By this same logic, guess burritos, tacos, fajitas and refried beans can not be eaten by persons of non-Mexican heritage, as that is appropriating another's cultural heritage.

The NCAA always found the Aztecs non-objectionable as a nickname, as they weren't a Native USA tribe just like the Irish.

You don't know what logic means do you?

Very.

Not really, they are as extinct as the Huns. Their culture disappeared and they just melted into the larger population we now call Mexican. Just like how the Huns are just Germans now.

Except that the Huns didn't get surrounded, beaten and massacred before the scattered survivors melted into the surrounding population. They broke up, parts were defeated, other parts defeated, absorbed some new tribes, broke up, etc. So a much larger percentage of Atilla's group left descendants than the Aztecs.

I hope the President doesn't approve it.
