    In the “Chicano Moratorium” we saw the protest against the Vietnam War that was held in East Los Angeles in August 29, 1970. On this short documentary we saw the violence that police were using against the protestors which in this case a lot of them were Chicanos. The level of violence that use on this protests was horrible because there was no need for that much use of violence from the police. Honestly all the elements above can be connected to the “Chicano Moratorium”, for example The Decolonization of Minds in the documentary they mention how Chicanos see whites” white people keep remind us that we are nothing but bandidos”. This highlights the element of The Decolonization of Minds because it keeps reminded Chicanos that they’re no good…

    education. However, in the later of the book it focusses on the Chicano movement during the 1970’s. A common theme in Always running besides gang life is police brutality. In one of the primary documents about the rise of the black panthers Huey newton mentions that the police were impolite and would not hesitate to shoot and kill a black male even at time in the back. This reminded me of when Miguel was shot in the back by police officers in Always running and that led an enormous amount of…

    white feminism. I knew what white feminism was, but I believed the word feminism alone was the “right” term. However, I have felt more inspired by “Third World Feminism ”- by “Xicana feminism”. It encompassed more than realizing that being a woman meant being hollered out by men who look like your tio across the street. Maybe for me, it had to do with the way my tia whispered, “hush mija, es tu primo, nada paso”. But, que mas? My re-membering is influenced by Moraga’s story An Irrevocable…

    Chicano is a very common word in a Mexican American population dense area.

    illustrations, posters, magazines and newspapers, the images were an important part of what the ideal is, what an “American” should look like and behave (Sexual Stereotypes in the Media, 2009). This raises eyebrows and questions, how powerful media can be that we as the consumer cannot do much but to obey it? In Chavez-Garcia’s article “The Interdisciplinary Project of Chicana History,” she evaluates the Chicano history by taking a closer look at the ignored area study: La Chicanas. Even when…

    Chicherias were the heart and soul of the chola neighborhoods of Sucre during the Bolivian national period. Though these chola were first considered to be just women with elite sexual connections, their societal roles changed dramatically between 1870 and 1930. The women that ran these maize-beer taverns controlled both the social networks as well as the most important public spaces in those neighborhoods. Consequently, due to their heavy involvement in gossip and politics, chicheras were also…

    The primary goal of this social movement is to fight the Anglo oppression through the emphasis on a united familial unit and cultural identity. With the single objective in mind, the Chicano movement viewed the Chicana feminism as “irrelevant and Anglo-inspired” and completely rejected Chicana feminism from their movement for the sake of unity among the Chicano community (Gomez 184). The Chicano movement regarded sexism as a consequence of racism; this type of sentiment is reflected in…

    sometimes their own language is lost, along with their culture and their true identity. In Gloria Anzaldua, “How to Tame a Wild Tongue”, she explains how the Anglo attacks her language and violates the First Amendment, which made way for a new language to form along with a new identity. In the beginning she gives a scene where she is at the dentist and they are trying to “tame her wild tongue” and explains how speaking Spanish at recess could get her “three licks on the knuckles with a sharp…
