Jessica Alba Overcompensates in Her Interview with ‘Latina’ Magazine

In what I can only assume is an attempt on Jessica Alba’s part to dismiss any rumors that she’s a self-hating Latina, she gave an interview with “Latina” magazine in which she sounds like she’s overcorrecting a bit. She gushed about how proud she was of her Mexican roots, saying, “I’m excited for my baby to be brown. I just have to believe the dark gene is going to survive. Cash and I are like, please!” How about just wishing that the your child be healthy? And not mentally-challenged, like its mother?

Jessica also told a little anecdote about her childhood to further emphasize her love of all things dark-skinned, including her father. “When I was little, I used to go up to black men and hold their legs, thinking it was my dad all the time. I’d wrap my arms around them, then look up and be like, ‘Oh my God!'”

She forgot to say that her reaction was so strong because she thought they might steal her purse. Kidding! She would never think that because she JUST said she wants a brown baby. Right?
