THE PEREZ SISTERS BANNED!
Our own people censor and cancel us. This is not ok.
Family, let us tell you a little story.
We set out to be a participant with this years Puerto Rican Day Parade located in Sunset Park Brooklyn. All we wanted was to celebrate with our gente, our beautiful culture and música and our accomplishments as Cafecito Break.
Initially, all was going smoothly….until we received an email and got REJECTED!
POR QUE you ask?
What do we represent? Critical thinkers, wellness mentors, freedom loving Latinas.
It is an insult to have been belittled as such. This is discrimination to have been denied based off political ideologies.
Puerto Ricans have always held different political and lifestyle views. This has never stopped us from gathering and celebrating all of who we are.
We intend to use this opportunity to talk about issues plaguing our communities such as cancel culture, divisiveness, political, social, and cultural bias. It is time that as a community we seriously start these conversations, address these behaviors and hold people accountable.
We can not afford to continue to have gate keepers in our communities that are capable of effecting change, healing and progress from holding community back.
More to come.
Tune in Thursday night 9pm - Cafecito Break Rumble for The Perez Sisters Video Podcast.
Gracias for the love, support, encouragement.
Let’s do this with class. This is a teaching moment.
