Shared Assumptions about Mexicans

The Bionic Mexican

There are a couple of these clips on the adult swim website from the Robot Chicken show. In each, we see a cliche image of a "Mexican" in a sombrero that plays to all of the hackneyed representations of Mexicans, reviving the image and thus keeping the dominant accusation of deficiency alive in the public discourse.
