"4.9%"

That’s how many speaking roles in Hollywood hits are going to Latinos. For the record, Latinos make up 16% of the U.S. population. Representation matters. (via micdotcom)

Even more alarming is that, when Latino actors are cast, they are by far more likely than any other group to be sexualized, either by revealing clothing or by being defined in the screenplay as attractive. Indeed, 36% of Hispanic actors are displayed in some sort of sexualized attire, the highest of any group looked at in the study. Hollywood seems to think America is not interested in stories about Latinos, unless they are taking their clothes off.

Let’s talk about this. Let’s talk about how most of those roles are to be hypersexualized maids, spicy armcandy love interests, and exotic criminals. Let’s talk about how many of these roles use stereotypes to make these characters as the butt of the joke. Let’s talk about though how most of those roles go to light skinned and white Latinas. Let’s talk about how shitty the representation that Latinxs do have is pretty much restricted to bullshit and biopics.
