The novela-esque show, , perpetuates the stereotype of the Latina domestic, created by a white man, Marc Cherry, but of course with the support of Eva Longoria because if one Latina supports the premise of the show (and gets paid for it) then clearly the entire community is OK with it, or rather blinded to the blatantly racist premise of the show. Instead it portrays us as little more than domestics at the mercy of “oh-so-kind” rich white people– domestics who are lucky if they catch the eye of an attractive, wealthy (and more often than not white) man.
The stereotype of the Latina domestic is an old tale retold way too many times and almost always by a white person.

Jane, “the virgin”, and protagonist of the show, is an educated Latina pursuing teaching but with a real passion for writing. Being a Latina on television usually means you’re holding a broom or holding a baby but making this commonplace is dangerous for a variety of reasons.
I can totally relate to this in particular, being a teacher and having a passion for writing also. It’s dangerous to grow accustomed to this and complacent instead of demanding diverse roles for Latinas.
If Latinas were over-represented in the way that white men are on television then this stereotypical representation of us would not present such a problem (though it’s still troublesome), but we are not and so it is of extreme importance that the roles for which Latinas are casted are not based on overdone and insulting stereotypes.
I have yet to see a Latina on prime time television I can relate to. Instead we have roles like those on shows in which you hold a broom and are “friends” with your rich, white employer. Oh, I can also play a “hot” woman with accentuated curves and a “sexy” accent dating a much older white man like Gloria on Wrong. Finally a role for a Latina I can relate to and she’s got to be pregnant?
How about a formally educated Latina with a diverse group of friends, living, working, dating, and thriving in New York City? The show is styled like a soap opera with over-the-top humor and narration. I was infuriated and refused to watch the rest of the show.
