On Sunday, The Daily Show's Jessica Williams donned a novelty sombrero and festive pink dress and came to Dallas in search of an authentic Cinco de Mayo fiesta. What she found instead was a few thousand disappointingly sober people gathered downtown to march for immigration rights.

Instead of drunken debauchery, she heard stories of immigrant mistreatment of immigrants. Her questions ("What's the craziest place you've ever boinked somebody?") were met with blank stares. She was disappointed to discover that the beer line was "actually for something called 'VOTAR.'"

"So 5,000 people chose to waste their Cinco de Mayo by marching for more humane immigration rights?" she asks. "Nuh uh. Not on my watch."

So, she takes some of the marchers to a bar where they find a more traditional Cinco de Mayo celebration filled with white people guzzling tequila and downing taquitos. It's wonderful.

I don't know which is worse, the reporter basically being a jerk, or the foreign nationals here without authorization (i.e. illegally) saying that the US needs to change its immigration laws.

What's worse Paul is the drunken ill-informed white people in the bar at the end of the bit.

@Mervis_Earl  

 The whole segment was pretty bad.

Yep, it is very scary when white people get funky or drunk ...

But then again they just may be the products of a DISD education ...


Personally, why a group would celebrate a relatively minor battle is beyond me, though in actuality Cinco de Mayo festivities were probably promoted by Tex - Mex restaurants to stimulate sales as it falls roughly between St. Patrick's Day and Memorial Day.


Even Canada has Cinco de Mayo celebrations.

@Mervis_EarlWould you please point out the humor, irony, exaggeration or ridicule?  I seem to be missing it.


just in case ...
