I posted this today on my school Facebook page and it’s gotten 175 “likes” so far. Naturally, attending a university that is predominantly white, I received a lot of backlash from white students.
Such as:  -“Why do Spanish speakers think English speakers should be forced to accommodate them? Shouldn’t we focus on learning Chinese since China basically owns America?”
-“I think it’s wrong to favor people of your own skin color, that’s racism. If you’re American you should feel comfortable with every other American.”
-“>implying speaking to Latino workers in English doesn’t show support”
-“Latinos are the only ethnicity in the US that feels the need to talk predominately in Spanish.”
-“Also, glorifying diversity is something minorities do to feel better about themselves. There’s nothing good about being different.”
-“I think the point (name) is trying to make is that celebrating culture too much can be a bad thing. That’s not really racist if it applies to all cultures. And why do we care so much about culture anyway? It’s not even something individuals can control about themselves. Also the OP specifically said she likes seeing Latino students speaking Spanish, which is actually racist (or ethnicity-ist) and could be the reason some people took offense.”
Reposting this twice because it’s almost laughable! “Also the OP specifically said she likes seeing Latino students speaking Spanish, which is actually racist (or ethnicity-ist) and could be the reason some people took offense.”
These are ignorant fools I go to school with. Couldn’t even make one comment about empowering other Latinos because self-righteous, white privileged kids felt excluded.
I’m beginning to despise this institution more and more. Education opened my eyes to the harsh realities of oppression, but school helped me realize I’m attending an institution that continues to perpetuate oppression for students of color.
