Abstract

Whether it’s the local newspaper, national television, popular movies, or hit TV shows, the media touches our lives every day. It affects our thoughts and actions, even our perceptions on entire communities of people. Countless communities are affected by their false portrayals in media, especially minority groups. The Latinx community is one of the most apparent victims. Our research will be focusing on the most prevalent stereotypes in popular media that pertain to the Latinx community. We will be exploring the impact of these stereotypes on the Latinx people, as well as looking at what we can do about it.
