I grew up in Texas. Mexicans and Mexican food were part and parcel of my childhood. We have had Mexican food on May 5 for as long as I can remember. Heck, the elderly Mexican lady that lived next door to us made sopapillas as an after schhol treat for us on Cinco de Mayo.
It is my turn to host Bunko tonight. We always have dinner before. I am making Mexican food. It is delicious, I really know how to prepare it and it IS Cinco de Mayo. I got a call from one of the ladies in the group last night. She actually wanted me to change the theme (Patio Fiesta) and the food. She felt it was a little racist on my part!
I have been called racist because I disagree with BO's spending, racist because I do not support illigal immigration, racist because I believe radical Islam is a problem..but this takes the cake!
That's silly. I love good Mexican food. How is that racist? So does this mean that you can't have Chinese food on Chinese New Year?
I think you should embrace the racist badge that has been doled out to you and serve up a full on Fiesta. Maybe get some Mariachi music to go along (seriously, who doesn't love a Mariachi Band?).
No offense Special, but your friend seems a bit uptight. Maybe she should get started on that Tuscan wine a bit early so she can try to relax.
