Bad Influences from Cheerleaders

I watched "Bring It On - Fight to the Finish" with my wife and daughter. (Ok, dudes, let me have it. Just loving my girls!) We have seen all four "Bring It On" movies and were completely dissatisfied with Fight to the Finish.

The movie gave bad images of East Los Angeles Latinos and Latinas. For example, the main character, a Cuban-American teenager, was rude and disrespectful to her step-dad. Also, there was a scene in which two East LA Latina's provoked an almost fight with a white girl for looking at them. "What are you looking at?" This question was asked of the white girl from Malibu. She replied, "Nothing." I laughed because I thought the same. However, the image was still there in my mind when the movie ended.
In addition, there were numerous times throughout the movie that at least one Latina was provoking some kind of violence. Distasteful and disastrous.

I know, it's only a movie - right? Well, what is your opinion? Do you think the images were reality? Do your teenagers act this way?

Yeah, I know Roberto. I just get frustrated because the whole stereotype image is so wrong. Maybe the people who write scripts that contain Latinos should hang out with them first to gain their material. Hey, maybe I should write a script. Now, that would be funny!

My girl is way too young to act up. The problem with Hollywood is that for the most part, most movie scripts are written by people who are NOT Latino, so we will see stereotypes continue.
