Tequila shots, tacos, sombreros offend Mexican students

Call Americans' celebration of Cinco de Mayo 'racially offensive'

(BizPacReview) A Northwestern University Mexican student group finds “eating tacos and drinking tequila” to celebrate Cinco de Mayo racially offensive, and wants to see the practice come to an end.

In a letter to the university’s paper, the Latin student group Alianza called for a “respectful” celebration to commemorate “the Battles of Puebla, in which a vastly outnumbered, under-equipped Mexican army twice defeated the well-armed, well-trained French army, which had not lost a battle in over fifty years,” according to The Daily Caller.
