This weekend we saw everyone post sweet messages of love about their moms and everything they have done for them. With these sweet posts, there are obviously a lot of photos showing mom and her children all happy and proud of each other. However, there is one Mother’s Day post that everyone is talking about and it is Maluma’s. Here’s the war waging on social media about Maluma’s Mother’s Day post.

This is the Maluma post that has created a major debate on social media.

Maluma, like any good child, made sure to post something sweet about his mother for her special day. It is really sweet when you ready the caption. “Happy day love of my life. Happy Mother’s Day. ❤️” However, people are flipping out about the image.

People immediately had serious questions about why they were kissing like that.

Sure, it might look like a real shocking situation. However, everyone’s family is different and, for some, kissing on the lips is totally acceptable. It feels a lot like Tom Brady and how he kisses his son.

Some people first thought that the post was about his girlfriend.

Tbh, the kiss seems a little more aggressive than one you would give to your mom or dad. It does look like they might be dating rather than mother and son.

The issue seems to be with how open his mouth is.

Some people have a lot of time on their hands to really examine these photos. On a day that is supposed to be about our mother’s some people were out there sleuthing to figure out if Maluma and his mom were too close.

A few people wanted to make sure they weren’t being offensive with their critiques.

Cultural nuances are so easily lost in the age of social media and digital communication. Some things are just hard to understand if you have never been part of the other culture nor have a point of reference as to what is normal in that culture.

People who have a similar culture defended Maluma and his post.

There are so many ways to show love with your parents. This is a little too much for a lot of people but it also depends on what culture those seeing the photo grew up in.

There are some people who are really just over the over-sexualization of people.

Some people just relate on different levels. Some families have different levels and versions on intimacy. It is interesting that some people took a photo of a mom and son and turned it into something sexual.

Like, some people really made this a super creepy situation by wishing to be Maluma’s mom.

It is fine to feel how you want to feel about people. However, it is really questionable to put your sexual and romantic feelings on a photo of a son and mom.

Some people have been finding the humor in the whole conversation.

LOL. Could you imagine his aunt being jealous over the kiss? I mean, clearly, she is not out there being upset over the son-mother kiss. What do you think about the kiss between Maluma and his mom?

This Conservative Black Reporter Tells Amara La Negra She’d Be Doing Way Better If She Didn’t Claim Her Afro Roots

@amaralanegraaln

Recently, Amara La Negra was forced to try to convince Black conservative and “The Fallen State” host Jesse Lee Peterson that Black people exist.

Those of you who aware Jesse Lee Peterson’s existence will know that he has long been problematic and extremely self-hating. The Black conservative is known for his membership of  Choose Black America, an organization of African Americans against undocumented immigration to the United States, and has long accused Black people of being “mentally retarded.” He has also thanked God for creating slavery.

Whether or not rapper Amara La Negra knew this before going onto his show has yet to be established, but we do know that she got an up and close experience on his buffoonery recently.

Amara recently sat down with Peterson, for god knows what reason, to talk about Afro-Latinidad.

(Spoiler alert: he learned nothing.)

Speaking with Amara the host questioned her about her identity and the meaning of the term Afro-Latino.”

“Now that I see you in person you don’t look like a Black person? You look like a dark-skinned Latina or something like that, right?” he asked before quickly following up with “Why would you want to call yourself Afro-Latina?

Um what???

Amara was visibly caught off guard by his words and replied “You’re terrible,” as she laughed.

Peterson, who clearly felt as if he had not said enough, continued.

“Black people are so negative. There’s nothing really good about being an Afro,” He said. “And they pretend to be Afro-Americans when really they are Americans. They wouldn’t even recognize Africa if it drove down the road past them. It’s such a negative thing why would you want to present yourself– because you’re 100% Latina- why would you want to present yourself with the AFro thing. What’s the purpose?”

When Peterson asked Amara what an Afro-Latina looked like she proudly pointed to herself as an example.

Despite Peterson attempting to dissuade Amara from using herself as an example of what a Black person looks like she refused. “I am very Dominican, I am very Latina. I am very Black as well,” she insisted.

“What does an African-American woman look like?” She asked him. “Like me.”

Still, Peterson quickly interrupted Amara saying, “There’s no such thing as an Afro-American woman, they made that up. They are Americans they were born here but they are dumb and so they are calling themselves African Americans because they don’t think for themselves. Jesse Jackson told them to think for themselves. So why would a woman like you so talented, you dont even look like them, why would you want to attach them to your name? You would do much better and sooner if you didn’t have the AFro Latina.”

Amara was quick to cut Peterson off saying that she loved her melanin.

“No, no, no no, I will always be an Afro-Latina. And that is why I am an activist, I love my background I love my melanin I love my race and I feel that is even more of a reason why my name is Amara La Negra.
