"I am
just a mess
of anger, bones,
cold flesh and refusal
that cannot be
warmed or tempered
by anyone
doesn’t seem to fit
anyone"

Me//My writing

This is motherfucking bullshit.
I am an English-speaking American citizen. I have collegiate-level English language and grammar skills and an excellent handle on and interest in linguistics in general. I am also a first generation Afro-Dominican, ESL speaker whose mother tongue is Spanish.
There are millions of Spanish speakers, bilingual or otherwise, legal or otherwise, in this country and all across the Americas. The Americas are mostly comprised of Spanish-speaking Latin@ countries. It is arrogant, racist, and bigoted to not move to make this country bilingual and accessible based on those reasons and for Latin@s. It is entitled, supremacist, and bigoted to hold this aggressive, toxic attitude, to tell people to “go back to Mexico,” reducing us to one monolith, showing us you most likely have a highly racist caricature of us in your mind. It is dangerous to devalue the existence, cultures, and livelihoods of Latin@s, immigrants & naturalized citizens, legal or otherwise. It’s galling to be ignorant to the massive amount of privilege English speaking Westerners have in the world, given that everyone else is expected to and generally does speak English, so you don’t actually have to learn Spanish when you go to Mexico. It is hilarious do to this all while speaking in poor English.
Get your head out of your ass and join the real world. We’re here to stay, y si, hablamos Español!
