“I don’t think I have rebelled against Latina culture. I have rebelled against those who try to make me warm tortillas for my brothers when they can warm them for themselves, I have rebelled against a patriarchal religion. I rebel against small mindedness in all ways and in every situation but those things are not an intrinsic part of Latina culture and I will fight tooth and nail against anyone who tries to make me feel like I’m less Xicana for not embracing the small-mindedness.” - Alice Bag, interview on 1/23/12

Also, when did African Americans hold a convention to decide what black is? And why did they not mention this to the rest of the atlas?…

…You don’t have to tell me what black sounds like. White people have spent centuries trying to fit me into stereotypes. But Black on Black oppression just doesn’t come in my size
