Just in time for Cinco de Mayo the United States Postal Service (USPS) introduced a new series of stamps earlier this month celebrating Latino culture, specifically “foods and flavors [that] have impacted American cuisine for generations.”
The “Delicoso” stamps series was created by artist John Parra and depicts six images of iconic foods that are staples in many Latino households and include: flan, tamales, sanocho, empanadas ceviche and chile rellenos.
The White House’s own chile relleno (stuff pepper) also known as President Donald J. Trump who in fact controls the USPS and the Postmaster General through appointment, must of let this slip past him. Trump apparently was very busy finding some money for the wall and deporting the undocumented to get in the way of honoring Latinos – something he doesn’t do
The stamps were given a beautiful debut at the National Hispanic Cultural Center in New Mexico at the end of March before becoming available for purchase last week. The president was not in attendance.
We assume President Trump will
celebrate insult Latinos on Cinco de Mayo by ordering the over-priced, hard to digest Trump Tower Grill taco bowl like he did last year when he was a mere presidential candidate. His press office has not indicated if he will sign an executive order mandating the taco bowl be included in the “Delicioso” stamp series.
The stamps were described by Robert Cintron, vice president at USPS at the dedication ceremony as “the Postal Service’s way of saying these Delicioso dishes epitomize the best of America, and will do so forever.”
