random thought

As a Puerto Rican I’m very aware that I’m not just 100% taino
I’m not 100% anything
I know that part of my ancestors were spaniard, Ramos is not a taino last name
And I know that part of my ancestors are Taino
You can tell through the genetics. The straight black hair and red brown skin that graces my mother and my aunts.
You can not tell me that somewhere in my blood there is not any African blood

I am the product of rape and murder and genocide. My blood sings with injustice and anger. I’m the result of violence. I’m the daughter of hate and I will not remain passive.
