Shit White Girls Say to Latinas: VIDEO
Yes, the shit people say meme is going beyond its expiration date.
But, after viewing one video too many we've come to an understanding about the genre: The performances are often the most polite way ever of both making fun of a-holes (see Shit Westsiders Say) and shooting down stereotypes.
The meme is very millennial -- as in the generation:
It's not in-your-face or Occupy-your-stereotypes. It's DIY, subversive, indirect, viral and a little passive-aggressive.
Folks aren't leaving a note on your windshield to tell you you're being insensitive or even racist. They're having a laugh.
In "Shit White Girls Say to Latinas," actor/director Christina Igaraividez dons a blond wig and goes through a litany of white-girl-isms that seem harmless on the surface but clearly hurt a few feelings.
Hey, chica! Where were you born? Do you go tanning?
After "Shit Girls Say" (featuring Juliette Lewis!?) kicked off the genre last month with a lighthearted take on, well, shit girls say, a door was opened to several African-American responses and reprises.
The videos put stereotypers on notice while also exposing youth culture's mores.
So take "Shit White Girls Say to Latinas" as a checklist of things not to say to Latinas ... if you're a white girl.
