The content enhances the value of this primary source, as it is predominately about changes in African-American employment from the Second World War to 1947, and policies to be implemented in the immediate future. This makes the source extremely relevant to my investigation, being valuable for identifying how Second World War affected governmental policies towards African-Americans. The value of the source is further magnified through its origin. As a document released to the public by the authoritative United States president, the source is likely to be genuine and credible. Truman’s office also enables him to have a direct influence on United States affairs such as African-American employment, making this report that he supervised
Methods and Sources In this paper, I analyzed and used various scholarly sources as my evidence to help demonstrate how Mexican immigrants have been an important economic group to Los Angeles. My mythological approach to this project has mainly included using academic books and a peer-reviewed journal article to help reinforce my thesis. The books I used were Latino Los Angeles, Steel Barrio, and Latino Metropolis. In these books, the authors have either discussed the patterns of Mexican immigration, how Mexicans have had a huge role in contributing to the Los Angeles economy, and the various types of job sectors Mexicans have worked in. One book, Steel Barrio focuses on the steel industry in Chicago, Illinois.
However, after the war, the United States chose to oppose empires in favor of an ever expanding network of trade deals (Oakes 619). With these facts in mind, it’s obvious why such dealings happened in Hawaii, and why the natives were stripped of their lands: money. The book The Queen and I by Sydney L. Iaukea is a very well written and thought out book. I recommend this book to anyone who seeks greater understanding of Hawaiian politics, history, culture, and family dynamics. Sydney Iaukea weaves together personal, historical, cultural, and political narratives in an engaging way to help the reader understand the facts of what happened.
For this week I decided to write a summary of chapter 11: Anglo-Saxons and Mexicans. The new political ideologies were created between 1830 to the 1840s. These new ideas were influenced by pride and obvious racism. These beliefs inspired the idea that American Anglo-Saxons were the dominant force and that they should be the ones to shape the destiny of others. The idea of the American Anglo-Saxon race was influenced by the American Mexican war.
I propose that a significant majority of maquiladora unions maintained a strong relationship with the Mexican State and were nearly to the interests of the capital, therefore unions have been able to defend the worker rights, and explains the presence of independent trade unions and transnational organizations as alternative practices of defense. In the beginning of this chapter, I describe how works the Mexican unionism in order to understand the trade unions in the Mexican maquiladoras as a complex relationship among traditional unions, independent unions, worker coalitions, and transnational solidarity networks. In the next section, I explain the unionism in the northern border region, especially in the states of Tamaulipas, Coahuila, Chihuahua,
He says that putting American workers first is the most important thing. Many Americans support both candidates but the one that wins will have to make important decisions to best benefit the nation and try to make all of the people in the country as happy as
The Bank War, problems with Indians, and slavery were all examples used in the book to depict the political climate of the time period, and how parties were transformed. The book gave an overview of the era and placed Andrew Jackson as a character within the story of the development of America, not the focal point. This perspective is insightful because it shows that while Jackson was a major contributor to the era he is not the only force that determined the course of America. Therefore, it can be said that his ideas were not solely his, but were supported by other groups, which were produced based on the political climate described in the book. However, Jackson must be held accountable for his actions since he was the one who made them, even if the majority of people within the era agreed with his decisions and
Slavery and the importing of slaves became an influential topic for the framers of the Constitution. How much rights would the federal government have, the economics of America, and the morality of slavery and why it was not abolished right away had an important role in the creation of the Constitution that has helped
America 's versatility is its greatest strength, but how it is interpreted by its citizens is what causes conflict. As an American citizen, I am able to enjoy the liberties granted to me by the United States Constitution. I am allowed to speak freely and bear arms. However, I am not able to use these liberties to impeach other 's. It is important to remember that there is a relationship between good and evil, and both will continue to be present in our society; and in becoming an effective member of society, I must understand this and consistently acknowledge it in my own life.

In the reading, “(Re)constructing Latinidad: The challenge of Latina/o studies.” it explains the challenge that is, defining what it is to be a Latino in America. In the reading, it gives reasons as to why there is a challenge, examples include how diverse the Latino community is in America and how others in America perceive the Latino community. After reading the article, I saw two main ideas that Aparicio had and they were; redefining what it means to be Latino in America and to show that there are issues in the Latino community that need to be addressed. Then I will provide my reaction based on the ideas I got out of the reading. The first main idea from the reading was redefining what it means to be Latino in America.
Hispanics have been viewed in different ways and being Hispanic or Latino shows pride because it’s a piece to the puzzle that shapes me. Obtaining an education was always a goal for me. It is the most important thing for me, because it knowledge is power.

Ethnoracial equality is a concept that is being explored in the book as it explores the struggle in the United States to accept the incorporation of historically disadvantaged immigrant groups.

The book examines post-1965 immigration and the ways immigration has evolved the demographics of the United States. The book primarily focuses on the recent immigration of minorities and their political incorporation as well as their history of racial segregation in conjunction with ethnoracial politics. The book provides a clear discussion of immigration, race, and ethnicity.
