In case you missed it this morning, HuffPost Live covered the “Devious Maids” debate. It got kind of tense at times, but the debate was fascinating.
Here is the segment info and the guests who participated (including Latino Rebels contributor Tanisha Love Ramirez)
The new Lifetime drama, ‘Devious Maids,’ focuses on five Latina maids working for wealthy families and dreaming of a better life. Does this representation perpetuate stereotypes, or is the presence of mainstream Latina characters a win?
