Whoa!!!!! That is a crazy revelation that Andrew brought up on the podcast. It just goes to show you that racist messages are given to us from day one and no matter who you are, whether white or a PoC, you are hearing it and it becomes a part of your thinking pattern.

Tru Confessions: I used to make Mexican jokes about myself and laugh along when other people made them at me (which happened all the time) and I'm not even Mexican, I'm Venezuelan-Cuban. I also started going by Andy instead of Andres when I was like 10 because I was sick of people not being able to pronounce it. I let myself be colonized sorry yall.
