    Itís all absurd. Itís part of being in a melting pot. For better or worse. If a cultural practice has deep meaning for you, then make sure it stays alive and strong for you. I donít think the Irish really care if we see every dooshbag coming out during St. Paddyís day and doing the normal crap that comes with it today. Nor do I really think the Germans care if Oktoberfest is celebrated with people wearing lederhosen. How many people freak out when a bunch of whities from Edina go out and drink margaritas on 5/5?

    When you live in a multicultural nation, youíre going to see things pop up as fads among every other group. And part of that means letting your culture and traditions to spread out the the masses. It doesnít mean itís diminishing the value to you unless you let it.

    Until it starts to cross into the territory of racism, I think people need to take a deep breath.

    Now, as a white guy, I have to at least consider I donít fully understand the other perspective. And maybe the idea of a melting pot and assimilation will be considered racist in 50 years. I have no idea.

    Agreed. If it's a (insert nationality) holiday, you're going to do what that nationality's trends are (stereotypical, most definitely). The fact is, a VAST majority of ANYONE doesn't think it's harmful or insulting. Some of the SJW's think it is, so they go off, and some bullsh* is created. Lighten up, people.
    Never really developed a taste for tequila. Kind of hard to understand how you make a drink out of something that sharp, inhospitable. Now, bourbon is easy to understand.

    Now, to be fair, when you start to go into certain stereotypes, it quickly escalates to being racist. Thereís a really fine line.

    Like, Iím not going to go out in blackface on Juneteenth. Thatís no bueno. Going to a Mexican restaurant this Friday. Very bueno.

    Well, then you just look stupid for having wasted your money on something you'll only wear once (not unlike her dress!).

    It's her choice. Who are you to dis-empower her? Think of it as a blow against the patriarchy.

    You don't need math to be an engineer. You just need to know how to read TPS reports and listen to Matt Welch podcasts.
