It is about embracing who you are. What are we talking about? What we are talking about is culture. Culture will not go away. While interracial relationships raise concerns for some people, some are embracing it, getting married and even having children mainly because they see the person for who they are on the inside, not on the outside.
Yet in Hollywood and other big cities, the paparazzi and other critics are having certain actors and actresses choose which race they want to be represented as. A celebrity or anyone for that matter should not have to choose which race they want to be, but be represented as someone who embraces all the races that they are.
Below is a representative list of celebrities that are Afro-Latinos and doing a lot of good that sometime may go unnoticed by others.
Musician Esperanza Spalding plays the bass, oboe, violin and clarinet and beat out two men for the Best New Artist at the Grammy Awards. Moreover, her mom is Welsh, Hispanic, and Native American, and her father is Black.
Naya Rivera is Puerto Rican, African American and German descent, but plays a Lesbian on television and she has become a role model to young gay women.
