The media often uses and misrepresents stereotypes; however, they are significantly accepted by people among society.
Until recently, Latino portrayals in the media has had negative affects for the Latino community. Historically Latinos have not only been portrayed negatively through stereotypes but they have also been largely ignored and excluded from most American Media. Support for this assumption has been provided by The Annenberg School of Cultural Communicators Project which found that between the years of 1969 to 1978 only 2.5% of primetime television characters were Hispanic. The significance of this is that this figure is still significantly behind other minorities such as the African American population who comprised 8.5% of primetime television characters. Another study conducted by The Center for Media and Public Affairs in Washington DC has shown that Latinos have been in the 2% range of representation in Media for the past 30 years. This percentage is also following a downward trend which is especially noticeable in the Prime Time Television shows. Findings also unveiled that “Hispanics are virtually absent as characters in the entertainment media and as correspondents and anchors in news media.

When Latinos are actually present in different forms of media a very consistent type of Latino is portrayed. Usually it is a person who has darker features, tanner skin, and an accent. The quest for a heterogeneous type of Latino completely overlooks the diversity that is included under the umbrella term. The lack of range in how Latinos are presented phenotypically also helps to polarize the community by showing usually either rich Latinos or poor Latinos. This phenomenon is reminiscent of the movie A Day Without a Mexican in which everyone who was from Latino descent disappeared. There was no recognition of different cultures, traditions, languages, and beliefs. The problem with the assumption that Latinos are so homogenous is that it leads people to believe that no diversity exists. The lack of diversity can be extended to the diversity of social, economic, education and health needs. If people in the United States assume that all Latinos are poor or rich then none of these problems are being addressed. The only way that most of these problems can be solved is with the help of the larger national and global community.

This affirmation is important because not all Latinos are immigrants. Many are second, third generation and beyond Americans who are wholly assimilated and have rights and rightly insist on asserting their rights.

When it comes to stereotyping Latinos the media tends to translate everything negatively. Comfortable sexuality is labeled as prostitution or being vamp-ish, having a lot of kids is associated with being impoverished and acting assertive is viewed as ‘macho’. Viewers’ unrealistic view of serious problems and lack of understanding of Latino culture allows Media portrayals to cultivate and reinforce myths about the Latino community. These negative views also lend themselves to negative propaganda against Latino communities.
