Confused White People Just Don’t Get Latino Culture And Here’s Proof

All the people of color (POC) on Twitter came together for a fun, cultural party to bond over the misconceptions white people have about POC culture. Here are just a few things that people had to say at the #ConfuseWhitePeopleParty.

It. Is. Never. Butter.


Doesn’t matter if it’s a butter container or a sour cream container. There is always some ~other~ kind of food being stored, whether rice and beans or your breakfast from last week. Something white people just don’t understand.

Just because we’re Latino doesn’t automatically mean we have a large family.


Though, the chances of a large family in the Latino community is pretty likely, it isn’t how the whole community works.

Whether you’re 18 or 98, as long as mami and papi are alive, you will always have to ask permission.


Raise your hand if you’ve ever seen your white friend say they told their parents they were going out instead of asking. ????

Just so we’re clear, Taco Bell ≠ Mexican food. Got it?


Won’t really change the infatuation with Taco Bell, but we should be distancing ourselves from it.

Abuelita’s rules are followed without question.


Look, she spends her whole day cleaning. The last thing she needs is for you to track in dirt with your filthy shoes.

Just because we speak Spanish doesn’t automatically make us Mexican.


There are 23 Spanish-speaking countries in Latin America. Better to ask than assume we’re Mexican.

Speaking of which, just because we’re Latino doesn’t mean we’re from another country.


Sometimes we are first-, second-, third-, even fourth-generation Americans. We just have a little extra sabor!

Meat and other foods need to be seasoned.


Who even likes bland chicken?

And, one more time, Latino does NOT mean Mexican.

Glad we cleared that up.

Cartels Are Trying Literally Everything To Smuggle Drugs Into The U.S.

CPB/WTVM

Mexican drug cartels have established themselves as some of the most successful criminal enterprises in the world. One reason for that? Creativity. Cartels have found some truly ingenious ways for sneaking drugs across the U.S.-Mexico border. Not all attempts are successful. Here are some of the more spectacular failures of the narco trade.

1. Between a rock and a hard place.

In June, officers from U.S. Customs and Border Protection seized 577 packages of marijuana found in what seemed like ordinary red rocks used for landscaping. After officers at the Otay Mesa cargo port ordered the cargo truck to go through a X-ray examination — followed by a more extensive examination — more than 1,600 pounds of marijuana were found hidden inside the “rocks.”

2. Burrito bust.

It takes a lot to not eat a bag of burritos, but a CBP canine in Arizona smelled something that caught its attention in May. It wasn’t the carne asada smell wafting through the air. It turns out a 23-year-old Arizona woman tried smuggling a pound of meth inside the burritos.

3. Snuck Suck it in.

Spandex one-pieces might help hide our lonjitas under a tight dress, but it didn’t work wonders for this teen. U.S. Border Patrol agents found four packages of heroin weighing a combined 3.85 pounds inside the 16-year-old Southern Californian’s beige spandex suit, trying to smuggle the stash across a Highway 86 checkpoint in SoCal.

4. There’s something in the agua fresca.

Hey! Agua de jamaica doesn’t have that smell. Last year, U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers at the Otay Mesa cargo crossing stopped a delivery truck from Mexico that listed natural hibiscus tea flowers as its shipment load. Once the shipment was offloaded and inspected by officers, they found more than 1,500 pounds of marijuana hidden inside the cartons of tea leaves. Busted! ? ? ?

5. The drugs weren’t the craziest part of this bust.

A female officer then had to remove the loaded firearm that had a full magazine of bullets in it. Craziest drug bust? Perhaps!
