Latino Stereotypes

This sucks. Nice Latin people getting harassed by stereotypes like this? WTF? What the hell is wrong with this picture? Latin people getting insulted like this? WTF?

Some of the most common stereotypes include:
  • Being heavily tattooed
  • Enjoy driving low rider cars
  • Having too-greasy hair
  • The "Latin Lover": very romantic, charming
  • Large families
  • Can't speak English well
  • Drug dealers(thanks to the movie Scarface)
  • Exotic lovers
  • Laborers
  • Mouthy
  • All live in 1 house
  • Enjoy clothing in loud, obnoxius colors
  • Gardeners/landscapers
  • Maid/Housekeeper
  • All are Mexican
  • Has multiple kids
  • All have large SUVs
  • Being short
  • Uneducated
  • All listen to the same music and eat hot food
Also, in the US, there are Latin neighborhoods all over, most of the Latin neighborhoods seem to be of Mexican heritage, meaning there are nice Mexican people living there.
  • Los Angeles: means "The Angels" in Spanish. Home to over 1 million people of Mexican ancestry, another 2 million located throughout Los Angeles county, and 5 million located throughout the 5 greater Los Angeles county areas
  • Culver City, California: site of the famous Zoot Suit Riots of 2011
