Stereotypes on Mexicans Have Origin In Efforts To Discredit Mexican Heroes


Villa folklore with roots on anti-Mexican sentiment from British, American authors.

La Cartita --- Many of the contemporary myths that hover over Mexican identity today were first developed by US and British authors in an effort to discredit respectable Mexican heroes, like Pancho Villa, a sober and cerebral man who contemplated defeating the unpopular government in Mexico City and also resented the US colonization of Tejas, New Mexico, Arizona and California, going as far as conducting appropriation of guns and silver from American outposts, which he converted through deals with Wells Fargo.

Never touching alcohol, Villa went from virtual exile in the New Mexico area to creating the heroic Division Del Norte, which struck fear in rich Mexican, American and British oligarch hearts. The myth of a marauding drunk who raped and pillaged was fabricated by British authors, who first linked Villa to Tequila, with the LA Times echoing the thought. The above cartoon is the LA Times 1914 depiction of a non-existing drunk "revolutionary" era Mexican.
