English: Many Afro-Latinas struggle as people sometimes are confused and can’t tell if they are Latina or not. By now we should know that not all Latinas look the same. Latinas are one of the most racially diverse ethnic groups in the world. Not all Latinas have curly hair, curvy bodies and tan colored skin!I’m not talking about having an African American mother and a Latino dad, or vice versa. I’m talking about having both parents as Latinos combined with Afro-roots, that’s what makes you an Afro-Latina. Afro-Latinos are everywhere especially Latin American. There are millions of Afro-Latinos across Panama, Peru, Colombia, Brazil, Cuba, Puerto Rico, Dominican Republic, and Venezuela.If you’re of a lighter skin tone some people will ask if you’re a Latina however if you are of darker skin, they will still ask if you are Latina? They may even say “You don’t look Latina”. I question, what is a Latina supposed to look like, just olive-skin like portrayed in the media? Today it’s getting so difficult due to the entire world categorizing every single thing or person. Let’s combine that with the lack of education and it’s to the point that we now have Latinos that don’t know where they came from or know their true roots!We need to learn our roots, not because we need to prove it to someone else but because knowing where you come from gives you a sense of pride and of belonging. It’s so important to preserve your family history. Know your heritage and where you come from it’s essential to understanding yourself. We must also learn our history and legacy in order to be diverse humans.
