22 April 2019. El-antirracismo-que-no-debe-ser-nombrado is a second video-poem she made, following a meeting with collectives, associations, entities and public institutions where the question of anti-racism was debated. The need to talk about 'anti-racism' in the actions and projects they were carrying out was debated, and it was pointed out as a radical word that incited confrontation and violence in a certain way. In the framework of an intercultural project that still has traces of assimilationist models, anti-racism was seen as something to be avoided.

Cristina makes this video as a response to what was discussed at this meeting, a response that she was not able to make at the time. She ends by alluding to 'anti-machism' and not feminism, which, far from being perceived as a comparison, has to do with the already quite normalised anti-machism and feminist struggle and the still (at least at the time) contested anti-racist struggle.
