Dangers of single story perspective:

When it comes to race, and representation there are many multiple perspectives. For example the hispanic, or latino race. To certain people they are seen as criminals, drug dealers etc… When the majority of them are not. It’s absolutely tragic how some of these people think they are all the same, when the majority of them who immigrate to the U.S seeking for a better life, and a better education. According to the New York Time article “The Walls in our Heads” clearly discuss the dangers some latinos go through on their way to the U.S, some of them die on their way, some of them make it, and some of those that make it get send back to their country just because how they are represented in the U.S. Which is basically judging someone on how they are seen in the American society. I see that as Discrimination, and Racism why? Because the majority of the latinos who immigrate to the u.s is because in their country there’s no jobs available, their education is really expensive, and is not worthy, the majority of them just want, and are looking forward to a better education, better life, and fresh start to accomplish all their goals in life. Another race that suffers danger based on their representation, and race in the U.S is the Asian Americans. They are proclaimed as a model minority. Model minority is a group based on ethnicity, race, or religion whose members are perceived to achieve a higher degree of socioeconomic success than the population average. According to the “This is 2016” video we saw in class, many Asian Americans responded to some of the question the American society asked them. All the comments, and question that were asked to the Asian Americans were complete racist. The video “This is 2016” is trying to show how segregated this world is. Even thought those Asian were born in the United States people still treat differently based on their looks, and representation, which is an act of  discrimination, and judging.
