“To survive in peace and harmony, united and strong, we must have one people, one nation, one flag.’’ This quotation of Pauline Hanson defines how important values are, not just for one person or one community, but for a whole nation.

the article written by Claudio Sanchez, it is stated that researchers have determined that Mexican American toddlers do not develop as quickly as Anglo American children. Mexican American children have a delayed development in their ability to speak, read and the development of their senses. I can look back on how many times my parents read to me, engaged me in their conversations and interacted with me; and see the positive affects it had on me. However, my younger cousins did not have to same interaction with adults and only engaged with children of their own age. As a result, I see a difference in how much slower they are developing than I did. I believe If Mexican American children had this interaction, they would be just as smart as the
The struggle for equal education has been an ongoing struggle in American society. On May 17th, 1945, Brown vs. Board of Education demolished the idea of segregation and sparked the African American Civil Rights movement. However, seven years before this court case, another one was being fought. Mendez vs. Westminster was taking place in Orange County, California, advocating for desegregation of Hispanic schools. Two years after the events that took place in Topeka, Kansas, the court ruled that forced segregation was unconstitutional. Since the case, education for Hispanics has been working towards complete equal rights.

Foods is one thing they brought such as, Chocolate, Caesar Salad, and a very big shocker, Hot Cheetos! Many don’t expect certain foods to be from Mexico because of the way it looks maybe, or the way they taste. Clothing is another thing Mexicans brought to the United States.

A poncho is also very big in the American fashion, a poncho is kind of a mixture of a scarf and a jacket. A poncho can be worn by both men and women. A VERY popular one is a sombrero. A sombrero is a fancy hat worn by mostly men, but mostly for parties, or special occasions. An original sombrero is like a straw hat. Mexicans brought many of their traditions to the US. El Cinco de Mayo is a very popular one, El Cinco de Mayo is celebrating the victory of the Mexican army winning against the French empire battle, women dress up in beautiful bright colored dresses while the men dress up in suits with a sombrero and dance a traditional dance. Dia de Los Muertos is another tradition, the whole thing is not performed in the United States.

The Mexican culture is very diverse which has undergone many transformations over several decades and the culture varies widely throughout Mexico and the United States. I will be more focused on the other side of the border and express my findings about the Mexican culture in Mexico.

Following cities include Iztapalapa, Ecatepec, Guadalajara, Puebla, and Ciudad Juarez all ranging with populations of one million to two million Mexicans. The smaller rural communities tend to have a stronger role in defining the country’s collective customs and traditions. The customs
It is true that Mexicans and Spaniards share similarities concerning language and culture, but there are far too many regional variations that make linguists say that Mexican Spanish qualifies to be a separate language, nonetheless, what does differ is that Spain’s political system is a Democratic government with an ‘international’ currency. Additionally, one can find a lot of Spanish influence in Mexican culture such as bull fights, foods like Spanish rice, and yes, Catholic Religion. Yet, it is easy to see the ancestral differences between Mexican and Spanish people due to their many different historical characteristics.
If you don?t know about Mexican culture then I will tell you. I?m going to talk about my culture and that is Mexican culture.Yes,I?m Mexican. I am proud to be Mexican.What I am going to tell you about my culture is my religion,food,events,
Taco and Burrito are both Mexican food, but they are different in ingredients and history. One difference between Taco and Burrito is the history of both foods. Taco are the ancient food which have been eaten since the beginning of American. In contrast, Burrito was invented by an merchant who deside to serve rice and bean without using the plate in 20th century, so Taco have origin older that Burrito.

Burrito is wrapped by flour Tortillas instead of cord Tortillas because corn Tortillas is easy to crack and it should be bigger that the Taco's Tortillas.
If Mexican culture were a quilt, then the many varied fabric patches that comprise its surface would be meals, the batting would be equal parts family and religion, and the thread used to sew the quilt together would be tradition. The people of Mexico consider mealtimes to be of utmost importance in their culture; however, much like an attractive quilt that lacks proper insulation—pretty, but useless—mealtimes lose much of their meaning without the substance that family and religion provide. Mealtimes in Mexico are a family affair, and immediate families in Mexico are typically multigenerational and tend to be quite large. Unlike most Americans, Mexican meals are almost exclusively had in the home—rather than in restaurants—where they are prepared,
Cuba and Mexico share more than just language and existing in what some call Latin America, they are brothers that were raised by the same family, but after coming of age and leaving home they went in very different directions. Cuba and Mexico both experienced the extended struggle to become independent nations and each was forced into a bloody revolution by a different set of circumstances. It is clear that Mexico experienced more change and is to be considered more
