I’m interracial, and mixed, and growing up in Texas it wasn’t … I was a minority, in that sense. And just remembering not wanting — you know as a kid you don’t want to look different, you don’t want to stick out, you don’t want to be “the brown girl.” And so I used to always, I felt like I wasn’t ever ideal, in that sense; I didn’t have blonde hair and blue eyes. But as I got older, I wouldn’t want to be any different. I don’t want to be any different. I think my culture, and having the ability to experience both culture’s — my father’s and my mother’s — is awesome. (x)

I hate when white people start talking to me about their tans because at that point I have to do everything in my power to avoid the obligatory putting of their arm next to mine and saying they’re almost as “tan” as me

What does Hollywood typically get wrong about Latino portrayals? That we all walk around with a sombrero on our head, a jalapeño in our hand and a taco in the other one. That’s never been reality. We all are proud of where we come from, no matter what religion or culture we’re in. We all love our family; we all love our tradition. That pride does not go anywhere. But do we wear a flag on our shoulder? No. Are we always speaking Spanish and pregnant? No. That is so very far few and between, and that goes across the board. There is nobody exempt of going through hardships or going through success. What we get incorrect in this industry is that the Latino story is different than any other story. Or the black story is any different than any other story. We don’t want to only be limited to our world, or our skin color. We want to transcend. We want to be invited to the same party as everybody else. (x)

Here is a difference. Black/Brown/Yellow face is used to humiliate. White face is packaged in a bottle, marketed as a key for success and labelled Fair and Lovely. And it sells.

I used to think that I was black and white, and she was technicolour.

But then she told me that she felt the same way.
