La Cucaracha: Less Latinas on TV with "reeely theeek fony axsents."

Rare is the day that I praise La Cucaracha, but the excellent aping of exaggerated dialect here made me laugh.

Though he doesn't come right out and say so, Lalo Alcaraz seems to be talking specifically about Modern Family here. Modern Family's depiction of race has always been somewhat problematic--its stories often condemn stereotyping, but only after they've used stereotypes for laughs--so it's interesting to see a Latino cartoonist take issue with it.
