raresenses said: The anti-black racial prejudice (it's not racism; neither black ppl nor Latin@s have institutional power to oppress one another) Latin@s may have against black people is a consequence of European colonialism + subsequent white supremacy that was culturally, economically & politically instituted to reinforce imperialism, genocide, and slavery in the Americas. You can see this today in any Latin-American nation via media representation, colorism, etc.
Thanks for your answer!
(If anyone is confused we had a discussion about this awhile back. x )
optimusprimecake said: I like how you handled that ask. I've heard this stuff before and I hate it, it came up a lot when i was a kid it's not a good feeling when it's said. and it just sort of stays in the air and makes me feel like people forget we're people/individuals not a messed up racial caricature. I still have trouble trying to forget the stuff people try to pin on me/my race/ethnicity, so it's nice that you answered it reminding people we aren't all thug stereotypes that apparently isn't said often enough.
Thank you! It’s a bit disappointing to know that people with similar cultures are being judgmental towards each other. I hope they will one day realize they’re being unfair. What you said about them forgetting that we’re people and not racial caricatures is so true. Acting like that with each other is like the poor stealing from the poor. It will help and solve nothing. -Mark
