Mexican Is Beautiful. But Missing.
(submitted anonymously by an OOC reader)
We first posted this piece sent in by a reader a few months ago. We're putting it up again because we think it raises an important question about what we (that's all of us) don't see when we look out at the cultural landscape around us. "I googled "Mexican is beautiful" and all that popped up was half naked pictures of mexican women and enchilada recipes. so i tried typing in "latina is beautiful" trying to see if the broader term would help me out. no luck."
Let's discuss this. Surely it's not for a lack of beautiful mexican women in the world, though it's def easier to list 5 blonde american women without even thinking. Who else don't we see images of in popular culture?
