UNNECESSARY LATINO VS BLACK
IDK what the fuck is in New York City water but today alone I’ve witnessed & participated in altercations where a Black person tells a Latinx to go back to their country / learn English / not to speak Spanish around them . Shit really fucking PISSES ME OFF . I can not tell you how many rallies I have gone to where there were countless amounts of Latinos supporting #BlackLivesMatter , including myself ! As someone who is not from America and who’s first & primary language is NOT English , that shit is fuckin hurtful to say . & all 3 altercations today started on the bus or train over trivial ass shit like accidental bumping or something. Why does it need to go from 0-100 every fuckin time !? We are suppose to be on the same fuckin side ! We are all suppose to be fighting for respect ! Black people do not want to be treated wrong / killed because of their skin color and Latinx do not want to be treated wrong / killed because of their immigrant status or language barrier . Shit is baffling to me as someone who identifies as
AFRO-LATINA , as someone who has family of all nationalities & ethnicities.
Point is - I’m over here cursing white people out for not respecting black people and then black people turn right around and disrespect Latinx’s and I’m left feeling stupid & resentful AF.
What bothers me more is that all too often , Caucasian Americans say the SAME ass hurtful and tasteless immigrant & “learn English” comments ! Yall acting just like these mothafuckas smh.
( SIDENOTE: all 3 altercations had a dark complexion Latinx involved, not a white Latinx . It’s hot in NYC & people are annoyed with the MTA so tempers are already high . none of them spoke English because we LIVE in a predominantly Spanish speaking neighborhood that only recently saw an influx of non-Spanish speaking African Americans move in … Gentrification )
