Tired of the fetishization, racism and cultural appropriation of latinx cultures. Also featured on this blog are latinx issues, and notable/famous latinxs.
- Actually educate yourself about the issues. You are perfectly capable of educating yourself, it is your own responsibility, so do so, and don’t assume that you are already an expert. Keep up with current events involving the issues and don’t be afraid to ask…
drag me for not saying “central and south america AND MEXICO” like ok chill. i think anon gets it
Do u support nafta
because latinx is a cultural heritage. it’s a collective identity for people born in central and south america AND MEXICO*. an asian person being born in germany does not make them white. it just means they hold german citizenship and live in german culture. however if this asian person were born in venezuela, this would make them latinx!! you can be white and latina. you can be black and latinx. you can be asian and latinx. anyone can be latinx!! i think thats so cool. latinx identity fucks with people’s heads because it breaks the narrow ideas of racial identity or what latinx should look like. latinx has no “look,” you can’t “look” latinx, it’s something that you just are and anyone that says you cannot identify as such based upon your looks u should laugh in their face lmao it all has to do with being born there or being raised in the culture/having it passed down to you.
*edited for the picky anon damn
I can’t speak on behalf of white latinxs, but I’ll publish right after this another anon comment that perfectly answers your question.
oh wait, or are you the same person? :S
Ok thank you
I should probably write in the FAQ that we can’t decide your race for you. We can help, but it’s up to you how you want to identify with. -e
No, not at all.
Don’t believe him. For starters, diversity in what terms?
He probably is thinking only in “racial diversity”.
