Who is to say that robbing a people of its language is less violent than war?
—- Ray Gwyn Smith
Just finished reading “Borderlands/La Frontera” by Gloria Anzaldúa and found this quote to be very intriguing. It’s such a shame how people were stripped of their culture, their rituals and most importantly their language.
However, I really liked this book & the way it was written.
I would recommend it for anyone interested in the Spanish language, feminist themes or Chicano studies.
