Fact: Cinco de Mayo is cultural appropriation
But does anyone really care? What's wrong with celebrating the best facets of other cultures? The only people who are perturbed by this are elitists and those with too much time on their hands.

Guaranteed the family who owns your local cucina or taqueria does not give a crap.

No one really cares, despite their protests. That's my guess.

Some are Hallmark holidays, some become Anheuser Bush ones.

Re: Fact: Cinco de Mayo is cultural appropriation
What is the point of having multiculturalism if you are not allowed to participate in different cultural celebrations that are not your own? What's the point of diversity then? Big whoop dee do I get to see people every day who are not my race what the fuck do I care or get from that?! Nothing that's what! I can easily watch foreign TV shows and movies downloaded off the internet if I want to see foreign looking people gabbing away in another language. I can also read up on other cultures or visit foreign countries too. I don't need to import them just to look at them while they ignore me as they gab away to each other in their mother tongue. I am increasingly seeing no benefit to this so called diversity and nothing but a bunch of negatives.

What is so great about having to be constantly lectured to by leftists about racism, micro aggressions and cultural appropriation and being given a long list of do's and don'ts on how to act around these precious POCs. They are basically teaching us whites to walk around on egg shells around them lest we offend them in any way while leftists teach POCs to have chips on their shoulders, hate and resent whites and to take offence easily to anything a white person says, does or even doesn't say or do. Ya diversity, inclusivity and multiculturalism is so much fun and beneficial for a white person NOT! I get lectured to all the time Yeah!

That toilet the rest of the world is using is cultural appropriation. That language you are speaking is cultural appropriation. You people have a sickness of the mind.

I just got a new idea for a T-shirt slogan. "Multiculturalism came to my town and all I got from it was a lousy lecture on cultural appropriation!"

Cinco de mayo was a very minor, regional observance in a small part of Mexico. Corona beer invented the celebration in America to sell more Corona beer. Learn some history for a change. Look it up.
