Happy Cinco de Mayo!

Hear, hear! Francesca Ramsey also produced a new Decoded video that discusses how the “celebration” of this holiday, as you mentioned some college students are, is racist. She also got a latinx woman to explain the Battle of Puebla, and that Cinco de Mayo a holiday that isn’t really celebrated outside of Puebla, where the Battle of Puebla took place. To most of Mexico, Cinco de Mayo is just another day (I took it as similar to our Flag Day — noted on the calendar, but not celebrated). But like you said, celebrate with someone who does as a part of their culture, or at least support a locally owned restaurant if you really want your guac fix.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
