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.

And although it is not a flattering aspect of culture, it should be acknowledged just as we acknowledge the more positive parts of culture.
