“Do you think you can say something really white to me?”
“Mashed potatoes! Like, the best. Your people, right?”
“Do you think you can teach me how to River Dance?”
This hilarious video by We are mitu flips the script on the weird, confusing and sometimes downright offensive things Latinx people can hear from white people on dates. Or at the office. Or basically anytime.
So, yeah, clueless white people ― the next time you’re about to say anything that sounds remotely similar to what you hear in this video, think about how outrageous it would sound if the roles were reversed. And then don’t say it.
