I don’t think Latino and Hispanic actors and actresses are underrepresented

Diaz and Hanks

Steve Sailer and the NY Times think that “Latinos” are underrepresented in Hollywood.

So I found a list of the most popular actresses of 2013, and 20% of them (Cameron Diaz and Jessica Alba) are Latino.

Among male actors, Tom Hanks is Hispanic.

So you see, there are more Latino and Hispanic actors and actresses than you think.

    • Movies and TV rarely cast Hispanics with majority Indio blood because they lack stage presence. Even for the late-PC era, they’re too short, pear shaped, dumb and (unlike blacks) boring to be given screen time. If Hollywood doesn’t use almost full blooded Iberians to fill their diversity quota then they rely on Middle Eastern Hispanics (Salma Hayek, Shakira) or predominantly white mestizos like Alba.

      Keep in mind Latin American TV is filled almost exclusively with white or nearly all white actors. The few famous mestizo American actors there are, such as George Lopez or “Chuey” from Chelsea Lately, wouldn’t even be considered fit to so much as read the a local Mexican weather forecast.

  2. “Latino” or “Hispanic” is a stupid term which refers to language and history and not to race or ethnicity. When people think “Latino” what they mean is a mestizo with large Amerindian genetic ancestry. Cameron Diaz, despite her name, is white as white can be.
    There is a small but significant white elite in South America, and even though they count as “Latino”, they are not really.

Now try getting a Mulatto Hispanic like Sterling’s Mistress to do the same, and the experience and reception would be completely different.

    • To the extent that perception is true, it is because almost all Mexican immigrants are mestizo and almost all America’s Latinos are Mexican. But it is not true that whites are a minority in all of south america Argentina is mostly white, and so is Southern Brazil. Latino most certainly does not mean mestizo in Miami. In fact, the demographic terms used in local politics ( which are dominated by ethnicity) are Latino, Anglo, and Black. There is nothing wrong with the term “Latino”. The problem is American immigration policy that has favored mestizo Latinos from mexico to such an overwhelming degree, that many Americans don’t understand what the word means.

    • Yes, Antonio Banderas once spoke in front of a crowd of “Hispanic Americans”, where they awarded him with a prize for being “Hispanic”.

      And when it comes to “White” Hispanics from Latin America, Amerindian admixture is usually common. Spain and the Hispanic world view blacks as the lowest denominator, as with our Anglosphere tradition. However, unlike the English speaking world, mixed race individuals of other groups have significantly less of a stigma, the same goes with the Francophone tradition, which includes Montreal and Quebec city, where certain individuals show “Asiatic” features coming from the natives or perhaps from their East Asian demographic. Anglosphere nations explicitly believe in their delusional diversity and multiculturalism mantra, where they have yet to successfully fully integrate their non-White subjects.

    • Why is it a problem if people from Spain qualify as hispanic? Because a few might get affirmative action and whites should only be excluded and discriminated against? Plenty of mestizos put white down on their census forms. And blacks certainly have no problem calling hispanics white when it suits them i.e. Zimmerman. You can’t have it both ways.

    • The federal government uses “hispanic” for legal purposes for anyone with a Spanish or Portuguese surname. In their usage, hispanic has no racial or ethnic significance. In the eyes of the feds, Cesar Chavez, David Ortiz and Tom Hanks are all hispanic. But Tom had better not claim any affirmative action privilege because he will suddenly become white.

      However, if the issue is racio-ethnic then Hispanic means specifically people of Spanish and Portuguese descent. It does not mean Mexican, South American Amerindian or meztizo or the equivalent South American term.

      • Please, get your History right. Portuguese was already formed as a language, a variation of vulgar latin, way before Castilian (what people call Spanish nowadays) took form as a language. Neither is directly related to the other, although both came from the same origin: vulgar latin as it was spoke in Iberia.

        Marcio

        June 23, 2014 at EDT pm

    • But Spain was named after Hispania and Hispania is the entire peninsula. Lusitania was a province of Hispania. It seems the people who came up with the US term didn’t even know what the word means.

