I LOVE Lupita’s dark skin. It’s like marble and it makes any color she wears gorgeous just like her. Dark Skin Pride ^_^
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.
so fucking important.
I can assure you that this DOES in fact exist in Mexico, but as a light skinned Mexican who is certainly not rich nor do I have a status that there are also light skinned Mexicans at the bottom. However even though we’re at the bottom, the way people treat us is differently just because of our skin color, I’ve seen, I’ve lived it in Mexico, you might be poor but at least your still light skinned and that right there is status alone and it’s not fair, but also understand that appearances aren’t everything and there are white Mexicans that don’t have shit and stand next to the dark skinned as well because just like me recognize that the prejudice that the white Spaniards brought over is still evident.
Also, what are we defining as white? light skinned or blonde with blue eyes because I am not the latter and here in the US I am not white just for being light skinned, I also do not have the cultural knowledge to make me a white American.
