Why do some people use the term xicana instead of chicana?
Hollywood has given gargantuan support to the idea of Whites invading non-white wombs, countries and continents under the guise of offering a better (white) life to children with melanin. Madonna, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, Sandra Bullock, Charlize Theron, Jane Fonda, Tom Cruise, Hugh Jackman and a hoard of other White VIP Racist Suspects have fleeced non-white cradles across the globe. Common White foot soldiers have also colonized growing numbers of non-white children. Whites invest mightily in circulating the myth that they have non-whites’ best interest at heart. If this were true, they would contribute to the fortification of black and non-white families, so that no non-white child needs the charity of fertility-challenged Whites.
Adoptive parents have the right to choose between age, country, race, handicap, et cetera. The fact that certain countries remain strong favorites for adoptive parents speaks volumes of how racialized thinking continues to live on under anti-racist surface narratives.
Korea, Ethiopia, and Colombia are countries whose children fit Eurocentric standards of beauty more than others in the same regions; compare children from Korea to children from Malaysia, children from Ethiopia to children from Kenya, and children from Colombia to children from Bolivia. Furthermore, [Western] adoptive parents display a clear preference for girls and ‘racially pure’ children.

The only reason we’re still having “n-word” discussions is because white people refuse to take no for an answer.
Finding people who practice decolonial love is as hard inside of a vast movement as it is outside.
