The Chicano Movement in Retrospect
The Chicano Civil Rights Movement of the 1960s serves as a precedent, an antecedent in this ongoing story of the Mexican American experience. One does not need to see him or herself as a follower of this movement but an objective observer of historical fact. Contributions made to this article must also in turn be objective facts.—Preceding unsigned comment added by AVALOS714 (talk • contribs)
After seeing that much of what has been complained about is now ommitted, I say that this article is neutral. Please refrain from passionate assertions and limit your contributions to the statement of historical facts in regards to this article. I therefore call for a resolution.—Preceding unsigned comment added by AVALOS714 (talk • contribs)
This article is one of the most biased I have read in a long time. Statements such as:
- "Such banditry, however, was the exception rather than the rule, as the vast majority of Mexican Americans continued to live under oppression."
- "It was in instituts of higher learning that they began to uncover their own history, a history that was never taught and often deliberately hidden in American public schools"
While I am a great-grandson of immigrants who fled during the Mexican Revolution, I dont follow this movement, so I cannot offer improvements. user:Pzg Ratzinger
racial slur in "Chicano nationalism" section
In addition to a sweeping, unsupportable generalization about young Chicanos, this article includes inflammatory and offensive racist content. In the "Chicano nationalism" section the article not only suggests that discrimination about Chicanos is justified (by their inherent "worthlessness") but also uses a highly derogatory racist image ("the inherent Chicano chicanery mindset") to portray Chicano student activists:
"These same youth are shocked when they are refused employment by Anglos, and blame the Anglos, accusing them of discrimination. Rather than accept their own worthlessness, the inherent Chicano chicanery mindset leads them to blame others. No surprise there!"22.214.171.124 01:03, 26 June 2007 (UTC)
I deleted this part of the article. I invite non-racists to add to the section, as the last sentence is in need of (legitimate) elaboration. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 126.96.36.199 (talk • contribs) 23:07, 25 June 2007
Edit Aztlán section and MEChA description
I wanted to add more information to these sections. I was considering using the following source: <http://www.oxfordartonline.com.libdb.njit.edu:8888/subscriber/article/grove/art/T049509?q=Latin+American+artists+of+the+USA&hbutton_search.x=0&hbutton_search.y=0&source=oao_gao&source=oao_t118&source=oao_t234&source=oao_t4&search=quick&pos=1&_start=1#firsthit />. I think this would be a great resource to enhance the article. Any thoughts? --NJIT HUMCM (talk) 19:06, 1 May 2012 (UTC)
