Eva Longoria Says “My Family Called Me The Ugly Black One”…Pictures Of Her “Pretty” Sisters!

Latina actress Eva Longoria told her fans and followers that she was called “black”, “dark” and “ugly” growing up in a family of white and fair-skinned blonde Mexicans.

Because she had a darker complexion, they called her family “la preta fea” – the ugly black woman.

Please note that in the following clip Eva translates the term as “dark” – however the definition of the term “preta” is actually Black and in some countries including Mexico it is a projorative term – similar to the N-word.
