“I am who I am.”

The singer and actress was on HuffPost Live talking about embracing her identity as an Afro-Latina and making her way through Hollywood. It wasn’t until she was making her way through the business that people pointed out that she has a darker complexion than most Latinos people have encountered.

Her least favorite thing, being asked if she is white or black.

“Latinos come in all colors; all shades. Even in one family,” Milian said. “You should see my mom and her brothers and sisters. You’ll have a fair skin, a dark skin…same parents but we just vary in colors, shapes, and sizes.”

Afro-Latinos exist and it is time that they are recognized. Let’s hope people listen to what Milian has to say about being objectified and trivialized.
