It is so interesting when news of racism outside the U.S. reach the U.S., simply because it is a historically-charged, sensitive issue.
The outrage, as I understand it, has to do with the fact that the two maids in question happen to be black, which is, of course, unusual to many Latin Americans who are mostly used to hire indians as help.
My point: Should that picture featured a couple of indian maids (inditas as rich people would lovingly call them) wouldn’t make so many of us blink, would it?
Classism is kind of OK… but racism? God forbid!
