White Latin Americans(wiki)

This article talks about the origin of fair skinned latinos who are often portrayed as white european.  I feel that this article did not really talk about the skin color discrimination that many Latin American countries have. In the article it is stated that “some American media outlets have criticised Latin American media for allegedly featuring a disproportionate number of blond and blue-eyed/green-eyed white actors and actresses in telenovelas, relative to non-whites”. This is actually very accurate which is surprising to see coming from a wikipedia article. The above quote was the only source of skin color discrimination found in the article. I am upset that it did not talk about how Latin American media sources depict indigenous people as lower class and poor. That is the reality of the skin color issue. Wikipedia lacks some information that is crucial to know about and that is where we have to watch out.

According to my research, MIT was deemed as the top university in the world in 2018. I also did some research on MIT’s scholarships and they would only be given out if it is financially necessary.  This goes to show how difficult it is to attend these elite schools. A low income student has to battle two different aspects when it comes to attending these top tier schools. Admittance and financial aid are two problems that higher education bring. These resources show that higher education is definitely a competition to gain privilege of going to a top school.
