"Ethnic Is The New N Word"
(WORD! Not Since The Last TIme I Was Black)

"Zoe Saldana" covers "Glamour" magazine’s April 2010 edition and  talks about race and what she wants the most out of life:

GLAMOUR: In past interviews, you’ve bristled on the topic of race. Why?

"ZOË SALDANA": "Because ethnic is a word that doesn’t exist in my vocabulary. In Hollywood, you hear things like, “Oh, they loved you but they want to go more traditional.” That’s the new N word. So when [someone says] I look “dark,” I say, “Dark compared to whom? This is just my skin.”

“I want to have more sex, travel more, drink more wine and love life.”
