But I must quickly add that I too am just as guilty guilty in the question of the single story. A few years ago, I visited Mexico from the U.S. The political climate in the U.S. at the time was tense, and there were debates going on about immigration. immigration. And, as often often happens in America, immigration immigration became synonymous with Mexicans. There were endless stories of Mexicans as people who were fleecing the healthcare system, sneaking sneaking across the border, being arrested at the border, that sort sort of thing. I remember walking around on my first day in Guadalajara, watching the people going to work, rolling up rolling up tortillas in the marketplace, smoking, laughing. I remember first feeling slight surprise. And then I was overwhelmed overwhelmed with shame. I realized realized that I had been so immersed immersed in the media coverage of Mexicans that they had become one thing in my mind, the abject abject immigrant. immigrant. I had bought into the single story of Mexicans and I could not have been more ashamed ashamed of myself. So that is how to create a single story,show a people as one thing, as only one thing, over and over again, and that is what they become.
