That's like assuming a tall person plays basketball or a that a skinny person hates cake.

3. If you take a Spanish language class, other students will look at you dumbfoundedly and ask, "Why?"

Because I want to learn/improve my Spanish. Is that so hard to understand? Also, don't give me grief about getting a B-, either.

6. Getting weird looks when you announce that you don't like spicy food.

Contrary to popular belief, not every Latino grew up eating spicy food. And even if they grew up in a household that served a lot of spicy meals, that doesn't mean they enjoy that kind of food now.

8. You're sometimes/often embarrassed because it took you so long to try foods other Latinos grew up with.

Why was the world of pupusas and cemitas kept from me for so long? WHYYYYYYYY?

13. Dealing with people who don't believe you are, in fact, Latino.
