University To Tex-Mex Restaurant: Handing Out Sombreros Is Racist

Sombreros are racist. Or so says University of East Anglia in Norwich, England.

According to the National Review, Pedro's Tex-Mex Cantina thought that handing out sombreros would be a fun way to advertise their business on campus. But according to school officials, they were horribly, horribly wrong.

Pedro's was told to cease handing out the hats immediately because they were a "cultural appropriations" that violated the school's policy that states: “Discriminatory or stereotypical language or imagery aimed towards any group or individual based on characteristics will not be permitted as part of our advertising."

Chris Jarvis, officer of Campaigns and Democracy, defended the school's actions by saying “At the SU we want all members feel safe and accepted, so at all events we try to ensure that there is no behavior, language or imagery which could be considered racist, sexist, homophobic, transphobic or ableist."

Perhaps Pedro's should stop serving stereotypical "cultural appropriations" like chips and salsa as well.
