* Averted in ''Disney/BigHero6'' with Honey Lemon, who is Latina by WordOfGod. She's also a very light skinned blonde. She's voiced by Hispanic actress Genesis Rodriguez, who also made sure to have Honey pronounce some words to imply her Latin heritage - for example, pronouncing 'Hiro' by rolling the r.

Various prototypical designs were dark skinned and raven haired but the artists opted otherwise.

* Explicitly averted in ''Moonlight'' with Juan, a black Cuban played by Mahershala Ali. There's even a scene where he acknowledges this perception by saying Americans often don't think Latinos can be black.

In real life, Latin America comprises a variety of ancestries and ethnic groups, making the region one of the most diverse in the world. The region is populated by a mix of the indigenous population who survived the colonization, descendants of Spanish and Portuguese colonists, African slaves and numerous immigrant populations who moved to the continent in the last two centuries from places as varied as Germany, Italy or Japan, leading to large numbers of the Latin American populations comprising (usually brown-skinned) [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mestizo various]] [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mulatto kinds]] [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cholo of]] [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zambo multi]][[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Castizo racial]] [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pardo people]], alongside the more customary "Whites", "Blacks", "Native Americans" and even "East Asians" who have sizeable communities in Peru and Brazil and "Arabs" such as in Chile.

* In ''Literature/RuledBritannia'', Creator/HarryTurtledove introduces Isabella Clara Eugenia of Spain as "swarthy even for a Spaniard - to English eyes, she seemed not far from a Moor. The enormous, snowy-white ruff she wore only accented her dark skin." The real Isabella had red hair and green(ish) eyes, and if their couple portraits are anything to go by, [[PaleFemalesDarkMales she was paler than her husband]], Albert of Austria. Maybe we are supposed to take "to English eyes" as "compared to the cadaveric looking UsefulNotes/ElizabethI."

Added DiffLines:

* [[JediTruth Technically]] avoided in the ''Series/WhiteCollar'' two-parter episode "Wanted"/"Most Wanted", filmed in Puerto Rico and where all the locals are tanned Caucasians. Unfortunately, this country is supposed to be ''the African nation of UsefulNotes/CapeVerde'', which [[LatinLand besides being a Portuguese-speaking country instead of a Spanish-speaking one]], is 78% Creole and 21% Black in RealLife.
* The "Deal with the Devil"/"Spain" episode in NationalGeographic's ''Locked Up Abroad'', supposedly depicting the imprisonment of an American rastafari in Spain for smuggling cocaine from Ecuador, was filmed entirely in Ecuador and managed to have more Native American actors in the Spain scenes than in the Ecuador ones. And yet the earlier scenes set in Trinidad and Tobago, despite being also filmed in Ecuador, are almost entirely staffed by black actors, correctly reflecting Trinidad and Tobago's mostly black and creole population.

* Creator/AlexisBledel has a Mexican mother, Argentinian father, and considers herself Latina, but is also white and typically plays white roles. When promoting ''TheSisterhoodOfTheTravelingPants'', America Ferrera (a Honduran-American) was surprised to hear Bledel speaking Spanish (which is in fact her birth language). Bledel also showed off some of her Spanish-speaking on ''Series/GilmoreGirls''.
