This one is for some (not all) of the Puerto Rican, Dominican, Mexican, Colombian, Brazilians and others who consistently DENY their African Roots and African Connection. This is also for the people who commonly and wrongly refer to all Latin people as “Spanish”.
SPANISH PEOPLE ARE FROM SPAIN, SPAIN IS IN EUROPE. YOU ARE NOT SPANISH. SPAIN/PORTUGAL COLONIZED THESE COUNTRIES AND IMPOSED THEIR CUSTOMS ON THE INDIGENOUS PEOPLE AND THE ENSLAVED AFRICANS.
You are closer to the native people of the Americas and The MILLIONS of Stolen Africans transported to the Americas and the Islands during the numerous years of the Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade.
The colonizer/slave master/invader referred to you as “Hispanic” that term is equivalent to the name “Negro or Nigger”. Know your history and know your ancestors…
Take pride in your Afro-Latino(a) roots…The Natives and Africans have a rich history. Stop trying to desperately market yourself as a Spaniard when the chances are that in Spain they will never accept you as such.
It’s even worse with these famous people, seem like the more money they get the more they get comfortable not mentioning their true heritage. Now I’m not saying everyone in this picture does that Idk if they do or don’t but I just wanted to point out that they are Latino/Latina.
If I learn to speak Chinese It don’t make me Chinese, Me speaking English don’t make me English. I’m sorry to break the news.
-There are people in Brazil, Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico, etc… that are darker than the darkest of Africans.
-Where do you think that Afro or “kinky” hair comes from? You’re African accept it. Embrace it…
Did I keep it too real?
Let me put this drink down before I say something I regret *Martin Voice*
