regon Student Leader: Eating Burritos on Cinco de Mayo is “Cultural Appropriation”
Perla Alvarez, the Associated Students of the University of Oregon’s (ASUO) “Multicultural Advocate,” believes that eating a burrito on Cinco de Mayo, as well as other things such as eating guacamole, is “cultural appropriation” of Mexican culture.

She begins her letter to Oregon’s student newspaper by writing, “It’s “Cinco de Mayo!” Yay for some of you who want to party! However, it sucks for those of us who do not celebrate this day and have to witness you appropriating our culture.”

Despite the fact that most colleges in the United States push for more diversity and understanding of cultures, Ms. Alvarez believes that people celebrating Mexican culture and food is a bad thing.

“Cultural appropriation,” she explains, “is when a group of people use aspects of other cultures; it consists a [sic] dominant group taking from a historically oppressed or a minority group of people.”

Of course this ingrate ignores her living in a first world country (at least it used to be), speaking english, and using freedom of speech is also 'cultural appropriation'.

Funny how this ingrate comes from a country/culture who is hostile to immigration or diversity.

Why is this hypocrite lecturing people at a 'Historically White' university?
