Waving the stars and bars around at a trump rally makes you the coolest Mexican-American around. 

Funny (not really) true story.  One of my childhood friends is Mexican and adopted by his white father, who is super MAGA, election stolen, no shot for me, commies won't win dude but otherwise a good enough person.  As many kids do, he has adopted his parents political beliefs and will go on tirades about how Mexico would have been better off if the South won and Mexico joined to Confederated States of America....

He posted anti-police, pro-black nationalist content and then ran over a bunch of white people.


Conspiracies are when you try to claim police are targeting black people........or claim that riots are "peaceful".

The hate you ooze continues to indict you.

What is to be done about BLM?

OK, I get I've been a somewhat sporadic presence here for a few months because of my studies and work and family and such. So, can some of y'all give me the quick rundown on @x97 and what his deal is? I'm too old and lazy to trust my own judgement here.

Intentional homicide per DA.  Tim Pool and Andy Ngo hunches were correct.  

I don’t know about that. Priscilla Ford was just a crazy evil bitch, she didn’t need any deeper motive. It just seems like radio silence on this since early last week.

he's gone for a month. well a month minus a week I guess. he'll probably respond to you then

He chickened out the last time I asked about what is to be done about the "irredeemable." Disappointing. Maybe this time I will get an honest answer.

I mean, Latin America has a longer and more complex history with race and whiteness than we do and they've grappled with it less, in most cases. 

Latin America is insanely complex, sure.  Immigrants from Venezuela and Cuba blame socialism for everything, and bought up the absurd Facebook claim that Biden is a socialist, hence Biden lost Florida.  
 

then there’s just some of the Hispanic culture around redneckism and machismo that they want to adopt.   Voila, you have the brown equivalent of a white trump supporter.

No, that isn't what I was going for. 

"Hispanic" isn't a race. It's used as a placeholder, generally for "mestizo", in American English, which is some weird shit. "Hispanic" doesn't mean "brown", it means "native tongue = Spanish." "Latino" is short for "Latin American" which means "Speaks Spanish or Portuguese west of the Azores". There's a lot of brown people who speak Spanish, but there's a hell of a lot of white people and black people who speak Spanish, too.

It’s imprecise, but not idiotic.  Hispanic people definitely want to increase their proximity to whiteness in the US because, well, white people have an easier time of it in the US.  So they hop on “whiteness” bandwagons, like gun culture, hating immigrants (“I got here legally, so can you!!”), etc.  

This is true but I've often found it's based on class more than anything. Latinos who've made it in America, are solidly middle and upper middle class, and who are, let's be honest, lighter-skinned are more likely to do this. 

This phenomenon doesn't represent the majority of Latinos in this country who are working class.

This is absolutely true.  It's also true in Mexico, as well.  @youngredbullfan has some great insights on how how lighter skin Mexican nationals face better outcomes than darker ones and upper society tries to increase their proximity to lighter skin or whiter if you will.  

 

This is true everywhere in Latin America. Colorism is pervasive. Lighter skinned people with more ancestry from Spain are almost always the wealthiest and almost always compose the ruling elite. Systemic racism continues, not just against Afro-Latinos, but also people with more indigenous ancestry.

Ok, thanks for the pedantic reply, but my point kind of stands.

ok, so portagees, French and Italians are white now.?  Right. Try telling my grandmother that.  The definition is always changing.

Any family that has lived in a place like CA for more than a couple generations is so mixed that classifying someone as white or non white is absurd.

a Romanian immigrant are they white?  Is a 4th generation American with some Mexican American heritage and a Spanish last name, they aren’t white?

the whole thing is silly

No, it's idiotic.  The whole notion of a "white race" is counterproductive and biologically, anthropologically, and historically inaccurate.  It's not imprecise,  it's a fallacy.

Yes, of course it’s a fallacy; one that white people have been benefiting from at the expense of everyone else on the continent for 400 years.

Yes, if your family members came over, say, in 1940, they would’ve been deemed “white” and avoided the discriminatory actions faced by black people, American Indians, Latinos, etc.
