Storyboard Text

  • It's May, Isabel announces that she is in the running for "Queen of the May". However, Josefina explains that only girls with blond hair and blue eyes win, Isabel will never be elected because of her ethnicity
  • I'm running for "Queen of the May"
  • Ohhh come on, we know that only American girls with blond hair and blue eyes win
  • You can do it giiiiirrrll
  • A week later,Isabel is still obsessed with becoming the Queen of the May and she cheerfully announces that someone is building a new camp for the workers from Oklahoma where there will be a pool
  • I'm obsessed with the Queen of May, but I'm more excited about the new pool that a camp is building
  • However, Mexican workers will only be allowed to swim one day per week, right before the pool is cleaned on Saturday mornings (based on the stereotype, Mexicans are dirtier than the other migrant workers)
  • But sadly we will be able to swim on fridays
