Today's action is to listen to NPR podcast, CodeSwtich's recent episode, "What Does It Mean To Be Latino? The 'Light-Skinned Privilege' Edition." From the show notes:
"Maria Garcia and Maria Hinojosa are both Mexican American, both mestiza, and both relatively light-skinned. But Maria Hinojosa strongly identifies as a woman of color, whereas Maria Garcia has stopped doing so. So in this episode, we're asking: How did they arrive at such different places? To find out, listen to our latest installment in this series about what it means to be Latino."
