Has the Latina Spectrum gone wangsta?
Has our beauty complex returned to the King Kong days? I was just thinking how there are no black (as in dark skinned) women in Latina magazines. The last and only black actor I’ve seen in a Spanish soap opera was in “Andres” and I was in junior high then (I’m a junior in college now). Do we value light, blond, and skinny over our natural round, brown, brunnettes? Do we reject the various shades and shapes in the Latino spectrum? Do we try to emulate a culture we’re not?
