Un Actor en el Ivy League - Irving Torres

August 21, 2017

Allow me to present you with a thought experiment: You meet a young brown man with a Latinx-sounding last name, caramel skin, and curly hair. He tells you that he’s a student at Cornell University, one of the most elite universities in the world.

A quick glance at the inspiration porn of your Facebook feed might lend you some ideas. “Ivy League Latino” sounds like the makings of a 4.0 high school valedictorian who’s on track to becoming a doctor in hopes of making his family of 8 (who all happen to share the same room in a tiny apartment in the south side of Chicago) proud. You walk up to him, ready to congratulate him on beating the odds and moving up in the world.  Full story.
