The colonizers are at it again: white European Paz Vega to play a Mexican woman in Tacowood


  • Spanish writer Frank Ariza concieved of the idea for Tacowood, a story about a Mexican single mother who runs a taco stand in Mexico city and who dreams of becoming a Hollywood actress

  • Ariza hired Paz Vega, also a Spaniard, to play the lead character

  • This isn't the first time Vega has played a Mexican immigrant. She also did so in the garbage film Spanglish which OP didn't see because it looked dumb and racist

  • Ariza and Vega released a statement praising themselves on being inclusive (Op note: in deciding which countries to colonize? Which cultures to rob?) "Making a more inclusive cinema, focusing on minorities and fairly representing the society in which we live is a responsibility of everyone who works in this industry. That is why I feel extremely excited to join MGM and put my voice at the service of this beautiful initiative that will generate great opportunities for the Latin community."

Everything about this is trash.
