After looking at negroclash and being jealous that such a community was around, I decided to make one that I would be able to identify more with. Thus, _latinoclash is born.
I want this to be a place for latino "scene" kids, but not just latino, not just scene kids. Think of this as a place for discussion, cos that is exactly what it is. We are here because we have more than one thing in common. Too bad we can't see each other as the same. I hear too many times, "Ah, Puerto Ricans, I have nothing to do with them I am Mexican," or "Ecuadorians, they aren't like me." When I was very young I thought that we Latinos, Cubanos, Puerto Ricans, Chicanos, south americans, central, north etc etc., were vulnerable because we chose to seperate ourselves. We made ourselves smaller, weaker, by seperation.
This is where it stops. We are not weekend Latino Studies Activists. We are the greatest growing "minority" in the US. We are here.
OYE! WE LIKE EVERYONE. JOIN. YOU DON'T HAVE TO BE LATINNNNO sub-note: the mods will be dicks, if we feel we have to. so please don't piss either of us off, for ANY reason. however, since we believe we're all family in here we'll be nice for the most part. heed our warning.
rules? we don't really like rules. just be nice to each other and lj-cut.
