bro this account is literally so bizarre ,,, acting like Afro-Greeks don’t exist lmao. There are literally Afro-Greek basketball players, singers, etc but yeah sure mock this shit cuz majority of Greeks are white
And just wanting the main character to not be white doesn’t mean white ppl are gonna be erased & even if there are no white ppl in the show um who cares ? go watch something else because there are plenty of things that have full white casts. Literally complaining about white Greeks not being represented accurately & completely ignoring the fact that there are colored Greeks. Your post is so valid op 🙄
PJO is a fictional world w/ shit that’s not even possible so yeah if we want colored Greeks/Greek Gods so be it. OP literally implying that the show should only have an all white cast which is literally taking steps backwards … like what point were they trying to make ?? they didn’t make any dunk ,, they just came off as very ignorant and ..yeah.. full of bs
don’t send them hate btw

Latino socialists in the United States are not a recent phenomenon. We would like to continue the rich tradition of socialism as carried out by numerous Latino groups over the years. One group in particular that has inspired us a great deal:
The Young Lords
First active in Chicago as a turf gang in the 1960s, the Young Lords were reinvented by Jose "Cha Cha" Jimenez in 1968 as a national civil and human rights movement, directly inspired by the Black Panthers and student movements in Puerto Rico. Self-determination for Puerto Rico and all “Third World” countries was a main focus for the group. Neighborhood development and control was another main focus of the Young Lords. In 1969 the NY chapter mounted the “Garbage Offensive” to combat the lack of sanitation services in East Harlem. The Young Lords also occupied the first Spanish United Methodist church to set up neighborhood programs like soup kitchens and childcare. Aside from the gains they made for their community, they also inspired a wave of creativity in Puerto Rican communities throughout the US. Pedro Pietri and other Nuyorican artists found inspiration in the Young Lord’s bold actions. Many of the problems Pedro talks about in this poem “Puerto Rican Obituary” are problems many Latinx workers face today, undocumented or not. (LINK: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=hB4QBiFEqgg&feature=emb_title) Although the group lost influence after years of COINTELPRO sabotage and interference, the Young Lords were ahead of their time. Alongside with the Black Panthers, Young Patriots and other organizations, and responding to Fred Hampton's call, they created the rainbow coalition.
