university should prohibit any celebrations on May Fifth to promote cultural awareness.
 
2014-05-04 11:29:14 AM  
People are getting way too sensitive.  First off, Cinco de Mayo isn't even a Mexican holiday.  Mutating its name into drinko de Mayo therefore cannot be racially insensitive to Mexicans.  I would also note that Mexican is not a race but nationality. Lasty, if you can't make fun of criminals who break into our country who can you make fun of?

And Irish people are no longer actively discriminated against in the US. Today's Latinos don't have it as bad as blacks, but yeah. You pull this crap, you're kicking down. Aim your shots at those above you.

Too many cabrons. I'm sure in 1900 we had tons of micks complaining that St Patty's day isn't what they're all ab--- wait, they led the parades? Huh,

There are plenty of Irish folks that have a problem with it but I think it has more to do with Mexicans being a larger and more vocal group. Then again what the hell do I know? Growing up in Canada I didn't even meet a Mexican until I was 27. Do you know how easy it is to make tortillas at home? Holy shiat that was a magical moment and totally changed my life...

Yeah so...cultural sensitivity and whatever.

That shows how lazy the Irish are. Probably drunk, too, the shamrock-wearers. "Aye, I could be building a boat, but the room is spinning and I need me a wee bit more tipple."

I laughed at the joke. My half-Mexican wife at it. She did point out that they should have included a pregnant Mexican woman jumping the fence. Anchor babies and all that

They were prompted by a Facebook page created to promote the party. It showed a picture of four male students wearing sombreros while trying to hop a chain-link fence as two female students stand nearby smiling and wearing Border Patrol uniforms, the newspaper said.

/Ah..i see. So actually sneaking into the United States illegally and demanding full rights is ok, but if someone makes fun of our fail efforts to stop it, you scream racism and get all butt hurt. I wonder if the same people throwing a fit over this have 0 problems with criminals who come in the USA without documentation, then ask for the farm handed to them. I doubt it. You have to love selective butt hurt.

The Sacramento Bee reported that about 100 students enacted a sit-in at the Coffee House, wearing red shirts and chanting slogans.

   The "you" here being 100 students at one university.  Have some Preparation-H, dude; you could use the cooling relief of menthol.
