Everybody gets to be butthurt if they really work at it. Tacos? tequila? Sombreros?


Northwestern University continued to stumble over diversity issues this week as Mexican students voiced disagreement with a campuswide letter that advised students not to celebrate Cinco de Mayo by engaging in racially-offensive activities, such as eating tacos and drinking tequila.

The letter was sent to students via e-mail, and published in The Daily Northwestern last week. Leaders of Alianza, a Latino student group, and the Associated Student Government called on students to remember that Cinco de Mayo commemorates Mexico’s victory over France in the Battle of Puebla. It is not a day to throw a sombrero-themed party, they said.

“Some of our peers choose to throw ‘Mexican-themed’ parties that are culturally insensitive, offensive, and detrimental to the Northwestern community,” said the letter, which noted that this was a problem year after year. “Drinking tequila shots, eating tacos, and wearing sombreros do not commemorate Mexican culture; on the contrary, that offends, marginalizes, and isolates many of our friends, classmates, and community members, and casts our entire community in poor light.”


The two Alianza presidents who signed the letter are not Mexican, according to The Daily Northwestern.

Their recommendations were quite a shock to Northwestern students who actually came from Mexico. Several of them fired back recently.

“I’d like to say that I proudly embrace my tacos, tequila and sombreros,” wrote Ruben Antonio Marcos Bours, a Northwestern student, in a statement. “To me, they are a key part of my childhood, growing up in Monterrey, Mexico.”

Another student who grew up in Mexico called the letter “over the top.”

“The people who wrote it had a good intention, but their perspective is different,” said Pablo Garcia Romero, a Northwestern student, in a statement.

Alianza’s letter was no more popular among non-Latino students.

“I’ll probably still go to Chipotle and drink Corona tomorrow, but I do that like everyday is it still offensive?” asked one online commenter.

Realizing that the letter was poorly received, representatives for Alianza and ASG confirmed that they are drafting a new letter that will better explain their position on Cinco de Mayo sensitivity.

“We’re not trying to pass judgement on the role tequila or tacos have in the Mexican culture,” said ASG president Ani Ajith. “It comes down to context and intent.

seriously. I bet that tequila companies, mexican restaurants and Corona all make a fucking killing on May 5th. I bet that's their favorite day of the year. These guys just want a reason to be offended.

We wear stupid green t shirts on St Patty's Day, you dont see Irishmen getting all worked up. They are joined in on the drinking fest.

OMG ...I'd eat Tacos outside their meeting place. Here's the thing...we do the whole freedom of expression here. Especially on a college campus. If you can't handle that...you might want to think about heading some place else.

The more people tell me not to do something, the more I want to do it. It's getting old being told that everything is offensive to somebody. I will eat meat, wear leather boots, eat tacos, drink tequila, wipe my ass with two ply, and I will eat pussy during lesbian week.

The people offended should go back to Mexico, as there are no Gringos in Mexico, and the streets are paved with Queso.

This is maybe the dumbest part:

"called on students to remember that Cinco de Mayo commemorates Mexico’s victory over France in the Battle of Puebla. It is not a day to throw a sombrero-themed party, they said."

From what I understand the popularity of Cinco de Mayo in the US started because a Mexican American group at a college in California or Arizona basically wanted a day to celebrate Mexican culture (eating tacos, listening to Mexican music, etc.) and sort of just use the Battle of Puebla date as a convenient date marker.
They're really under the impression that the US is going to commemorate a battle in Mexico against France, and that that's the spirit of the day in the US? Mexico doesn't even celebrate it country-wide from what I hear.

Yes, the celebration of Cinco de Mayo has gone mainstream because of the booze companies.

Um, I might be missing something but if you want to go to this extent, isn't it kind of racist to say that tacos and tequilla are a direct reflection of the Mexican people? Their heritage in a nutshell?

Maybe these deep thinkers can have a "Day of the Brain-Dead" celebration.

No. Mexican isn't a race. It's no more racist than someone saying that French people smell or are annoying (and they do and are).

I agree the whole PC thing is a load of bullshit. I will eat what I want, say what I want to say and do what I want to do, when I want to do it. If someone doesn't like any of that, I don't give a rats ass and they can take their political correctness and shove it where the sun doesn't shine.

#1, I don't celebrate them.

#2, it's nobodys business what I'm doing, as long as it's not against the law or hurting someone.

I don't use the N word or retard, say G-dammit or J. Christ. That's good enough for me. It's up to me to make that choice. I don't get on anyone else for using them, though. And I don't need someone telling me what else I shouldn't be saying or eating. Political correct speech is bullshit.

How ironic, coming from a liberal.

The way of the liberal is to sit in their ivory towers and decide what is and isn't offensive to different races or ethnic groups. They issue proclamations telling the unwashed masses the error of their ways, and how they must obey from then forward.

They next write texts which in the future other liberals will consult when struggling over the same issues.
