This is me..

Ask me something!   Hey everyone, come see how good I look   

25 year old fat chick. Can be NSFW at times. Live with my doggy and BF in SoCal

A few days ago I asked my Mom to send me a picture of my Grandpa for a video I was doing, she took a while but it was worth it. When I heard about the new Cesar Chavez movie, I immediately thought of him, how at over 50 years old he marched and picketed with his friends for his rights and the rights of others. For so long I was taught to be ashamed of being Mexican, by family, by friends, by the outside world. My own parents said they purposely “whitewashed” me so I wouldn’t face discrimination, while they stuck to their roots. All over the place Mexican women were painted only as over-sexed baby makers who speak Spanglish and call everyone puta. I knew I had to stop this in my own mind and in those I come in contact with. Not just for myself but so my children and their children will know what they really came from, who the Mexican American really is, a Chicano. We are not George Lopez, we are not Cinco De Mayo, we are people like my Grandfather and his friends. We come from hard working people whose lives weren’t one big joke.
I am going to make a video and ask you all to please go watch the Cesar Chavez movie on March 28, 2014, for me, for my Grandpa, for all of us. Whether you enjoy the movie or not, it’s important you see it and that they see we’re watching. Let’s support each other, no matter your nationality and appreciate those who marched for the union like my Grandpa(pictured in the middle) and his friends. Chicanos, stop complaining that “black people have it better than us now” and actually support each other like they have, fight like they have, don’t take any discrimination and stop being so leniant with people when they reduce us to a mustache and sombrero. My Grandfather was a veteran, a musician, a man of God and a seeker of justice- let’s remember where we really came from and who we can be. I’m still learning.
