Role Reversal: White Actors Asked to Act More White by a Latino

Can TV & Film become More Diverse?

So how exactly do you act more white? Is it, like, a total, like, valley girl, like, you know? Or like… uhmm, a frat guy, bro? How about them waves, dude?

Stereotypes, right? Well, that’s exactly how Latinos feel when every single one of the stereotypes — you know, the lazy one, the gangster, the feisty one — is played on TV. So in an effort to get the point across as to how Latino actors feel when they’re asked to act more Latino, .Mic and Guatemalan actor Arturo Castro held a fake audition where they asked white actors to act more white.

“Can you act more caucasian? Really round those vowels. Just act more white. We really need a white girl,” Castro requests.

And GUESS what one of the actresses says? “It seems a little stereotypical.”

EXACTLY.

The MOST Extreme Bike Ride Happened in Peru (No Llamas Were Hurt)

When you think Peru, you probably think Machu Pichu. But there is SO much more to the country where even altitude sickness can be deadly for tourists. BMX bikers, Aaron Chase, Chris Van Dine, Ali Goulet, Katie Holden and Rich Van Every take us on the wildest of rides down the country’s mountains with a GoPro. You better hold on!

“These mountains go forever and ever and as we’re going up, the mountains are going up,” one of the bikers said. “When we get up to these ruins… it’s a lost world up there and we’re rediscovering it on our bikes.” And they don’t only rediscover ruins, but also Peruvians who welcome them with open arms.

As they ride down the mountain to the city center, one biker puts everything in perspective: “Anyone who makes it out alive is like a brother.”
