anti mexican racism

I’m just going to say this much…

Whenever I have heard racist people complain about their “jobs” being “stolen”, whether online or in person, it’s usually referring to Mexicans or Latinxs they think are Mexican because they’re stupid and think every Latinx from Central or South America is Mexican.

Anti Latinx racism is fucking strong worldwide and I want to say “white people” in that above paragraph BUT sadly it refers to anyone that isn’t Latinx.. non Latinx POC I’m looking right at you, too. You are NOT exempt from that bullshit. You’re not. I hear you saying “build the wall”- sometimes more than fucking white people 👀 You’re just as gross as a Nazi or Klan member so while you’re punching them, you can punch your own damn face as well you nasty hypocrites. In the US, Latinxs are treated like trash.

Confession

A lot of Mexican people think they are white. Back a couple months ago I was dating this Mexican guy. I was right next to him and his other Mexican friend. The other Mexican friend and EX boyfriend where talking, when he (the friend) suddenly said “I’m glad I’m not black.” And my Ex went “Me too.” Make a long story short, I broke up with him publicly and he got laughed at. That was wrong, but I don’t feel bad at all about it. And I have two Latina friends who I have recently found out THEY HAVE BLACK DADS. I’ve known them for years(they are not sisters) but I have recently found out that they have black dads. Both of their dads ran out on their Mexican moms, so they consider themselves to be Mexican more than anything black. Here’s the kicker- I have the same complexion as them, and many people think I am half black and half Mexican. They see me as black. The only difference between all us is the different hair types. I’ve come to notice through all of these Mexican people- is that a lot of them consider themselves to be white when they look fully Mexican or black. They thrive off thinking they are white. Then when a Mexican gets killed- (The ex boyfriend said this to me) “Why isn’t there a black lives matter for Mexican people?!” And I simply said, “Maybe because you think you’re white.” His face. Priceless.

Hey Donald Trump, this Mexican-American woman has some words you should read 

With all the recent news, it was easy to forget Donald Trump’s anti-Mexican racism. But 28-year-old Mexican-American Adriana Almanza didn’t — and instead, penned a powerful open letter to the billionaire on Facebook. The full, mega-viral post disproves Trump in the most inspiring way.

Donald Trump says he’s going to be "the greatest representative of the Christians they’ve had in a long time.” Do you think he means this Christianity:

  • “When a stranger sojourns with you in your land, you shall not do him wrong. You shall treat the stranger who sojourns with you as the native among you, and you shall love him as yourself.”
  • “Whoever oppresses the poor shows contempt for their Maker, but whoever is kind to the needy honors God.“
  • “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.”
  • “Keep your lives free from the love of money.”
  • “No one can serve two masters. Either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and Money.“
  • “Clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience.”
  • “Give to the one who begs from you, and do not refuse the one who would borrow from you.”

Or will it be some hateful version of Christianity that demonizes the poor and spouts racist nonsense?

To all my fellow Mexicans

Y'all be safe today. I just heard my neighbor cheer about Trump winning and saying that now they’re going to deport “all the wetbacks”

Remember how Trump said his followers were just “passionate” when they beat a Mexican homeless man? Remember how he called us rapists/thieves?

His followers are going to think their anti Mexican racism and their horrible xenophobia is justified

Y'all need to stay safe, y'all need to stay alert, stick in groups, don’t go out alone
