    I am Ecuadorian and I think it is pertinent to start talking about racism in Ecuador, which pervasive and awful.

    As a white American woman who will be traveling in Ecuador around the dates of the festival, I’ve come to this article with questions similar to the author’s. I’m curious to see the celebration but I think without an understanding of the Afro-Ecuadorian perspective I’ll find it hard to enjoy. Echoing David’s comment above, I’d be grateful for any resources (forums, academic work, etc) that might give more insight into the country’s sociopolitical dynamics. Thank you for your critical contribution on this point.
