I’ve watched all 40 episodes over the last 4 days and THIS was the cutest thing (for me) in the whole series (so far).
He just… HE TURNED HIS LOSS INTO AN INSPIRATION
When I started watching this, I thought he was the biggest stereotype. But as I kept watching I realized I DO A LOT OF THE THINGS HE DOES.
I call my friends bro or brother or man. When I’m mad I stress my vowels. I throw in random spanish when I talk. I slouch.
I have short legs.
But he’s passionate about history. Loyal to his friends. Doesn’t ignore his culture, but values it and shows it off. And he became school president. THE LATINO KID BECAME PRESIDENT PEOPLE!
I mean, I rather this happy, funny, and as the show says, gangsta Latino stereotype, than a freaking Gogol/ Nikhil Ganguli character from The Namesake, who was self-centered, unsympathetic and tried to ignore his culture.
Cam’s not perfect, but he’s still cool.
