The banner across the bottom of the screen proclaimed Mexican Heritage Celebration.
So, a sombrero-wearing white guy pretending at being drunk was the way MSNBC decided to celebrate Cinco de Mayo? And no one wants to scream rraaaaaacism at that?
And can we just dispense that this is a celebration of Mexicn heritage? If you were to ask someone born and raised in Mexico City how he celebrates Cinco de Mayo, he would look at you almost as if you were speaking German.
Mexicans do not celebrate any such holiday as Cinco de Mayo. It is an American-created holiday, not a Mexican one. In fact, it had its genesis in our own civil war. It had nothing whatever to do with Mexico.

Maybe we could call it Cinco de Kawanza?
Sink-o de Mayo...better than Kwaanzaa because it’s a lot shorter.
Someday soon, people are going to get fed up with liberals and their hypersensitivity and their perpetually being offended all the time.
It’s Cinco de Drinko!
No Cerveza for you!
Left-wingers can engage in obviously racist behavior because they know “their intentions are good.”
Not exactly NO relation to Mexico. It celebrates the Battle of Puebla. But since Mexico LOST that war; why the Battle was important to the U.S., however, was that it demonstrated that an alliance of the British, Spanish and French STILL couldn’t project their force into the New World.
Only conservatives can stereotype.
It’s not racist if they do it.
They have dispensation.
It’s a holiday created so more marguaritas can be sold and consumed. And don’t even think about going out to eat Mexican food in Texas tonight. Today is my wife’s birthday. We’ll wait a few days before we celebrate.
I don’t believe I had heard about the “holiday” before the early 90s
Or stop by for a drink in the Gaslamp quarter in Downtown San Diego.
It’s been celebrated in the US since 1863. It has been a regional holiday, not national.
But to make it meaningful, we can think of it as "Humiliation of the French Army Day."
I guess there’s no reason to celebrate some Irish guy in March either, but people like to celebrate.
I don’t care if they want to celebrate it but I’ll be damned if I’m going to take down my American flag or tiptoe around to avoid offending them. They can kiss my gringo gluteus maximus.
