I CAN’T HANDLE THIS
This ended completely different from what I expected
I like this. Don’t try to win someone’s love with gifts and flattery, just try to relate. It’s beautiful.
HONESTLY THIS GIRL SHOULD GET AN OSCAR

Anonymous asked: What's a "white Mexican"? A white-passing Mexican? Or a person of white origins born/living in Mexico? I've never heard the term before.
White Mexicans are exactly what it sounds like. White people born in Mexico.
You probably have never heard of it because of the “raza cósmica” lies a lot of us readily consume. There’s a reason why whiteness, although ever present in Mexico, isn’t spoken about. Instead, everyone speaks of mestizaje.
The notion of mestizaje allows for a select few to claim indigeneity for the sole purpose of power and control, while simultaneously erasing the very present black and indigenous people living in Mexico today.
Mestizaje serves as a derail. There can’t possibly be racism in Mexico if
"everyone" is mixed.
But simply looking at all aspects of society, one quickly realizes that’s not true. The poorest are always the darkest. The lightest always on top.
Whiteness and white supremacy permeate everything in Mexico. And white and light-skinned Mexicans benefit greatly from it.

Muhammad Ali on the Vietnam War Draft
This has been intentionally misquoted. In the gif that says “You my enemy, not the Viet Congs…” there have been words that are purposefully omitted. He says that white people are his enemy while giving this speech. Watch the video for yourself. Shame on whoever edited this gif set.
The true quote is:
MUHAMMAD ALI: I’m not going to help nobody get something our Negroes don’t have. If I’m going to die, I’ll die now right here fighting you. You’re my enemy. My enemy is the white people, not the Viet Cong or Chinese or Japanese. You’re my opposer when I want freedom. You’re my opposer when I want justice. You’re my opposer when I want equality. You won’t even stand up for me in America for my religious beliefs, and you want me to go somewhere and fight, but you won’t even stand up for me here at home.- Words of wisdom..
