What do Antonio Banderas, Eva Mendes, Cameron Diaz, Enrique Iglesias, Roselyn Sanchez and John Leguizamo have in common? Well, we know they are all Hispanic but did you know all of their significant others are white? It’s almost a cliche these days but it seems that as soon as a Latino becomes a success in Hollywood they are no longer “down with the brown”.
Love is (color) blind and we here at the Robles & Rosado Show are in no way passing judgement on these talented and hard working actors and entertainers. What we are simply trying to do is understand why this phenomenon is so prevalent in the Black and Hispanic communities. What kind of message does this send?
Also on the show we discuss the impact of Sonia Sotomayor. The first Hispanic to serve on the U.S. Supreme Court sent a very clear message with her dissent in the Schuette v. Coalition to Defend Affirmative Action case: Race matters. Justice Sotomayor powerfully and effectively details why Affirmative Action is still vitally important for this country.
