With more than 500,000 followers on Vine and over a million on Instagram, it's safe to say that LeJuan James has reached the status of a social media superstar. As a Dominican and Puerto Rican, a lot of the stories that James tells on social media are dedicated to sharing what it's like living in America as a Latino—using plenty of humor, of course.

James' photo and video posts imagine scenarios like 'When You Store Pots in the Oven Because You're Hispanic,' 'Trying to Explain to Your Non-Hispanic Friend Why You Can't Go Out' and even a hilarious rendition of 'Hispanic Jurassic Park.' Judging from the thousands of comments and likes that posts like these tend to receive, James' perspective is as comical as it is relatable to many.
