|discosamurai||12:48 pm - Hi, everyone!|
Hi, I'm the Disco Samurai and, despite the nickname and anything that may seem contrary to it, I'm a mexican.
I must be honest: it really picqued my curiosity when I found this place. I ran an interest search on "Mexico", trying to find more people who were from my country who used LJ (which, I assure you, aren't many) and I finally ended here. A community that thinks mexicans are cool? Wow, how awesome and unique is that? ^^; -- I've seen plenty of things on the opposite train of thought and finding this one was really refreshing.
So, how did all this start? I'm really curious as to why some of you joined or how this all began. In return, if you have any questions to throw my way, please do so! I hope I can respond as you deserve and make some great friends here to remember for a lifetime! ;3

Hi, i am doing my final major project on Mexico and wandered if you guys could help me.
I am making a lingerie collection influenced by Mexican Folk Art and Macabre artwork. I would like to know more about the general culture of Mexico and the Mexican clothing industry. I have looked these things up on websites but i would prefer to have it from the horses mouth. I also need to send an email to Astrid Hadad and wandered if anyone here could translate it for me (assuming she doesnt speak english)
Thankyou in advance x

OK, Im doing this essay thing, and I want to ask you guys a question.
In terms of race, is there discrimination and disrespect towards latinos/ hispanics in the Lation/ Hispanic community (and/or country or orgin or ethnicity) based on skin color? and has it affected you?
Im of Mexican descent and I know it has affected me. Ever since I was a little girl, my mother would always call me prietita, even though when I mentioned it to my Latino/ hispanic friends, they were all seriously appalled.
PS. Im crossposting this in other communities to see what answers I get :)

I thought the women might enjoy this. I know I did.
You Know You're Latina When....
You can fight two struggles everyday and make it look easy.
You can make a child happy on Christmas Day even if he didn`t get a damn thing.
You are admired and fantasized about by men of other races and know that when you do cross over it's done out of sincerity, not a political move.
You watch other women pay plastic surgeons tons of money for physical features you were already born with.
You curse a man out, make him feel like crap then, make love to him the same night and make him feel like a king.
You can wear the hell out of spandex
You can raise a Doctor, a World Class Athlete and an A+ student in an enviroment deemed by society as dysfunctional, broken, underprivileged and disenfranchised.
You can heat a whole house in the winter without any help from the gas company.
You can go from the boardroom to the block and "keep it real" in both places.
You put a LATINO and his non-LATINA date on pins and needles just by walking into a room.
You wear big hoop earrings, 3 1/2 inch heels, and a miniskirt to work - and make it look professional.
You can live below poverty level and still set fashion trends.
You look 21 even though you're 31.
You're proud to be latina - and you pass these jokes on to all your latina friends!

|alaksandra||10:25 pm - Just joined here.|
I'm Mexican-German, so I guess that makes me half cool, but my Momma's family is definatly cool. My father and his can't help but stink (they're divorced and i really don't care for him and his family - well except my siblings, but that's another story). Luckily I grew up with her side of the familia. Unfortunatly, rebelious as I naturally am, I didn't learn Spainish and I regret that constantly.
I live in Traverse City, MI, and it is sooooooooooooo lacking culture and I rarely see Mexicans. The Mexican food here is appalling, and very much lacking in quality. Keep in mind I hail from San Antonio, Texas.
Oh, well, just ranting here on my first post.
