Share on Facebook

The media has a nasty habit of portraying things through their own unique lens, don’t they? I use the word unique very lightly, here, because this lens is usually either weird or borderline offensive. The new “Mexico in American Movies” memes are a definite mix of both.

People have started to notice a distinct trend in the way that American movies represent Mexico or, at least, a place that is supposed to be Mexico.
