About Me

Melissa. Latina (Cuban) student at UMiami. I am very interested in books and politics. I post a whole lot on human/global issues and tend to give my opinion on everything. I watch or have watched almost every TV show on earth and I listen to music in a bunch of different languages. Currently learning Hindi! This is a personal blog so all of this will be reflected on here. Follow at your own risk and don't forget to leave comments stating your ideas/opinions/suggestions! (p.s. my url is a quote from Junot Diaz's This Is How You Lose Her!)

Black teens being profiled in a publix grocery store (x

Hey Pharrell, how can this kid get to be #theNewBlack?

this pissed me off. UGHHHHHHHHHHHHH i hate this shit.

and then used a version of that same line they love that has nothing to do with anything they’re doing “it’s a free country”

video from 2011, so Pharrell’s “New Black” bs hadn’t been said.

I’ve decided to write my LAS final paper on Latino colorism in spanish-language television in the U.S. I can’t seem to find a lot of papers on this, but it looks like the few i’ve found give me enough info to support my arguments. I just have to ask my professor if the topic is narrow enough and whether I am allowed to pursue it! I’m really excited about writing this because it will satisfy my curiosity and teach me lots probably. There has to be more info on this out there, I cannot be the one of the only ones that notices that all of the Latinos in novelas are incredibly white passing now



its weird that guys get so touchy when you accuse them of sexism like “im not sexist wtf????” when they should really be worried about “ive been acting sexist wtf????” like dude youre not the victim of an accusation the accusation is the result of your behavior

literally every person born into a position to oppress has behaved like this and its gross
