I HIGHLY implore you to think about the picture for a second... let's categorize each stat and see where it leads us...
- The top 3 pics are different ways of quantifying our number in the U.S. How much we take up in space, how we compare with the rest of our neighbors, and how many of us are children and adults. I call this category the "Dead Weight" Category
- The first two on the bottom row are uber simplistic representations of our economic capital and capacity to reproduce. I call this "What the Mainstream Wants Us For"
- The sixth pic is a bit tricky. The language makes sense of "Latinos in the U.S." versues "U.S Latinos." So, providing nationality is fair game, but this brings up questions of purpose of the stat, citizenship, nationalism, etc. I call this one "Huh?"
- The very last pic is a logo from Latino Branding Pwer, the organization that made this graphic. Their role, as stated in their site, "... delivers culturally relevant insights about Hispanic marketing and Latino culture" Unfortunately, this graphic doesn't show culture at all, but numbers and statistics... If you want better use of numbers, check out the Pew Hispanic Center. Anyways, Culture is influences, values, worldview, perspective, etc that manifest in cultural products (a simple way of putting it)... This graphic is not culture. A Jalepeno is not culture. I call this category "A Commercial."
