I want more Mexican characters in TV/film not as the help, the field worker or the gangster. Yes that is a reality but WE ARE MORE THAN THAT. we’re not all undocumented immigrants. We don’t all work in hotels or the kitchens. AND SO WHAT IF WE DO. that does not make us lower than you. We come here for a better life, not to be shit on because you think we are less than you. I want Mexicans of all different skin colors on TV/film because we are not all one nice shade of brown.

Destroy the idea that men should respect women because we are their daughters, mothers, and sisters. Reinforce the idea that men should respect women because we are people.

I remember when I was younger and I wanted to be beautiful; now I’m older and I want to be intelligent. I want to burn hearts with brilliance and engulf souls with compassion. I want to be loved for my thoughts and nothing else.
