Samuel Huntington’s article The Hispanic Challenge argues that Hispanics, specifically Mexicans, are not true American citizens. According to Huntington, Americans are people who believe in the American creed. However, he believes this creed is being threatened. For some time now, large influxes of Hispanic immigrants have been coming to the US and have brought their own culture with them. The writer of Speaking in Tongues, Gloria Anzaldua, believes that Hispanics have the right to hold onto their culture in America.
Not only do they struggle with isolated schools separated from wealthier and better equipped White schools, but they must endure with their inadequate facilities and their lack of solid educators and school administrators. Also, due to the segregated nature of their schools, Latinos must meet much hostility when it is time they enter the workforce, as attributed to white student’s equal amount of segregation from Latino students. Another obstacle they have to deal with that is absolutely vital to the amount of success they achieve in tier life is their lack of bilingual programs being taught in this e segregated schools, due to the lack of bilingual educators. Due to the lack of communication occurring between white school systems and Latino schools, students are losing much potential cultural capital that they stand to gain wit the great amount of diversity occurring between these two groups. Though the solution to these problems is implementing assimilation into both White schools and Latinos schools through effective bilingual programs.

Americans had rarely accepted outsiders as equals, and that was the case with immigrants coming to the U.S in the 1840s to the 1920s. A time in America where immigrants were not considered inferior to native white Americans did not exist. The hatred of anything non-American, especially with the coming of World War I in 1914, would only cause more Americans to despise immigrants. Part of this was rooted simply in racism, which existed towards groups other than African Americans, but much of it was simply that Americans considered themselves the chosen people while everyone else was below them. Thus, despite immigrants being accepted into America, those immigrants were still treated far worse than white citizens between the 1840s and 1920s, for the prejudice against them was obvious even in the laws created.
In addition, their children were forced to study in schools separate from American children, after the historical event from Chinese immigrants in this period resulting in affected the else greatly. Before the issue of the immigration Act of 1965, the US decision made based on the family reunion or contain needed skills would give priority to them live in the US. Therefore, they would not identify racial and ethnic approve of another ethnic live in the US. The African American "forgotten war" in 1812 caused by the inequality and lack of freedom in the US, and, the white people had prejudice and black autonomy in the history, however after American Civil War, Abraham Lincoln and other leaders had liberated slavery in 1965. In the fall of 1906, “segregation plan began, triggering a significant negative reaction in Japan” (P.11).
Most of these are used in a degrading way to describe racial groups. They are usually caused by problems that have happened in the past with that certain group of people. An example of a misconception is that all Latinos in the United States are immigrants. This misbelief had started long ago, because of actual immigrants always crossing over the border. However, this is not true for all Mexicans and Latinos, because some may have been here in the United States for decades and some of them may also have documents of their legalization to live here in America.
One surprising health disparity amongst Latino immigrants involves integration into the American way of life. Upon arrival, most Latino immigrants are healthier than their American counterparts, a phenomenon termed the “Latino Paradox” by researchers at the UCLA Fielding School of Public Health (Gordon). They noticed that when immigrants integrate into the US culture, their health starts to decline. This decline continues the longer they stay in the US. Part of this decline in health is thought to be caused by the addition of highly-processed foods to their diet that are cheap and more readily available than fresh, healthy foods.
Similarly, Latinos also frequently faced disadvantages compared to Whites and other ethnic minorities in terms of education, employment, and wages. As a result, they also have to work in the “3D” occupations of modern America. However, it is entirely plausible that the one correcting factor is the level of education, which translates to English and professional competency. When education level is compared in a controlled setting with other racial groups, differences in employability and wage earning significantly decrease. This reduction in economic gap might be observed more concretely with younger generations of Latin Americans who were either born in the United States or immigrated at young ages if they are given the same access to K-12 education as native Americans.
The study shows the factors that push Mexican American students to become bullies against Mexican immigrant students who practice or resemble their culture. Surprisingly one of the influences that encourages discrimination against Mexicans is the stereotype of racial superiority for being born in the United States. More specifically, this shows as Julian Mendez explains, “Isabel did not understand why her friend made a derogatory slur toward a Mexican immigrant who had done thing
Like Donald Trump recently said during an interview that Latinos especially Mexicans are rapists and criminals. How can that get anymore stereotypical? Anyways moving on, another part that gets to me is when she talked about Latinos getting an opportunity at education. Nothing
