Or is she?

So I guess some of y'all heard about Blake Lively causing a stir in recent news, and no, it wasn't the dress she wore at the Cannes Film Festival. Instead, the actress got backlash for posting a picture on her Instagram account with the caption reading: "L.A. face with an Oakland booty."

Okay, so what?

Listen, ask anyone I know and they'll tell you I'm pro-black! I know what you speculators are thinking "You can't be if you're giving this a pass." Blake was quoting a song from Sir Mix-a-Lot famous hit Baby Got Back. It's not like she said anything racially insensitive, and if she did she would have got called out on that sh*t!

I'm not going to knock any woman for celebrating her body against the norm of beauty, but was Blake Lively being racist? No. That quote alone is un-related to the biggest question: why having a big butt is dehumanized when she is black, but celebrated when she is white? That's what we should have a conversation about. But just because Blake posted a quote that wasn't meant to be racially charged, that means we should attack her online?

I had just walked across the street from the soccer field back to the school. I turned around and saw the cars rushing, passing each other, going fast over the crosswalk where I had been moments earlier. “It would be so easy to jump in front of one of them,” I thought, looking at the cars. “I could jump, and this life that I’m stuck in would be over.”

A Tribute To The Lonely Hispanic

In honor of Hispanic Heritage Month, I’d like to share a few thoughts about being Hispanic in a country where it’s hard to be Hispanic.

Just a little background information; my dad was born in Mexico, came to the U.S. as a newborn and became a citizen when he was 25 years old. My mom was born and raised in the U.S. as were my grandparents and great grandparents, but my great-great grandparents did migrate here from Mexico. I am proud to classify myself as Hispanic but there are times when I feel like I’m living a double life and I don’t fit into either one.
