true friendship isn't about being there when it's convenient; it's about being there when it's not. 😉

🇵🇷 Always an honor to be recognized for our work. Very thankful to be featured in this article along with our Afro-Latinx peers. Our platform allows us an opportunity to educate, as well as reflect on the ignorance we experience. Everyone has a story and it’s not the same. We are Black Puerto Ricans from the South Side of Chicago, but grew up spending our summers in Puerto Rico. We’ve found that sharing our stories, and the stories of others, inspires our Afro-Latinx peers to feel comfortable sharing theirs. Since the blog began, many of our readers have felt inspired to become more vocal about their identity journey, whereas in the past they were reluctant to do so. We would encourage all Latinx to learn their personal history, as well as genuinely acknowledge, celebrate, and embrace Afro-Latinx. Tap link in bio. ⌨

✊🏾 NEW blog post on BoriquaChicks.com!  Elza (@elzaqueen ) of @aretesbyelza "I find inspiration when I re-connect with my roots through mediation and reflection on a day-to-day basis. Purpose and success is what I live by." A powerful being once shared these words with me, “Don’t’ let what you don’t have stop you from getting what you want.” Learn how to seek within and trust self. Every day you rise, give thanks and continue to invest in your passion. Whatever you do, do it with purpose and maintain a daily discipline towards your goal/s." photo credit: @prosphotos by Pro (link in bio) 📸

people--specifically Afro-Latinx--have been asking for a while now that Gina Rodriguez be mindful of what she is saying and doing out here in these streets with her anti-Blackness behavior.
*
Gina, (@hereisgina ) my Boricua/Chicago hermana, this is why.
*
*
Dear Gina, A brand is everything that you present to the world that leaves them with an impression of who you are and what you stand for. A brand is the music album called YOU! 🎶
*
From your Golden Globes speech that tugged at our hearts to your CW Upfront message about diversity and inclusion, to all the moments where you have used your platform to root for womyn, Brown folks, and Black folks--you have created a persona that you care about shining a light on those who are often ignored, mistreated, and excluded from the mainstream conversation. You positioned yourself as a champion by often leading these conversations. However, lately you've been getting it wrong. 🤷🏿
*
We want you to win but we want you to be responsible. Know that responsibilty means taking advantage of the opportunity to listen and do better. Hire somebody...a coach / a scholar / an activist to sit down and break down intersectionality, the Black diaspora, etc. After they break it down, keep them on your team to hold you accountable in your communication and actions. 📚
*
If not, folks will continue to question your intentions, dismiss your (white) tears and point out your unwillingness to get it right.🖊 BoriquaChicks.com ❤

📸 Raquel & Rebecca 🇵🇷 ❓How can we better increase Afro-Latinx representation across all media platforms? 🎤 "We believe that we must keep it real and honest when it comes to representation.  We should continue sharing our stories. Everyone has a story and it’s not the same. We are Black Puerto Ricans from the south side of Chicago, but grew up spending our summers in Puerto Rico. We’ve found that sharing our stories, and other people’s stories, inspires our Afro-Latina peers to feel comfortable sharing theirs. Since we began BoriquaChicks.com, many of our readers have felt empowered to become more vocal about their identity journey. We would encourage other media platforms to acknowledge, celebrate, and embrace Afro-Latinx in an organic and fresh way—whether that be in the digital space, film, television, etc." via @hashtagiamenough "Women's History Month; Afro-Latinas in Media" interview. perfect shot by @francesglennstudios 🖥
