This is a clip from the game show "Password" in 1962. In the 60s, Rita Moreno played white-ethnic roles. "A Puerto Rican playing an Irish woman. Why not?"

"white Hispanics’ privilege will never be equated to that of a white westerner." Before the 1980s, nearly all Latin Americans in the U.S were considered to be simply white. And in the Jim Crow era, they had the same white privileges that any other white people had.

In 1965, the A’s sign 59-year-old Satchel Paige as a gimmick to generate fan interest. Nobody informs Ol’ Satch it’s a joke, however, and he proceeds to just fucking shut out the Red Sox for three innings.

Muddy Waters on white people singing the blues. This was during the height of white rock bands emulating and exploiting BA blues music and culture.

That blue lives matter flag bothers me so much because it literally only exists because of protests about police killing Black people.

50% of the participants in this study described Black Americans as "undereducated/unintelligent" and only 15% did so for black immigrants The structure of the stereotypes about Black Americans and black immigrants "are not represented in a comparable way"

The U.S. government once set up a bank for formerly enslaved people to deposit their new earnings. It ended with one of the biggest robberies in American history — and its impact is still felt today.

After the 2014 book "Making Hispanics", more people are finally starting to acknowledge that this happened. But it's too often reduced to a story about choosing a term. "Hispanic" wasn't a semantic change, it was inventing a NEW minority group in the 80s. history.com/news/hispanic-la…
