The 2015 Oscars will always be known as a moment in history for Latinos. Alejandro González Iñárritu became the first Latino director to win an Oscar for best picture. He also became the second Mexican in a row to win a best director Oscar. Last year, Alfonso Cuarón won for "Gravity."
However, it’s a not a win for a person of color without criticism. Sean Penn was called out on social media for his joke to Iñárritu, a longtime friend, as he presented the Mexican filmmaker with the biggest award of the night, best picture. “Who gave this son of a bitch his green card?” joked Penn. Now Donald Trump and other ignorant folks are jumping in. Fix it, Jesus.

Buzzfeed created a poll from Caitlin McNeill, who runs the Tumblr page Swiked asking the question: "So let's settle this: what colors are this dress?" Caitlin needed help identifying the color of the dress because some people thought it was white and gold and others saw blue and black. She may have gotten more help than she expected to!
The question caused the biggest Internet debate this year (so far). Is the dress blue and black or white and gold? #TheDress debate had everyone, including brands and celebrities weighing in on the dress color. Below are some of our favorite responses to the debate. What colors do you see?

On Friday, February 13, I was watching the "Today" show when I heard something that made me do a double take. There was a segment about Marc Anthony, and the narrator described his upbringing as "born and raised in New York, the son of Puerto Rican immigrants." HOLD UP. WHAT?
I'm Puerto Rican, and we've been citizens of the U.S. since 1917 — nearly a CENTURY AGO. We've been citizens longer than Alaskans — the last frontier didn't receive U.S. citizenship until 1924! It's appalling that a national TV show would make such a glaring error. People already think that we don't deserve to win the lottery, and now this?
To clarify, there's nothing wrong with being an immigrant — we are all immigrants! But it's f*cked up when a major news source lacks awareness about Latinos and gives the wrong information to millions of TV viewers.
Our "Rebel Report" correspondent R.J. Aguiar said it best:
"I’m not sure why 'The Today Show' called Marc Anthony’s parents immigrants. Is it because they spoke Spanish? Maybe they wanted to drive home the point he came from humble means. Regardless, there are ways to do that without disseminating false information. You guys aren’t really the gold standard for journalistic excellence, but if you want your report on Kelly Clarkson’s new baby to have any credibility — you might want to air a correction."
Not surprisingly, the clip is nowhere to be found online. We wonder if the "Today" show realized the error after the segment aired? Regardless, an apology would be appreciated. The ball is in your court, "Today."
We all know awful couples. They cause their friends angst, annoyance and raw hatred because they act like they're the only two people in the world. With this guide, I hope to inform those couples of what makes them so utterly insufferable. Happy Valentine's Day!
We may have a Black president, but many people still think if you're Latino, you're not White. Come on, people, get with the program. This video shows the plight of a White Latina who gets treated like she's a circus freak just because she has light skin. Coworkers say all the wrong things, forms are loaded with racial statements and people ask the worst questions, including how to say "banana" in Spanish. Here's how you say "banana" in Spanish: "f*ck off."
Bottom line: None of these questions are offensive so much as they are thoroughly annoying. It'd be like running around saying, "Hey, you're White. Where's the nearest Walmart?"

We got together some gringos with varying levels of Spanish illiteracy and made them say words as simple as "perro" and as difficult as "acercarse." The results are equally hilarious. Gotta love the frank quote at the beginning: "Those posters on the subway that says 'desportes,' I thought they were about being deported." Uh, "deportes" means "sports."
And from there on out, Spanish is destroyed thoroughly. Instant classic.
