It's about time! Because being half Latina myself we were constantly left out! Everytime I looked at the magazine I would say "¿Dónde están las Negritas? Where are the Negritas?Cuando van a mostrar una gráfica con sus colegas Dominicana Arlenis Peña? Which means, When will they show a pictorial featuring her fellow Dominicana Arlenis Peña? My eldest daughter subscribes to that magazine and I might flip through one of her issues and that's about that because when I don't see the Afro-Latina in any Hispanic media, it tells me that she is also being excluded and her beauty is not beautiful or is being celebrated by European standards. And that is ditto for Brazil too.The same racial hatred that is practiced in America is practiced in the Hispanic culture also, don't be fooled.My Spanish is not so good but I do try. LOL!
I would love to see Arlenis Peña in the magazine also, she is beautiful.In Toronto there is a TLN channel (telelatino) and ever since I was young all the women on that channel would always be European they always excluded everyone else. This is why we need to create our own and "not feel" anyway at excluding people out. !!!!!!!
