The television panelist, Stephanie Veloz, used his social networks to ensure that Mexico is a sexist, racist and classist country, as well as standing up for the actor Tenoch Huerta, who fueled the controversy on the internet.

Through his Twitter account, Veloz launched himself against all those who have ensured that the country is not racist, arguing that there are specific cases in which it is verified every day that these behaviors are still valid in the social panorama.

The also activist explained that such behaviors can be observed in the offensive and degrading comments that characters such as the winner of the Ariel Prize in 2016, Huerta, receive every day; as well as the militant of the National Regeneration Movement (Morena), Gibran Ramírez, or the general secretary of the cherry party, Citlalli Hernández.

“The proof that Mexico is racist and class is the csystematic comments made to @TenochHuerta and @gibranrr. The proof that Mexico is sexist, classist and racist are the comments they make to @CitlaHM”, Wrote this Wednesday, December 29, Estefanía Veloz.

And it is that users of social networks made the name of Tenoch Huerta a trend in social networks and the main internet search engines, because the publication that the actor shared in which it became viral asked users to “leave your racist comments.”

His request was accompanied by an illustration by designer Wess Montoya, in which a dark man can be seen wearing one of the famous jackets with the phrase “Mexico is the shit (Mexico is the coolest)”; however, this was modified to read “Mexico is racist” Y “Mexico is tight”.

However, the actor’s claims did not remain there, as he also assured that “black” people are not a minority in the country, on the contrary, he explained that they are more than 80% of the total population, despite the fact that they have been invisible for decades.

“I think this is going to give them a lot of gutted courage … because we are 80% WE ARE NOT THE MINORITY, they are”

This is not the first time that Tenoch enlivens these issues, since last November was launched against shopping centers and places “fifís” which, according to their statements, they harass dark-skinned people. The protagonist of the first season of Narcos: Mexico indicated that this is due to the fact that the holidays will begin in the coming weeks.

The beautiful time of year has arrived in which the black ones will be followed in all the shopping centersYes, they will ask us for the purchase tickets and they will check the bags; they will ask if our debit cards have a balance and they will look at us with distrust every time we enter fifís places ”, the actor wrote through his official Twitter account.

Likewise, months ago the Mexican actor decided to express his opinion on the issue of racism, because through the YouTube channel, Extended version, with which he shares credits with the feminist activist Stephanie Veloz and the political scientist Pancho parra, published a video that exposed how a certain sector of society has been affected because of the racism that still exists in the country.

In this video, Huerta reported that in Mexico “more than 60 percent of the population considers themselves brown-skinned”, According to data from CONAPRED, despite this, in the media (mainly in the programming of Televisa and Azteca) white complexions abound
