racism against our own people. a product of self-hate.
i grew up watching this with my family, and it wasn't until many years later (adulthood) that i revisited it, and "india" is being used here as a derogatory term. not to mention all of the negative stereotypes of Indigenous/poor/brown women being put on blast.

this is what the criollos see and use to justify the continual injustices against our people.

shit, even our own people eat this up and turn it against ourselves. forgetting we are the same people who built the beautiful teocallis, practiced math, science, engineering, were artists and poets, cultivators of the earth.. and now look, we just see our full blood tlaca as 'backwards'/primitive.

and honestly it hurts to say that because we (at least i) tend to look at our childhood memories as nostalgic ones, my family gathered for shows like this.. now it's like WTF.. this is a product of that colonialized mentality, an inferiority complex.
