Seriously?

I just received an invite to my university's "Latino Graduation Ceremony".

First of all, why me? Did this invite go out to every student, or is my one-quarter Portuguese DNA somehow on record somewhere? (And since when does Portuguese heritage have anything to do with Latin America, unless you're from Brazil, which makes you BRAZILIAN, not Portuguese, but I digress...)

Second and most importantly, why is this even necessary? What happened to just plain "Graduation"? I think having a diverse student body is awesome, but in my opinion ceremonies like this one change "diversity" into "divisiveness".

Hey, does this make you A Wise Latina, just like our newest supreme court judge? *grins, ducks, and runs!*

I dunno about the Latina part, but I'll demur regarding "wise". I ain't there yet. ;)
