Any other american latinas very removed from their latino culture? My mom is mexican but she grew up relatively close to the border, thought mexican culture was cringe, didn't teach me spanish, didn't listen to mexican/hispanic music. She was basically a huge Ameriboo. She's still catholic but hates foing to church lol. Idk I just feel kind of very removed from a lot of what people say being latina is like. Just a small vent.

Yes anon, I live in a city with mostly other Latinos like me but neither of my parents are fluent in Spanish so I'm not either and now I'm very insecure over it.

You can always practice with us, anon. Just remember that Spanish can be quite hard because each country has its own slang or way to name an object, but learning neutral Spanish is a big step.

People for some reason (in the US not sure about anywhere else) are so gatekeepy about the culture it sucks, they’ll tell you you’re too white if you’re pale and if you’re Afro Latina because you’re black so you can’t be Latino even though it’s more of a cultural identity than a race.

Today I had this weird realization I guess? I hope I don't get banned for racebait, I'm not really trying to start anything, I just need to put this somewhere because my friends wouldn't understand.
So today I wore a dress to run an errand, nothing too crazy, I've been losing weight so I've been feeling better about myself.
But when I got home and took a shower, I noticed that I didn't perfectly shaved my legs, and I went out like this, and I didn't care, I still felt nice because I like to wear that short dress that looks better on me now that I've been working out and such.
And I remembered what my best friend said, that when she was visiting Europe, she didn't feel like she needed to shave at all, she felt perfectly fine as she is. But that made me remember how I felt like I was being judged harshly while visiting Europe because of my skin color, even though I probably, if not, surely I have a more stable life than the average European person of my age back then which let me travel back and forth.
I felt like I was being judged terribly like how I felt traveling to the Arab emirates, like everyone thought I was walking trash and that no matter what I wore, everyone felt as uncomfortable around me as I felt around everyone else.
At stores I would get followed around even though I subconsciously put my hands behind my back or just as close to my body as possible because I don't want to seem to be stealing. I also felt like people were pretty rude in general, specially at restaurants or any establishment really. It wasn't all of the time but it was still pretty uncomfortable.
It's kind of crazy to me how two people can have such different experiences even if they have the same passport.
Whenever I travel I feel like I have to look perfect all of the time, sometimes I even wear high heels and makeup. But my best friend was capable of just feeling comfortable and being herself, and like she was just part of the crowd.
I need to stop thinking about these things whenever I travel or just go out in general.

I'm Mexican on my moms side and grew up with that part of family and I grew up in a town that is mostly Mexican immigrants/2nd, 3rd, 4th gen Mexican and I recently moved to the south in a state with a mostly white and black population. I am considered to be pretty white looking where I'm from but in this southern town it seems most people can tell my mom is brown just by looking at me. Although I speak spanish, my English is just as good if not better and people treat me like a foreigner sometimes. It's really surreal experience for me because in my hometown I was the werita the pochita fresita of my friend group. But here I have had both white and black southerners ask me if I'm foreign. I even try to sound as American as possible but some of them still treat me like I shouldn't even be here when I was literally fucking born here. This is an issue I never faced because even though my more Latino friends back in my hometown pointed out how European I looked, here it is like I am tainted or something. It makes me kindof sad but I also feel like I understand how some of my black friends in my hometown felt being treated like outsiders by the Mexicans. I am by no means hung up on skin color like other Chicago's are. I find the whole "mejorar la raza" ideology to be disgusting (not saying having babies with white people is disgusting but if u only get with white people to have white babies rather than because u love the person that I find to be fetishy of white people and gross). Like I look Italian at best. In my mom's family I am one of the whitest looking family members so it's jarring seeing white people in the south act like I am some brown invader. It also didn't help when I would work in customer service and be the only one who spoke Spanish. That made the southerners even more mad but it's like dude at least I'm getting us more customers because now the Venezuelans and Guatemalans and Mexicans know a Spanish speaker works here so more profit ya know

I know a lot of kids like you that think they can pass as white, and even call themselves albino mexicans for some reason lol for simply being pale skinned but you can tell they're not white and then get shocked when white people pin them down and ostracise them
Also, racist whites like that will hate you for simply knowing Spanish, they have an inferiority complex about it

Please be mindful of the racists who will never be serious with you and only string you along if you plan on dating.

