it was perfect
This book outlines the history of American citizens of Mexican descent being treated as secondhand citizens in America. It details early acts that usurped personal property from Mexican citizens guaranteed land by American law after the Mexican-American war, details how various Bracero programs throughout history set the precedent for calling Mexican labor during strong economic times and then deporting them when the economy suffers, and outlines the current effort to cast all Hispanics as criminal (If people see your entire group as a criminal, then it's acceptable for you to be punished, no matter what the punishment is). This book is an essential read for anyone interested in equality no matter what your race, gender, or creed is.
I read this book for my Chicano Studies class and it was one of the worst ever. It is just the compilation of a radical's racist thoughts. I wouldn't recommend it.
