I want to know what people think about this video. I used it in my essay. I think it's particularly interesting that George Lopez, a comedian, uses immigration which is a very important political issue right now as one of his subjects for his stand-up routine. My take is that he uses the stereotypes associated with immigration, within the routine, and uses them to exert power over the stereotypes by saying that Latino's aren't going anywhere. I also think it relates to what we were talking about in class on how Latinos have been around longer than the rest of the population, so to say that they are now flooding America and immigration should be regulated doesn't really hold any weight because the Latino culture has been around longer than the rest of the population.
I like how George Lopez uses immigration in a non-threatening environment to take a stance on the issue and explain that he thinks it's absurd to start regulating immigration because he and his culture have been around for way too long, it is not a new phenomenon.
*NOTE* I didn't now how to put the video into the post so that you guys can watch it right on the blog, so I only posted the link. If anyone knows how to do it so you can see it in the blog, let me know and I'll repost it.
