      Why is that be disrespectful ???
      because she’s white???
      well Latin isn’t a race,its a culture.. anyone can be a Latina.
      where do you think the Spanish language and there culture came from??? It came from Spain a white country..most Latinos are native Americans or mestiza too meaning half white/half native American. But others are full white,full black,full Asian, or mixed with either of above.
      I don’t think it was disrespectful, its called acting.
      did you want a native American to play her role???
