Mexican American Civil Rights

             Orozco wrote a well written, informational book about the rise of the Mexican American Civil Rights Movement. The book is full of facts about Mexican American hardships and their battle to become equal. There were many racist Americans who disliked Mexican Americans. Despite the hate, Mexican Americans came together as one to make a positive change for their families and themselves. There are three crucial topics "No Mexicans Women or Dogs Allowed", covered that need to be discussed and those are the League of United Latin American Citizens, the women's role and lastly racism, inequality & segregation, .
             The League of United Latin American Citizens was founded in 1929. Orozco states, "In February 1929 the four groups would finally unite in an association that would eventually be known as the League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC)." It is the oldest and most widely respected Hispanic civil rights organization in the United States of America. The organization involves and serves all Hispanic nationality groups. The League of United Latin American Citizens had focused heavily on education, civil rights, health, and employment for Hispanics. Ultimately, the League of United Latin American Citizens educated middle-class founders, who included some of the first Mexican American lawyers and teachers in Texas and they felt that they were in the best position to lead the movement. .
             Racism, segregation, and inequality were the kind of negativities Mexican Americans faced on a daily basis. Whites always thought poorly of them despite their effort to move to the United States for a better life and job. Many white people believed that they stole jobs from Americans and didn't deserve to be in the country and wanted them all deported. Mexican Americans were often segregated from the whites because "they weren't superior enough". White supremacy played a big role in this era, and the Mexicans weren't going to have it and fought back for a civil rights change.
