    Ah, yes...

    Easy stereotype.

    Ever been to Florida? Low-riding mini-trucks and cars have been driven by
    plenty of non-Latino's, whatever Latino means (Puerto Rican?, Cuban?,
    Mexican?, Colombian?, Brazilian?...). These low-riders are found in rural
    areas too. As a matter of fact, *I* used to own a Nissan pickup which I
    dropped quite a bit and last I checked I'm mostly of Swedish descent, with
    various other North European traces added and I'm not "urban". I rather
    dislike big cities.
