VIRAL VIDEO: If Latinos Said the Stuff White People Said

“Is it true that all white people have small, quiet families?”

Buzzfeed Yellow has struck again with another video that holds a painful mirror up to white people, and shows how white privilege causes white folks to say really stereotypical, racist and just plain dumb things to Latinos. The series has already lampooned whites with the “If Black People Said the Stuff White People Said” and “If Asian People Said the Things White People Said.” Every race has its own annoyingly repetitive tropes to deal with: for Latinos, it's often things like, “I love your accent,” or, from the spoof, “I hooked up with a white guy once. He was crazy!” There's always the,”if you went to a really good college it must be because of your race,” bit of offensiveness, too.

Watch, and if you recognize yourself, stop. Just stop.
