A Letter To Netflix, Una Carta A Netflix

Listen to me, Escuchame

Posted on

My family, a proud family of Colombians have finally gotten a tv show. But, what is this? It's about DRUGS. Who's great idea was it to make a Colombian drug cartel series while politics revolves around IMMIGRATION. Don't you know this perpetuates the stereotype that all Colombians are drug dealers? I'll have you know Colombia is so much more than this and I am offended. I am an American, but before me came a proud alliance of Colombian born citizens that I call my family. I'm sad to say that this sounds entertaining, but is racist. It will only show what America THINKS Colombia is. What they won't see is my beautiful grandmother, the smells of the markets outside, the family orientated streets, and everything else that is beautiful about Colombia in general. Don't make my family out to be drug dealers, please, please, listen to me and stop this Netflix.

Mi familia, una familia orgulloso de los Colombianos finalmente han conseguido un programa de television, pero que es esto? Se trata de DROGAS. Quien es genial fue la idea de hacer una serie cartel colombiano de drogas, mientras que la politica gira en torno a la inmigracion. No sabes que esto perpetua el estereotipo de que todos los colombianos son los traficantes de drogas? Voy a tener que sabes Colombia es mucho mas que esto y me siento ofendido. Soy un americano, pero antes me vine una alianza orgulloso de ciudadanos nacidos en Colombia que yo llamo mi familia. Me entristece decir que esto suena divertido, pero es racista. Solo mostrara lo que Estados Unidos PIENSA Colombia es. Lo que no van a ver es mi hermoso abuela, los olores de los mercados, las calles orientados a la familia, y todo lo que es bello en Colombia en general. No hacer mi familia para ser traficantes de drogas, por favor, por favor, escuchame y detener este Netflix.
