“Why am I so brown?” by Trinidad Sanchez, jr.
for Raquel Guerrero
A question Chicanitas sometimes ask while others wonder: Why is the sky blue or the grass so green?
Why am I so Brown?
God made you brown, mi’ja color bronce—color of your raza connecting you to your raices, your story/historia as you begin moving towards your future.
God made you brown, mi’ja color bronce, beautiful/strong, reminding you of the goodness de tu mama, de tus abuelas y tus antepasados.
God made you brown, mi’ja to wear as a crown for you are royalty— a princess, la raza nueva, the people of the sun.
It is the color of Chicana women— leaders/madres of Chicano warriors luchando por la paz y la dignidad de la justicia de la nacion, Aztlan!
God wants you to understand…brown is not a color…it is: a state of being a very human texture alive and full of song, celebrating— dancing to the new world which is for everyone…
Finally, mi’ja God made you brown because it is one of HER favorite colors!
