Don't Fire Until You See The Whites of Their Eyes!

Lots of people in the United States have British - specifically, English - heritage. But somehow it has never been seen as necessary to "tone down" the American Revolution to avoid alienating them, and the English themselves don't seem particularly alienated from the United States or vice versa.

So why would anyone think it is necessary or advisable to "tone down" the Alamo to avoid offending Hispanics? Does somebody think Hispanics are hypersensitive types? I've never had that impression.
