What It's Like Being A Light-Skinned Latina

"Wait, you speak Spanish? I seriously thought you were white"

Posted on

1. Once people find out you're Latina they will inevitably ask you to say something in Spanish.


Because 1) that is the the test of being a true Latina 2) they are apparently the judge of that.

4. Guys will say really lewd things around you in Spanish thinking you can't understand.


You picture yourself surprising them with a "lo siento, ¿qué dijiste?" and walking away only to stop yourself cause it's so not worth it cause they're gross.

8. You're used to being made to feel like you're not Latina enough.


Like when you walk into a Latino party and you're instantly pegged as a white girl or you enter the Latino market and see all the questioning looks.
