I also need for Spanish people to stop referring to themselves as Latinos, because they only want to associate with us when it comes to our music or whatever else they think is ‘fun and quirky’ cause the rest of the time they’re calling us illegals, making fun of our accents, customs and treating us like shit in Spain. So fuck you, no tienes ‘corazón latino’ tienes un corazón que invadió y mato a mi gente, so bye.

…Not every Latino country has a rebellion going against its government in the year 2013…Not every Latino is a drug dealer or gang leader in a prison. We’re not all Scarface or Carlito’s Way.

I believe us to be much more than comedy relief, as proved by classically trained actors such as Edward James Olmos and Benicio Del Toro.  Imagine Michelle Rodriguez with a golden lasso playing Wonder Woman or even Edgar Ramirez as Aquaman. At this point I’ll even take Sofia Vergara as She-Hulk.

Dear Hispanic Tumblr,

I absolutely loved Black Out, and from what I heard Asian Invasion is happening as well and I hope it is just as successful! So the question is what are we Hispanics going to do to break the Internet ? There are so many of us and we come in all shapes, sizes, and nationalities! LETS MAKE IT HAPPEN! LATINOS STAND UPPPPPPPP

Today’s #NoMames Moment: The Economist US Latinos’ Chili Peppers Cover

Leave it to theeconomist for reminded us all that they are clueless. For an article about the rise of U.S. Latinos, this is the cover the magazine has for one of its editions.

No worries, they have a China one, too.

As you can imagine, the cover is getting the #NoMames on Twitter this morning.

Confession: I’m getting real tired of other POC(those who are not African descent) acting like we ain’t all in the same boat. Latinos wanna act all high in mighty thinking they white and talk bad about us, like whites ain’t trying to get yall asses back to Mexico and have tougher immigration laws. *tilts head* Middle Easterns wanna act high in mighty and talk bad about blacks like the govt not programming Americans to hate Muslims and Islamic faith! Or Middle Easterners in general cause you look like you may be a Muslim or someone who practices Islamic faith. *tilts head* Honey boo boo, boo boo kitty, I hate to burst that bubble, but we all in the same boat, so please stop trying to fight for the white man scraps cause if you ain’t white you ain’t right.

A Most Imperfect Union: A Contrarian History of the United States

"It’s a comic book history of America written by two Latinos and told from the perspective of some of the country’s most humble people - workers, immigrants, soldiers, students, slaves and housewives - who are often overlooked in other textbooks."

Illustrated by Lalo Alcaraz (of the daily comic strip La Cucaracha) and author, professor and cultural historian Ilan Stavans.

I want to dedicate this award to my fellow Mexicans, the ones who live in Mexico. I pray that we can build the government that we deserve. And to the ones living in this country, who are part of the latest generation of immigrants in this country, I just pray that they can be treated with the same dignity and respect as the ones who came before and built this incredible immigrant nation.

1. to represent the many types of latinxs/hispanics, not just mexicans

2. we can all agree that latinxs/hispanics have been called mexicans

3. to destroy stereotypes on how latinxs/hispanics look

4. we are not represented in the media/social websites

5. when we are represented we are either represented as drug dealers, low income families, sometimes even fetishized for example; tumblr.com/search/latina 

anonymous asked:

But aren't most Latinos mixed though?

Yes but also many Latinos are just straight up indigenous or straight up white or straight up black or straight up any other possible race/ethnicity within Latinidad and to say “everyone is mixed” denies and erases White Supremacy, Anti Blackness, Colonialism, etc within the power structures and society.

How about white Hispanics stop pretending that they are oppressed

How about white Hispanics stop pretending that they are oppressed and stop erasing the fact that they are the perpetrators of oppression in their own country. How about they stop pretending that they are  getting persecuted in High office 100,000$ job when chicano juan can’t even get a driver’s licence. How about ya’ll acknowledge that you owned slaves, went by a color system, and destroyed entre civilization and come here and have the audacity to pretend Mestizos, Afro-Latinos, Chicano and ya’ll share the same plight.
