New Rule…

No American patriotism allowed on Cinco de Mayo.  It might get in the way of Mexicans celebrating their defeat of the French (an unimpressive accomplishment, really, since everyone beats the French).

Interestingly enough, Cinco de Mayo isn’t even celebrated in Mexico.

    I have to admit that I’m curious if the students in question wear American flag t-shirts and bandannas on other days as well, or if this was specifically intended as a “counter” to Mexican students’ pride in Cinco de Mayo. I’m not sure it would or should make any difference, but I do know I’d have less sympathy for the wronged students if they were intentionally being dicks.

    It’s a pity Flag Day and Independence Day are not school days, so we could find out if the school would act similarly toward students sporting Mexican flags t-shirts and bandannas on those days.

    Hey, don’t knock the French. They beat the Vietnamese – America and China didn’t.

  4. I agree that we should not knock the French. However, it is inaccurate to say that they beat the Vietnamese. Very inaccurate.

    Even weirder, I believe the Mexicans lost the very same city back to the French within the next two years.
