"And the aggrieved Mexican-American students? ...

"... Most in the press got Ms. Nunez'€™s ad hoc commentary wrong.
It does not really matter that Cinco de Mayo is not Mexican Independence Day, or that it is rarely celebrated in Mexico. The key to her heart were the lines, "We don't deserve to get disrespected (sic) like that. We wouldn't do that on Fourth of July." Aside from the grammar, note the sense of hurt and disrespect that comes naturally to Ms. Nunez from the display of an American flag. Note especially the false moral equivalence. Ms. Nunez surely must be an American citizen. And yet she apparently feels the greater pride in the display of the Mexican flag, a symbol of a nation that her own ancestors fled; while suggesting that her own national holiday is in fact a foreign one. Or as another student Jessica Cortez put it more explicitly, "It's disrespectful to do it on Cinco de Mayo. They can be a patriot on some other day. Not that specific day."(Note the use of "they"€). -- Works and Days » Shall We Laugh or Cry at Morgan Hill?

Your Say

Funny, the Irish never complained of displaying the American flag on St. Paddy's day.

Was it Dallastown that had that screwy evolution thing a few years ago? Fortunately a Regan appointed judge sided with common sense on that one.