I just learned the culture of my ancestors enabled systematic child abuse and I'm not sure how to process it.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Human_sacrifice_in_pre-Columbian_cultures

>According to Bernardino de Sahagún, the Aztecs believed that, if sacrifices were not given to Tlaloc, the rain would not come and their crops would not grow. Archaeologists have found the remains of 42 children sacrificed to Tlaloc (and a few to Ehecátl Quetzalcóatl) in the offerings of the Great Pyramid of Tenochtitlan. In every case, the 42 children, mostly males aged around six, were suffering from serious cavities, abscesses or bone infections that would have been painful enough to make them cry continually. Tlaloc required the tears of the young so their tears would wet the earth. As a result, if children did not cry, the priests would sometimes tear off the children's nails before the ritual sacrifice.[7]


>In History of the Things of New Spain Sahagún confesses he was aghast by the fact that, during the first month of the year, the child sacrifices were approved by their own parents, who also ate their children.[9]


Tlaloc, by the way, rules over Tlalocan in the movie Black Panther: Wakanda Forever. I'm not sure why Disney thought honoring a brutal god who demanded the tears of children was a good idea.

Both these comments are so funny because I’ve been thinking about this for years atp.

One of my parents is 100% European, non Hispanic, and the other is mestizo. I am actually white looking. Not the way Hispanic people use the word “blanco/a”, where all you need is to have ambiguous features and slightly lighter skin, but fitz level 1 skin, strawberry blonde hair, green eyes, and have my white parent’s facial features.

Once, there was this guy who didn’t believe I was anything other than white until I showed him pics of my family. This is a fully Polish boomer moid from the NE. As soon as I proved it to him, the flip switched, and I was no longer white to him. “You can look white, but you’re not actually white” is what he said during the convo lol.

Which is literally true. I’m like 81% euro and 19% native according to dna testing. The race thing doesn’t bother me idc. But I remember my fully white neighbor saying something that realllly pissed me off when we were kids. She asked, “What’s your ethnicity?”, and I replied with both my parents’ backgrounds. She followed up with, “Yeah but you’re not really [insert Euro culture] like me, you’re just Hispanic!”. Man that shit gets me angry just thinking about it today lol. She didn’t realize, since we were children, she was erasing one of my parents in favor of the other, but omfggg I cannot stand this. I love both my parents, proud of both them, and someone “taking away” one due to the other…that’s just how some people operate.

The point is that you can literally be a redhead with blue eyes and unquestionably WASP-y features. It doesn’t matter. If you’re mixed with anything, INCLUDING an ethnicity outside of Europe, some people will not consider you white, or they won’t consider you “actually” white or smthn, to the point that if you’re mixed, you are now labeled under “Hispanic” in their mind, even if you’re closer to the non-Hispanic parent’s culture.

I feel like a lot of Hispanic people who haven’t been around white people that think like this get offended/insulted/sad because you were constantly told that you’re the blanca of the family. You’re treated better too, if we’re being real. You’re the light one, the one with pretty eyes, the one with red cheeks, the one with the “better” genes (fuck mejor la raza btw) etc. Just for stupid bullshit like that, we’re unfairly favored.

It can become a huge problem especially for immigrants. For example, I have a little niece who gets told she’s “white” by my family, even though she’s very obviously mestiza. My niece calls her brothers “negros” teasingly bc this is what the family taught her to do. It’s just the culture, right? But one day, my niece is going to grow up, and she’s going to realize that actual white people around her don’t view her as one of them, and in fact may treat her a little less than, and it’s going to suck at first because of the retarded colorism her parents taught her.

