How are you Latina and pale?

Christina K,

I have always been asked how I can be a Latina with olive skin tone? If my dad is brown and my mom is pale why aren’t I a medium skin tone? I do not “look like a Latina” so many people have said? To take a page from the Selena movie we are Spanish enough for Spanish people or white enough for white people.
