Re: “A Few Thoughts On the Mexican American Studies Trial

Huppenthal seems to forget that this counties fore fathers spoke multiple languages and encouraged it because if further proved you didn't have to be rich from a good family to be an educated gentleman. Worries me he is so focused on English only, yes it's a key to success but it's not a corner stone. Plus US history books kinda skip over how they broke their own treaties and laws to steal land. Maybe he can explain to me how a little less then half a million in acres is taken legally from the original inhabitants? Plus wish my grandmother was still alive so he could to tell her the lynching of her grandfather was legal. Maybe he can explain to her why she wasn't allowed to buy that land back let alone any unless specifically designated, till civil rights movement. Horne might be able to answer me how I go about requesting for our ancestors to be exhumed off land that was theirs, but belongs to the state and private owners...but these are just problems for those whose families have been here for generations before the deceleration of independence.
