The Crown of Spain continued his control of New Spain, but ceased the sending of new settlers to the territory. A new cultural group emerged during this time, called the Tejanos, Mexicans living in Texas. The Tejanos face some of the same discrimination today as they did in the 18th and 19th centuries, because they were neither fully Mexican or fully Texan. This became a major issue after the Texas revolution from Mexico, as many viewed the Tejanos as loyal to the Mexican side and disloyal to Texas. Additionally, during this period of establishing the new territory, many began to assimilate with the Native Americans (and some African Americans residing in the territory).
Latino countries all celebrate a girl 's quinceanera but not all of them celebrate the Day of the Dead. There are different customs, traditions, and artifacts in each country and should not all be classified as one culture. There are also subcultures within each country, such as the Zapotecs in Mexico. All these subgroups have come to America to catch the American dream and have different backgrounds. They should be respected for their values.Hispanic culture as a whole does have some traditions they share.
According to these groups the majority of them work, reside, and coincide together, however, they do try to maintain a certain sense of individualism. I believe the Mexican culture is primarily hierarchical which means there is a leader or leaders within their group. I have learned that the male or father figure is primarily the family’s leader. In fact, some Spanish cultures find it offensive for anyone to talk
Leslie Gomez Hernandez v. Texas During the 1950 life for Mexicans was really difficult, they were not considered intelligent, they were considered invisible. They were not allowed in some parts like restaurants, movie theaters and other parts. But things changed by the early 20th century, they were now considered white by law, largely owning to the treaty’s grant of American citizenship. But still their status has citizens didn’t meant a lot. In 1954 the Supreme Court’s ruling in Hernandez v. Texas extended more rights to Latino citizens.
It explains that this Mexicans are not treated equally as others, because they come from other country crossing the border. There is no that much explanation for the logos part of the article, it just gives us a hint by saying immigrants. As I mentioned in the above, the article is so emotional explaining the life of Mexicans. Especially the story of de haro. It is so emotional that "they are not even called Mexicans when they found dead, they called ILLEGAL aliens or illegals."
In the essay “How to Tame a Wild Tongue”, Gloria Anazaldúa demonstrates the diversity of the Spanish language. The language is broken into sections, and I agree that when speaking to other Hispanics from different countries it may seem like a completely different language. Being fluent in Spanish, I’ve noticed how this process works. Different accents and words influence the diversity, sometimes making it difficult for two fluent Hispanics to communicate. Countries, such as Argentina, have an accent and a language that differs tremendously from other forms of Spanish.
Mexican immigration has been a controversy in the United States before 1980. According to Jie Zong and Jeanne Batalova, Mexican immigration can be divided in three waves: the first one, before World War two, the second one started with the Bracero program, and the last one after it. Nevertheless, Mexican immigration can be seen as something threat or as the opposite, a benefit to the country and it all depends on which side you want to be. The American, Cesar Chavez who was a farm worker, also creator/leader of the United Farm Workers Union, influenced ad contributed to United States history by using Mexican’s “dignity” and nonviolent strategies to showed Americans that Mexicans could accomplished hard work and being successful for the country. Mexican’s deal with discrimination since 1962, schools, minorities, and farmers were the main target, this guide Chavez to create the National Farm Workers Association, now the United Farm Workers Union.
So that they will have equal rights as the whites in front of the laws on court, and end the Jim Crow laws. Although this didn’t all happen at once, but it was starting to progress. The Great Migration happened through world war one, a lot of blacks moved to the northern part, since there are more jobs available. However they still worked with the same jobs they got in the south, since they are not well educated or skilled. More and more poor blacks gathered together in the north, and the communities they lived in has a high crime rate.
From my personal experience, stereotypes blind human form seeing people for who they really are and through stereotypical threat affect our performance and behavior. In other word, due to stereotypes, people are misunderstood. We need to everything in our power to eliminate stereotypes and view people for who they really
While an argument can certainly be made for this theory, it is better explained by the context it is presented in. When thrown back into society, all of the progress Huck and Jim have made striving for equality is negated by the fact that they are back in white society. The PBS film “Born to Trouble” explores this possibility. Specifically, the professor from Seattle notes how the inclusion of the words and actions critics deem offensive are what give Huck Finn its power. Without them it would just be another book, without any real lesson on racism and the evils that pertain to it (Born to Trouble).
