¡Ask a Mexican!

Posted: Monday, June 9, 2014 7:00 pm | Updated: 10:13 pm, Mon Jun 9, 2014.

Dear Mexican: If dark-skinned people are so “undesirable,” unwelcome and put down by you gringos, how come you bake in the sun like zopilotes to get dark? Summer is fantasy time for all of you, when you can actually get some color in that white skin of yours. Maybe the whole deal about racists is that they hate being white. … I know for a fact that white women at one point or another fantasize about a dark man, and that many more actually convert that fantasy into reality with guys like me. Who wants to go to bed with a pale guy? I don’t think being brown or black is bad after all. Comments?

    New Mexicans have always had to work to make sure people knew that New Mexico was a culturally unique place, not just some small offshoot of Mexico. But now Santa Fe's local newspaper is importing a column about what it's like to be a Mexican in SoCal, as if that's somehow relevant to the New Mexican experience. I still don't get it.
