The Disenchantment of Americans with Mexic
It is so unfortunate that Americans are disenchanted with Mexico
Mexico is our neighbor and we bought land from Mexico
The state of New Mexico is the last place to profile Mexicans
Some will tell you, “My family has been here since the seventeenth century”
It is such a beautiful, historic place with many diverse cultures and indigenous people
Of all sorts!
Mexico, as a country, cannot be denied
It is one of the best countries in Latin America
It has the greatest tourist attraction from all around the world than all of the other LA countries
America has had such historical, political, social, cultural, economic ties with Mexico
The Mexican American War had a lot to do with the annexation of many territories
My first knowledge of Mexico was
When I played cowboys and Indians as a little boy
Toy guns and toy bow and arrows,
The Indians were our enemy and the Mexican, was without a true positive image
He was portrayed as a snotty slimy dirt bag character that would do anything for money
The imagery of Mexicans has always been horrible
I grew up with this indoctrination and influence in my head
But my heart changed when I visited Guadalajara!
I could live there any day of the week, lol
The people talk to you, shake your hand and some even hug !!
When I first started to backpack, Mexico was the last country on the list to visit
Since backpacking, I have gained a different perspective of the country
The Anthropological Museum in Mexico City is to die for !!!
