Reminder that Cinco de Mayo isn’t actually a national Mexican holiday. it is a holiday that is only celebrated in Puebla and it commemorates Mexican armies fighting off the invasion of French armies even though the French armies outnumbered the Mexican forces. It is not “Mexican Independence Day,” that’s celebrated on September 16th. The reason it is celebrated in the United States is because beer companies wanted an excuse to sell more beer and thought it was ok to appropriate a culture for its fiesta stereotypes in order to sell their damn beer. Don’t be a fucking racist prick this Cinco de Mayo. Don’t dress up as a “Mexican” in your racist ass mustaches, sombreros, ponchos, and maracas. Understand that your celebration of this holiday isn’t to “commemorate” Mexican culture but rather you are feeding into capitalistic marketing that simply sees you as a money machine to further the wealth of corrupt beer companies.
