When Mexicans See "Africans" (or Afro-Mexicans) or.... | Another short chapter in the history of racialized representation in the Americas

The producer of my recent Mextasy show (he who shall not be named) sent along the following Aunt Jemima, Mexico-style, video to me along with a suggestion that I write about Mexican constructions of race. I, el flojo, begged off, saying I had enough to do monitoring Uncle Sam's various and sundry wet and dry dreams and nightmares of "Mexicans" in America.

But I am not so lazy I cannot share a video. Brace for it!
