It all started with the statement from “Bad Dominicana” that Dominicans recognize their blackness MORE than other Latina/os… a very problematic thing to write. I’m not denying that there are Dominicans who embrace their negritude, but this “more than” rhetoric points fingers to others instead of looking deeply at oneself, no matter who you are or how much “you write” about these issues. I throw mugs from pedestals, forreal yo.
I simply said that more needs to be done… y de ahí to’ se fue p’al carajo.
Anyway, this blog is titled Behold the Boricua, but I’m part Dominican ya’ll and proud of it. And I’m of obviously African descent. No se puede jugar conmigo. Let’s be real ya’ll, #realtalkfriday. Hit me up on twitter: @BeholdBoricua.
