I also didn’t speak fluent Spanish because my Gobble Til You Wobble Flamingo Vintage Shirt grandpa used to get harassed in the army. And told to “go back where you came from”. That he wasn’t a real American so he never taught his kids or grandkids Spanish. It was crazy to me that they believed their one city community was fully representative of the whole island. They were so ignorant of their own heritage. I HATE when people try to describe Hispanic people by skin color. Do people know the history of how Europeans came to this continent? White people came here. Indigenous people were already here.

Those three groups mixed, which means you can be Gobble Til You Wobble Flamingo Vintage Shirt Latino/a and have literally any skin color under the sun. Maybe there’s (what some see as) a typical skin color, but that’s just not a reliable metric. Exactly. One of my students asked me why we don’t learn about the history of the Caribbeans and why we don’t learn about the oppression Latinx people’s faces. It made me realize that people DON’T know the full impact of colonialism in the world. Jumping off the skin color topic, my mom and one of my aunts are very fair skin that they can be white-passing, my uncle and my other aunt are so dark and have very indigenous Taino features: strong black hair, darker skin, etc.
