PC Madness (1)

University of East Anglia takes Political Correctness to new nadir of lunacy:-

A university’s students union has banned students from getting free sombreros claiming they are “racist”.

Students were being given free sombreros by a local Tex-Mex restaurant in a bid to drum up business with a smile, before uni chiefs ordered them to stop – because it violates strict cultural appropriation rules.

The University of East Anglia student union officials even took the big floppy hats from students at the Freshers’ Fair, because non-Mexicans wearing the traditional item of headwear could be seen as offensive, according to a new initiative.

Ridiculous.

Chair of British Mexican Society quoted as saying:-

The British Mexican Society backed the Tex-Mex eatery for giving away the free hats.

Chairman Richard Maudslay said: “I would applaud any business of any nationality for doing anything to try to drum up business in a legitimate way, which this seems.

“I applaud them – it’s not a Mexican issue. It’s a much broader issue than that.

Adam agrees with student quoted as saying:-

Speaking to student newspaper The Tab, one first year who asked not to be named, said: “It’s ridiculous – it’s a comedy hat, not some sort of sacred religious dress.

“Who is going to get offended? Speedy Gonzales?”
