    The history of Cinco de Mayo is “SHUT THE FUCK UP”

    So Mojo, I like your channel, but these aren't really myths. Myths are stories that ancient people told to explain the world they lived in. So tales of Zeus and Hercules and Thor - those are myths. The things you are talking about in this video would be better described as instances of misinformation. Not to nitpick, but I do believe that language should be used responsibly, and you guys should be setting an example.

    Myth #6: Cinco de Mayo is a Mexican holiday. It's actually an American holiday.

  • Bruno Martinez
    Bruno Martinez Год назад

    That was a very well done, historically accurate, culturally sensitive setting the record straight about Cinco de Mayo. Truth of Cinco de Mayo is that it's greatest champions in the U.S. are and have been Beer Distilleries. The beginning of May is smack in the middle of a stretch of a no man's land of holidays to celebrate, therefore use a holiday no one knows anything about and start pumping the print ads, billboards, radio and television commercials, then watch people use it as an excuse to get wasted in a holiday desert. I have heard, though it is probably just a rumor, that a U.S. Beer Distillery executive was vacationing in Guadalajara around Cinco de Mayo, there was a decent sized festival going on and he asked around, boom a new beer holiday! Again fantastic piece.

      Another fun fact, this battle prevented French Army to take Puebla that was finally taken a year later. This gave an impact in the American Civil War because if Mexico was took in 1862, France would be able to help the Confederates in the American Civil War bringing troops from Mexico, at the time they took Mexico City the war at the tide of turning things for the Union.

    Straight up it's just an excuse more Americans to throw a Mexican themed party much like Saint Patrick's Day. Neither holiday does the average person seem to have any clue what it's really about it but it sells so commercial business embrace it.

    For Cinco de Mayo I went to a food truck festival. I ate tacos filled with Korean cogi barbecue beef, Kim che, curried chicken on rice, crepes, fried potatoes and waffles covered in Nutella. It was a night of indulgence and diversity, just like any other Friday night in America.
