said: tbh many latinx do not realize latinx is not a race. particularly because in many latinx countries there’s little discussion of race to begin with.
You’re right. These are the kinds of topics you wouldn’t hear about often in latin america.
A lot of mestizx latinx (at least in my experience) have often felt uncomfortable talking about their race. I didn’t like to talk about mine for a long time because all i had to understand myself with was my ecuadorian nationality.
Which would explain a lot actually.
