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.

synopsis
synopsis

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.

  • How do these relationships reflected in Latino’s internalized racism?
  • How does the caste system of the past influence the varying degrees of privilege people are given today?
  • how does inequality of the sexes limit the freedom to self identify?

  • Social issues that Chicanos face today are related to the actions of the past.
