ATTACKING B2= low incomes
Over the last__FEW YEARS/10YEARS/DECADES__ there has been much controversy as to whether it is better to _A=__ BE STEREOTYPED__or NOT to_B=__BE STEREOTYPED ____. Many argue that __B=__ NOT USING STEREOTYPES__is by far the best option, while others claim that __A= __THE WAY OTHER LABEL US __has more pros than cons. In this essay, I will analyze the pros and cons in order to come to a conclusion.
Undoubtedly, _B=__AVOID THE STEREOTYPE CREATED AROUND US __can be a great way NOT to __R1B=___ESTABLISH A WRONG IMAGE FOR OUR COUNTRY__and NOT (to)__R2B=__BE CONSIDERED LAZIES OR PARTY LOVERS__. It's a well known fact that __B=__GETTING RID OF THIS STEREOTYPE__offers US the possibility of __R1example=__PROMOTING CULTURAL VALUES WHICH CAN ALSO BE ENRICHING LIKE ARCHITECTURE, FASHION AND OUR CLOSER FAMILY TIES__ . There is also the cliché that _B=__ AVOIDING THIS STEREOTYPE__ is great because _R2example=__WE ARE NOT FEELING OFFENDED WHEN FOREIGNERS MAKE JOKES ABOUT OUR LIFESTYLE __ .
However, when analyzed in more detail, _B___GETTING RID OF OUR STEREOTYPE __can also be a great source of _PROBLEMS/STRESS/INCONVENIENCE/TROUBLE_. if we look closer, we will realize that _B=___AVOIDING THIS STEREOTYPE __isn't actually all it is cracked up to be. For one thing, __B=__AVOIDING OUR STEREOTYPE __ may (cause)__ATTACKINGB1=__A LACK OF INTEREST FOR TOURISTS _. We shouldn't forget either that B=__AVOIDING OUR STEREOTYPE__ could very easily lead to__ ATTACKINGB2=__LESS INCOMES__.
On the other hand, _A=___BEING STEREOTYPED__offers US a far wider range of possibilities when it comes to _RA1=__ BEING WELL KNOWN__ or _RA2=__ENHANCING THE ECONOMY __.
Take for instance _RA1=__BEING WELL KNOWN __ . Experience shows that __THANKS TO OUR GASTRONOMY AND BULLFIGHTINGS EVERYBODY HAS HEARD ABOUT US AT LEAST ONCE IN A LIFETIME__ . Another major advantage is that if WE should need _RA2=__TO MAKE A LIVING FROM TOURISM__ , all OUR needs would be met.
To sum up, even though _B=__NOT BEING STEREOTYPED __has some advantages like _RB1=__HAVING A REAL IMAGE OF OUR COUNTRY__or _RB2=___BEING JUDGED PROPERLY___, it can also cause_ATTACKB1=__LACK OF INTEREST__ and _ATTACKB2=___ LITTLE ECONOMIC GROWTH___ . Besides, the fact that __A=__BEING STEREOTYPED __ allows US to _RA1=__BE WELL KNOWN WORLWIDE __ AND OFFERS _RA2=__A BOOST THE ECONOMY__, makes it quite clear that _A= __BEING STEREOTYPED __constitutes the best option by far.
A= the stereotype other nationalities B=not being stereotyped
have about spaniards (MY CLAIM)
RA1=flamenco RB1=practising sports
RA2=siesta RB2=working long hours
RB3=less comical effects
When we consider the topic of _A=__THE STEREOTYPE OTHER NATIONALITIES HAVE ABOUT SPANIARDS___, the first thing that comes to mind is __FLAMENCO__ and__SIESTA __ . But is _A=__THIS STEREOTYPE__ really the best/only option when it comes to __REVEALING THE WAY WE ARE__ . This essay will look into the advantages and disadvantages of __A= __BEING STEREOTYPED __ .
Many argue that _A=__BEING STEREOTYPED __ is the wisest choice as it allows US to _R1A= __TAKE ADVANTAGE OF OUR CUSTOMS TO EXPLORE NEW WAYS OF GENERATING INCOMES __ and there is no denying that __A= __ HAVING A STEREOTYPE__ is also a reasonable course of action for US IF WE wish to_R2A=__ BE LABELED IN ORDER TO DRAW MORE ATTENTION __.
Yet, there are factors like R1B=__SPORT__ or R2B=__WORK __ that should also be taken into account in order to make the best choice. There is much more to life/WORK than just __R1A=__FLAMENCO__or R2A=__SIESTA__ . According to the latest research, 75% of __THE SPANISH__ value __R1B=__PRACTISING SOME KIND OF SPORTS__ over _R1A=__DANCING FLAMENCO__. Also, if you consider the fact that __R2B=__WORKING SOME OF THE LARGEST HOURS IN EUROPE __ plays a crucial role in __KEEPING OUR ECONOMIC SYSTEM __ , then _A=__BEING LABELED WITH THIS STEREOTYPE __does not seem to be such a great idea after all.
Moreover, __B=__NOT BEING STEREOTYPED__ has two additional major advantages, namely _RB3=__LESS COMICAL EFFECTS __ and RB4=__LESS PREJUDICE __.
If _RB3=__BEING HIGHLY RESPECTED ___ ranks high on your priority list, then _A=__BEING STEREOTYPED __ should definitely be out of the question. And last, but certainly not least, WE must consider whether __RA4=__FEELING MISUNDERSTOOD WHEN BEING PREJUDGED__ is an issue for US. If so, then _B=__NOT BEING STEREOTYPED ___ is likely to be a much better option for US.
To sum up, although on the face of it _A=__HAVING A STEREOTYPE __ sounds like a good idea when it comes to __HAVING A FIRST IMPRESSION OF SPANIARDS __, a more in-depth analysis suggests otherwise. In fact, most evidence points to the fact that if _RB1-RB4=__PRACTISING SPORTS, WORKING LONG HOURS, AVOIDING MOCKING COMMENTS AND NOT BEING JUDGED WRONGLY __ is what WE are after, then _B=__NOT BEING STEREOTYPED __ will probably work best for US.
