Sample Book Insights:
#1 Whiteness is celebrated in Mexican culture, so I aspired to have the beauty of white Mexicans on my face and skin. The media I consumed also shaped how I viewed myself and those around me.
#2 The song of the colonizers plays on, constantly erasing and disrespecting the Indigenous and Black Mexicans who have survived all these years.
#3 Even when you can’t erase or ignore the history and importance of Indigenous and Black people, you are not allowed to claim power alongside your identities. The identity must then be erased.
#4 In the United States, being white means you exist. It means you matter.
