fuckyeahmexico:


There are around over 900,000 Afro-Mexicans in Mexico, mostly Afro-Mexicans live in Oaxaca, Guerrero, Veracruz and Yucatan. First few African slaves brought to Mexico as servants by Hernan Cortes. Later Spanish brought over 200,000 African slaves to Mexico, 1519 to 1821. 
The Afro Mexican population today is of very mixed ancestry; many ignore, or have forgotten, the African part of their ancestry. The predominant mainstream Mexican culture has only minor to moderate African influences. African ancestry is still noticeable in small groups such as those in the Costa Chica region in Guerrero, and some other Mexicans may retain phenotypical clues to African ancestry.

All art is a kind of confession, more or less oblique. All artists, if they are to survive, are forced, at last, to tell the whole story; to vomit the anguish up.

And then Affirmative Action was shot down…
Not only is Sydney Zink (an op-ed columnist for the Daily Northwestern who wrote a highly controversial article against affirmative action last week flooded with baseless claims) against race-based affirmative action, but so is the majority of the student population at Northwestern University - according to a survey poll located on the same webpage as the article.
Then, in an oh so timely fashion, NU alum and Board Member Ben Slivka (after whom a dorm is named) recently wrote to a current, minority, undergraduate student on Racism, Privilege and Discrimination in an interesting manner…I’ll let you be the judge there.
We ought to applaud Sydney Zink and Ben Slivka for their courageous stupidity in showing their asses. They have truly been far more productive than most by opening up apparently controversial conversations on postraciality that I thought we had already settled. It’s time to bring back the “Post-racial Northwestern” blog.
