The Hybrid of displacement The poem chosen that mostly represents the confusion of assimilation and the sense of uniqueness is Gloria Anzaldua’s: “To live on the Borderlands means you…” because it describes the inner and outer displacement in both a negative and positive light, versus having an understanding of her own identity and embracing hybridity. She has all of her emotions out in the open and sheds a light on the struggles she has faced and others may have too. It iswritten in English and certain phrases or words with which she wanted to make a statement are in Spanish. Terms like “gabacha – a Chicano term for white women”, or “rajetas – literally ‘split’, that is, having betrayed your word”, give the poem a sincerity and straightforwardness
I agree with what you say about de las Casas "narratives were only effective to an extent. " I think it was admirable what he did do because the atrocities may have continued for much longer had he not spoke up. In speaking up, Casa was "accused of treason and even endured charges of heresy" (Bartolome De Las Casas 39). Casas went into seclusion for 7 years and then returned to political activity after which time, laws began to take effect to protect the Indians (39). I see de las Casas as an early activist and social reformer.

Little Assassins: Perpetrator or Victim? Los Niños Sicarios, a film by Rob Lambert, captivatingly transports us to a world of Breaking Bad calibre that I for one know very little about. The title refers to child hitmen, who are brought under the exploitative wing of Mexican drug cartels for their dirty purposes. The film’s genius lies in its blurring of the line between appearance and reality.
The book Enrique’s Journey by Sonia Nazario is a nonfiction book based on a real story told throughout 367 pages. The reason why I decided to read this book is that it was highly recommended by one of my former English teachers. I was extremely persuaded to read this book by her but I also personally believed that by reading this book I would gain a new understanding of life by really opening my mind to new experiences that other people go through.
While reading De La Torre, I noticed the narrator stating a metaphor of the pig skin and football being condemned into hell. This then made me think on how many times peoples predisposition cloud their judgement of others and there way of worship. I know it is enviable to not have a bias opinion because everyones opinion is based on where they grew up and what hardships they have gone through. I do believe that people read the bible and have different interpretations because in different culture and denominations one verse can be interpreted into many different meaning. Some may be similar in definition but have a different affect on the congregation or person reading.

An American can be defined as many things, like a person who lives in the American continents, someone who has an American citizenship and etc. However, it seems that in most situations, an American seems to be someone who desires money.
