How can people be so ignorant?😔
NOT ALL LATINAS ARE ONE COLOR !
So I'm wearing my PR necklace and some woman asked me did I get my necklace from there...
I told her oh no I got it from here , (She looked at me funny as if I wasn't supposed to be wearing it )
I replied with I'm Black and Rican.
She had the nerve to tell me I don't look like I was mixed at all....EXCUSE ME !?!? My Nana 👵🏻 is a fair skinned ,blue eyed Puerto Rican while My mother and uncle are brown who are also Rican!
Latino's run in all different shades.
I have family that look Caucasian and we have some that are black as night who are FULL LATINA
Like damn now and days you're either too black to be Latino ,too Latino to be black/white , or too white to be Latino... I love both of my parents ethnicities
Growing up I was mostly raised by my mom but she taught me Both cultures.
Holidays we ate baked mac n cheese and arroz con gondules , Drank Henny from the bottle n sipped coquito lol
A lot of people still ask my sisters and I questions or try to make us prove how "Rican" we were....
Say something in Spanish! That Never gets old 😒
It's cool because we don't even mind surprising people.
Many people are just not informed of the history of the Afro Latino so when something slips out their mouth they sound ignorant...
