9 Aziz Anzari’s Jokes That Totally Hit Home For Latinos

From little problems with our family at home, to larger problems across the film industry, Aziz Ansari’s original Netflix series, “Master Of None,” totally relates to the Latino community. Here are a couple scenes that definitely touch home:

As first generation children, we take every moment possible to thank our parents for their sacrifices.❤️

Yet it feels like everything we do will never be enough to repay them.

However, that doesn’t stop our parents from lecturing us about how their childhood was so much more difficult than ours.

Although we don’t want to admit, we know our childhood is a breeze compared to our parents’ and sometimes we don’t fully realize and appreciate that.

Dev also understands the struggle of having to help our parents with technology. ?

And it isn’t easy. ?

No matter how many times we try to teach them, sometimes it’s helpless.?

Technology is a completely different language to our parents, and we’re pretty much their translators.

In addition to Dev’s parents, “Master of None” also gives us Denise and Rachel:

They completely understand that women are constantly objectified.

They both give us a taste of the type of oppression women experience on a day-to-day basis.

Denise and Rachel give us the raw truth: women are not treated equally. This is seen clearly in the Latina wage gap across the U.S.

In regards to the world of entertainment, “Master of None” portrays the issue of minorities being given stereotypical roles in films.

When auditioning for the role of an “unnamed cab driver,” Dev is asked to do an Indian accent and is then kicked out of the audition because he refuses to do the accent. So is he not “Indian enough” for the role of a cab driver?

Dev talks to his friend about this audition and points out: “Isn’t it frustrating that so much of the stuff we go out for is just stereotypes? Look I get it. There probably is a Pradeep who runs a convenience store, and I have nothing against him, but why can’t there be a Pradeep just once who’s, like, an architect, or he designs mittens or does one of those jobs?” – “Master of None”

This same issue is seen amongst Latinas in the film industry:

It’s time to stop casting Latinas as hot-headed, sexy, maids.

What if you were told you weren’t “Latina enough”? 

After his awful audition, Dev highlights the issue of Indians being underrepresented in films:

There are white, non-Indian actors that often play the roles of Indians in films.

And the underrepresentation of Latinos in the film industry is just as problematic. Remember when Ben Affleck was cast as Tony Mendez in 2012’s “ARGO”?

Unfortunately, “ARGO” has not been the only film with white, non-Latino actors being cast as Latinos.

Did You Accomplish Your 2016 Resolutions? If Not, These Memes Will Make You Laugh About It

Every year we try to better ourselves, which is why we come up with new years resolutions. But maybe your 2016 resolutions didn’t really turn out exactly how you wanted them to. Time to be honest about these 2016 resolution expectations VS. reality. ???

You told yourself you were going to start a diet, go to the gym every single day and lose 30 pounds by the end of the year!

But let’s be real…

15219608_1681294568837645_852642832051235305_n

It’s like you had jinxed yourself by trying to make super good resolutions.

Even your grandma knew you were kidding yourself.

15621766_1693173577649744_8635170698371389985_n

One plate? More like one plate plus seven.

And this is what it came down to at every family gathering:

14721682_1666629976970771_8984501218653483183_n

You already knew you weren’t losing any weight and you didn’t need anyone else reminding you about it.

You probably also made it a new years resolution to eat more healthy. You know, meal prep every week, no more junk food and fatty snacks, instead more fruits and vegetables.

But in reality, it went a little something like this…

15319174_1689449264688842_65695872476644932_n

More greens? No problem!

At least you took your doctor’s nutrition advice seriously right?

14717095_1659406151026487_892014761514569188_n

Okay, maybe you cheated your way around it.

Somehow you had to convince yourself that you were eating healthy.

13900320_1632832170350552_5629447073107180657_n

It’s not like you weren’t eating any greens at all.

I mean at least you were trying.

14317371_1648816422085460_3517619437941707278_n

It’s considered a diet if you order a DIET coke right??

You even made the resolution to drink less alcohol. Less beers and margaritas, more water and tea. Less bars and clubs, more hiking and swimming.

But that quickly backlashed…

13925000_1630180377282398_192082969840766024_n

Just one little shot.

You THOUGHT you were making progress.

14079703_1639249416375494_9061983125636748122_n

Just ONE.

But every time you went out, it was the same thing:

13925067_1631024333864669_170957104688626374_n

Yeah right you weren’t drinking. HA.

You also made it your goal to save money this year. It was time to really cut down on unnecessary spending and save up.

BUUUUUT….

14590403_1656385944661841_6934309859173172425_n

Oh si eyeliner on fleek, pero comiendo sopa de maruchan.

All year you just kept convincing yourself that you deserved to spend a little money on yourself.

13599927_1614786178821818_1575099160959394887_n

Your bank account was like “no mames. Ya parale.”

And now you’re like:

14199413_1642039646096471_1221958101942875485_n

But who told you to go on 500 “treat yo self” shopping sprees?

So if anyone asks about how you’re doing with money, your response is:

14344977_1648968888736880_3830664223641491124_n

Broke AF.

For 2016 you also made it a resolution to work on your love life. It was time to get out there, meet new people and go out on more dates.

And this is how that resolution turned out…

Love life my a**. ?

This is what your summer romance turned out to be:

13729159_1622935121340257_5989886612870883629_n

?

So at every family party, it was the saaaaame question:

15492067_1691169737850128_4102129571911836864_n

So. Annoying.

Entering 2016, you also told yourself you would stop crying over stupid boys. They’re just not worth it.

With the support of your friends, you thought you totally had this under control.

14117786_1636535463313556_3289891288676379149_n

Yassss.??

But in reality you were like:

14993547_1677199395913829_1814818459158708366_n

So much for moving on.

In efforts of trying to be a better son or daughter, you also thought it would be a nice resolution to help your parents out more often with whatever they needed. They deserve it after everything they’ve done for you right?

But then you got lazy.?

14462985_1651350151832087_8939655463415681691_n

Limpiar?? Ehhhhh…no thanks.

Even something as small as helping wash the dishes seemed impossible.

15095607_1678761982424237_317132219452060675_n

Please, no.

For 2016 you also told yourself you would stay away from gossip- to only focus on yourself and not other people’s business.

But as soon as you heard some gossip, you were like:

15338658_1687031958263906_8903018962350845296_n

Um did you say chisme?

Like what’s a good conversation without juicy chisme?

14022248_1637070163260086_7501589053080276690_n

It was like a giant conference meeting you couldn’t wait to go to.

You just couldn’t stay away from it ?

13508842_1613408908959545_4804968200495186481_n

Especially if your friend had screenshots, you for sure knew the chisme was going to be good.?

Overall, your new years resolution for 2016 was to get your life together. In your mom’s words, “Ponte las pilas!” So no more being lazy. It was time to hustle hard and get sh*t done.

But that didn’t exactly work out…

15181642_1679594619007640_3032101295130138839_n

Pilas nowhere to be found.

2016 didn’t work out at all.

13891984_1627601024207000_8868634891087792151_n

Worst year ever.

So all throughout 2016 it was the same old crap…

14915401_1676827585951010_7512439872970133546_n

But it’s okay, there’s always next year right?
