The colorism she first faced was her grandmother inspecting her the shade of color of her skin to see if she looked more European or Indigenous (Anzaldúa 1983, 221). Colorism occurs when someone, generally darker skinned, is less desirable due to the shade of color of their skin within their own family. Anzaldúa faced this when she was called “muy prieta” and was told to stay out of the sun in order to keep her skin lighter. She was also shamed by her family for being openly sexual by being called “puta” and “jota (queer)” when she told them of her friends’ sexual orientation (Anzaldúa 1983, 227).

The stories of the mothers were practically in the same circumstances as the actual historical realities. But in the end, it was all to keep their family happy and alive, while the women endured their own suffering with no one to help them but

Ember my 4 years old was getting pushed around by her siblings. They kept saying that she was too young and small to play with them at beach soccer and no one wanted her on their team... She could have cried but she didn 't. Instead, she marched toward me and simply said: " Mom, you need to be on my team".
