"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.
"When a Vietnamese family is driven out of its home in a project by African-American youth, that is white supremacy. When a Korean store owner shoots an African-American teenager in the back of the head, that is white supremacy. When 33 percent of Latinos agree with the statement, ‘Even if given a chance, [African Americans] aren’t capable of getting ahead,’ that is white supremacy."
