Hi, my name is Stacy. I’m a 21 year old Hispanic female, attending the University of Maryland, College Park. I’m single with no kids and soon to be graduating in 2014 with a Communication degree. I would say stereotypes about Hispanics have motivated me to be more than what many expect from a Hispanic young lady. Different cultures associate young Hispanics girls to be high school drop-outs with at least 2 kids. But I’m not! Most women vixens in music videos are typically Hispanic and African Americans increasing the bad perceptions of minority women. The music industry is only one of many ways stereotypes still exist today. This blog will go more in depth about how certain stereotypes associated to minority women are embedded inside the music industry.
