If Latinas were over-represented in the way that white men are on television then this stereotypical representation of us would not present such a problem (though it’s still troublesome), but we are not and so it is of extreme importance that the roles for which Latinas are casted are not based on overdone and insulting stereotypes.
I have yet to see a Latina on prime time television I can relate to. Instead we have roles like those on shows in which you hold a broom and are “friends” with your rich, white employer. Oh, I can also play a “hot” woman with accentuated curves and a “sexy” accent dating a much older white man like Gloria on Wrong. Finally a role for a Latina I can relate to and she’s got to be pregnant?
