Rick Najera, 'Almost White' (Rebroadcast)


Rick Najera calls himself "almost white,” which is his way of saying he’s Latino. As a performer, he noticed that Hispanics are under-represented on TV, so he decided to take matters into his own hands. Realizing writers control the ethnicity of TV characters, he started writing more roles for non-whites. We discuss all this and his one-man show, Almost White: Forced Confessions of a Latino in Hollywood.

Originally aired Thursday, October 9, 2014
