democracy. Um I don't know if you guys want to get to Cinco de Mayo and have a larger conversation about how we celebrated as um a holiday when it really doesn't belong to us and nobody in Mexico, I mean I'm not mexican myself, I do have friends who I love um who are mexicans and um from from what I know, which again I still have a lot to learn, Nobody's wearing sombreros and moustache is and you know, things like that and so it's stereotypical um when we use stereotypes to quote unquote honor a culture as part of a holiday, that's when we are appropriating it. I love that. Just want that to sit for a minute. It's like using using stereotypes, right? Yeah. Um Using stereotypes of others that are like outside of our culture too, because I'm I'm imagining that there would be people who'd be like, well you know July four and the stereotypes of you know, white americans, drinking beer on, you know, like that's if that's not what we're talking about, we're talking about something that is not yours. Um and taking something that I don't know, applying these attributes to it. Um, when I think of like sink into my own what I've been taught it. Um, tacos and margaritas. Um, uh, kenyatta, like I'm trying to think of like images that come to mind the, oh, I don't have the word for it, but the shawl uh Sorry? Uh, do you know what I'm talking about? The multicolored overlay. Yes, I'm gonna the panto pancho. Yeah, I have on a poncho right there. I think of the word, it's not the one that we're talking about is not multicolor. But anyway, yes, the poncho, the sombreros all on cinco de mayo, the Moroccan us, right? Like chili, like lights in like little chilly um shapes. I'm trying to think. Yeah, corona beer. Right? You can ask many people what, what's the origin of Cinco de Mayo? And they're like, yeah, drink up. Right. Right. And it's Mexico. It's Mexico. Yeah. In a country that is so hurtful to that, to people from that country. Like, I don't know, there's a part of me that goes, how dare you like, how dare we celebrate that at all. Like, but it's even been happening for years with our native americans. Native american females are not sexy in short skirts, you know, with little stripes or whatever. That's and that's how they were portrayed. Yes. All the time. And when, when you think about a woman of, of aboriginal descent, that's what you think about because those are the image.
