Oh yeah…this happened.

How about no?
How about FUCKING NO?
This is an insult to my culture and you expect me to calm myself?
Are we really going to play the race card? I mean really? In no way is this an insult to your culture. I get that you can express your own opinion, but I see nothing racist about this.. This is freaking hilarious!
You don’t know me, and you don’t know the premise behind this image. :P
Are we really going to play the “I’m going to act like I don’t belong to the culture of the oppressor by telling you that what you feel isn’t legitimate because you’re a person of color” card?
I guess we are.
Let me start out by saying that this whole face-in-hole stand was set up by legitimate Mexican people who’s only intention was to entertain people, and bring them over to their stand with information on Cinco De Mayo. So your argument that it insults your culture is moot. Unless your own culture is insulting itself.
Also, you are throwing so many accusations my way, little lady.
Did I ever say that your feelings weren’t legitimate because you are a person of color?
NOPE. And I’m really not sure where you got that idea.
You claim to be so open minded, yet you judge me and catagorize me as “the oppressor” which is ignorant in and of itself. Just because I am white doesn’t automatically make me belong to the group that oppressed your people. I am German and Native American… Whatever beef you have with the “white man” is not with me.
If you still seriously are effected by racism than I am truly sorry, but my brother and I being in a picture like this effects you in NO WAY. Maybe if in my caption I had said something offensive…then yeah, your reaction would have been warranted. But I didn’t.
If you were really as open minded as you claim to be, when you first saw this image you would have laughed or brushed it off and not been SO personally offended.
