Aparicio wrote the article in Spanish originally but translated into English for obvious reasons and published in this way. In the article he refers to art, because Yalitza's column is part of a section in which various artists of all kinds gave their reasons on the subject: "Why does art matter?".

The actress, who won an Oscar in 2019 for her role as the protagonist in the famous Netflix film "Roma", decided to touch on the rugged theme that has been part of her journey to fame, discrimination against Mexicans themselves.

The young woman continued to address the issue that generated thousands of comments on networks: "Suddenly, people in my country of origin, Mexico, were talking about topics that have long been taboo here: racism, discrimination against indigenous communities and especially the rights of domestic workers, a group that has historically been deprived of their rights in Mexican society. "
Yalitza Aparicio is a great revelation because without being an actress, or an activist, or a journalist, an opportunity arose, she took it and is doing something good of it.

This reality that Yalitza talks about, was reflected in the comments on social networks, where it was attacked by some users. Although the comments are not long writings explaining their racism, they express quite a few words, like some mocking their way of speaking.
