shut up, college

so for a couple of days now i’ve been reading the entryway, a project (get THIS!) of white people observing them crazy mexicans in LA. to better report on their LA. really? i mean, really?

to be honest, i spent some time thinking about whether or not this idea came from a place of naivete or just plain white privilege. my gut always says privilege (sorry, gringos) but i am always inclined to be less angry and more understanding. however, this entry where they discuss their dealing with neighborhood cholos (a list of delightful strategies that includes “walk very fast. and pray.”) made me throw up in my mouth. check it out for yourselves:

um, gross. back to latin american studies seminar, assholes.