      Hispanic, as it’s used in the USA, may mean people from Spanish colonies in the Americas, but the word doesn’t mean “Spanish”, and if it did then it would be synonymous with the actual word “Spanish” which would be the right modern word to use: Spanish! It would create confusion with actual present day Spain, which the Spaniards wouldn’t like.

      The big question is: is this label really needed at all? If it’s linguistic label, then “Spanish speaking” is the more correct label. Those labels also seem to disregard the national uniqueness of individual Latin American countries and regard all Latin Americans as identical to Mexicans.

  10. http://www.nytimes.com/2014/06/21/us/on-immigration-the-hard-lines-start-to-blur.html?hpw&rref=us

    The story here shows clearly that once illegal immigrants have arrived here, there is little the communities can do for themselves and are gradually replaced. Federal policies and Liberal judges actually make denying benefits and rights (granted to American citizens) to illegals next to impossible.

    So we have a situation at the border, where women and children walk up to the border, and our border enforcement hands them a bus ticket to find their relative in the United States somewhere and are told to report back for their hearing somewhere in the distant future. While they are here, local and or federal law (created by Liberal judges) deny enforcement of local laws because they are somehow (discriminatory – like proving your legal status here). No connection is made whatsoever between letting people go as they please within our borders and not allowing enforcement of immigration laws. Once they are in the US, there is simply no mechanism for processing of illegal immigrants for deportation.

    Our laws have become nothing more than an inconvenience to anyone already here illegally, lacking an enforcement mechanism and liberal policy that actually hamper carrying out such law.

    In order to level the playing field for the 7 Billion odd people unfortunate enough to live outside the United States, I propose we allow unrestricted immigration for all 7 Billion people of this Earth. They shall not be harassed whatsoever by border enforcement, because that would be discrimination and we can’t have that. I’m sure the entirety of students and faculty at Harvard would applaud this decision as the right thing to do. Fairness and compassion demands our border be open to all.

  15. No. From what I understand unlike Anglo racists, Hispanics have a positive one-drop rule and are racialists: one drop makes you Hispanic IF you ‘ostentate’ your heritage. And they consider you White ( though not pureblood) if you’re Black but have a drop of of Iberian blood.

    They view Germans as basically non-white Asian barbarians. But Nigerians with a drop of Spanish blood are White. At least some do. Think about that.

    You’re Latino if born or descended from Latin Americans. You’re Latin if you’re South Greek, Romanian, Romansch, Italian, Spanish peninsula, or French. ‘Latinicity’ includes both.

    You’re Iberian if Spanish peninsula or Celt/Briton. You’re clan Iberic if you have connections to their clans, which include quite a few Hindu Brahman types, Hebrews, Persians, Chinese, Hungarians, Arabs, and Russians, not to mention Pilipinos.

    Hispanics et al. are a large 1/4th-1/3rd chunk of Western Civilization. Or as they put it, ‘our universal civilization.’

    • It’s interesting how you find a lot of self hating mulatto types in Latin America, who despise their blackness in favor of their Whiteness, despite their behaviorial propensity to act more black (rowdy, impulsive, sexually charged). A good example are the Dominicans in NYC, who dislike blacks and their culture, despite their black ancestry and non-civic minded behavior.

      The problem with Anglo society, is that Whites usually don’t want to breed or genuinely assimilate with their non-White subjects like the Hispanic and Francophone traditions. Nor are they very close to them, quite the opposite. Their main flaw is importing too many non-Whites into their domain, to make it even possible.

        “But the Spaniards were correct as what most alpha imperialistic and conquering men naturally do, breed with the women of their subjects. “

        You misunderstand the whole dynamic. Men may fornicate with strange women. But men don’t normally take wives from other groups if they can help it. The reason Spanish did and English didn’t was because the English brought women and the Spanish didn’t. It was similar among the Afrikaners’ Dutch ancestors. The first settlers were mostly men who had to take wives from among Southeast Asians, Chinese, Indians, Khoisan, and Bantu who had settled there. They were fairly mixed. But as more Dutch arrived they brought more women. They stopped going outside for women and became much more Dutch again. Today, the average Afrikaner is ~5% non European as a throwback to the earlier settlers.

        destructure

        June 22, 2014 at EDT pm

      • Destructure – Importing too many Asians can pose a set of problems which is different from those of NAMs. While Asians make better residents than blacks and Hispanics, their lack of civic engagement, contrasted with the rowdiness of NAMs, is also incompatible in Western countries. Further, Asian men, unlike their female counterparts, are not well sought after as mates in a Western context, and thus they would not be able to assimilate effectively.

