These not particularly attractive examples are part of the average 3 percent of video game characters recognized as Latino.Details
It’s no news to anyone that Latinas don’t get much diversity of roles in popular entertainment media.

On film, we’ve got sexy badasses Zoe Saldana in Colombiana and Michelle Rodriguez in the Machete and Resident Evil flicks.
