2. WOW.

The initial shock leaves you speechless.

3. Tell yourself to be chill.

Often times ignorance is best fought with silence. It’s not really your job to teach people the difference between race and culture.

4. Pull up a map…

A history book, and a ton of paciencia.

5. Ríete.

You can listen to stupid comments and make them feel stupid by convincing them they told a joke.

6. Give them the killer look.

All it takes is one look to cut through the heart. We got it from our mamá.

7. Give them the ‘bye Felicia’ treatment.

Their lack of respect doesn’t deserve your time.

8. Try hard not to laugh.

Te entendemos, someone’s trying to tell you you don’t look like… the very thing you are?

9. Prepare for battle.

If after your history lesson, your fictitious joke and even your killer look, they still don’t get it, you get ready for phase two.

10. Reza por su alma.

And hope they learn to use Google soon.

11. Get real because this IS what a Latina looks like.
