What a week. Just when I was recuperating from Lorne Michaels SNL’s Latino Problem, now it’s Vanity Fair and Jerry Seinfeld. If you’ve been under a rock, Vanity Fair is getting a lot of kudos for its latest “diverse” cover. As Salon puts it: “This is the best of Hollywood — a diverse array of stars emerging and established, black and white alike.” Let that sink in, pueblo. The same ol’ black and white paradigm. Qué cojones.

Ah, the magic medicine.
It’s a proven fact that Vicks VapoRub can cure everything...well, at least if you ask our abuela. It’s a secret weapon, a magical potion, the fountain of youth, and the cure-all that Latina mothers everywhere love slathering all over their niños - regardless of what’s actually afflicting them.

I grew up in an upper-middle class family in Texas, where I attended the best private Catholic schools from preschool until graduation. When it came to my education–and my dreams–my parents spared no expense. If I needed a new blazer for my debate tournament, they bought me three. If I needed a tutor for calculus, they handled it. When it came time to apply for colleges, they expected the best from me, and they did their part: dishing out cash for SAT tests, application fees, and campus tours. I was never asked to stay close to home or attend an in-state institution to save money.

Truthfully, we've all experienced some things that our non-Latino amigos will just never understand. Sometimes, it's necessary to take a step back, and chuckle at the "problems" that make our culture unique.

As more U.S.-born Latinas attain the American Dream and the financial freedom that comes along with it, they have to deal with the guilt of having more money than the immigrant parents who sacrificed all to help them thrive.

In June, a study found that Latinas were hit the hardest by the gender wage gap. But the wage gap is not only seen among men and women, the gap also includes a break down of women to women by race/ethnicity.
