Feliz Cinco de Mayo! (In an hour)
It's not Mexican Independence Day, but the anniversary of the Battle of Puebla, and is now a general celebration of Mexican history and culture. In honor of my Mexican brethren and sistren, I give you a picture of Cesar Chavez
An American of Mexican descent, he was an activist for civil rights, particularly for farm workers. (I don't agree with everything the UFW did regarding illegal immigrants during Chavez's leadership, but the dude stuck by his convictions.)
also, a piñata
When I DJed at the college station at Oregon State, we had a Cinco de Mayo party. We had a piñata, but nothing to hit it with, so we hit it with our fists. We were THAT hardcore. Then we watched some hip hop music videos and "El Mariachi" while eating Taco Bell. Best party ever.
