One response to “Cinco de Mayo in DC 2022”

  1. I hate to say it but the hypocrisy seems much. Do you all really think that young Americans, most of them who have no understanding what the (minor) significance of the day is, using it as an excuse to get drunk on Mexican beers and tequila drinks, employ “mariachis” as promotional items, and celebrate the simpleton caricature and appropriation of a moron’s perception of Mexican culture is significantly different than those idiot women who wore the sombreros and moustaches out? You are all the same to us.