        Vancouver in Canada seems to be the only city in the Western Hemisphere with a large Asian majority and a small White minority. It looks like another typical – East Asian metropolis with cookie cutter skyscrapers and a mass consumption culture, generally lacking in any vibe that you find in a city such as Quebec, which epitomizes European culture.

        JS

        June 23, 2014 at EDT am

      • @ JS,

        Whites still have a slight demographic edge over Asians in Vancouver, BC but that won’t last long. You probably notice the Asians more because the whites choose to live in the suburbs. Things have changed fast there. Back in the 90s Vancouver was still heavily majority white. On the other hand, even with or because of all the change it is now ranked no. 4 on the Mercer Index for the worlds most livable cities. Honolulu, which is majority Asian, is the United State’s most livable city according to Mercer. Way above NYC or San Fran (which is also high and has lots of Asians). What does that tell you about Asians?

        Back in the day Vancouver was considered a sin city; Las Vegas North, only better. You could drink beer in clubs there (unlike many American cities of the time and unlike Seattle even now) and the mens clubs had women taking showers on stage and swinging on trapezes. I’m guessing such stuff is standard fare in Las Vegas these days.

    • “You’re Latino if born or descended from Latin Americans. You’re Latin if you’re South Greek, Romanian, Romansch, Italian, Spanish peninsula, or French. ‘Latinicity’ includes both.”

      You have your history totally wrong. Latin-America has this name because it was colonized by “latinos”, not the other way around as you think.

      In most of the Romance languages (Portuguese, Spanish, Italian, etc…), “latino” means “latin”(the adjective), so what you said makes absolutely no sense. A “latino” is anyone whose language and culture comes com the Latin language and the Roman Empire. So Spanish, Portuguese, Italians, etc.. are “latinos” as well as the latin-americans.

      Do you know who invented the term Latin-America? Napoleon, the Third. He was trying to put a puppet Emperor in Mexico and decided to create a term showing how France was closer culturally to the Spanish and Portuguese speaking countries in the Americas. So he created the term. Yes, he considered France a latin country.

      Well, I know I’m wasting my time writing this. Americans have a hard time accepting that their definition of certain terms are wrong. Hispanic-americans tend to be the worst, because they cling to the this wrong definition of “latino” as their identity.

    The Clintons were only to happy to play the race card with impunity back in the day. One can see how the intense loathing they feel for the Obamas must stem from the knowledge that the weapon they regarded as their own can be turned against them in a way that they cannot even refute without confirming the allegation that they have a problem with black people.

    • Just shows how quickly memes change for the MSM depending upon tactical advantage. Clinton used to be hailed as our first black president. The problem for Clinton is that Barry is even more arrogant than he is and Barry likely did have the scores to enter Harvard even without the race advantage (or so suggests Sailer). Whether you like his policies or not, he’s no dummy and I’m sure he finds Clinton’s condescension annoying. Barry’s not unlike the old southern pols who were deeply annoyed at northern colleagues (like the Kennedys) looking down on their co-regionalists from positions of newly obtained status. It isn’t that they don’t realize their own possess some very apparent shortcomings, it is they don’t like others pointing it out or suggesting it by their behavior. And, don’t forget, Barry went to high school and was raised (probably Michelle too) by a distinctly better sort of people than was either Clinton.

  26. A topic for discussion:

    –> http://canecaldo.wordpress.com/2014/06/16/me-so-holy-evangelicals-love-you-long-time/

    Brazil is becoming whiter thanks to omnipresent Brazilian prostitution. My comments detailing the demographic history of the country.

    Brazilian Evangelicalism (both the impulsive native Brazilian and foreign U.S. American imported) has devious tactics. It supports modern, unbiblical Bible translations and it’s kind of hilarious that feminism has been trying to gain ground (with limited success so far) in Brazil.

