Skip to comments.UC Davis students protest insensitive party (Cinco de Drinko)

A Mexican-themed drinking party promoted by employees of the student-run Coffee House at UC Davis has roiled the campus, threatening to ignite racial tensions even as the university ramps up admission for minorities and international students.
Clad in red T-shirts and chanting slogans, about 100 UC Davis students participated Friday in a sit-in at the Coffee House, urging a boycott of the cafeteria. The protest came after some Coffee House employees promoted an off-campus party at a local park Saturday that they dubbed Cinco de Drinko, a name university leaders said had strong connotations of racism.
The Facebook event page for Cinco de Drinko included a picture of four male students, wearing sombreros, trying to hop a chain-link fence while two female students in Border Patrol attire smile.
UC Davis officials and student leaders quickly condemned the planned party, which has since been canceled. During an impromptu meeting at the Coffee House, protesters told Chancellor Linda P.B. Katehi they felt unsafe on campus.
What kind of message are you trying to send? asked Edwin Roque, a fourth-year transfer student.
Katehi vowed to use education to prevent similar controversies in the future, suggesting that instructional requirements could be changed to mandate a diversity course.

“I can be more offended than you!”
instructional requirements could be changed to mandate a diversity course.
Yep, there it is.
Just lighten up, everybody.
Good lord, if you’re “offended” by that
Then get lost
Chanting and wearing RED teeshirts...
Probably left over from the last Che holiday...
Oh, right, May 1st.
I thought Cinco De Mayo suppose to be Mexican liberation from the French also great time to party
LOL, are you just figuring this out now?
I'm part Irish.
They should hold the party anyway. Just don't tell anyone where it's at. Drink a cerveza and poke the fascists in the eye.
actually enforcing our immigration laws and detaining illegals - cinco de clinko
our marxist president celebrating holidays with soviet and communist ornaments and trimmings - cinco de pinko
anything celebrating joe biden - cinco de dinko
All this talk about Cinco de Mayo makes me hungry for Mexican. I hope I still have time to hit Taco Bell.
Liberals are a real pain in the @$$. They can be out there destroying Christmas but they start pissin’ and moanin’ when someone does something like this and pokes fun at one of their Marxist college professor created holidays like Cinco de Kwanzaa.
I usually celebrate Cinco de Zachary Taylor Day. Other times, Cinco de Chapultepec Day.
Piss on the messicans.
Notice how “racially insensitive” was not put in quotation marks
I guess “Journ O List” Dick Chang decided to editorialize his “reporting”
“protesters told Chancellor Linda P.B. Katehi they felt unsafe on campus.”
Ah, yes. Anytime someone does something a lib doesn’t like, they claim it’s an act that somehow promotes violence, hatred, and intimidation. Worst of all, it may even lead to *cat-juggling*.
“What kind of message are you trying to send? asked Edwin Roque, a fourth-year transfer student.”
Um, that they’re enjoying any opportunity to get drunk, and don’t have a stick up their corn holes about it?
“Katehi vowed to use education to prevent similar controversies in the future, suggesting that instructional requirements could be changed to mandate a diversity course.”
Translation: You meat-eating heteronormatives are all scum!
BTW, Cinco de Drinko has been around for at least the better part of a decade. Maybe not the classiest event bunch of college students could throw, but hardly a reason to mandate “diversity training” (shudder) or whine that you don’t feel safe on campus.
“Our country is lost”
It was lost when advertisers stopped saying “Christmas” but couldn’t put “Cinco de Mayo” into enough commercials...
Look how fast those spineless UC Davis faculty moved to react to this. Further proof that California is hopeless as long as the liberals run it into the ground.
