I'm andrea, a xicanista/soñadora/anzauldista in search of her inner mujer maravilla/adelita/rEVOLucionaria/self. Ni sumisa ni devota.Truth seeker. Forever a student. Body aches in Chicago, soul meanders through Texas, y mi corazon baila por las calles de Chihuahua. Adventures are necessary. One must create art to unveil truth, travel to Saturn, and achieve self-autonomy. The world fascinates me.
The most beautiful experience we can have is the mysterious—the fundamental emotion which stands at the cradle of true art and true science.
— Albert Einstein
some latin@s are so quick to claim lupita as one of us pero no dicen carajo when george zimmerman’s name gets brought up.
that and I’m super wary of latino media claiming her when they never wanna claim any of the afrolatinos in their countries and constantly treat them awfully. It’s that thing where “oh we’ll only claim you as latino if your exceptional” I’ve had very mixed feelings about all those posts going around. If Lupita identifies as Mexicana than that’s awesome and no one can take that away from her but I just feel a lot of fucked up shit that I can’t articulate around those posts going around especially since they DON’T MENTION SHE’S KENYAN AS WELL.
^^^ Thank you for putting into words what I couldn’t.
