There are those times when our non-Latino friends can make comments that, under the wrong light, can be straight up offensive….or at the very least make them look extremely dumb. Do your non-Latino friends a favor, compárteles esta guía and save them from embarrassing themselves, or pissing the wrong vato off.

You totally don’t act like them.
Who’s them, exactly?
Say something to me in Spanish.
