The oldest sterotype in the book. We’re as blond as Anahí and as golden as Celia Cruz and everything in between. There’s no such thing as looking Latina enough.

We devour spicy food.

Not even all Mexicans can handle the spice.

Spanish is our dominant language.

We sound like this when we speak English.

We’re from all over Latin America, hence the term Latino/a.

Not conforming to these stereotypes doesn’t make us any less Latino.
