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".

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.

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.)

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?

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.

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.

So, Anthony Bourdain's show tonight is about Mexico, perhaps because Cinco de Mayo is tomorrow.  He's going to be eating and drinking his way through Mexico, while dragging out all their dirty laundry (gap between the rich and poor, corrupt politicians, illegal immigration to the US, etc..).  The trailers feature bits of this conversation as well as Mexicans in traditional folk costumes and I won't be surprised to see sombreros.  Why is it not "cultural insensitivity" when he does it?

Is there any Mexican people ANYWHERE upset by this, or is it all manufactured? Going on class/field type trips with my daughter when she was in HS circa 2007 we would pass Mexican guys standing on the corners selling fruit (SoCal) and her Mexican classmates would all say shiat about that being a cousin or some other family member and in general crack jokes. This current generation of kids needs to grow up quick n teach the adults not to get their panties in a knot over every damn thing.

If you are one of those people, then let's not pretend like there's any feeling of shame or remorse when you get called out on being a racist piece of shiat. You're clearly proud of your ignorance and will likely infect a new generation with your xenophobic bullshiat. Yay.

I just picked two random subjects that I guess I was familiar with but you are right, the protestors are the type that are probably majoring in underwater basket weaving, leisure studies or 12th century feminism.  I suppose it is good then that they are protesting at the coffee house since that is where they will be spending much of their careers.

This current generation of kids needs to grow up quick n teach the adults not to get their panties in a knot over every damn thing.


Not saying this is a huge, important issue, but claiming "they do it, we can do it to" is just lazy logic. I see people do this all the time. "My friend/spouse/brother-in-law makes fun of Hispanics and he's a Hispanic, so it's not wrong if I do it!" And it wouldn't be. If they weren't assholes about it. If you think having a vaguely Hispanic friend makes it okay to call all of Latin America spics or Mexicans, you're part of the problem, not part of the solution. Which is fine, just don't act like you're doing something noble or endearing.

Kalashinator: trappedspirit: RTOGUY: 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.

And car bombs.  Don't forget being "Irish" is about car bombs and blowing people up.

There's even a drink named after that!


There's a drink called blowing people up? Who knew?

Chabash: Ima4nic8or: K3rmy: 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".

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.

What makes you think the protesters are majoring in something that requires either of those subjects?


Well, I don't think that UCD offers courses in lawn maintenance, so obviously the Messicans that are there are studying for their space program.

Why do I suspect the only people who have a problem with this are white people. How many mexicans do you think saw this and said to themselves "ow my feelings" probably not many of them.

this hyper sensitivity to racism both real and imagined needs to stop. It makes it far harder to address actual problems when some clown cries racist every time someone points out peoples differences, or has a laugh at them.

Actually, the charge appears to be led by a woman with the surname Villegas:

Michelle Villegas
Chicana/o Studies & Psychology Major
UC Davis Alumni 2012


"We, as concerned students of UC Davis and community members, would like to declare our utter offense and disgust with an off campus event organized by UC Davis students.

It has been brought to our attention that a "Cinco de Drinko Sloshball" Facebook event page was created by UC Davis Coffee House (CoHo) student employees earlier this week. The event is a party intended to have attendees dress in "festive" attire, meaning stereotypical "Mexican" dress (a sombrero and sarape, fake mustache, etc.). In addition, attendees are given an image that demonstrates the attire they should wear, which includes a border patrol officer costume. These images are hurtful to our community and only serve to create a hostile campus climate by sending a message of disregard and disrespect for the Chican@/Latin@ and Undocumented/Immigrant campus community.

Cinco de Mayo is a holiday that marks and celebrates the victory over French rule that was momentous for the state of Puebla, Mexico. This holiday is often manipulated by individuals who use inaccurate images of Mexican culture and affiliate it strongly with alcoholic consumption, despite the fact that there is no real correlation between the two. Many student organizations around the nation, including UC Davis's own Delta Chi Fraternity, host these types of events and encourage the student community to engage in these racist actions. Many justify it by saying that these are "harmless" events and that attendees are "just trying to have fun." However, when the communities that are mocked are communities that struggle on a daily basis to have to prove their worth at academic institutions, they are indeed harmful. They invisibilize and make a joke of the lives of students that are historically underrepresented and underserved at the University. The fact that the student employees, who represent the face of the University, planned this event, are perpetuating this ignorance with no sensitivity towards the Chican@/Latin@ and undocumented/immigrant community on our campus, is a reflection of the lack of respect for different cultures and student experiences.

