"I have never met any kind of Latino who, although he may have claimed his family was very woman-dominated (“mi mamá made all the real decisions”), who did not subscribe to the basic belief that men are better. It is so ordinary a statement as to sound simplistic and I am nearly embarrassed to write it, but that’s the truth in its kernel. Ask, for example, any Chicana mother about her children and she is quick to tell you she loves them all the same, but she doesn’t. The boys are different. Sometimes I sense that she feels this way because she wants to believe that through her mothering, she can develop the kind of man she would have liked to have married, or even have been. That through her son she can get a small taste of male privilege, since without race or class privilege that is all to be had. The daughter can never offer the mother such hope, straddled by the same forces that confine the mother. As a result, the daughter must constantly earn the mother’s love, prove her fidelity to her. The son - he gets her love for free."
I remember the first time I read something Moraga had written and it really affected me, but this was the first time I read something so impactful, true and close to home that it made me cry.
Sugar skulls are not a fucken white girl fashion statement.
Leave people´s culture alone fucken gringos.
Alright, I won’t go for the low hanging fruit by saying that your stance is outright racist.
But you are acting hypocritical as fuck by using the word “gringo”!
Are you Mexican, motherfucker? I don’t think so! By your own buttfuck retarded ideology you are the fucking asshole “invading people’s culture”.
Ay diosa mirate vos a este pinche pendejo de mierda. ¿quien carajo te crees que eres cabrón? ¿es que no tienes dos gramos de cerebro, no?
Anda a hacerte cojer huevón antes de hablar tanta pelotudez junta, hipocrita sera tu viejo.
¿Racista me venis a decir? ¿Vos que sos un pan de diós seguro no?
Fuck you gringo. Fuck you and your pasty weak white skin that cracks if you spend more than 10 minutes in the sun. Fuck you and your cultural theft and genocide. Fuck you and whatever the fuck you´re trying to defend.
Take whatever fruit you want, pinche gringo, and shove it up your entitled fucken ass.

Neo-Nazis were also pioneering a strategy they called “ghost skins,” which are attempts by right-wing extremists to keep quiet about their hateful views so as to blend into society and covertly advance their causes. “One white supremacist group has reportedly encouraged ghost skins to seek positions in law enforcement for the capability of alerting skinhead crews of pending investigative action against them,” says the report.
Another report released the same month revealed more about what it calls this “fascist path of stealth.” A ghost skin deliberately avoids shaving his head, wearing boots or braces, or anything that identifies his Nazi origins. “We strive to blend into society to be unrecognizable to the Jewish enemy,” one white-supremacist website is helpfully quoted as explaining. Prospective ghost skins are encouraged to join the military and receive training that can be passed on to other Nazis.
they also join the work force. live in the suburbs and generally do their best to make life hard for people that they hate. Imagine this person works in HR. Imagine they work in healthcare. Imagine they are a social worker.
so basically white supremacists encourage each other to gain positions of power where they can abuse, murder, and torture non-Aryans. why are people so surprised that legislative groups like the American Legislative Exchange Council (responsible for stand your ground laws, immigration laws like SB 1070, and the expansion of the private prison/immigration detention industrial complex) have connections to explicit white supremacists??
We need to seriously start looking into shit like this, something this revealing of those who say they’re here to serve and protect ought to be in the million + notes cause it would explain why so many white cops are so trigger happy and ready to maim people of color.
A perfect example of why white supremacists benefit from an aura of doubt. They’re intentionally playing off some invasion of the bodysnatchers type shit because they know that people are skeptical about just how widespread white supremacist ideals have become.
the phrase “curiosity killed the cat” is actually not the full phrase it actually is “curiosity killed the cat but satisfaction brought it back” so don’t let anyone tell you not to be a curious little baby okay go and be interested in the world uwu
David Wojnarowicz wore this jacket in 1988, just 4 years before he’d ultimately die from AIDS. Sadly, just a few years ago some of his artistic work was censored at the Smithsonian. People in power are still content to try and erase his history and the continued struggles of people with AIDS
everyone everywhere please please please reblog this important artist.
"What counts as activism? Why didn’t the kind of emotional self-care me and my girls were doing—talking to each other about all the fucked-up shit we were going through as brown girls—count? Why didn’t my best friend driving her elderly East African mother to the doctor and renegotiating her way through the layers of the racist, sexist, condescending bullshit medical system count as activism? Did staying alive count as activism? Did re-learning Tamil, one of my Sri Lankan family’s languages, count? Did cooking good Sri Lankan food and learning how to cook those recipes I didn’t have female family members around to teach me count? As a South Asian femme immigrant who was having a shitty week, did shopping at the MAC counter and finding the perfect shade of fuchsia lip gloss for my milk-tea skin count?"
