"Torino’s heritage is untraceable past his great-grandfather…"
This is me. I'm inquisitive and unconventional without trying to be a rebel. Perpetual anger is a bore and I think sarcasm is weak. Here's the best summation of what you'll get here:
We won't always agree. I only require one thing: Be real with yourself for a second.

TODAY I AM IN LOVE WITH: ...
People Mag’s “Most Beautiful People” issue with Mama Rivera. She’s so pretty!
in which i finally see she looks like her mom.
When is she gonna acknowledge that her mama is black?
She’s Black, what?
But she’s never denied her blackness or her people. In fact I remember folks being so in their feels about her dating a rapper like his blackness tainted her & she let people know (again) that she’s a woman of color. She’s posted pics with her entire family. Your bad if you didn’t get the hint.
Woman of color is not acknowledging you’re black. She’s said she’s Latino plenty of times but I’ve never heard her out right say she’s black. When the opportunity presents itself to say that you’re black and you choose not to say it, that’s denying you’re blackness. Maybe she has said it somewhere, but apparently it’s not known or accepted.
She always came off to me as one of those people who always shied away from talking about their blackness.
She’s said Afro Latino sometimes, but mixed In with that she throws in all types of other mixes. She may not deny her blackness but she tries to dilute it by adding all types of ethnicities in there.
How is she diluting her Blackness by acknowledging the rest of her heritage? Like…c’mon now y’all, you want to One Drop Rule this child’s whole family out of her existence. That’s a hot ass mess
