I want more Mexican characters in TV/film not as the help, the field worker or the gangster. Yes that is a reality but WE ARE MORE THAN THAT. we’re not all undocumented immigrants. We don’t all work in hotels or the kitchens. AND SO WHAT IF WE DO. that does not make us lower than you. We come here for a better life, not to be shit on because you think we are less than you. I want Mexicans of all different skin colors on TV/film because we are not all one nice shade of brown.
I checked Facebook yesterday after about 2 months and apparently one hs semi friend is now engaged and another hs person is now pregnant and then here I am making flan and playing gta v every night 😐
When a POC reads a lot, gets good grades or speaks with naturally with an expansive vocabulary and white people say ” haah you are so WHITE!”
What they really are saying is “I don’t associate those positive attributes with being a poc because your people don’t do any of that. Only white people do are capable of that.”
