They share it with immigrants from the Caribbean Africa Asia Middle East Central America, and other parts of the world. Diverse culture is something that locals can handle as it presents variety and excitement, but not the negative implications that come with it, especially when illegal immigration is involved. Called legal aliens, these immigrants are undocumented or have overstayed their welcome. Despite what the term implies, illegal immigration surprisingly has its share of pros and cons.
This would relate to 1950s America because women had worked on maintaining the country, while the men had gone to war. Gender was evident in both because of Juliet’s opinions, went against the gender norms at the time and women in charge made it a role reversal. Like the example given prior, there are many incidents where gender, a theme from Shakespeare’s play, is a theme that relates to the world around us, and different times in history.
Notwithstanding, many Chicanos stand up for their values and ideals to defend their own culture and spread it around the world; one example is Gloria Anzaldua. Anzaldua denies the comments of Paz and emphasizes that the Mexican culture is antique and useless. She affirms due to her rebelliousness, she was “the first in six generations to leave the valley.” p.2 a shocking declaration. In the modern world, most of the Mexican values have been dismissed and have reached a point where they are not longer apt to adapt to the new world.
However, in the United States it is not a social norm for young Mexican girls to have tattoos or drink and smoke; although, it may for the boys in the U.S. and Mexico, it is much more often in Leon (city in Mexico in which many Mexican-Americans from around this area are from). She began to argue with me that it is very normal, especially in Mexico. But I rejected her assumption, referring back to chapter One. I told her that “social location” is vital in explaining why it is “weird” that she has tattoos at such a young age. Yadira did not seem to understand so I explained to her that in my Soc.
It was a change because back in their hacienda women were housemaids or would stay home and take care of house work. Although some women still struggled with being in the lower class and being in the city. They were stuck with doing forced labor with bad working conditions. The only way they would receive some kind of respect was midwifery. Centuries later women began to gain courage and stand up for what they believe in.
Because of the stereotypes, Hispanics and even those who look Hispanic can face prejudice through names and actions. Latinos of another country can be stereotyped as being Mexican in Southern California because of the large population. Even though Latino cultures share some of the same customs, they are all very different (Chapa 6). 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.
Ginsburg’s poem is connected to my American identity as a political person who also questions America’s roles and decisions in current events; and like Ginsburg, I too am losing my sense of patriotism for my country. While I don’t quite feel as strongly as Ginsberg does about certain topics, I do relate to his feelings about them enough for me to identify as a pessimistically political person similar to him. For me it is nearly impossible to watch or read the news and not see a story about America’s affairs that is insane and terrifying to the point I think “America are you being sinister or is this some form of practical joke?” (1). When watching the current situation involving Russia unfold on the TV screen I can’t help but feel pessimistic about the status of our country; with the president’s ignorance to the dangers of this kind of alliance with such a strong world power and the clear signs of meddling with the presidential election in addition to everything else, everything about the country seems quite bleak.
This gives sociologist a new perspective on assimilation. The level of immigrant replenishment also affects the way that we visually see how minority assimilation is examined. For example with the constant influx of Mexicans it is seen that they do not assimilate as quickly as other minorities. It was interesting to thing that immigrant replenishment was affecting assimilation of Mexicans as much as it is and to see that minorities are not coming to former immigrant gateways as frequently. I live in Escondido where it seems to me that there is a large population of Latinos, possibly Mexicans, and it is more likely that there isn’t as many new immigrants because they are probably going to another city with more labor
She argues that totalitarianism is ruthless and consistent thus it requires sacrifices of their own (8). That is why the Soviet Union won the war but Germany lost it, because they did not pump enough soldiers onto the battlefield. Although this argument is fallible because totalitarianism is not about winning a war, but controlling society. With her argument the sub-question of the title can be revisited; is there still a possibility for such regimes to exist in our age? China and India could easily become a totalitarian regime because these countries have a huge population where many still not politically organized.
Thus, if the land being “invaded” was U.S. territory why would Mexican citizens be found there? They wouldn’t be, and they weren’t. In reality, Mexican citizens were in disputed land that was inhabited by Mexicans long before the U.S. came along thinking it was theirs. To reiterate, to argue the war was just because our land was invaded by Mexico is imprecise as in actuality the land was being
Their names were often publicized, and they were denied other jobs.” (Case Against the Rosenbergs) This was the government’s method of trying to calm and pacify the public and it for the most part worked. The Red Scare, where Americans feared Communism’s rise in our country, was a terrible time for most.
Anne Applebaum states “The really interesting question is not whether torture works but why so many people in our society want to believe it works.” Applebaum is against the use of torture as she questions its effectiveness. America has operated under the false pretense that torture is a viable option for obtaining information. She argues that torture damages the country’s image and does little to acquire useful intelligence. Torture is merely a way for officers to take their anger and frustration out on detainees.
The US did not not have solid reasons to do so besides their own greed, so the US hid behind the idea of Manifest Destiny and tried to justify their actions. John O’Sullivan was the New York City journalist who coined the term Manifest Destiny. He said, “Imbecile and distracted, Mexico never can exert any real government authority over such a country…’’ (O’Sullivan, 8). O’Sullivan and the US suggested that Mexico “needed” the US to come and take over, because otherwise Mexico was going to fall apart. Although this was somewhat true, the US did not try to help Mexico through this difficult time; instead, the US took advantage of Mexico’s weakness and tried to take over completely.
