Re-Socialize Yourself

Knowledge is amazing.

A Cultural Case Study: The Media and the Latina

The latina I know from television is a beautiful woman with fair features, flowing voluminous hairs, and a heavy accent akin to televisions depiction of the stereotypical Italian. I have not met a latin american woman that has matched this description. I’ve met women tall, short and medium height. Some had fair skin when others had dark ebony skin. Many had long straight here but just as many had wavy, curly or tightly curled coils.

The media is a gift and a curse it socializes us to think in so many different ways. For the next few days I’ll try and delve into this mis-socialization of our generation.
