Brown Love Podcast I Julissa Calderon On Auditioning While Afro-Latina I Con Todo


I was getting called in for like, African American girl next door,
things like that. And then as soon as I opened my mouth,
they’d be like, “Oh, where you from?” And I’m like, “Oh, I’m from Miami.” Because I knew the question, right? But I’m going to let you ask me
the correct question. I’m going to make you real uncomfortable
and make you say it. “So, where? Where, um, uh…” It was like that. You’re like, “Come on, get it out.” And it was, “Oh, well, where…
uh, your background?” And I’d be like,
“Oh, my parents are Dominican.” “Oh, so you speak Spanish?” “Yes.” “Oh, okay. Thank you so much.” And it was like,
“Well, damn, should I have not said that? Would I have gotten it if you felt?” You know what I mean? It was that. And I felt like when
I did go in for Latina roles, nobody in the room looked like me. -No.
-Oh, girl. -They still don’t.
-What! -You right.
-Girl. There’ll be one kind of little brown girl,
and you’re like, “Okay, bueno.” -I guess.
-Yeah. But that was my thing. It was either I go in for
these African American roles, but my accent was a problem. Or I went in for these Latina roles, and I’m the only real brown girl -with some kink in my hair.
-Yeah. And that’s a problem too.

  1. So, we got show bout black people and now a podcast show bout latino people. Where's the show bout white love? Heh? We all bout diversity right, so obviously we shouldn't be racist and exclude the whites? Or asians, or scotts, or brits, or middle eastern. How bout instead of marketing a show towards individual races, you try to just make good entertainment, without an agenda? Or is that too difficult nowadays?

  2. Julissa Calderon has a vibrant, cool, friendly personality we all need friends like her in our lives.💫💫 💕

  3. Serious talk: what is this "brown" business??
    Where I'm from Brown is a euphemism for the exclusionary, neo-colonial "planter"-class.

  4. Just because you speak Spanish doesn't mean you're not black. The reason why Latina don't look like you is because Latina is a euphemism for white person who speaks Spanish.

  5. No such thing as an Afro Latino and stop trying to staddle the race fence, just say who you are if you know and that's the question 🤔

  6. Over focusing on race only fuels racism it doesn't stop it lessen it. We're human beings all the same seriously getting sick of Netflix content needlessy inserting race it makes people see colour first not a human being
