America is time to get educated about your Spanish speaker 's neighbors! Do you think you could identify each Spanish-speaking culture with its own country and location? The truth is that few people who come from ordinary lives are able to answer this question with confidence and security. Unfortunately, American society has for decades refused to understand the true essence of its immigrant neighbor, making the lack of understanding create conflicts and barriers that prevent the fulfillment of one strong and united American diverse society. Therefore, Americans must educate themselves about their Spanish Speaker 's neighbors to counter the prejudices caused by politicians, a lack of geographic and cultural knowledge, and the physical
Kaepernick has the “right to protest what he says is a flag “for a country that oppresses black people and people of colour.”” I support Kaepernick’s movement because of what they stand for, but not how he created his movement. Kaepernick is still an American, he should be respectful towards the country, the anthem that represents the country 's history, part of the culture. Although I believe that Kaepernick was wrong to do so by sitting during the American anthem, I support his movement because there is the issue of inequality in America. Kaepernick has experienced it
Often, I have been approached by someone who speaks to me in Spanish and assumes I understand. As frustrating as it is, I respond in English to push my need for individuality. We currently live in a world where your looks, your clothes, and your language are all victims of stereotyping. It becomes imperative for us to find our own identity and be unashamed of who we are. Language itself seems to be fighting that battle with us.
Conclusively, Broken Spears is an eloquent testimony that Miguel León-Portilla, so passionately dedicated hard-work and effort to have this book be published. For he is determined to have the Nahuatl passages publicized and have their voices heard, which is something that Gustavo Verdesio would have wanted. As Verdesio argued that passages that have been written by marginalized people are disregard by many historians and authors, and so when a book like Broken Spears is published, it helps bring awareness the argument that Verdesio has been claiming. Proving, that although it may be hard to give into account the stories of those who are marginalized, it is possible to bring those historical anecdotes to light, paving a path for future historical
“Stars and Bars” The confederate flag’s “Stars and Bars” means little to some, heritage for a few, but to others it is a symbol of racism. Confederacy is a part of our country’s history and should be preserved respectably. Recent shootings have brought attention to the Confederate war flag regarding the racist connotation it has towards a percentage of American citizens. When we see the flag flown by individuals we automatically assume that they are racist. Given the symbolic nature of the flag we have means to assume this, though we don’t take into consideration other options like a southern heritage.
Automatically hearing someone speak a foreign language you do not understand you assume they’re talking about you well most of the time that is untrue. Anglos don’t know the language to assume what’s being said neither can they judge it. Finally, after everything latinos go through with being judged and mistreated by Anglos they defend their so speak the Latino tongue. Spanish speakers are they’re going to fight for their right to speak the language. Espada being Puerto Rican from Brooklyn he’s always had to fight for his right to speak his language.
My identity has been constantly fluctuating since I recognized myself as Chicana and Mexican-American. I have always perceived the beauty behind my identify struggle just as others have as well. I am rich in culture because I am of two. The hybridity of both cultures presented a sensation of empowerment while it also has created a division within myself. Through an original art piece, inspired by Judy Baca’s The Great Wall Of Los Angeles, I exhibit the duality
PROP Professional sports leagues should penalize players, coaches, and staff who use their platform to protest or promote political issues. One of the most recent political protests on the playing field was by Colin Kaepernick. Colin Kaepernick refused to stand during the national anthem. He said "I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color.” To him that may just be a way to say we need change in our country because I feel that I am treated differently because of my skin color. But that 's not how everyone interpreted it.
In conclusion, I dearly do hope that the people of America may consider my proposal. It is, dare I say, possibly the best case scenario we could hope to come up with as there is obviously no way to live peacefully with these immigrants if they do not conform. They may come here “seeking for a better life”, but we all know that is a lie; they only wish to disrupt our own lives as there is absolutely no way for people of different cultures to live side by side. Let us all come together to rid these differing cultures and keep us, the original and true
Police officers may have failed the american community but no one is perfect. In my opinion I think that professional athletes should not be able to use their status to protest the events happening in the world. People who support those in favor of insulting america need to step back and realize what they are doing. When it all comes down to it we as citizens need to realize that people make mistakes, no one is
In the letter, Thank You, Donald Trump by America Ferrera, Actress America Ferrera and singer Ricky Martin published scathing, op-ed condemn Trump’s action and rallying Latinos to unite against him. Actress Ferrera said “Mr. Trump, your comments means that you fail to see that immigrants are what have made this nation.” She wants to let trump know that if he truly wants to be president and have illegal-free country, securing America, Trump has to rethink of his outrageous words and apologize to the public, but he only made the case worse by proposing building “the border walls.” Trump repeatedly said that he will build impenetrable walls along the US and Mexico border to keep
What do you think of when you think of the land of America? John Winthrop once compared America to “A city on a Hill” (Artifact 1) Not only do Americans often have a superior attitude towards our neighboring countries, whether that attitude of superiority is righteous or not is in a way up to the eyes of the beholder, but other countries look up metaphorically to the light we shine and want to be included in our secrets. If America were a party, they would crave an invitation. They want to participate in the masterpiece which is the land of the free and the home of the brave. For as long as our country has been around it has been more than just a beautiful location to visit on vacations, it has almost in itself taken the identity of an idea.
That difference is also visible within the racial minorities within the United States of America. From 1990 to 2000, the Asian American population grew by 75% making it the highest growing racial group in the United States. It is mostly consisted of those that are born overseas. There is also a language barrier especially in some ethnic communities within the continent of Asia. There is also a variation regards to citizenship status.
They always look up towards me and will always see me working. My parents always tell me stories how they were raised and how they had little money but they continued to work hard and are blessed with all these things. Being hispanic automatically make anything think that you are a hard worker. They may not know where you came from but know you are willing to do anything at any cost. I plan to teach my future children what it really means to be from a hispanic culture and how they should go out and proudly tell the world who they really are.
Over the past several decades, the racial and ethnic creation of the U.S. population has changed particularly. Minorities are expanding their vicinity in the United States and will keep on doing as such for years to come. The Latino population is driving these changes. While today one of each eight inhabitants of the United States is Latino, it is anticipated that Latinos could represent one of each five occupants. Immigration from Latin America and the attendant growth of the nation 's Hispanic or Latino population are two of the most important and controversial developments in the recent history of the United States.
