I shared a fucking chocolate bar with my sister! It’s not a big deal maybe for anyone but for me yes, it is considering she has not eaten good for days and that she doesn’t like that kind of chocolate with peanuts, and I’m so happy to see her eating and smiling again :’)

BECAUSE Mexican mass culture is antiblack and colourist as fuck (just look at telenovelas). So much so that Afromexicans in Mexico City are thought of as “costeños” and “just really dark” erasing of their African identity (this I know from growing up there) and mexican people whose indigenous features are more visible, continue to be discriminated. 
Whites/white-passing Mexicans are mainly middle/high class almost all of the time. Most of our barrios have been historically poor, where less-white looking Mexicans were relegated to. 
Basically same shit, different country

That’s why it’s so so important for us to talk and dismantle colorism and antiblackness!!!

Anti black and native racism have always been a huge problem amongst Latinx, while white and white passing Latinx continue to be held as being the ‘idle’. It’s disgusting. We have to recognize these issues of colourism in our communities if we’re going to do better.