    Socialism/Welfare transfers don’t work in Brazil because it’s a caste society with different ethnic and SES groups, so most people tend to be more local/regional and look out for their own. In addition, despite the 66% Brazilian illegitimacy rates, most practice cohabitation and live with their biological fathers/mothers, as well as the extended family such as uncles, aunts, cousins and others.

    Instead, the major leftist groups will try to use the Police state to their advantage since police go after the worst in North-Eastern Brazil (both kill and imprison criminals at high rates), and foreign leftist NGOs wanting to transport the scum to “better places” in Brazil thanks to some housing policy (which ruins the good places).

    The legalization of abortion in Brazil was because of “women right’s” in law, but the truth on the ground is that it will be mostly used for eugenic reasons (poverty, skin color, caste, economics), or the occasional relationship reasons such as infidelity/adultery.

    Brazil generally speaks Portuguese with little holdover from distinctive linguistic tribal languages and it’s ethnic demographics vary by region. Brazil is mostly Roman Catholic with 65% of the population (22% Protestant, 8% irreligious/non-religious).

    As a whole Brazil is 45% white Caucasian/Branco (white immigrants from Portugal, Italy, Germany, Poland, Ukraine, Syria, Lebanon), 45% mixed-raced/Pardo (children from male colonial conquistadores and their Amerindian/Black female slaves), 2% Asian (Japanese and Taiwanese Chinese immigrants) and 7.5% Black African (Negro) and 0.5% Amerindian.

    Black ancestry in Brazil typically came from Angola (Southwest Africa, very near Namibia and South Africa) and Mozambique (East Africa), so it’s more Southern and Eastern black, it’s rarely West African.

    Most Brazilian differentiates themselves through skin color, appearance and culture on a census, and while genetics isn’t typically referred, Brazilian genetics shows the average one to be predominantly white Caucasoid (as in >70% white).

    In genetics, the average Brazilian white ranges between 85 and 100% white (lots of white immigrants), whereas the average mixed-raced Pardo is about 60-80% white (a castizo, or a quadroon, thanks to excessive miscegenation). The only commonality in miscegenation is that the Y-Chromosome in the Brazilian population is generally white Caucasoid male (as in 90-95% white male on the Y-Chromosome line).

    In general, Brazil is a 2nd world country with a working class to lower-middle class atmosphere, and it’s not the 3rd world as some would imagine it. Remember that there is a huge difference between the North and the North-East.

    While the North possesses 45% of the geography, it only has 16 million habitants and the lowest population density. The non-white side is more Amerindian in the North (65% pardo, 25% branco). It’s a humid and hot climate (24 to 26 Celsius on average during the year).

    The North-East has 49 million inhabitants, and 18% of the national territory, and the non-white side there is more African (62% pardo, 30% branco). It’s a tropical climate (20 to 28 Celsius on average during the year).

    The Center-West region has 14 million habitants and 19% of the national territory (50% branco, 45% pardo). It’s a tropical climate with heat and heavy rain (above 18 Celsius in the winter, above 25 Celsius in the summer).

    The Southeast has 77 million inhabitants and 10% of the national territory (60% white and 30% pardo). It shows both tropical and subtropical climate patterns. The South is 7% of the national territory, has 26 million inhabitants (80% white, 16% pardo) and shows subtropical climate.

    While the Northeast has the third highest GDP after the South and the Southeast, trust me that the North and the Center-West are much better places to live and have higher living standards than the Northeast has. Brazilian prostitution is heavier in the North and the Northeast by the way.

    By living standards and Human Development Index (HDI):

    Northeast – HDI 0.653 or Medium
    North – HDI 0.683 or Medium
    Center-West – HDI 0.753 or High
    Southeast – HDI 0.753 or High
    South – HDI 0.756 or High

    The poor favela people you see in major Southeastern cities such as Rio de Janeiro or São Paulo were all originally from the Northeast. They moved from the Northeast to the Southeast and started ruining the place. Since Brazilian population is estimated to be 200 million, 16 million (North) is just about 8% of the country, so the infamous notoriety should be with the North-East in reality.

