Whose story is this, again?

Oh, I saw this advertisement and it made me so mad I want to hit someone:


Razorbill Books is seeking a commercially minded author to write a comical yet poignant coming of age story for teens. Main character would be Latina--though story should appeal to a broad range of teens from other ethnicities (in much the same way that My Big Fat Greek Wedding appeals to people of all ethnicities). Narrative struggle would center on main character's attempt to reconcile her Hispanic heritage with the ways of the modern world.

Oh, yeah, right because "Hispanic" peoples are not part of the modern world.

It doesn't sound like they're looking for a Latino writer at all: they've already got they're little white narrative already written out...pinches desgraciados...
