    "When you say 'Latino comedian,' you're saying I can only perform for Latinos," says Iglesias in one of his stand-up specials. "Don't get me wrong. I know who I am, I know where I come from. But I believe Latinos should be shared with everyone. The reason I make a big deal about this is because – anybody else – you just call them by their name. For example, Jerry Seinfeld. He's just Jerry Seinfeld. He's not, 'JEWISH COMEDIAN, JERRY SEINFELD.'"

But I'm OK with that."
