zoot riot

Latinx Fentons headcanon + Memory Blank au

I forget who first mentioned the original Latinx!Fentons headcanon, but I just had an idea for an addition.

Paulina’s big meteor shower birthday was her quince, so I thought instead of just asking Danny to invite Phantom to the party, she asked Phantom to be her escort. Danny’s kind of lost interest in her at this point but agrees to be her escort because he knows how monumental this is.

Due to all the time they have to spend together to prepare, Danny (as Phantom) and Paulina actually become real friends, and maybe at some point he even mentions that he remembers the chaos that was involved with his sister’s quince, at which point Paulina realizes he’s Latino. They end up laughing over the fact that Paulina’s got a brother two years younger than her, and they tease each other over their differing perspectives and how Danny understands a lot of Paulina’s brother’s frustrations and how she understands Jazz’s (not that she knows they’re talking about Jazz).

It’s also the first time that Phantom has told anyone outside of Sam and Tucker about his life as a human, and they connect in a way Danny didn’t expect. He doesn’t tell Paulina that he only “died” recently, but he doesn’t exactly dissuade her from thinking he died in the 1940s either. Paulina thinks she’s narrowed it down to the Zoot Suit Riots in ‘43 or fighting in WWII.

At the quince itself, the court’s entrance is absolutely incredible, and Danny and Paulina dance like pros. After the Changing of the Shoes, there’s a slight problem as Paulina’s never worn heels before, but Danny floats a little so she doesn’t trip.

As for Jack and Maddie, they don’t bother Phantom throughout the entire deal- practicing, official rehearsals, the actual quince- they aren’t going to mess up a girl’s quince, especially since they remember how chaotic the preparation for Jazz’s was.

LA’s Zoot Suit riots

The zoot suit was a popular style of dress among Black and Latino youths during WWII. With ballooned pants that tapered at the ankle, oversized jackets, and a broad-rimmed hat, zoot suits were a way for these marginalized groups to express autonomy. Mainstream society, however, viewed zoot culture as rebellious and aggressive.

In June of 1943, violence escalated in Los Angeles when white servicemen scoured the city attacking zoot suiters. The targets were predominately Mexican Americans, but African Americans and Filipino Americans were also attacked. For several days, servicemen dragged nonwhite youths into the streets where they beat them and stripped them of their zoot suits. Police often aided the attackers or arrested the Latino victims. The Zoot Suit Riots lasted for days and sparked racial violence across WWII America.

REPOST: Anytime you hear someone criticizing black people for rioting, share this info with them.

Prior to the 1960s, rioting (or race riots), consisted of whites burning down and destroying black communities simply because they didn’t want them there. Mostly in major northern, western and Midwestern cities, where the population of black citizens grew tremendously due to the great migration. Blacks fled from Jim Crow south to seek refuge and to find jobs and homes. The competition was fierce, thousands and thousands of blacks flooded the cities resulting in “white flight”.
White people were angry that blacks were taking over jobs and building their own communities. Even white soldiers that have been stationed away from home were furious when they came back to this “change”.
This is how race riots started. Whites were not too happy about desegregation in their cities. With subliminal attempts to keep their city segregated, blacks were not allowed in the “white” part of town. Black homes and communities were destroyed and burned down by angry white mobs and countless deaths occurred.
Here are ONLY just a few examples of race riots that took place in our country:
