An sketch of something I've been wanting to do for a while.
Is based on the context of my country, Chile:
Chileans like most of America are mixed race, we are mostly the product of Spanish people and the many diverse indigenous tribes that were here (most of them are now gone, all what remains are a few descendants)
Chileans are 50% percent white and other percent has dark skin, like our indigenous ancestors, but even so, Chile has always been pretty xenophobic and racist. There's a lot of praising of anything European or North American, but a lot of despising of people from other american countries, specially Peru, Bolivia and Argentina.
But as time went by Chile has started to get more and more immigrants, specially since the begging of the 21 century and among them a lot of ethnicities that weren't seen before here.
And the problem is that Chile has revealed to be, besides of xenophobic, racist, specially againts black people.
Is amazing how much they blame and hate on black people of anything wrong here, specially Colombians, some fear Chile will "get darker"
SO WHAT IF CHILE "GETS DARKER"????
People are fluid, race is fluid, we are all mixed, period, no race is better than the other.
Those children born here are Chilean and there's NO wrong with it.
Is amazing there's people who can't get that
