Spanish rule established a social hierarchy based on skin color and male female inequality- during the colonization of Mesoamerica has had a lasting effect on Chicano’s self-perception and identity.
My research paper spoke of the lasting effects that Spanish colonialism its institutions have had on Chicanos. The social institutions that I focused on were the caste system and inequality of the sexes. I tried to explain how there two institutions influence the relationship between skin color and Chicanos and identity within inequality of the sexes.
