And every created 'tradition' includes stereotyping ALL Hispanic and Latin American cultures into simple cartoonish caricatures.
I wonder how "honored" all Hispanics would feel with such a thing

(for those that missed the thread in the NSZ, this comparison was tried with African Americans)
The unlikelihood of those two events happening should tell you all you need to know about the validity of the comparison.
