There is no such thing as a White Latino. I am a light-skinned Latino. I am not white. A thought process based on the superiority within American and Western European societies. Whiteness is not welcoming to people like me despite my looks. We do more times than not as we traverse our everyday lives, but it ends there. That so-called privilege we are thought to benefit from rears its ugly head when we try to buy a car, get a mortgage, apply for a job, or interact with police. Chan School of Public Health. The poll showed one-third of Latinos reported being discriminated against in the workplace, seeking employment, and when seeking housing.
The study is quite telling. It does not, however, cover every aspect of discrimination we face on a daily basis. Speaking Spanish in public, interacting with White America, oppressive policing in our barrios, the systemic issues related to paying higher interest rates on loans, paying larger down payments, and being redlined from Latin or white women in certain areas. Then there are those mediocre Latinos who embrace whiteness in America as if taking sides with the oppressors will somehow grant them immunity from the racism that permeates society in the United States. They eventually find out that nothing could be further from the truth.
If you abandon your heritage and embrace whiteness, racists will treat you like a friend as they mock you behind your back. Hate groups might welcome you as one of their own but once they manage to maintain their superiority over all of us, you suddenly become a target. For racists and white nationalists in America, your last name is enough to doom you to their hateful beliefs.
Many of these willfully ignorant haters refer to all of us Mexicans and think we speak Mexican not Spanish.
They categorize us into the one group that most Americans will demonize in the same way Trump does. In fact, they use many of the same comparisons to justify their xenophobia. There are subtle differences because of the perceived negative impacts they think we bring to American society.
But looking past those Latin or white women differences, the basis for their hate is one and the same. The recent actions of white supremacists over the last decades have led us to where we are today with a much bolder, angrier, and more heavily armed neo-Nazi. These so-called militias are nothing more than Latin or white women gangs of thugs terrorizing every non-white person in every city in the United States.
Emboldened by a president who promotes their hate and celebrates their actions, they now believe that showing up to our neighborhoods and murdering us is justified. If you find yourself taking sides with white supremacists, I hope this piece shines a light on what you are doing so you can stop being so fucking mediocre.
Because when they come for you, we may or may not be there. If you voted for that racist in the White House, you may as well stop calling yourself Latino too. Taking sides with an anti-Latino bigot disqualifies you from ever claiming to be one of us. Thinking that these people adore any of us is not just naive, but willfully ignorant and downright stupid. THAT is what makes you mediocre. Mediocre Latinos who act like they're White espousing anti-Black and anti-Latino sentiments do more harm within the Latino community than any white supremacist ever could due to their proximity to other Latinos.
Light-skinned Latinos aren't White. They are wannabes. Fight me. Because unlike me, you live your life with that whiteness mindset that I mentioned at the beginning of this article. You and I are not the same. I refuse and denounce that same whiteness that led to the wholesale slaughter of our people and the colonization of our lands.
Latinos who side with colonialists are traitors to our respective cultures now just as you would have been when our ancestors were nearly erased from history. If you take sides with white supremacists in the modern era, that le me to believe you would have taken sides with the Europeans who stole our culture and heritage. Of course, it is. We see all of you. None of us who celebrate our culture and heritage have any reason to believe that your motivations are any different. We see you regurgitating the same anti-Black sentiments that white supremacists promote.
We see you ignoring our African and Indigenous roots as if your perceived whiteness makes you superior to the rest of us. My family, who is more than half Black, sees you. I see you as the type of people who would have ed the Texas Rangers as they butchered Mexicans because of some false promise they granted you. I see you as taking sides with Spanish conquistadors allowing them to pillage the wealth of Indigenous tribes throughout the Caribbean and Latin America as they raped women and girls while slaughtering men and boys.
What makes you so different than what I just mentioned? Do your ancestors a favor and drop this white supremacist mentality. Because although you think, act, and oppress like the problematic colonialist mindset that many white Americans live their lives by, you will never be white. Again, they hate us all. You can stop it or you can be a sellout for the rest of your life. Your place is with those who hate you just as you hate your own people and ancestors.
The hate you breed for your own culture, heritage, and belonging is the real shame in all of this. Arturo is an anti-racist political nerd. He is an upcoming author, journalist, advocate for social justice, and a married father of three. He is a top writer in racism on Medium and a regular contributor to Latino Rebels.
Get over it. The same is true when an American moves to another country. Did you even read what he said? He said these are what white supremacists believe about immigrants. Stop believing you are a victim and set yourself your own path. You are mostly European embrace it. Your last name is white f you are Perez or Gonzalez or Navarra. You are white Southern European. Get that through your head. Stop hating your white ethnicity. I wonder if Arturo bothered to read about the history of race in Latin America before being all up in his feelings and posting with his white latino tears.
White latinxs exist, just like Black latinxs exist. Latinidad is not a race. I suggest Arturo thinks about what he would be called if he went to Latin America. It is merely based on looks and is a social construct. So if you look white, you are white. Race and Color are too divisive so in Latin or white women sense I am counter culture. I want to be sensitive and respectful to your deeply held belief and sense of white identity. As well as your life experience. No one has the right to label other arbitrary.
I know they do it all the time. And if these Latinos do say they are not Black then many say that they are trying to deny their race and are ashamed, right. And I can say a lot more but…I hope this helps and not ignite more stuff. Yes, very. Incredibly stupid. The writer clearly has a big, flipping chip on his little, brown shoulder. I am both Spanish and white. This is a real problem that even highly educated Latinos have. Very sad. Actually, the person who is retarded is you. I am actually white because one of my parents is white, not because of my skin colour. There are a lot of Latinos with European parents and grandparents.
Caucasian I got skin originally few descend from south Europe the south European are beige or olive skin, people from south Europe been with white skin descend from Germans, Ukraine, Poland, Russia, Yugoslavia etc, specially from Germany, Poland, and Ukraine, and Yugoslavia with Albania before, but the original south European were olive or beige skin, because the weather was and is warm fir over 10k thousand years.
Regardless even if both of my grandparents were not Europeans but still look Caucasian, I still Caucasian why? Because 1 because the looks is what the people determine your race it has been for over s of years, and people by then were all mix genetically but people were judge by the looks, and do you think it changes the DNA test?
Have you seen a judge in court asking your DNA test before judge you? Of course not. You are what you look like Regardless of your genes, as has been for Latin or white women. And if you got the look by common sense also, because you got the genes that made the look of Caucasian or black, whatever. There are no brown people with blonde hair and blue eyes unless they dyed their hair and wear contacts. Those are White features. For a person to have those traits naturally means they have a majority of European ancestry. I read the article and I sympathize with anyone who is discriminated against.
Although I am a White Anglo American- I have taken spanish classes all throughout highschool and speak spanish well enough with other spanish speakers, but even though I demonstrate that to hispanic employers — they are reluctant to say what I am missing.
They just brush me off. I have looked online to see if other non-Hispanics Latin or white women America have experienced this and there are people who have. Some White Americans, and many Black Americans will say they have. I hope the author in the future will come to understand that resentment and bitterness never solve much, and only builds up walls in the end. If you want to fight guys like Trump, you might consider finding ways to build bridges for people instead. My 2 cents. Author also identifes as Black. My apologies if I am being unfairly critical. I liked the article.
Arturo Dominguez must have triple citizenship-the Latin American nation he or his parents were born in, the US, and Israel. This kind of postmodernist, Frankfurt School, critical race theory mumbo jumbo can only reveal his true ethnic origin.
They are not light skinned they are literally white people who were born and grew up in Latin America.Latin or white women
