    College cancels Cinco de Mayo after student complains that decorations and foods used in festivities disrespect Latino and Mexican cultures

    A state university in Massachusetts made the decision to cancel their Cinco de Mayo celebration after one student complained about the annual festivities.
    Heat Street reports that a student at Framingham State University filed a report with the Bias Incident Response Team at the school on May 5 when members of the administration decided to celebrate Cinco de Mayo by putting up decorations and offering students a burrito bar at lunch.
    'I feel as though whenever an event like this is taking place we go straight to stereotypes and it is EXTREMELY offensive!' wrote the student.
    'If that were not enough on Cinco de Mayo the dining services team decides than in honor of a glorious victory against french colonizers in Mexico we should decorate the dinning [sic]commons. '
    An hour later, the decorations were removed from the dining hall.

    Over it: A student complained about the decorations being used and the food being served (burrito bar above), writing it was 'EXTREMELY offensive!'
    Among the decorations that the student took issue with were 'blow up chili peppers, pancho decorations, and donkey piñatas.'
    The complaint also noted that there were other 'overtly racist and clearly ignorant decorations.'

    The individual said he was equally angered by a similar celebration that had taken place weeks earlier when the Student Union Activities Board held a themed birthday party for the school's mascot Sam the Ram.
    To promote that event a 'massive flyer had Sam in a sumbrero [sic] with Feliz Cumpleanos on it,' said the student.
    There was also a burrito bar and even salsa lessons for the birthday festivities according to the complaint.
    That burrito bar was brought in again for Cinco de Mayo, and even got a plug on social media.
    The dining hall promoted the lunch special on their Instagram page earlier in the day, writing: 'Happy #CincoDeMayo! We have a Burrito Bar at the grill station in the Dining Commons! Get a beef burrito made just for you! Get beans or no beans; add cheese, onions, salsa, sour cream, peppers, and tomatoes!'
    The post went on to let students know they could get more information about how to make their burrito healthy at the dining hall.

    Demand: The student asked that the school 'consult with students, faculty and staff who identify as members of a culture prior to the [cultural] celebrations' (Sean Huddleston, who serves as chief diversity officer at the school, above)
    Sean Huddleston, who serves as chief diversity officer, passed along the student's complaint after his office received it on May 5 but did not tell the dining hall to take down any decorations.
    That decision was made by Sodexo, the contractor who handles the food at the school, and they went a step further by offering to speak with students and start a dialogue about how to 'commemorate events such as this while being respectful to the particular ethnicity.'
    Sam the Ram's birthday visual has also been changed from a sombrero to a yellow balloon.
    Hudelston and his group later talked with the male student, who said he was speaking on behalf of Latinos at the college.
    In a report released after their meeting, Hudelston told Sodexo: 'In the future, what [he] would like most (and on behalf of other Latino students) is for Sodexo and others who would like to honor and celebrate the culture (Mexican in this case) to consult with students, faculty and staff who identify as members of that culture prior to the celebrations.

    Liberal champion of the people, (radio sports talk host) Mike Missanelli was funny yesterday. He LOVES The Sopranos, Godfather, etc... but was saying yesterday how he's offended by pizza boxes. I think it was about the mustache on the Italian guy on the box. I couldn't talk it for very long, but I found that funny.

    He's also in the "if you disagree with me, you're wrong (or worse)" mindset, so no surprise here.

    Not that this is related, but being offended article reminded me. Dumb.

    Isn't the point of it to celebrate and acknowledge their culture with them?
