Ok, How Do We Make This “Ambiguous Latina Actress Support Group” Real?


If you’re Latina, there’s a pretty damn good chance that someone at some point has told you that you don’t “look Latina.”  Luckily, there’s a support group for that. Well. Kinda. Ok, it’s just a comedy sketch, but still.

Our only question is: where are the indigenous Latinas?! We barely get to see their faces or hear their stories in movies or on TV, either. (Oh, and when’s the next meeting?)
