Mmm…

A lot of people are misunderstanding one of my posts about being Negra/black and it’s partially my fault for having written it so poorly, but these self hating Latinos think I’m agreeing with them and like the whole point was to say that
1. I’m not always seen as black outside the Latino community which means my experiences aren’t always the same as someone who isn’t mixed. Anti blackness is so embedded in Europe that it makes a huge difference in how I’m treated.
2. I am not a black American so there are experiences/issues that I do not share, and even cultural things that I don’t necessarily understand.

So I don’t understand how these self hating blacktinos think I’m agreeing with them. I’m 25, I’m past that stage, please leave me alone. When I see you liking that post and then I see on your blog that you think you’re better than black Americans or you don’t wanna be seen as black, you got it all wrong and I hate you.
