The Golden Globes Can’t Tell Gina Rodriguez And America Ferrera Apart


There aren’t a lot of Latinas on American TV, let’s face it. I could count them on one hand. Two of the biggest and most recognizable are Jane the Virgin‘s Gina Rodriguez and America Ferrera. America Ferrera was on hand this morning at the Hollywood Foreign Press Association to help announce the Golden Globe nominations. The HFPA’s official Twitter mistakenly identified America Ferrera as Gina Rodriguez. Twice. Apparently, even though they are super famous it isn’t enough to keep the two apart. Because, you know, Latinas all look alike. It’s bad enough that they can’t tell them apart once but to do it twice and not apologize for it. That’s pretty low. It just goes to show you how little they take Latino stars seriously.

This would not happen if it was Jennifer Aniston and Gwenyth Paltrow. We are at best seen as token ethnics hired to fill a void, but not to be put on the same level as other Whiter stars. This really bothers me. It just goes to show that we have a long way left to go, my friends.
