When looking at the recent news coming from Latin America I was bombarded with articles talking about the violence in Mexico. This reminded me of the discussion that was had this past week about the stereotypes, both good and bad, of Latin Americans and where they're from. There is so much information in the media telling us about all the horrible things going on in Mexico. It's sad that information like the article I read about a drug shootout is pasted everywhere while there is barely anything said about the bicentennial celebration. I hope that its possible for people to realize amidst the violence and problems, there are good things happening in Mexico also. Here is an example of an article that paints a scary, dangerous picture of Mexico.
