L@tino Stereotypes in Drawn Medi@



We intend to explore the racial stereotypes of Latin Americans in the United States found in the media during the 19th and 20th century. We will be focusing on pop culture references of the 19th and 20th century through the medium of cartoons. We will examine these stereotypes using three main points of analysis. First we will explore the political climate of the time period that produced these stereotypes. Secondly we plan is to compare these images to modern depictions of Latinos to understand whether or not these previous images have helped or hindered the Latino community.
