    No thank you, I already celebrate Latino Days while living in my low income St. George apartments! It’s Latino Day all day & all night around here. Loud cars, messy yards, screaming kids, ahhhhhhhh yippee for Latinos!

    How inclusive is “Latino” day? When is Caucasian day? When is Asian day? See where I’m going with this? Why not have human race day everyone bring a favorite dish to share? Or a favorite craft or game. Better yet how about “be nice day” or “be a good neighbor day?”

      I’m not sure you “see where I’m going with this.” How inclusive is Columbus Day or St. Patrick’s Day or Oktoberfest? By your reasoning, any celebration with any hint of ethnicity should be avoided. You just want everyday to be “white bread.”
