Why Do White People Love Cinco de Mayo So Much?

cinco-de-mayoEvery year Cinco de Mayo rolls around and every year white people for some reason celebrate like it’s free J Crew and Starbucks day. I’m pretty sure if you ask 10 people what Cinco de Mayo is, 9 out of 10 would have no clue (the short abbreviated version is it’s a celebration of Mexican heritage).

Now I have no problem with everyone going out for it. If I wasn’t traveling yesterday, there would be a good chance that I got Mexican food and had a few margaritas myself. But everyone on Facebook, Twitter, etc act like they can’t drink tequila any other day of the year. The sombreros are busted out and Taco Bell is all of a sudden considered real Mexican food. It’s a mind boggling phenomena.

I really think Mexican people use it as a day to sit back and watch us be morons. Maybe it’s where I go out, but I don’t see a lot of them celebrating anything. The whole thing is just strange. Wouldn’t the equivalent be something like people in Mexico drinking whiskey and eating cheeseburgers on July 4th? Maybe?

This shit just happens every year and I know I can’t be the only one noticing this. But on the bright side, I found a picture proving it’s not just white people being idiots:

  1. That’s humans for you. Any excuse to get drunk.

    St.Patrick’s Day is another great example. Promoted and marketed to death. And yet in Scotland the population at large doesn’t celebrate St.Andrews Day our own national day.
