    kuno becker’s white according to his race listed online. how is he a latino hearthrob then? he was born in mexico w/c according to hollywood makes him a latino heartthrob. what? whitewashing as usual from hollywood. what else is new. it’s the same thing w/ tyler garcia posey who’s the leading acto on teen wolf. he used to go by tyler garcia posey as a child actor. and he was actually quite tan. but now that he’s older he’s dropped the “garcia” and appears to have lighter skin w/c i’m guessing is to make him appear more “marketable” by passing more for white. typical racism from hollywood. the tolerance brigade of hollywood are their usual hypocritical selves. hollywood is the most racist and biased. they really love limiting roles for racial minorities and love having racial minority actors and actresses more closely resemble hollywood’s physical standard ideal w/c is being white. racism as usual from hollywood.
