why even have an award show gravity has won like everything
This whole thing reminds me of high school where the same handful of kids got into all the clubs and stuff. Why even bother with it when the same always get…
Oh wait I just reread this and I need to clarify.
Alfonso Cuaron is NOT Latin American.
He is MEXICAN.
Born and raised ok
Mexican. Not Latin American. Mexican.
Do you mind elaborating a little bit on this?
Because every definition of Latin America I know includes Mexico, it being in Mesoamerica.
Or are there nuances involved in this that I’m ignorant of?
OH LOL sorry for some reason I thought you had reblogged a different post! Ah the wonders of blogging right after you wake up.
Here in the states, among the Hispanic community, “Latin American” has the connotation that the person was either raised in the United States or born here.
If that’s not the case, we refer to them as the nationality they’re from. So, since Alfonso Cuaron was born and raised in Mexico, and the only stuff he has done in the US is movies, but not grow up here, he is Mexican.
Of course, were he to define HIMSELF as Latin American because of the time he has spent here, then that’d be another case. However, I’m pretty sure he still defines himself as Mexican.
Oh wow I didnt know that. God, I have so much to learn. Trying to get ahold back on my heritage but I am totally lost on those sorts of things. Thanks!
No problem! It’s quite hard and confusing at times but you’ll get used to it as you learn more and more
