nadiezda:

I’ve seen some posts making this guilt trip of how the people who like to dress up as a sugar skull or the Catrina for halloween or whatever is racist and cultural appropriation.

Nah, it’s completely fine, as long as you are not totally ignorant about it or disrespectful, we Mexicans also celebrate Halloween, we break the piñata (which origin is chinese) And celebrate thanksgiving.

So it’s kinda hypocrate to say it’s cultural appropriation (which is not either way) cultures are beautiful and should/could be shared, there are indeed some aspects that can be racist and or appropriating, however dressing up as a sugar skull on Halloween is not in any way offensive.

It’s not like the sugar skull represents us, represents the deceased, and actually it’s just a joyful way to represent them. And the Catrina is just a social critic which became an icon later on for the day of the dead and Mexico. 

So fellow Mexicans, be open minded, don’t even hate, and share this rich culture we have with the rest of humanity, chill.

THIS! YES! 

White Privilege, Explained in One Simple Comic

I’m a person of color, but I’m white-looking (Mexican-German-American)

That little bit of Spanish Blood and that Left German foot are why I benefit from White Privilege. 

I won’t be made to feel about about my birth ethnicites but I’d be stupid not to acknowledge my benefits because of my skin!
