ive been on this website for 4 years, lord knows ive seen some shit but this is without question the WILDEST thing i have ever laid eyes upon
OH MY FUCKING GOD.
This is the dumbest fucking bullshit. The actual story behind this this photo is a woman of indigenous/mestizo descent in Mexico was denied access to a hospital when she was right about to give birth. The hospital used language barrier as an excuse when they started coming under fire for not letting her in (indigenous people speak different languages and dialects 70% of the time) but it was pretty damn clear that she desperately needed help and the real reason she wasn’t let in was due to the HUGE amount of discrimination indigenous people face, whether it be in Mexico, Brazil, Argentina, Colombia, or in my case Puerto Rico, where a lot of my own indigenous family has faced so much fucking bullshit from other people due to their bloodline.
Latin countries treat their indigenous people like shit all the time and the first time a story of said abuse is shed light upon people on social media make some bullshit joke out of it like this. Please say a joke like this to my aunts and uncles in Puerto Rico who where driven out of their neighborhoods and spit on for their heritage. Or when right in front of their faces parents call their children “indio” when they were being little assholes. Imagine your heritage being used as an insult people call others when they’re acting “uncivilized”.
Please educate your fucking selves and don’t just keep yourself in a bubble of misinformation and only caring about north american issues.
Seriously, it is disgusting that people would make fun of her. This is what I mean when I say Latina women need feminism more than anyone else. These jokes about Mexican women popping out babies is extremely racist and hurtful.
Exactly! The woman is quoted as saying how hurt she was and “what an embarrassing and ugly and painful” way to give birth and experience this was. Additionally, this photo was taken WITHOUT HER CONSENT by a witness and distributed and put on the front of tabloids WITHOUT HER CONSENT. Everyone bends over backwards to protect some white actresses for their nudes but people fail to see the horror in things like this.
White privilege is your history being taught as a core class and mine being taught as an elective.
please let them know.
white privilege is your history being taught as a core class, and mine being banned because it would promote "the overthrow of the U.S. government, foster racial resentment, and advocate ethnic solidarity."
