Colorismo en Latin America

Episode 62


Inspired by one of our listener letters, LWL develops a discussion on colorism, its complex history in Latin America and in the United States. From the sixteenth-century onward, skin-color has been a factor that has affected the way we relate to each other. The race relations in this country have also influenced the way we interact with each other and the media we consume. What is the casta system? What is purity of blood? How are those categories reinforced today? FavyFav and Babelito get into these and other topics relating to colorism in the Latinx community and Latin America.Thank you to our listener, Pamela, for inspiring this episode! #SupportLatinxPodcasts #SupportBrownPodcasts #DavidCraven #LWLpod
