latino leaders

aw u dont like 76? can i ask why? :0

I don’t like the All American Hero trope that Blizz went with for Morrison. especially with the way they pit Morrison (a white, blonde, blue eyed man) against Reyes (a brown Latino man) as the leaders of Overwatch and Blackwatch.

but while canon 76 is Unfortunate, fanon 76 is what really drives me crazy

D.Va is a young woman and an accomplished soldier who doesn’t need a baby sitter. Lucio is a young man and a revolutionary who doesn’t need to be treated like someone’s little boy. Efi is a child prodigy and a tech genius, and while she’s still young she doesn’t need 76 to step in and be her father.

76 being everyone’s dad has become this annoying meme with a lot of racist connotations, and I really don’t want to see that extended to Efi

Today We Honor Cesar Chavez

‘Senator Robert F. Kennedy described Cesar Chavez as “one of the heroic figures of our time. A true American hero, Cesar was a civil rights, Latino and farm labor leader; a genuinely religious and spiritual figure; a community organizer and social entrepreneur; a champion of militant nonviolent social change; and a crusader for the environment and consumer rights.’

it’s sad to see that this is the mentality of some of the people of our generation. don’t you get that white people DON’T NEED CLUBS THAT WILL CREATE MORE “WHITE LEADERS”

This whole country is ran by white leaders. This group was created to help minorities learn how to become an important part of today’s society so it isn’t purely “white’s” that get to decide what’s best for everyone in their community/ the nation.

This upset me because it really has me wondering how long it’s going to take for white, privileged people to realize they have everything in their favor. They aren’t the group in need of anything and should be helping this nation to be more equal with every ethnicity instead of wanting to take all these small things away from the minorities.
