Actress Gina Rodriguez has long had a contentious relationship with race, and by race, I say black people. She's publicly minimized the black experience on camera, expressing that she was disappointed that Black Panther didn't have any Latinx actors and disregarding that there were two Afro-Latinx leads, and then cried crocodile tears on a radio show when she was referred to as anti-black. To put the icing on the cake, she posted a video to her Instagram yesterday using the n-word while singing along to the Fugees' hit "Ready or Not."
What followed were two sorry attempts at apologies that even further proved that the star's deep-seated disdain for the community has no bounds. But as a black woman who's been trying to spread the word about Rodriguez's constant micro-aggressions for some time now, I'm fed up and frankly sick of her sorries.
