Which is to say, by wondering why anyone would want to identify as Puerto Rican, that you're perpetuating the racializing logic that animates this idiot Puerto Rican executive and missing the opportunity to address how class is implicated in US discrimination against ALL Latinos. FYI, this mutual racializing between Mexicans and Puerto Ricans in the US has been amply documented in both popular media and scholarship. This phenomenon involves a shared subordinate structural position and the racism that has characterized both communities' experiences in the US for centuries now.
It's interesting to note, in your previous question, which I totally agree with, that you overlook how the family in Westminster was constituted by a Mexican father and a Puerto Rican mother. Which in itself documents how a Puerto Rican presence in the US West and Southwest has largely been ignored or erased. Puerto Rican numbers in these have certainly been lower than those for Mexicans, but it's not new and it's increasing, much as Latino communities in the South and the Northeast of the US are increasingly diverse.
I'm aware that I'm supposed to take your responses (at least, partially) as humorous. (I think.) But mutual racializing isn't helping anyone. And the ongoing racism isn't too funny anyway. Or it's not in certain contexts, when Latino communities are suffering, while those of us who are journalists or writers or academics or executives have the advantage to participate in public fora that are not open to others of us. Lastly, when humor, which is certainly a very powerful and strategic tool, indulges in historic reductionism and erasure, it lends itself to reproducing the racist stereotypes that affect us.
Yes, I'm Puerto Rican, but like many other Puerto Ricans, I've always kept in sight the larger contexts of US colonialist interventions and the history of oppressive relations it maintains with Latin American societies and immigrants. Indeed, we tend to be extremely self-critical and to cannibalize each other, which I think happens with many other Latino national groups. Please don't do stuff that plays into the US's hegemonic strategies because it simply keeps us divided. It's not that I believe either in some lame kumbaya spirit of Latino togetherness, but that political mobilization is hampered by the perpetuating of mutual snarkiness. Juntos pero no revueltos.
