Stupid people are so stupid they think they’re smart; ditto for pendejos who think everyone loves them. This well-documented phenomenon — the Dunning-Kruger Effect — is most evident in a gigantor vortex of bullshit that’s darkening the skies over 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, Washington, DC.

Not Mine is my graduate project in Graphic Design at the HIT college in Israel. My thesis is that nothing is original, therefore, none of the materials presented in the project were made by me. All of the 469 photos used in this video were taken out of Google’s image bank.
“You don’t look Mexican” is something I hear a lot. I hear it from whites, African-Americans, Asians, Mexican nationals, Latinos from Latin America, just about everyone. Of course, in polite company, I usually respond, “Oh, yeah, I get that a lot.”
In my head, however, I usually think, “What, exactly does is a Mexican ‘supposed’ to look like?” This is, in turn, followed by some expletives.
I find it uncanny that, in 2011 with a country and a world that is increasingly multiracial, that educated people still assume that certain people are “supposed” to look one way or another. Boggles my mind.
