Why I Can’t Wish You A Happy Cinco De Mayo

…it would be cultural appropriation, for I am cis gendered, white, male privileged scum.

It’s too bad I can’t wish you a happy Cinco de Mayo, because up until I realized it was going to be cultural appropriation, I was going to invite you all over to BQB for chips, salsa, guacamole, nachos, burritos and margaritas.

But I’m not Mexican, so I can’t offer you any such delicious treats.

As discussed in a previous post, I am part-Scandanavian, so I can enjoy a plate of hot, salted codfish balls, the same kind that were enjoyed by my Viking ancestors.

You can’t have any though unless you are of Viking descent.

So, tell you what.  Let’s just throw a party called, “The Fifth of May” and everyone bring food that is appropriate for their own personal culture and please do not share it with anyone outside of your culture.

Thank you.
