Triggered Much ?

I actually like the Spectrum Mi Plan commercial.
I liked the music and the Bollywood actor/dancer/singer is hot so I went to YouTube to find out who she is?
Someone commented that the woman isn't really Latinx and that her vocals were dubbed.
Others stated that the commercial is offensive and filled with stereotypes.

Have minority studies programs created a generation of easily triggered llorones?

Maybe... but lets not be too quick to confuse being soft, easily triggered, or a snowflake, with simply being aware, fed-up, and willing to speak out rather than just accept things that shouldn't be accepted.

Maybe.
I was just talking to one of my friends about never being bullied. He said that I'd fight back if jumped or come back with better jokes if talked about. He said that I wasn't bullied because I may have been the bully.
We were taught in preschool that if someone couldn't do anything to us and if they couldn't do anything for us then we shouldn't concern ourselves with them.
Honestly, I think I'm oblivious when it comes to micro-aggregations because I so often have to deal with real aggressions.
