That Really Grinds My Gears...Latino stereotypes
You can't help but wonder why people still "stereotype" a group of people. Is it just America, or is it all around the world; it probably is all over the world. One would think that with an African-American president people would be a little more lenient. So what's the first thing that comes to your mind when you think of Latino? Probably something sexual right? To be honest, I think of the food.
There was a recent story in the Phila. Daily News entitled 'Sexual' allegations against Latino leader. Granted this doesn't help us as people but please have some respect...the comments below the story were outrageous. I hope you all realize that in 2042, "whites" will turn into a minority. Now I'm not saying you guys will be oppressed, I'm just saying that you have to realize Latinos are a growing population and you have to respect what we do.
