This week on Being Latino on Facebook we learned that is in fact okay to not be Facebook friends with every single person you’ve ever met.
We continued celebrating gay pride by offering dating tips for young gay men, because after all, relationships are difficult no matter whom you date and with marriage for gays becoming a reality, the art of courtship is even more important.
This past week, we also discovered that the history books were wrong, and despite all of the evidence to the contrary, Mexicans are responsible for a variety of tragedies, including the sinking of the Titanic.
But that is how we Latinos are, walking natural disasters, and living, breathing stereotypes. Or at least that’s how one writer sees it as he dissects a new stereotype: The ever-superstitious Latino characters in horror movies. Always the seemingly goofy minor player who, as it turns out, was right to be afraid in the end.
Perhaps that type of superstitious nature and belief in the super-natural is something that’s passed down to us as part of our culture. Our beloved abuelos with their natural cures and never-ending stories of the past, taught most of us that there is life beyond what we can see with our eyes.
