Epidemiology by Craig Janes, he states “cultural explanations also founder when faced with the facts of social inequality. Individuals, social groups, communities, ethnicities, genders, all stand in unequal relationships to the engines of cultural change” (Janes, 2006, pg. 263). Which means certain people or groups have more power over another. Besides as long as mass media has suchan immense platform and the need for higher ratings, they will continue to spread these concepts and misrepresentations. As stated early, all cultures are victims of stereotypes in one form or another, as the Mexican culture has endured throughout history and continues to endure. If people could look pasted the differences and embrace the knowledge and beauty other cultures have to offer, they will be able to form an educated opinion not only about the Mexican culture but other cultures as well. When the individuals of this world can do this, not only will intercultural communication improve but so will the relationships between different cultures.
