Sweet, minty Jayzus Haysoos Buddha Ahura Mazda [open to interfaith suggestions for this mess. In fact, you know what, just call EVERYBODY. They also don't have to be minty. Sweet, cinnamony Ganesha will work just fine].
I could say a lot - a LOT - about my Latino brothers and sisters and the conscious reinforcement of culturally reified, racist systems of shame. But that would be grossly unfair to the proud Afro-Latinos/Latinas out there, particularly the ones who I am blessed to call my chosen family. Even though, truth be told, a few of my buddies who should know better sheepishly acknowledge that they either have or likely will succumb to family and social pressure to marry White and “improve” the race. (Aaaaand even though ”proud Afro-Latino/Latina” seems to be the exception…not the rule. SIGH. See? I should leave it alone.) Besides, the visuals for this sadness speak for themselves.
Lord. I can’t take this shit AND Good Hair, y’all. Someone come hold me.
