Have you thought about anti-black racism in Latinx communities? This author started out reflecting on what’s happening to Haitians in the Dominican Republic, and ended up learning lessons about solidarity that we can all learn from.
I am a 28-year-old Latina feminist who lives with her formerly abusive dad. I can afford to move out but I don’t because I feel an obligation to look after my father. Everything I do is with the hope of making him proud, making him feel loved, and trying to repair whatever is broken inside of him that causes him to be abusive. I want to break so many chains and unlearn so many generations of abuse.
