Bicultural Mama: Are You an Oreo, Twinkie, Sno Ball? Ethnic Slur Nicknames

Oreo. Twinkie. Sno Ball. These may sound like innocent delicious sweet treats, but when used in the context of race, they’re ethnic slurs.
In a derogatory manner, they imply how they perceive a person is physically different outside versus how he identifies with himself inside. These are exchanged not only between different races, but sometimes even within the same ones.

Community Village‘s insight:
“I know it’s supposed to be a slap in the face to racists, but a racist is not going to be offended by it.
It’s more of a slap in the face to couples of the same race – implying that if you are a couple of the same race, you must be a racist couple. ” @getgln

Wetback, Mulatto, whatever….

bb

So again yesterday, at zero-dark-thirty, I’m running around. Oops, forgot it was Easter weekend and I have a bazillion things to do. CNN is on and I vaguely hear something about a “Representative” (Don Young (R) – Alaska, to be exact) calling Latinos “wetbacks”. Work, laundry, grocery store, wait a minute. Wetbacks? Really? An elected official no less? From the party that just got its butt beat, because of their insensitivity? Really? This morning, a little more clear-headed, I search for “Congressman, wetbacks” and read the whole sordid little story.

A term that was originally used to describe Mexicans that came across the border into Texas via the Rio Grande River it made me think about a term that I absolutely hate…..mulatto. The first time I was called one, I was in junior high school and someone called me a mulatto with such affection, I thought, that’s cute….tomayto, tomato, potayto, potato, mulatto. But as I grew older, and saw the disdain that people would pronounce the word….moooolattoe…..like it was an exotic, too bitter coffee from Marrakesh…I began to not like the word.
I am tired of the labels that people have to put on others to make themselves feel better. I am saddened that our elected officials continue to make choices that are divisive, especially when talking about those who are from other places, backgrounds or ideologies. Hopefully, somewhere in our future , people will realize that we are all human, and not the derogatory labels they choose to put on us. Peace, bb.
