word of the day: blanquita

The word of the day is blanquita:

A white girl of any ethnic background whether it be a white girl of Latin American origin or not. (Urban Dictionary)

"Maybe if you'd been engaged to a super-open-minded blanquita you could have survived it - but you're not engaged to a super-open-minded blanquita."

 - Junot Díaz, "The Cheater's Guide to Love", New Yorker 23 July 2012
