Chicano Representations
Americans view Chicanos through various one-dimensional characteristics. Each of these characteristics represents a pitfall of the Chicano stereotype.
Cattle Herder vs. Macho Gentleman
Familial Relations
"The prevalence of cultural nationalism led to the reinscription of the heterosexual hierarchization of male/ female relationships...male domination was the rule" (Yarbro-Bejarano 390).
Chicano/a Representation
* Chicano movement created a new place to describe themselves
* Chicano identity was a static, fixed, and one-dimensional formulation
* "Failed to acknowledge our historical differences in addition to the multiplicity of our cultural identities as people."
* Mexicans are not perceived to be actually citizens or normal people
* May feel pressured to identify as Mexican in their homes and communities, but to act "American" in school and work contexts

The American Cowboy
"In American Culture, the ideal cowboy fights for justice, risks his life to make a dismal little cowtown safe... but in doing so destroys the exact environment which made him a hero" (Davis 113).
Are also perceived as Cleaning Maids and Gardeners
"By and large, Hispanic stereotypes and the traits that define them have not changed over the decades . Rather they exist as repetitive variations played upon too-familiar themes. There have been numerous cinematic examples of combinations of these six stereotypes, but such stereotypic blends are still one-dimensional, formulaic characters." (Berg)
Find the Difference
"Mexico yo te quiero y me quiero regresar pero tu gente no me entiende y jamás me aceptará Porque no soy de aquí ni soy de allá Pero aquí es donde me gusta, aquí me voy a quedar Porque no soy de aquí ni soy de allá Con dos acentos en la lengua llegaré a triunfar Porque no soy de aquí ni soy de allá Pero aquí es donde me gusta, aquí me voy a quedar Porque no soy de aquí ni soy de allá Te guste o no te guste, a mi me van a aceptar.
Mexico, I love you and I want to return to you, but your people do not understand me and they will never accept me Because I’m not from here and I’m not from there But I like it here and here I’ll stay Because I’m not from here and I’m not from there With two accents I will still triumph Because I’m not from here and I’m not from there But I like it here and here I’ll stay Whether you like it or not, I will be accepted"(Franquiz,Reyes 3)".
Struggles of Mexican American caught between two worlds.
Borderlines.

Stereotype of Chicano Men

"Gender-neutral traits of Chicanas/os include immoral, violent, dirty, unintelligent, improvident, irresponsible, and lazy (Cross & Maldonado1971).

"Don´t be afraid of the chili pepper even tough you see its vibrant redness"( Franquiz, Reyes 6).
"xenophobic fear"
"language socialization"
Patriarchal Difficulties
"Despite the fact that they themselves were members of this group they would tell me that Mexicanos were womanizers, drunks, cheaters, liars and criminals" (Wentzell 104).
Charro as a metaphor for familial struggle
Just as the cowboy destroys his environment fulfilling his duty as a hero, Chicano men are seen as doing the same as they fulfill their cultural duty as dominant caregivers within the family structure.
Dicho
"Not all Anglo-American images of the Mexican are unfavorable. Among those usually mean to be complimentary are the beliefs that all Mexicans are musical and always ready for a fiesta, that they are very "romantic" rather than "realistic"..." (Simmons)
The believe that if parents get deported the Children should be too.
'The prevalent image of a Mexican is a peon wearing a serape and a sombrero reclining against a cactus while a burro is tethered in the background' (Guajardo 19).
Borderlands Issue
