Yeah. If you're going to serve fish tacos at any themed event, that would be the one.

Well...considering that in the past, ICE has deported people back to 189 different countries, then I guess no food is safe lest someone get offended.

When I read the article, my first reaction was "What the...?"

There is a good chance they would be totally cool with that. The gay community doesn't seem to be quite as easily offended by such things and is pretty fond of (and good at) re-appropriating stereotypes as tongue in cheek sources of pride.

This "issue" was probably brought to light by a white kid who recently started taking social justice courses and is now on a guilt-fueled crusade to make everyone a boring zombie who speaks in entirely neutered language.

They should have a do over Sci-Fi event and just serve Gagh. It would be pretty cheap to re-do it since they already have the decorations .. the only other thing they'd have to do is go dig up some live worms to serve the crowd

If we ever do meet actual aliens, better not serve them tex/mex food. But hmm, wonder if people will be offended if tex/mex is left off of the menu for 'real' space aliens

Sometimes ya just can't win, no matter what you do.

I'm sure this has already happened.

I doubt it, they are so far gone that they believe in communism.

The whole story and it's true and it's not The Onion:
Until I read the link I couldn't possibly guess why there was a problem with serving Mexican food at a college event since just about college kid I know loves Mexican food.

But you do have to realize that schools in CA are completely out of control.

This college at UCSC has segregated housing that ought to be illegal.

So which outrage is fake? That a college club served Mexican food or the college having to apologize for serving Mexican food?

No, they won't. When the U.S. is relegated to a third rate power like France, with social programs like Scandinavia and an economy like Greece they will consider it progress.

If there is really money being set aside to pay for a " Coordinator for Diversity and Inclusion for Colleges" at UC Santa Cruz, I wonder if that money could be better spent actually educating UC students. Also, just what does a "Coordinator for Diversity and Inclusion" do? I will bet my life savings that political diversity and inclusion isn't something that this person coordinates. At UC, if it isn't left, it isn't right.

Good grief some people need to get a grip on reality and find something else to do with the time they have to waste on nonsense like this.
They could have had a fish fry, and it would be considered racist because fish is associated with Jesus of Nazareth. Many Catholics are Hispanics, and it can be argued that Joseph, Mary, and Jesus were technically illegal aliens when they migrated from Nazareth to Egypt to escape King Herod as recorded in the Gospel of Matthew.
