Culture :: Mexican-U.S.Border

Often we turn a blind eye to the things that we don’t wish to see.  Sometimes it’s outside our window and sometimes it’s a hundreds of miles away.  If we don’t see it, it doesn’t exist, right?

Viewer discretion advised

Visually

Although this short animation doesn’t actually show the violence of the Mexican drug cartels, it conveys the reality of a very real problem on both sides of the Mexican-U.S. border.  Although many of us don’t ever see the reality of these problems, it is an important part of American and Mexican culture. And although it is not a flattering aspect of culture, it should be acknowledged just as we acknowledge the more positive parts of culture.
