[OP-ED]: How to laugh off the foolishness of Cinco de Mayo

 05/04/2017 - 08:25
Every May there is an increase in the ridiculousness of the costumes and advertising tie-ins for non-Hispanics to revel in -- and, perversely, it seems to coincide with how poorly actual Mexicans are treated in this country. File
English

Last year at this time, Donald Trump loomed over a taco bowl at Trump Tower and tweeted out the message: “Happy #CincoDeMayo! The best taco bowls are made in Trump Tower Grill. I love Hispanics!”

[OP-ED]: Is the American Dream killing us?

One theory attributes the spike in “deaths of despair” to growing income inequality. There would be fewer suicides, drug overdoses and alcohol-related deaths if incomes were distributed more equally, the argument goes. People take out their frustrations and anger by resorting to self-destructive behavior.

It isn’t often that economics raises the most profound questions of human existence, but recent work of economists Anne Case and Angus Deaton (husband and wife, both of Princeton University) comes close. You may recall that a few years ago, Case and Deaton reported the startling finding that the death rates of non-Hispanic middle-aged whites had gotten worse — they were dying younger.
