last night i found the most perfect christmas card of all time
i bought it, but i am keeping it for myself.
Here are 10 photos (out of 22) from my series Racial Microaggressions. I have asked my friends on the Fordham University Lincoln Center campus to write down an instance of racial microaggression they have faced on a poster for me to take a picture of them.
Haha that last one. Whenever my dad and I would go places, we’d always get the funny looks. I’m told that he used to get stopped and questioned often when I was a baby — “what’s that Mexican guy doing with that little blonde baby?”
And it was always “your brown dad”, “your Mexican dad,” “your Hispanic dad.” That’s the thing about microaggressions. They sort of get stuck in your skin and you don’t realize how much they prickle until later in life when you’re pulling them out.
I don’t look like either of my parents, but I do look absolutely identical to my grandmother, my greatgrandmother and every other woman in the line o-o
