So I ask Black America, how much money have you spent in Mexico. Well, I can tell you that they will never get another dime from me. The Mexican government issued a series of stamps depicting an exaggerated black caricature. The Mexican authority tried to say that this was just a stamp celebrating nostalgia… ain’t that a trip?
Activists in Mexico said the stamp was offensive but not unexpected.
"One would hope the Mexican government would be a little more careful and avoid continually opening wounds," said Sergio Penalosa, an activist in Mexico's small black community on the southern Pacific coast.
"But we've learned to expect anything from this government, just anything," Penalosa said.
Carlos Caballero, assistant marketing director for the Mexican Postal Service, said the stamps are not offensive, nor were they intended to be.
I am calling for a boycott of Mexico starting right now. Any vacation I though I would take in Mexico is officially dead. If Mexico won’t deal with its racist ways then maybe black America should help them by spending our money elsewhere. Hopefully, this is what people will call for soon. Now, excuse me while I go listen to some Public Enemy.
