HOW DO WE FIX THE DIVIDE?

Lately I’ve been thinking about the divide within the Latinx community.

People within the Latinx community look down upon others for various reasons. Some being, legal status, the color of their skin, or their education. Because of the Trump administration, biases towards the Latinx community, and any other community of color, have been emphasized and unity within the community has become vital.

But how do we fix that problem when these biases have been instilled into the community for years?

How do we urge and convince within our own communities and across communities that unity is power?

How do we show our own communities that although we have different methods, different ideals, we are all fighting for the same cause?

A divided community is a broken community and we cannot afford that, not now and not ever.

Not when others are against us.

Not when SB4 in Texas was passed.

Not when hate crimes are happening.

Not when the DACA program is under attack.

Not when black lives are seen as inferior.

Not when families are being separated.

The power is in numbers.

The power is in standing up for your neighbors, for strangers.

The power is in working with others, not creating a divide.

    That's the problem with our country and many other places in the world. We can embrace our differences and still love everyone who is different from ourselves! I don't know why people don't understand that. How boring would it be if we were all the same anyways?! I completely agree with you. We need to all unite to fight for equality for EVERYONE.
