It's all been said in the previous comments with a touch of cultural disconnect in a couple reviews. I can understand how some could find the endearment terms from the father towards the daughter offensive when viewed from an outsiders perspective of say an American who isn't familiar with Mexican culture would. I'm not denying racism exist in Mexico but in this occasion clearly misunderstood by a couple of reviewers. It is common today for wives and mothers to call their husbands and sons negro or negrito (black, little black one/blackie) as a term of endearment and free of the negative connotation Americans might perceive. In Mexican culture til this day a wife or mother nicknaming her husband or son enano (midget) for being short or even pulga/pulguita (flea or little flea) for being of small stature and not one Mexican would perceive it as demeaning. To prove my point, my name is Louis in Mexico people named Louis/ Luis often get nicknamed Huicho (don't ask me why) which is the name of an indigenous tribe in Mexico Huichol or Huicholes to which I have no blood relation to and there's nothing negative about it. I'm guessing nicknaming someone Cherokee or Seminole wouldn't be taken as well by Americans who have no ties to the tribe itself. I'll close with the common female name Blanca which translates to white. Guaranteed to be called Blanquita by someone dear to them and this translates to little white one,/whitey you get the jiff.
