I like these vids, but Manny Santos was not portrayed as a Latina. IRL she is Filipino and Latinas pride latina AF shirt her parents in the show were Filipino as well. AND they were trying to throw her a Filipino debut for her 18th birthday in the show. Right message, wrong example.
Latinas pride latina AF shirt
The Philippines is named after King Philip II of Spain. The Spaniards colonized the PI and spread their DNA there dating back to the early 1500’s when Megellan landed there with his armada. Lots of Tagalog, Cebuana, and Zambotecan words come from Spanish. A person can be Latino regardless race too. So, I have to disagree and say that many Filippinos are in fact Latino. Latin culture started in Rome, and greatly refers to Spanish and Portuguese culture. Latin America was only named that after those countries sent ships with men and guns to find spices Latinas pride latina AF shirt and other resources to trade. Know your history hija. a purpose but that was a long time ago as rightly pointed out. I don’t particularly find this sort of thing offensive, as most times men do mean well, but I find quite cheesy to be honest. One of those awkward stereotypes
Totally agreed with all of this and its the same with Filipinos. We’re either seen as “spicy and exotic” or “submissive”. Also, Manny Santos (and the actress that played her) is filipina, not latina. She was one of the only filipinas I saw on western tv growing up, so I connected with her character a lot. In the video she says Portuguese born Brazilian actress, which is pretty accurate. She always considered herself Brazilian, she was raised there as a child. Hollywood heavily used her as the representation of latinas, so they did do their homework. In some ancient cultures there is more than two genders and you’re right it’s so sad how society determines what we’re supposed to wear how we’re supposed to talk how to behave! I really love your show
