    Does not appear to be racist although Mecha says "por la raza" which is inherently racist.

    Cinco de Mayo in the US is about a pointless excuse for drinking.

    I suppose us Scottish-Irish-Appalachian Americans should distribute some of the same type of educational material. As we know, God invented whisky to prevent the Irish from taking over the world.

    All that talk about "kicking out the white people" sounds racist to me. It's not that they said it, it's that if it were a white man saying the same type of thing about Mexicans, they'd be all over him.

    I'm not sure why they can't embrace it the way the Irish embraced our version of St Patrick's Day.

    Many people don't realize that the Titanic carried cargo as well as passengers. It's also unknown that after arriving at New York, the next port of call would have been Tampico, Mexico, to offload the country's annual supply of Heilmann's Mayonnaise.

    The arrival date was to have been May 5th. The failure of the Titanic to arrive with its precious cargo led to a national day of mourning, now known as Sinko de Mayo.

    Just a little historical footnote, there...

    :D, Art

    Hmmmm.... I suppose a banner with the words Viva La France! in big blue, white and red letters would be "inappropriate", non?

    Speaking as a white man who grew up in NYC, I think I can tell when people want to woop my ass for racial reasons.

    The "kicking out the white people" is a huge tipoff.

    It would be like hearing some white guy on TV talk about "kicking out all the niggers" or "kill those damn kikes." Why does everyone grow deaf when the target of the persecution is of european descent? It cant be rascism! They only hate the crackers! If Mecha/Aztlan/la raza isnt racist then neither is the Aryan Nation, the KKK or any of those other neo-nazi type orgs.

    Where the hell is the ACLU on this one?

    Don't even think about comparing St. Patrick's day with something as meger as "Cinco De Mayo".

    Defeating the French in a battle, whoopee, who couldn't.

    And Bush apparently thinks it's just a great idea to let millions of these anti-white racists and seperatists into the US and live off of my and everyone else's dime, all the while cursing us for mistreating them so badly.

    ______

    Incluso no piense de comparar día del St. Patrick con algo como meger como "Cinco De Mayo". Derrotando a los franceses en una batalla, whoopee, que no podría. Y Bush piensa al parecer que es justo una gran idea dejó a millones de estos racistas y seperatists contra-blancos en Los Estados Unidos y vivir apagado de mi y de cada uno moneda de diez centavos otra, todo el rato que nos maldice para mistreating los tan gravemente.

    They had a little rally and everything. I wanted to stick around and cause trouble, but I just didn't feel like exerting myself today.

    you know, after reading that, I agree with them. There are more important things going on on May 5 than a bunch of white people getting drunk on crappy mexican beer: http://www.bovineunite.com/main.htm

    Well, to be fair, the Irish tend to celbrate St Patrick's Day in much the same way as non-Irish Americans.

    They do now, but it wasn't always that way. There wasn't a parade or any formal activities. People would get up and go to church and then a quiet day at home. The partying stuff started less than 20 years ago.

    Uh, most of the known world at one point. Short guy, stuck his arm inside his coat a lot. Read about him. ;)

    I've just read that document. It's no more racist than "Remember the Alamo."

    "The partying stuff started less than 20 years ago."

    More like 30 or 35 IIRC, but then I was partying and probably don't remember correctly.

    I’ve never understood why the native peoples of central Mexico would think they have a territorial claim over the southwestern United States, as they never held control over this region or its peoples. Anything else is just a dispute between European conquerors.
