Real Talk

So I do say a lot of shit about Non-Mexicans celebrating Cinco de Mayo, but all in seriousness…

1) Cinco de Mayo is basically just a US thing. Hardly any Mexicans celebrate it…

2) It is when, in 1862, Mexican troops were able to fight of Napolean III army in Puebla. People living in Puebla are some of the few Mexicans that actually celebrate.

3) No mustaches, Sombreros, AND “ponchos” while talking in an accent  and holding a form of alcohol. If you do have all those items and the accent, you are dessing up in a distasteful and outdated stereotype (known as the Bandito)…and that get up just looks ridiculous on most people tbh.

4) If you are going to drink, please don’t drink until you black out before selecting a designated driver or planned out some form of safe transportation (getting hurt is never any fun).

5) Go to authentic restaurants. You are helping the economy and you’ll get bomb af food (I mean Chipotle is good, but it’s not AS good as the real stuff).

6) Don’t dress up/ use Day of the Dead styled-anything. These two holidays have nothing in common (Day of the Dead, or dia de los muertos is a holiday used to honor our relatives that passed away. Cinco de Mayo is when we fought and won in a battle against  French troops in Puebla).

So go on out there, be safe, and don’t make a fool of yourself today.

The Racist Celebration Known as Drinko de Mayo/ Cinco de Drinko

 The videos on this post are pretty self-explanatory, there is a lot of racism going on during Cinco de Mayo here in the USA. Now to all Mexican and Mexican Americans this is not something new.

 However there are a lot of Non-Mexicans that refuse to believe this and continue to celebrate this day in the worst ways possible. Cinco de Drinko/Drinko de mayo is not cute, it’s not a day to get drunk on Tequila, and it’s not dress like a Mexican day. It’s just racist and gross and it just needs to stop.

Our two admins and a couple of other people have been leading the charge on our Cinco de Mayo “festivities” today - which for the most part have been fairly innocuous (lunch, bingo, and a photo booth that does have some fairly WTF props to be honest) and they do this in addition to their actual job functions. 

People are now being snotty that drinks won’t be ready until 4:30 and I’m just so grossed out by the entitlement. If you MUST have a drink in hand at 4pm, maybe offer to help set up or clean up. But of course that suggestion isn’t met with much excitement. 

Gringos Gone Wild: ‘Cinco de Drinko’ Edition

“@ThinkMexican the people behind me are embracing our culture… Happy Cinco de Mayo? Ps. They’re drunk as heck,” Twitter user @2015_enrique posted Saturday.

He told us he was having dinner with his sister who just gotten off work at the Midnight Diner in Charlotte, North Carolina when the drunks showed up.

“These guys came in and were visibly drunk. They seemed to have enjoyed themselves. But forgotten that a battle was fought where people lost their lives,” he said.

Can you imagine how many more drunk gringos in fake sombreros were out last night “celebrating” Cinco de Mayo?
