Is the Latino community unwilling to address its problematic relationship with black people?
Fortunately, thanks to ‘Love & Hip Hop Miami‘, it may be forced to.
The graceful and gifted Amara La Negra leads the cast and has been praised on social for her boldness and bravery as she faces racism from her fairer-skinned Hispanic cast-members.
How the net responded?
Y’all bout to get a GOOD ass glimpse on how they treat Afro Latinas with Amara La Negra dealing with racist ass Veronica Vega. You can already smell colorism.

Anti-Blackness in the Latinx community.
Young Hollywood: I need you to look a certain way.
Amara La Negra: What would a certain way look like?
Young Hollywood:The Afro is cool but it’s not really elegant.
Amara La Negra: So I can’t be elegant if I have a fro?
Young Hollywood:Yeah pic.twitter.com/iICumUIbDg