Lastly, it is ironic that this event is scheduled to take place on the same day as La Gran Tardeada (the culmination of La Raza Cultural Days), which in turn marginalizes the Chican@/Latin@ community on campus even further. It is also an indication of where the campuswide community stands when it comes to cultural competency and understanding and upholding our UC Davis Principles of Community. La Raza Cultural Days and other cultural celebrations during the year are often denied adequate support. Regretful events, such as this "party," tell us that we have not come as far as we'd like to claim with cultural competency and need to support these programs every opportunity possible. This "Cinco de Drinko Sloshball" event invalidates years of work from multiple organizations, student centers, departments and students on a day that ironically is meant to celebrate and unite the community.

Students planning and participating in this event should be trained to understand why these events are hurtful, offensive, and backward. Despite the years of progress that have been made by strides in the Chican@/Latin@ community at UC Davis, these racist actions remind us that there is still much work to be done. We urge UC Davis and the CoHo to hold its student employees accountable for their actions and take appropriate and effective steps forward to ensure that these types of events will not take place again.

Sincerely,
Concerned Students and Community Members of UC Davis

This doesn't really make much sense. You're not connecting your ideas. How is this not harmless, and how does this "mocking", if it is indeed such (which you have explained how), connect with the supposed struggles of an undefined community?

They invisibilize and make a joke of the lives of students

But professor, earlier in the article you alluded that this event is bad because of the stereotype involved. Stereotypes are general and broad. But now you say that this makes a joke of the "lives" of students, which indicates that they are being made fun of on a deeply personal level. Which one is it?

You missed an important part at the end which I think says a lot...she's butt hurt that it's on the same day as the culmination of La Raza Cutural Days, La Gran Tardeada.

I would also point out that the American Cinco de Mayo party culure is not about equating excessive drinking with Mexican culture....I'm not aware of it being about how much Mexicans drink.  Moreso, its about equating excessive drinking with any celebration.  This one happens to be related to an event in Mexico.

But I would also agree that the students could've chosen a better picture for the event.  I can understand being offended if you're, in a sense, "summed up" as being an illegal immigrant.  There are lots of ways to portray the culture and focusing on an inflammatory political issue is not the most gracious way to do it.
 
2014-05-04 02:49:55 PM
For those who thought that the following statement I made earlier

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

was a slam at our current commander-in-chief, allow me to state that was not the intent.

I have always considered Obama an idealist.  I do think he wants to the best for all but was (and is still) ill prepared for the task at hand.  The slogan "Yes We Can" was a wonderful campaign slogan.  I feel that the "But We Won't" is the silent disclaimer to that statement due to the fact that most American's are unwilling to make any REAL effort much less make any sort of sacrifice that will not, in their opinion, ultimately benefit them.

There was a joke online some time ago.

Obama:  Good news all, everyone now has a home.
Crowd (waving signs enthusiastically):  Yay!!
Obama:  Good news all, everyone now has health care
Crowd: Yay!!
Obama:  Good news all, everyone now has food and a car
Crowd:  Yay!!
Obama:  Good news all, everyone now has a job
Crowd: (walking away and dropping signs) Who needs a job?

In short, the campaign slogan is poignant in its simplicity and honesty.  We CAN do it.  We just won't.  The most powerful nation in the world and we biatch and whine when we have to get off the couch to change the channel because we misplaced the remote control.

Just like Nancy Reagan was correct when she said "Just Say No".  The final decision is ours.  We just make excuses of why we will not - rarely pointing at ourselves.

RTOGUY: 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.


Cultural Insensitivity: No Irish Need Apply.

My English and Viking ancestors did their best to eliminate the Irish problem.  Obviously, we didn't try hard enough or got sidetracked by trying to take over France.  Sorry, our bad.

In much of South Texas, Cinco de Mayo is as much a drinking holiday as St. Patrick's Day is--at least when it's on a weekend. All the Mexicans I know got jobs and want to keep them.

durty: In all my 41 years in and around SoCal, growing up less than 15 miles from the Mexican border with mostly Mexican friends and girlfriends, I have never met or heard of any Mexican that has even the slightest problem with Cinco de Mayo..This story is manufactured horseshiat.


It's not the holiday that pisses Latinos off, it's the sombrero-wearing pinche gabachos who think that all of us came here illegally.

Messican restaurant owners like the holiday because they can make shiatloads of dinero overcharging white people for cheap beer and eats.

And like magic all the drunk and bitter conservatives blaming white liberals for this suddenly eat crow and disappear once they see it isn't a white liberal leading this outrage. Now if only they just stopped posting completely to go get a real education and realized what horrible people they are.

Cinco de Drinko is properly celebrated on December 5, the date on which Prohibition was repealed in the United States.

Two words, en espanol- La Raza



With the amount of money the American tax payers put into that groups branches year after year I would think we'd own the trademark by now.
