Gina Rodriguez Misleads Fans About Her Ethnicity?


Latina actress Gina Rodriguez claims her father is dark skin Afro-Latino after she's accused of anti-blackness...

This week Gina Rodriguez addressed claims that she is anti Black telling Sway in the Morning,
"The Black community was the only community I looked towards growing up. We didn’t have many Latino shows and the Black community made me feel like I was seen, so to get 'anti-Black' is to say I’m anti-family. My father is dark-skinned. He is Afro-Latino … It's in my blood. So it was really devastating to me."
The gag is Gina's dad is NOT dark skin.

John Henrik Clarke, Black people we have NO friends. If you want a friend look in the mirror.
There is no such thing as a black and brown unity. Some black folks need to realize this.

The only thing dark on him I see is the tooth decay inbetween his teeth.

@4:16 That is not considered dark in the Latin world. He looks like the average "hispanic" person. He wouldn't be considered Black or Afro-Latino in any Latin country.

I thought black people come in many shades though ijs cause my parents are both darker than me and only 1 grandparent was light skinned. Im not afro-latino just your average black girl. I think that through the redness in his skin that he is of a darker complexion.
