El Cohete will be participating in The Show Must Be Paused initiative. No recaps today, just some time to reflect on what’s happening to our brothers and sisters and what we can do to help.
Black Lives Matter, and Afro-Latinx are our people too. But too often, our favorite media doesn’t reflect the diversity of our community, and that contributes to racism among Latinx and a sense of “us and them” that has no reason to exist.
Yep, Latinx can be racist too. Or we can choose to be anti-racist. We can embrace our diversity and find strength in it.
The link above has more information about the initiative, including some concrete ways to participate.
