Americans do look down on Mexicans — but the liberal, “progressive”, and diversity-inclusive Americans. In a race war craze brewing in America for a couple of years, fingerpointing of who hates Mexicans has become a sport for both blue-haired Liberals and dixie Conservatives. For me, as a Mexican, I believe I have the right to think and say who are the ones who really hate us — you can guess which group went ballistic.
Liberals send me to the children’s table while they defend us from the big bad alt-right.
Yes, American Liberals. They believe they are the crusaders of SJW pamphlet ideals, the white knights of the dispossesed, and the mesiahs by having media and Hollywood at their disposal. And however inclusive and diversified they want to present themselves, they have been the only group in the US so adamant in looking down on me or paternalistically dismiss me. I almost feel being sent to the children’s table, as if they “the adults” are defending me from the big bad alt-right.
“You should inform yourself”
I have the theory that for US Liberals we — Mexico — are just a political card for them to play. That card have kept the BLM movement going, the 3rd wave feminism active, and the Welcome Refugees hashtag meaning. I see them in no way actually getting involved in all-things Mexico. This is an irony, since those purple-haired people always shut whatever argument I say with their infamous “you should inform yourself” — and walk away.
I know Mexicans because I am one.
Really? As a Mexican in Mexico I should inform my self more? Being an Anthropologist, at some times a journalist, may even qualify me a bit to give an informed report of what Mexico is and how Mexican society functions (including legal and illegal Mexicans in the US). I know the hardships and pains, also the lazyness and the obession for handouts. I know Mexicans because I am one — I know our strengths and whatever glories we are capable of, just as I know our weaknesses and troubles. What can White Liberals or Black Democrats know about me as a Mexican in order to shoosh me away?
Let him have cake while we discuss this poor creature’s future.
But American Liberals, Democrats, Black Lives Matter and other groups could still believe I still inform just a bit more in order to be accepted into their conversations. It’s almost as if Pharao and High Priests don’t want to talk to us inferior chaste. Funny — they believe (because they’re not) to be left-winged and progressive but have insulted me royally. Let him have cake while we, the high order of the purple-haired pink-hats, discuss the future of this poor creature from the South.
Liberals and Democrats are so visceral to be so into diversity.
When people here in Mexico tell me “Americans hate us” I always answer: “Yes, Liberals”. I understand where Conservatives come from — they believe in protecting their country, their community or their family. When I talk to them, we actually engage in an true conversation. We always surmise that both our governments are at fault — they say they have too much government and I say we have no functional government. But we can agree on stuff! American Liberals and Democrats are so visceral and full of rage, that their diversity conversation stucks at name-calling and deaf ears in benefit of safe space. To me safe space is a first world issue, and they should straighten up and be at least open to hear us the despicable creatures they are trying to save from Trump. Sad.
