Bin, Leslie Mexican American History - 2328 Tovanche, Juan January 29, 2016 Mexican American History In The Classroom "A people without the knowledge of their past history, origin and culture is like a tree without roots.", as said by Marcus Garvey. Some observers may criticize the fact that Mexican American History is taught at the greater academic level, however a more diverse curriculum is fundamental in developing an accurate national identity, embracing a greater sense of history, and to keep citizens culturally cognizant of a world beyond themselves. Mexican American History as well as the histories of other cultures/countries should be taught in the classroom for the sake of cultivating a broader knowledge of humanity. National Identity
Masculinity/femininity and Mexican Culture In the Mexican family, "familismo" describes family pride, loyalty, and sense of belonging. The need for survival strengthens the familial bond, because the problem of one becomes a problem for the entire family. Despite the collectivist view of "all for one, and one for all," a distinct definition of roles is in existence within the family, with an authoritative husband-father who ideally is the breadwinner and a submissive wife-mother who cares for the home and rears the children (Kras, 1995). This statement describes the Mexican culture's belief in Mexican male superiority (machismo).
Hispanic people tend to be very traditional with their beliefs for Holidays like “Day of the Dead” and girls “quinceaneras”. They believe that while it is okay to embrace new traditions you have to keep the old. It is considered respectful and the right thing to do. Another thing about Hispanic culture is that they enjoy family time and take pride in their
In the process of migration, indigenous peoples have been able to solidify their ethnic identity, which has allowed them to establish themselves and to maintain very close ties with their home communities. BY creating communities so similar to their homeland, it further promotes and strengths the bond to the indigenous homeland and increases the difference between non-indigenous and indigenous Mexicans (Salagrado 7). Although indigenous and non-indigenous Mexicans are different ethnically in many ways, they do share some similarities.
The poem “To live in the Borderlands means you”, by Gloria Anzaldua perfectly describes how it is to live here in the valley and be Mexican American and how difficult can be for someone to try to fit in. I have seen how people have been judged only because they misspelled a word or because their accent. Even though those people are trying their best. Everyone should remember that we are equal and that we always should be proud of where we came from.
Although there are similarities between Mexican and American cultures based on Hofstede’s culture theory, culture differences are still exist between the two countries in terms of power distance, individualism vs. collectivism, and time management. Local employees tend to expect to be told what to do by supervisors and they try to manage a close long-term commitment to the organization (Hofstede Center, 2016). Often times, people promise that the tasks or assignments will be competed by a certain time, but their paces are usually slow. This is part of Mexican culture so the expats need to be better prepared and know what to expect (ExpatFocus, 2015). As the information we have collected, most Mexicans do speak some English, but Spanish is
More importantly though, he shattered the notion that working class is something to be feared or escaped. Through his work, people can see that the working-class experience is something to be valued, not ignored or pitied. In his poem “I, too, sing America” the poet speaks of how he is ‘’the darker brother”, referring to his skin color. He speaks of the unjust treatment that he has been receiving from his brothers, solely because of that.

Many of the students attending the Ysleta Independent School District and other schools in El Paso wait on the bridge for hours every morning and cross the border, in order to attend school. The schools in this district are a mix of students from both Mexico and the United States. Even though these students share the same schools, teachers, and class as their American counter parts they still face many different challenges. However, school districts in El Paso such as Ysleta and El Paso Independent do a phenomenal job in not only helping Mexican migrant students obtain the skills needed to succeed in school but also provide a quality education. Schools are well adapted to meeting the needs of cross-border students in part because Texas boasts a rich and vibrant bilingual tradition and not just for Spanish-English instruction, but for many other languages.
They add more value than they cost the economy. Reform of the current laws will allow for those with the H-1B visas to gain citizenship and for those who are here illegally with “anchor babies” to gain citizenship as well. It will be less costly to the government if they become a true part of our economy. A more fluid system where immigrants can come to work and support our country would be ideal. The constraints on these ideas of reformation are in the hands of the lawmakers.
Choosing to be a Mexican over American Today I feel more like a Mexican than anything else even though I was born in the united states. I may have papers and be American but hearing other ethnicities call my people immigrants and illegal makes me feel more like an immigrant myself. I feel this way because although I am considered an American I would much rather stand by my people and my culture. I would label myself as a Mexican-American, Latina, person of color, and as a minority. I describe myself as a Mexican-American because I was born and raised in Chicago and from Mexican descent.
The last difference in this paper is the difference in greeting of other people in the two cultures. In Mexican culture, you greet people by shaking their hands or giving a slight bow when introduced. Mexicans greet women differently than they greet men: when greeting a woman, Mexicans generally bow and only shake hands if the lady extends hers first. American greeting style is informal with just a saying of “Hi” or a brief 3-5 second hand shake. Americans don’t have a separate greeting style for women because they believe in gender equality.
