There are a lot of culturally specific experiences Latinos can relate to especially since the large Mexican population in the U.S. tends to create overlap with other Latino groups in terms of what we are exposed to. Nearly all of us grew up watching watching Cristina, Walter Mercado, and Sabado Gigante on Univision. We all had mom’s who forced us to clean on the weekends and made us give up our rooms when they had “visitas.” Hispanic Heritage Month is right around the corner, but since we’re down with celebrating orgullo Latino all year long, here are some super relatable tweets about growing up Mexican!
I'm almost 21 years old, and my mom still chewed my ass out for getting a tattoo. #GrowingUpMexican 😂

My dad would rather pick me up from jail than have me come home with a tattoo on my body!
