Every stereotype has its own mental picture that is thought of when mentioned or talked about. For example, every time someone thinks of a cowboy they usually think of someone that is fit and lives at the ranch. Also shown in a poll created by Jo Tweedy at the daily mail shows what race and ethnicity men and women found attractive. This shows how people picture how others look by their stereotype and misconceptions of their race and ethnicity. Many people usually create a negative setting for immigrant families such as Mexican immigrants. Mexican immigrant families are usually pictured in a small house in the ghetto with gang members and criminals in the streets.

I do think many of these stereotypes came from truths that were once real. Many of the immigrants that came to America did not have money or and goal in life. Many of the cartel and gang members are from Mexico or born of a immigrant. But many of the immigrants that come to America are hard working people that do not try to hurt people and cause terror. Many of these are misconceptions that were created due to fear and arrogance made by the media and the people. I believe that many of the people that come to America are just trying of get away from the bad governments that are in place of their country. May of the immigrants are just trying to be in a safe place to start a family and have good pay. But many people believe the negative stereotypes that have been misunderstood by people who are racist or “white power”. “People did not really care if i was a immigrant or spoke a different language…”(Julio C.

But I do not believe that this is true because immigrants are divers and do not have the same dreams as every other immigrant. There are too much negativity that is surrounding and immigrant family to have a normal life that will not be affected by racism or any other form of negativity. All of the negativity can cause terrible outcomes such as bullying and discrimination to an immigrant family. Many people think that we should fear who comes to our country and have more rules to let less in.

Latinos In The Media: The Stereotypes We Swallow Stereotypes, as defined by Merriam-Webster, are something conforming to a fixed or general pattern, especially a standardized mental image that represents a prejudiced opinion. Common examples include “the dumb blonde” or “the boring cat lady.” Mainstream media often portrays Latinos as “lazy,” “dishonest,” and “poor.” While I Love Lucy (1951-1957), Chico and the Man (1974-1978), and ¿Qué Pasa, USA? (1977-1980) were all popular television shows that presented Latino men in a positive light, they simultaneously propagated stereotypes.
There are a lot of controversies when it comes to the topic of immigration. Specifically illegal immigration. However, I rarely ever hear anyone talk about the different treatment certain ethnic groups get compared to others. For instance, Latin American immigrants are far more discriminated against in comparison to any other immigrant group. When it comes to Latino Immigrants, they are often considered unwanted and are seen as a threat to American society, which leads to discrimination and negative treatment.
Stereotype about gringos. Hello everyone, I'm going to tell you about the "gringo" stereotype. But, first of all, let me define, what does the "gringo" word mean. Gringos are tourists, or people, who look like foreigners in Latin America, but it is widely thought, that these are people, who look like Men in hats and with mustache, as you can see on the slides, and they are criminals, who are seeking money, and live an interrupted life.
One thing I can never deny is my heritage. I am a Mexican American. I was born in America, but nurtured in an all-Mexican Household. I speak Spanish at home and English elsewhere. I eat authentic Mexican food that my mother makes, and American fast food when I go out with friends.

Word Count: Tal Yeoshoua AMH2097 - 01 - Fall 2015 Immigration into the United States was not a facile journey for any immigrant group. After a long trip on the ships, ranging from about one to three months across the Atlantic Ocean, immigrants arrived in the United States and were anything but welcomed. The WASPs considered any race different from them “the others” and created stereotypes against them, which made any immigrant group seem unworthy to be in America. The WASPs used political cartoons to stereotype immigrant groups such as the Irish and the Germans. Both the Germans and the Irish were stereotyped to be drunks and the Irish immigrants were thought to be especially violent.

Most stereotypes come from social media and largely by the famous latinos which has a big impact on how various mistake the overall view of Latinos. Plenty of Latinos are American citizens who actually become successful.

Even though immigrants might be running from something dangers, they can also be doing a lot worst. For example, the children do not have all the vaccines so they could be bring illnesses. What I mean is a lot of other countries do not have the money for vaccines. Also, if their country does have vaccines a lot of those people can’t afford them. This is bad because some people do not have all of these vaccines yet being around kids that Might have these illnesses.
Immigration is a huge topic in the news right now, many people have different views on immigrants which is why our country is having issues deciding on how they should be treated. The impact of immigrants on our country is viewed as both positive and negative. Some people believe a wall should be built around the border prevent people from coming in illegally, while others believe anyone should be allowed to start a new life in our country. Although some people do come into this country illegally and cause trouble, the positives outweigh the negatives. Immigrants help strengthen America through their hard work and talents, they also contribute their diverse cultures enriching the country, and have a positive impact on the economy.
Stereotypes are burned into our minds at a very youthful age mainly through the media. Jack Shaheen touches on this point by saying, “Some naturally repeat the stereotype without realizing that, in so doing, they are innocently joining the ranks of the stereotypes’ creators.” (55) Hollywood has found a great success in creating movies that make a joke out of stereotypes. They create this image in our head of what people, religions, ethnicities are supposed to be like. It is a danger to our minds because of the fact that stereotypes are usually wrong.
All Asians are good at math, all blondes are dumb, all Muslims are terrorists - these are all common stereotypes. Without even realizing it, stereotypes have undeniably played an enormous role in individual lives. Minds seem to already set a certain image in them based on the people they encounter. People judge others by their skin tone, ethnicity, and physical appearance unconsciously, and this have been proven by many social experiments. Of course, though these stereotypes might be accurate at times, there are situations where they are completely defied.
People get categorized by stereotypes everyday just by outward appearances or the group of people they are associated with. A stereotype is a preconceived notion about a group of people.

Stereotypes can be formed due to effects of media, as Wood describes media as pervasive, powerful and influential (31). Hence, stereotypes can be defined as inaccurate perceptions towards a group of people or community that is strongly influenced by the media. Whether positive or negative, stereotypes are usually false as they are formed based on personal judgments, which are biased or exaggerated. When stereotypes are consistently portrayed in media platforms, they subconsciously form and maintain assumed identities for the stereotyped groups.