I can’t relate as far as perception on first impressions go of my race, but when it comes to the cultural thing, hell yeah, it drives me up the wall. I grew up in a 90% white town just north of one of the most diverse areas in the U.S.; ironically, this has only happened to me 3x. But with that being said, I kinda wish more of us - both full and half - were aware that there are parts of the country where, again, it just doesn’t matter. You’re not going to be viewed as one them, at least not all of them, and that’s okay. It’s just that the colorism and racialism we’re surrounded by in our families doesn’t fit into the strict parameters of the American view of race/ethnicity.

I feel most comfortable around other Mexican Americans like me, but I do feel left out when the conversations are exclusively Spanish. I'm a 3rd generation MXAmerican and was never taught proper Spanish. I started talking to this guy who has similar life goals, values, and his career is in a similar field. The thing that's making me anxious is I found his TikTok and he has more posts in Spanish than English, meaning he's probably more comfortable speaking his native tongue, so he'd probably prefer to be with someone who also is a Spanish speaker. When it comes to children, I'd like my future children to know Spanish, so if all works out he'd be the one to teach them better.
It's just overall weird being in my 30s in the dating world and preferring Mexican men who are sober lmao. Is it maybe too limited of a preference? but this is something I'm becoming way more comfortable acknowledging.

How is this a problem? Just practice Spanish with him. If you need to practice Spanish with anyone you can learn it with your family too. There's options out there. If this is of any help, you could also ask questions in this thread. I might be able to assist you as well

That's true, one of the first questions he asked me if I knew Spanish and I said it's beginner level and he decided to continue further so it's not a big deal for him. I let my worries take over. I'm practicing at my job speaking to bilingual children and their parents so I think that's a good start.

Interesting post.

Just learn Spanish? You have your foot in the door already if you know some, proper or not. Also, sober Mexican men aren't exactly rare, I've known more sober ones than addicts and I'm not even from a particularly great neighborhood either.

Comparing UAE to Europe is a bit crazy here. Even in the US people are still super racist depending on where you live. Some white people do not care and others treat you really badly. I'm white but growing up in AZ and CO I've noticed this, some places the two mix together very well, and other it has a very segregated racist feel.

That's definitely true. White peoples definition of white is like.. idk Slavic or British looking. And where I'm from, where it's mostly Mexican immigrants and their kids and grandkids, white is when you're not dark skin. I am just so used to George lopez looking people in my family in friend groups calling me white. It was a culture shock moving to a southern state where the white people look like mama June and honey booboo.

Also I feel very called out with the albino mexican comment. Lol I definitely used to refer to myself as a vanilla bean

I noticed when I am talking online to a person from Latin America I don't mention that my mom is Mexican, they are impressed by my spanish speaking/writing skills but then if the topic comes up somehow they are kind of like, annoyed with me? This happens like 90% of the time when I talk to Mexicans. Like we will literally be online besties but then when I mention I have family in Guanajuato they are like disgusted and tell me how I talk like a ghetto mexican. I literally had one dude tell me I talk like a Blood in Blood out character.

But when it's someone from any other country they aren't annoyed per say but they will be like haha ur so mexican!!

I also notice Mexicans will kind of be upset I don't identify as mexican, like they think I'm ashamed of it. But they will also get annoyed that I mention it like I am stepping on their toes and trying to act like I'm more mexican than they are. Non Mexicans seem to accept me more and will be omg u are latina like me ! And they will positively bring up me being Hispanic and how it's a good thing I can communicate in Spanish

So now I don't mention that my family is mexican if I can avoid it mostly because I don't wanna piss actual Mexicans off with my ghetto ass Spanish. Which makes me sad because I like talking to people from different countries and I like hearing from people in mexico but because me being like gringo washed pisses them off I mostly make friends with latinos from Argentina.

I wish there were more spaces online to talk to other Latina women. I feel like using the internet too much is seen as lame and pointless in our culture. I guess its a good thing as it makes us a less terminally online peope but for introverted latinas like myself its already so hard to make friends irl let alone online
