Eating Tacos, Drinking Tequila Is Offensive To Mexicans…

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.

What do you do during Celebrate Bisexuality Day (September 23), National Coming Out Day (October 11), the International Transgender Day of Visibility (March 31), and the Stonewall Riots Anniversary (June 27)?

Maybe if they had talked to some actual Mexicans before sending out that moronic letter, they wouldn't look like out-of-touch, reactionary fools now.

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.

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

And these people are stupid.
