Latin@s Explain Why the Economist’s Chili Stereotype is So Wrong


This morning on WBAI’s Morning Show I interviewed Jessica Torres, a researcher who has been posting on the Media Matters site. We discussed the controversy over the reaction to the cover of the new issue of The Economist, which grossly stereotypes all Latin@s by using the image of chili peppers standing in for the stripes in the US flag. We also talked about her post, with Christina Lopez, that critiques the “Single Issue Syndrome” that limits most media coverage of Latin@s to the immigration reform issue. We also shouted out to various Latin@s in media and agreed that we need to shed more light on the Libre Initiative’s thinly disguised Koch Brothers agenda.