    Just 6% of Brazilians (around 12 million out of 200 million) reside in favelas. The average Brazilian pardo is in reality a quadroon/octoroon genetically (like >75% white Caucasian) but often foreigners don’t realize this factor because black genetics are the hardest to “whiten up” in comparison to the Asian (presently stable) or even the Amerindian (degenerated Asian) and often the ancestry needs to dip into the single digits (like between 0% to 10%) before one starts “passing”. Still, Brazilian prostitution (in the North and the Northeast) does accelerate the “whitening process” to some level due to the amount of white male genes (both from native Brazilians with white immigrant descent, as well as foreign white tourists) being introduced into the illegitimate children. There’s also some introduction of pale Asian (Japanese) male genes, but it’s not as generalized and it’s much less.

    • It would have never occurred to me to imagine that visiting white males were having unprotected sex with Brazilian prostitutes in sufficient numbers to affectd the population.

  27. Like I mentioned beforehand, the North region (Amazon land) has the lowest population density for such a large territorial size. Since it’s only 16 million, and about half of them are women, 8 million is a small number and heavy foreign sex tourism does affect that area.

    Since the number of Brazilian births have decreased to about 2-3 on average, then the native Brazilian population in the North region will decrease to about 10-12 million, and 5-6 million women up for grabs is even a smaller population density. So yep, foreign sex tourism is definitely affecting that place.

    In addition, the Center-West Region has 14 million people, and while sex tourism doesn’t affect it as much as the North and the Northeast, 7 million women is another small number. When it decreases to 12-10 million, 5-6 million women is easier to affect.

    I’m not saying that all Brazilian women are prostitutes. I’m just stating that smaller populations (particularly North and possibly the Center-West Region) are going to start feeling the effects of prostitution in the next decades. Guaranteed.

    Brazil receives about 7 million international tourists per year (and of course not all of them are sex tourists), but when one start crunching out the numbers, I start feeling like my imagination wasn’t running wild and that it was accurate when examining the low population densities of the North and the Center West for Brazilian women.

    Mixed-raced pardo Brazilian women in the North and Center-West tend to have sexual relations with both native mixed-raced Brazilians in addition to foreigners, so they’re not ignoring either and accepting both. That might explain the high illegitimacy/cohabitation rates (which is around 66%).

    Another note: most Brazilians place a huge premium on appearance/looks rather than genetics. I talk a lot about genetics, but most Brazilians talk about skin color, nose shape, eye shape, hair texture, body shape and whatnot.

    But the hilarious thing is that for a person to look white during miscegenation, thanks to the African component, the Caucasian genes must be stronger. That’s why looks are so important.

    I have compared pictures of Brazilians to their autosomal results on various Human Biodiversity websites. The thing is that for a Brazilian person to look “white”, that person has to cross the 90% white line and be at least consistently 95% white because Sub-Saharan African mixture is that stubborn.

    Remember that the Y-Chromosome is 90-95% white on the male component. In other words, lots of white dudes spreading their genes throughout the Brazilian population increased the autosomal results as well.

    I’ll concentrate more on phenotype for now since that is Brazilians the most on, and correlate that to 3 common Brazilian looks with three famous names. Three typical Brazilian looks are 70% Caucasian vs. 90% Caucasian vs. 100% Caucasian (and the input is typically white male).

      Spain became a strong nation, because they ruthlessly forced non-Christians to become Catholics and speak Castilian or else they had to leave the country. Jews were forced to convert and many of them did to the point where each successive generation of Jews became more Spanish, where they completely forgotten the culture of their ancestors and even began to mock it.

      However, with the Islamic tide being strong, the Spanish Christians had to completely exiled their Muslim population, although many of them became Christians. The Spaniards understood that multiculturalism with competing tribal interests weakens a country at all fronts.

  31. The article is obviously implying that identifiable minorities are underrepresented. What is unstated is that people like to watch their own and have a weak-to-strong aversion to watching ‘not their own’. White liberals don’t watch all-black movies, for the most part, unless they star an implicitly white token minority, usually a comedian, amongst a white cast. Awake white conservatives actively avoid productions that are minority focused or subversively multicultural. As far as Hollywood is concerned, the reason that movies don’t push multiculturalism to a further degree is because of the mechanism above, and because they care about money just a little more than they do about social politics. As soon as the NAM movie-going population reaches a tipping point, you will see films begin to showcase NAMs to a greater degree.
