Canada's Fear of Mexico
Transcript of Canada's Fear of Mexico

border towns in northern Mexico This in turn raises the mortality
salience of every Canadian that
hears about the "Canadian" Killings Thunder Bay ON, 2010 5 murders, population 123,000 Homicide rate approx 4.2 per 100,000 Mexico
Homicide rate = 18 per 100,000 Yucatan Peninsula The Yucutan has a homicide rate
of 1.2 per 100,000 Canadians convince themselves that they too
will be murdered if they vacation in Mexico In order to elude certain death, people cling to their
own cultural worldviews and disparage others Disparagement can lead to the creation
of stereotypes that push our mortality salience back into our subconcious From a North American standpoint, these images
boost our self esteem and make us feel better about
ourselves and our culture. At the same time, they diminish
