It’s Official: At Dartmouth, The Word ‘Fiesta’ Is Racist And White People Can’t Use It
Daily Caller ^ | April 26, 2014 | Eric Owens

Posted on 04/28/2014 1:23:12 PM PDT by QT3.14

Another ridiculous politically-correct brouhaha has broken out at Dartmouth College, America’s most hopelessly and disturbingly fragile Ivy League school.

This time, the fracas is over a fundraiser for cardiac care that the Phi Delta Alpha fraternity and the Alpha Phi sorority had planned to jointly sponsor, reports Campus Reform.

Problems arose because a single student, junior Daniela Hernandez, was offended by the party’s theme of “Phiesta.”

I think the city of San Antonio Texas might have a disagreement with Dartmouth. In that every April there’s a very large event named fiesta.

Even a Southwestern Anglo can’t use the word “fiesta”, or organize one?
Can non-Irish celebrate St. Patrick’s Day?
Can non-Greeks and non-Orthodox attend a Greek festival?
Can non-Serbs and non-Orthodox attend a Serbian festival?
Can non-Slavs and non-Orthodox attend a Russian Orthodox Church festival?

PHOOEY!!!!

If I lived anywhere near Dartmouth I’d be walking around with a bullhorn and yelling “Fee-esta!!” Just as loud as it would go. Once I was asked to stop I’d then post up signs saying “FIESTA!!!! (written by a white person)”. The stupidity out there is becoming absolutely crippling. Common sense is dead, I know i put flowers on its grave on Thomas Paine’s birthday. God help us all.

It just takes one for a Ivy-Covered North Korea to cave. I'm waiting for a white to complain to Dartmouth they are offended the complainer is speaking English.

Daniela Hernandez

Daniela Hernández

Year: 2015
Hometown: San Antonio, TX and Mexico City, MX
High School: Luther Burbank High School
Major/Minor: Hispanic Studies and Latin-American, Latino, and Caribbean Studies
Extracurricular activities at Dartmouth: Ballet Folklórico de Dartmouth, First Year Student Enrichment Program, Spanish Department Drill Instructor, Sexual Health Peer Advisor (Sexperts), Spanish Department Tutor

"I applied to Dartmouth Bound without a specific end goal in mind. I knew that Dartmouth was a great school but I did not know much more than what was listed on the brochures that were regularly mailed to my home. As a high school junior with little exposure to "the college life", I felt that visiting campus and committing myself to a program such as Dartmouth Bound would help demystify some of the myths and romanticized ideas that I had created of what a college experience should look like.  As I reflect on my Dartmouth Bound experience and realize how positive and effortless it truly was, I begin to wonder what great error it would have been to not have even applied. I would like to encourage students of all identifications and backgrounds to apply. Dartmouth is a diverse place that fosters community and opportunities. Give yourself the chance to preview the potential that you can achieve when becoming an undergraduate at Dartmouth, by giving Dartmouth Bound a chance!"

This subject has been around for awhile.

“Everyone is in favor of free speech. Hardly a day passes
without its being extolled, but some people's idea of it is
that they are free to say what they like, but if anyone
else says anything back, that is an outrage.”

― Winston Churchill

Hey there little Daniella.
You are a temporary resident of the school you are attending.
Just because you are offended doesn’t mean the whole system has to accommodate your little grievances.

The President of this school should tell this little goof the above and that if she doesn’t like it, go back to Mexico. The interstates run both ways.
But they don’t want to offend.

"'We felt that the possibility of offending even one member of the Dartmouth community was not worth the potential benefits of having the fundraiser,' he said."

It doesn't seem to have occurred to him that community members who would have enjoyed and benefitted from the fiesta might have been offended by its cancellation.
