1. Latinas can be black

 

Itís an ethnicity not a race. Amara La Negra, Gina Torres and Celia Cruz (from the grave) say hi. As does my late Afro-Cuban grandmother. If they mean why does it need to be an African-American woman, they need to say so. They donít because they like having this idea that all Latines look somewhere between JLo and the woman from Modern Love.

To my knowledge, there are no prominent Afro-Latines in politics. If there are, Iím sure theyíll be on the shortlist.
If I were to vote in a presidential
primary today, I would vote for:
Joe Biden
