Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez went to the Met Gala, and like anytime she does anything, it caused a stir. It’s Hispanic Heritage/LatinX month! We cover it’s origins, and explore why some Afro Latinos don’t consider themselves Latino, and why some Millennials are calling out the Anti Blackness of Latinidad, along with the history of white washing in South America.

Episode notes

9/11 20 Years later, and we unpack why it may be hard to reflect, or bear witness on the many documentaries surfacing right now on this look back of this traumatic event, amidst a current traumatic moment. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez went to the Met Gala, and like anytime she does anything, she and her dress has everyone talking on both sides. It’s Hispanic Heritage month! Or LatinX Heritage month? We cover the origins of Hispanic Heritage month, define terms, and explore why some Afro Latinos don’t consider themselves Latino, and why some Millennials are calling out the Anti Blackness of Latinidad, and the history of white washing in South America. Then we have fun facts about the legend, the icon herself: Selena!
