I'm latino and I can tell you that it's difficult to me. American and European people have a pretty clear idea (stereotipycial, of course) about what a Latin person is (for sample, that Latinos dance well) and there are JLo, Ugly Betty and all that pop culture elements that have established all the possible stereotypes concerning Latin People. In my case I can tell you that I was born and raised in Latin America and I live, study and work in Latin America and I've nothing to do with JLo, Ugly Betty, salsa music or Hugo Chavez and, above all, I can't dance (I'm like a robot). Not only me, I know tons of persons who prefer reading or watching films than dancing, so... Bono is a little bit wrong and here we have a huge issue to discuss. Please visit my blog, it's mostly in Spanish but you can also find some things translated to English.
