First of all let’s discuss Cultural Appropriation in regard to celebrating Cinco de Mayo this weekend. (It’s this Sunday).
Have a margarita or your favorite cerveza. Enjoy some delicious tamales or enchiladas. Give your money to your favorite Mexican owned restaurant/bar.
Unless you’re actually Mexican (and so drunk you’re willing to do so) please don’t wander around with a sombrero on your head or some weird “Frito Bandito” fake mustache and shaking your maracas and drunkenly screaming “Andale! Arriba!” It’s tacky and disrespectful to Mexican people.
Also: you look like an idiot.
You don’t see Mexican people dressing up like hillbillies in overalls with corncob pipes drinking Budweiser and eating saltines and mayo while chasing their buxom daughters around the desk in the Oval Office do you?
No. You don’t.
Anyway, please feel free to enjoy all the good things about Mexico (in a respectful way) this weekend and you even have some LGBTQ options for celebrating “the date of the Mexican army’s 1862 victory over France at the Battle of Puebla during the Franco-Mexican War”.
