Abstract

The uncritical appropriation of Eurocentric ethical paradigms can be detrimental to disenfranchised communities of color, especially the Hispanic community. This essay argues for an ethical methodology rooted in the hopelessness found within Latino/a marginalized communities. Advocating for an ethics para joder (screw with) disrupts a normative Eurocentric ethical discourse that at times normalizes and legitimizes “empire.” The essay begins by casting a critical gaze at the academy before analyzing the overall social context in which Hispanics find themselves.
