    Sharing America
    by Jason Boog
    A Guatemalan boy asked me once, "Do people die in the United States too?" He'd seen too many people die in his poor village and imagined that life was somehow perfect here. Hundreds of thousands of Latin Americans come to the U.S. chasing after equally unrealistic dreams about America. But when I read about racial tensions dividing neighborhoods in Queens or the immigrant fight to earn a living wage, I think that U.S. citizens have some equally harmful misconceptions and attitudes about these new arrivals as well. My portfolio will explore fantasies and stereotypes from both sides, focusing on how we learn to share America.
