It’s like if Wonderwoman had maternity clothes.
Oh hey sorry if I get too nerdy, but didn’t Wonder Woman have a black twin sister in the 70’s comic books? Is this some kind of homage, or am I over thinking this way too much?
Nubia? Nah. It’s actually because I saw this and people complaining about the costume her the character being Latina so I decided Maya needed to dress like Wonder Woman. I dunno. She’s not ‘black’, she’s Puerto Rican.
I know what you mean! the US is a country full of different ethnics, its good to see ppl living there can tell the diference. The word you are looking for when you say she isnt black is “morena” 🙂
(Im from Argentina so I know its not an offensive word o.o)
yeah, might want to lighten up her skin-tone some… she looks way too much like an African-american girl.
you might want to go for the same skintone as this girl:
she’s obviously ethic, but she won’t get mistaken for a black girl on a regular basis. so basically, brown… but not brown like dark chocolate.
That would imply that African slaves weren’t taken to Puerto Rico and over Caribbean countries and left there. Or that they aren’t the largest minority still there.
Where America likes to do “African-American” people in other countries just consider them members of that country regardless of color. While technically Puerto Rico is part of America it still doesn’t stop them from considering themselves separate people.
I specifically mention that she’s Puerto Rican because she can speak Spanish and her family still follows much of the Puerto Rican Culture.
And an article from the same site you linked http://dimewars.com/Blog/ViewBlogArticle.aspx?vn=Lala+Vasquez+Tackles+Race%3a+%27Black+%26+Latina+Are+Not+Mutually+Exclusive%27&BlogID=0ac85477-130b-42c0-83db-b5a533eb078e
you say ;she’s not black, she’s Puerto Rican… okay? But you just mixed race with ethnicity. So she is black? Cause at first you say she isn’t and then you say she is and I am totally confused but anyway she’s a lovely character and I’m loving the dress.
She’d tell you she was Puerto Rican.
Fair enough, I’d say I was Dutch before I’d say I was Caucasian but my girlfriend would say she was black before saying she was from Curacao (she would then sing praise about Curacao like a maniac and does). I think you confused everybody by telling Annika that she wasn’t black when actually she is 😛
why don’t we just say she’s black puerto-rican, and call it a day? Or… african-puertorican? Is that even a thing? Incidentally, I have a black friend who hates the term “african-american”. She says “I’m not from africa, I’ve never been to africa. My family have been americans for generations. Calling us african-american is another way of excluding us from being regular americans”… or, words to that effect. Just a bit of viewpoint shiftin for ya there.
“Well not trying to get two of my friends into a relationship that’s for sure!”
