At Dartmouth, The Word ‘Fiesta’ Is Racist And White People Can’t Use It

Or even "Phiesta"

Another ridiculous politically-correct brouhaha has broken out at Dartmouth College, America’s most hopelessly and disturbingly fragile Ivy League school.

This time, the fracas is over a fundraiser for cardiac care that the Phi Delta Alpha fraternity and the Alpha Phi sorority had planned to jointly sponsor, reports Campus Reform.

Problems arose because a single student, junior Daniela Hernandez, was offended by the party’s theme of “Phiesta.”

As a result, the soiree, which was scheduled for Saturday, has been canceled by the presidents of the respective Greek organizations.

Had the party happened, it would have included a live band as well as virgin piña coladas and strawberry daiquiris. There would also have been burritos, chips and salsa, and guacamole.

The cash raised at the event would have gone to benefit cardiac treatments.

However, Hernandez’s deep offense about racial insensitivity was enough to call it off.

The self-proclaimed “Mexican-born, United-States-raised, first-generation woman of color” declared in an angry email that “there are various problematic structures and ideologies regarding a Cinco de Mayo-inspired event,” according to Campus Reform.

She decreed her distaste for “the Americanization of Cinco de Mayo and its construction as a drinking holiday in the United States, cultural appropriation and the inappropriate usage of cultural clothing, and the exploitation of groups of people and cultures for the sake of business opportunities”—and, apparently, charity opportunities.

“It was sadly unsurprising that a culturally-themed party was seen as a casual venture for such a privileged institution such as Dartmouth,” Hernandez proclaimed.

Phi Delt president Taylor Catchcart explained why the Greek organizations folded.  “We felt that the possibility of offending even one member of the Dartmouth community was not worth the potential benefits of having the fundraiser,” he said.

This incident is one more in a long of episodes that pretty clear prove that Dartmouth is slowly going insane as an institution.

So, it's OK that someone might die for lack of the treatments this fundraiser might have given them so long as one hyper-sensitive woman doesn't get her feelings hurt.

Mexican born, American raised. Does not say if she is documented or not?? Either way, because 1 person claims to be offended, everyone else has to bow to her?

Funny how the "We felt that the possibility of offending even one member of the Dartmouth community was not worth the potential benefits of having the fundraiser." BS would never be needed if the "offense" was aimed at, lets say, whites, Christians, conservatives or the like, offending theme is still ok-doky for liberals!

This mexican should grow thicker skin or take her PC whiney bitch ass back to mexico!

I just checked, and it does not say anywhere in the constitution that you have the right NOT to be offended!

Suck it up buttercup!
