Earlier this week MTV announced this year’s nominees for its Video Music Awards (VMAs) and one name you didn’t hear mentioned in the Best Hip Hop Video category was Scott Ramon Seguro Mescudi. That’s right, why would you expect a Mexican to be nominated in this category? But you did. Or more specifically, you heard the name of a blaxican better known as Kid Cudi.
You don’t hear much about blaxicans (or Afro-Mexicans if they live or were born in Mexico) but they do exist. I personally know two. And sadly, blatinos (black Latinos) are often overlooked or mocked in the universe of Hispanic media and marketing.
