gabriellcarpes said: Those white brazillians you reblog. I always wonder, do you thin ALL of them would be considered white in the US too? 'Cause ever since I've started learning more about race and racism I realized that I have a lot of friends who are considered white here in Brazil, but in the US they would probably be poc.... I don't know if theres an example of that in that photoset
Yes I think they would all be white in the US too.
I’m a white Brazilian, born and raised there and currently in the US, and I’m definitely not unquestionably white over here. I’ve actually been talking to friends about it, trying to figure it out, ever since I chose white instead of hispanic on a form (I don’t even speak Spanish! Also, the form didn’t differentiate between Ethnicity and Race, and didn’t include Latino) and was told that “that’s not how it works here”, like I may be white where I’m from but not in the US. Anyway, all my white friends tell me I’m white, but they also look at people like Sofia Vergara and say she’s not. Well, in Brazil she would be considered the same race as me! And then my POC friends tell me I’m not white, but can’t really say what race I am either, besides Latina (so that leaves me with “other”? I don’t like that. If I’m not white here, ok, but can I get an “actual”, agreed-upon race then? Cause I’m not just “none of the above”). And if I am white and Latina, does that make me a white person or a WOC? Cause like I said before, plenty of Latinas who would no doubt be considered white in Brazil are seen as not white over here, so if I look at them and identify, does that mean I’m a WOC too?
