THE SHIFT IS REAL: HOW THE HISPANIC POPULATION IS BECOMING THE MAJORITY

the new nation

The United States is going through a massive cultural shift. And that shift is involving the Hispanic population becoming the majority in the future. That means that the country is starting to change especially the language in the country. And when that happens you’re talking a lot of people stand a chance of being upset. The reason being that we are used to a certain way of life in the United States. And now the Hispanic population is supposed to represent the change that so many are against. Now notice I said supposed to represent. There are many different groups who come from around the world, but the Hispanic population is so close. So they are seen as this reason for so many of our problems in this country, whether crime or employment.

the color construct deconstructed

America is not the only country in the Americas that have a history of colorism. But living here we are so closed off from a diverse experience. Yes, we have cities like New York and Miami, but for the most part America is rural. And when you are not connected to the world you judge based on outer. Problem is, the Latino population comes in different physical representations. Now, notice I switched and said Latino. When looking at the numbers we combine the two, so Puerto Ricans would be considered Latino, but Mexican Hispanic, yet they are combined. Once that happens you now have people who have a wide range of looks from European to African. And in America you will be excepted or rejected based on color. Only thing is, the numbers are growing in part as a result. We as Americans want to pin point a Hispanic/Latino man or woman based on the physical. And as a result this is one way they will actually become the majority.

the blame game

We need someone to blame for the reason our lives are in the position it is in. So the Mexican community have become the face for the problem. Too many Black people are underprivileged to blame and the Native American groups is far too small at this point. Now, the reality is that technology is changing the way our country operates. A lot of the jobs that the Hispanic are working are more physical jobs that a lot of people in America are not trying to work. So they are be targeted from an “idea” that jobs are being taken, not really being taken.

DATE NIGHT: THE NEW ERA OF DATING

“Whose in charge of what?”


boy the times have changed

In today’s society the landscape of dating sure has taken a turn. It’s a far cry from what dating was like in our parents or even grandparents generation. You had a courting process that could take as much as a year or more. Today people are know to have sex in the same night that they meet. And I am just trying to understand, if the end game is having a long lasting relationship, does hooking up so soon work itself out. Some people argue that it does not matter while those with more life experience will say it is a big mistake to go into something so intimate so soon.

boy meets girl, sometimes

Times have also changed regarding who asks out who on a date. Still for the most part it’s guys meeting the girl. But there have been a wave of women asking guys out on dates. Now, it is still fairly new, but it has been a trend over time. Today’s women feels there should not be any restrictions on who ask who out on a date. I will caution women, that when you are more into us than we are into you, you could be running into some problems. So if this is a pursuit for relationship, then it could mean that he is the prize. So, now you become the constant hunter. Because as much as you think as a woman you are under control you really aren’t in control.

what is to come next

For the future to come, who knows what will be the next move forward. If only you knew that, there is a lot of money to be made. Why, well, people have been busy because individuals have to work more today. So the time spent dating is tough. And with the advent of all these dating apps, what will be the tech move to bring people even closer together?

NOT WHAT I GREW UP ON: THE WAY DRESSING STYLES HAVE SHIFTED

“I wish I understood.”


what a strange dressing style

I look at the styles from fashion and the first thing I think is I know I could have designed this outfit. Because o me I always thought fashion was this luxury and classy style with a little sexy flare. But today it just seems that everyone is going for who can look the poorest. Like people went to a trash can and found outfits typically worn by men and women sleeping in the street and thought, why not attach a large price tag to this. And yes, people are truly buying these items. These products are fetching for price tags in the thousands of dollars. But what has happened in our culture of fashion this has become the trend on the runway?

disturbed or trying too hard

People have this mind frame today where they are the disturbed and troubled artist. But when you look at it for what it is, they are far from disturbed. In fact, they are just people in their right mind trying to feel as if it makes them someone by feeling crazy. And the problem with this is that our culture has become addicted to having a troubled mental capacity. Because those who are truly disturbed try everything to keep from being this type of person. They create things that are the opposite to keep from being in that mental space. And then you have the people who are just keeping up with what everyone else is doing. These people years ago used to be called posers. But to me if you want to dangerous, be dangerous. They dressed like they have nothing, then go into their comfortable coves.

i still love the classics

Say what you want, but I love the former looks. I love when you look at something and say to yourself, “I cannot afford that, and I could not create that.” Anything that makes me go I do that is not amazing. I just don’t feel it is special when anyone feel they can get into it. You should look and say to yourself, this is too much for me. You should feel like you have to leave the planet and fly to a far away place to be that good. But not today, today is totally different.
