“You Don’t Look Like You’re From Minnesota!”

HBO has a series of “Habla” videos… Latino/a actors, comedians, writers speak directly to the camera about various life events or provide commentary on society. As I am married to a Venezuelan, “Habla Alberto,” is one of my favorites. And, yes, this has happened to my partner at least twice. Someone asks him, “Where are you from?” When he replies, “Venezuela,” they say, “Wow! You don’t look like you’re from Minnesota!” Go figure. Actually, if you’ve been to the Twin Cities, you’ll know that not everyone is blond anymore.
