THIS, ALL OF THIS!

“A resort is a neo-colonial extension of western capitalism, consumerism, and excess. It’s a space where stereotypical cultural pleasantries and north american amenities do a hell of a job of tricking people into thinking they are authentically experiencing and interacting with the “other”. I would trade away my bed being made with a chocolate kindly left on the pillow to not witness old white people slip into colonial nostalgia, calling grown ass male wait staff “Boy” and phrasing the beginning of requests with “fetch me”. I know the pina coladas and Jamaican sun got you open Susan but the pool boy doesn’t actually belong to you boo.”
