Well at least you are being represented on this damn show, albeit in a shitty way. Where in the world are the Latinas? You know that group that makes up 16% of the U.S. population and is the largest minority group in this country. I guess this show didn’t need any maids or sexy men stealing vixens. Because that is the only role we get to play. And don’t even get me started on the fact that a very Hispanic looking man is playing a white dude. Trevino looks like a Lockwood, like I look like an O’Shea. Not!!! Didn’t mean to hijack your post, but I just needed to get that out.
Sometimes I get really concerned about people who are anti bamon or anti draeden or any other biracial couple. If you dislike bamon because of your personal opinions on Damon than ok I can’t fault you on that but sometimes I really think it has to do with the women in these ships being of color,…
We should’ve had a Latina character from the start on TVD, had the writers followed their source material. In the books the female trio of main characters was Bonnie, Elena, and Meredith Sulez; but rather than give us a Latina Meredith which in addition to Bonnie, would’ve gave the show some much needed diversity, we got an older Meredith Fell who was later written out of the series. It was sad seeing the posts from other Meredith fans upset by the change, for a few of them Meredith was one of the first Latina characters they ever read in a YA novel. The change in Meredith also showed me the hypocrisy within the fandom, to this day there are fans who complain about Bonnie not being a white redhead because “it’s not true to the novels,” but you didn’t hear a peep from them about the changes to Meredith.
