Diversity

The article I chose is about a new indoor marketplace called Hmong Village. The person I discussed this article with is Jmuag, who requested not having his last name used, he is a photographer who lives in Minneapolis. Jmuag believes that this article did not use any stereotypes and was actually substantive. The article did use any stereotypes or general statements about Hmong people. Instead it was an article, which described the Hmong Village and gave some backgroung information about it. The article did feature some quotes from Hmong people but did non of them were used out of context, they were all about the marketplace. Also the story stated that despite the name "Hmong Village," Mexican, Somali, Thai and Vietnamese merchants own shops there and that people of all backgrounds are welcome there.
