This is why I don’t get worked up about immigration even though it matters a lot to my father and future husband. I have been meaning to email you for a while and tell you how interesting I think it is that swirling for women in my family is the rule and not the exception.
That’s a long story I’ll have to go into another time.
Canadian men are more politically correct on the outside perhaps, but not on the inside.
A Mexican man may just up and say what a Canadian (or American or European) man is thinking.
Latinxs refer to me as dark which would make other bw what? I read through the comments on your video and blog post and noticed how quiet your Latino followers are. My basic point was there is no kinship – never was and never will be. We’ve never had that level of support and that is why they will always take any support we give for granted. I have spoken about Latinxs extensively over the past 2 weeks on FB and have commented on a few of your posts. A little background about me so you can contextualize my perspective. My mother is black and my father is a non blk Colombian.I’m engaged to a Latino man who is 1/2 Mexican and 1/2 Spainiard. I attached a photo of myself for context so you can see I understand this subject quite well from all sides. He let the cat out of the bag and any Latinx in this country who says they’ve never had a family member express similar sentiments is either lying or comes from a rare unicorn family. I was told that my fiancées mother cried when she found out her son was dating a black girl. The way he loved Maricruz in those final episodes (she was pregnant, if you remember) made me think that “one day, I will have my own papi too.” And I did. He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named and You-Know-Who made me believe in the goodness of men. It’s “I like you” or “I don’t like you.” And yes, asking a Mexican man if you look fat in that dress will always end in a Greek tragedy. When I came to Argentina, I started eating Doritos with a power hot sauce all over it and my friends were like, “Doritos with hot sauce? ” I smiled and whispered to myself, “the Mexicans.” A bottle of hot sauce will always serve as their icon. But let me tell you that it never ends bad with Mexicans — ending a relationship with them is always a good note, regardless of what you’ve been through. While everyone had the hots for the unbelievably stunning Michael Scofield (Wentworth Miller), I appreciated Sucre’s mexicanism more.
