  1. I can count the amount of Hispanic-American cartoon characters on mainstream TV on one hand, none of them are Puerto Rican, and one of them is this lady (voiced by Mike Henry, a white actor). In fact, I’m struggling to think of a single Hispanic character in ANY animated media, save for my namesake in My Little Brony (whose Hispanic heritage is touched on lightly, if at all), to actually be voiced by a Hispanic actor (and I’m guilty of vocal blackface, whiteface, orangeface...) Hispanic characters in media are often portrayed as illegal immigrants or drug dealers. Or both. On The Simpsons, we have a whopping TWO Hispanic characters—one of them is batcaveing Bumblebee Man, and the other one is Dr. Nick maybe. I don’t sound like cherryin’ Dr. Nick. I don’t know a SINGLE Hispanic person that sounds like Dr. Nick. AND he’s incompetent! But APU, the hard-working ladies man with a DOCTORATE in COMPUTER SCIENCE, is the problem? http://rainbowdash.net/url/872979
