Well said and I agree. They should be proud to be here and thankful. If they are offended too bad!


Absolutely agree...If they arn't happy, the Rio Grande is open 24/7 and its two way traffic.

On St Patricks day do you hear the Irish telling everyone what they should wear...NO...everyone wears the green, and flies both flags side by side.

This doesnt happen with the Italians, the Irish or any other ethnicity within the U.S. (that im aware of).

The fact that this has gone legal is just another sign of how near collapse the US is.

Does anyone know why the students want to wear the flag shirts during Cinco De Mayo? There's no reason other than to start some sh## - which is EXACTLY what those students had in mind. Their message is, "Screw you, wetbacks. We don't give a damn about your stupid Mexican holiday." If you think that is not what those students are trying to say with the flag shirts, then you are either very naive or very stupid.

You know what my feeling is? If you are going to hate on Hispanics that much, and if you are going to be allowed to flaunt in their face how much you hate and disrespect them on the ONE day of the year they celebrate their heritage - then you shouldn't be allowed to ever eat Mexican food. It's not your food, it's their food - it came from their country - not from America. If you hate them and their country so much, never eat a taco, burrito or enchilada again. No tortillas for you. No nachos, no margaritas, no tequila. It's not yours - it's theirs.



That was depressingly racist.

You do know that most food that you would consider mexican food actually came from America. You know things like burritos.



Tortilla-wrapped meals didn't originally come from America. Modern burritos are simply another form of the original Mexican corn tortilla-wrapped meals. They just didn't call them "burritos" back then.


Before the development of the modern burrito, the Mesoamerican peoples of Mexico used tortillas to wrap foods, with fillings of chili peppers, tomatoes, mushrooms, squash, and avocados.

Why are American schools celebrating foreign holidays? I'm not a "love it or leave it type" but it sounds like some of our youth had the right idea for once.


Well let's put it this way. Cinco De Mayo has been celebrated in this country primarily by those of Mexican decent since the 1860's following Battle of Puebla. It only seems like a new "hallmark" holiday because it wasn't until recently that the celebration crossed the cultural barrier. Much like with the Irish and Halloween. As to why should we celebrate it. The Battle of Puebla despite having happened in Mexico had significant implications for the entire Western Hemisphere. It marks the last time a colonial power invaded any nation in the Western Hemisphere. It also had some implications for the United States. Had the French been successful in conquering Mexico it would have then aided the Confederacy in breaking the Union blockade and probably giving them military aid.

So if you like the fact the American flag has 50 stars crack open a Corona and be thankful a handful of poorly armed Mexicans turned back the best Army of it's day. If you still lament that the Confederacy was beaten, well by all means continue crying yourself to sleep.

This ruling wasn't handed down on the basis of some theoretical problem. It was on the basis that some children were doing what children typically do trying to use the rules to be disruptive. After a couple of years dealing with the situation the school simply banned the shirts to avoid future problems.

Next time I see a Mexican drinking Corona on the 4th of July I'll make sure to tear him a new one.

Edit: and he better not be setting off Mexican fireworks either, that's just really pushing my limits!

Sorry but I don't follow what a Mexico-centric battle has to do with mainstream, public, American holidays. Our countries are being slammed together but we have little heritage in common. This celebration obviously has no place in a public setting. Just as La Raza has no place in a public setting or receiving taxpayer funding.

Kids that want to protest by waving the stars-n-bars are ok by me. Believe what you want.


BTW, given what our government is involved in .... and what the stars-n-bars stands for today ..... the modern US flag is the very last symbol I would embrace as a protest rally point.

It's not about pride. It's about arrogance, and trying to start some sh## with other students at the school.

So as a non hispanic American I should be forced to recognize their holiday?? What about the good ol' 1st Amendment? I could not disagree more with your logic.

idiotic, plane and simple. If the U.S. flag offends you, you're more than welcome to GET.THE.F***.OUT. and move back to Mexico. This is the U.S.A., not "Aztlan". And I'll bet you the majority of the school is Hispanic anyway, so no surprise why they'd do something like this.

Our "modern" world makes me sick to my stomach.

Shows how clever you are. Cinco de Mayo isn't a national independence day for Mexico.

You don't have to recognize it any more than you have to recognize St. Patrick's day. Just don't deliberately try to antagonize someone who is trying to celebrate their heritage.

How can one deliberately try to antagonize if they don't have to recognize?? again failed logic.

How about just wearing a plain ole' shirt to school and not chanting "USA" in front of the Hispanics on Cinco de Mayo day?

Cinco de Mayo is a Mexican holiday which celebrates the victory over French forces on May 5, 1862 at the Battle of Puebla.

The U.S. would have helped them (Monroe doctrine)...but we were embroiled in our own civil war and were in no place to help anyone, so the Mexicans were on their own.

The overwhelmed and under-armed Mexicans beat a well-fortified French incursion force. Outgunned and outmanned they repelled them against all odds.

Although it was many years later before they were able to rout the French, this battle remained as proof that they could be beaten, and was a battle cry to keep Mexico in the battle, without that first minor victory, we would be cursing frenchie-frenchman crossing our borders instead of Mexicans.

We in the U.S.A celebrate this because we are racist....we hate the French, and anyone that beats them are heros!

And being more serious, we saw the Mexicans do the same to the French that we had to do to the British a century earlier to earn and keep our independence, and we show our respect for THAT. In that regard, it is an honorable holiday for the U.S.

This should be taught that day in school as it parallels our own history...much like us, Mexico had a long history of occupation and a hard fight to shake off the imperialist European forces trying to claim and strip the wealth of the new lands for theirselves.
