In the article, “Hispanic Heritage Month: Sylvia Mendez” (BTW) I learned that black heritage month is recognized for the history of Mexicans. This situation lets people know more about their cultures and contributions. Mexicans sometimes have hard lives and come to America hoping for a better one. Sylvia Mendez was segregated to California when it was at the lowest, they didn´t allow them to speak their own languages or separate them from the rest.
I think what is happening during this time with Hispanics is not acceptable. It must be horrible to come to a new state just to be treated the same or worst than before. Sylvia is just an example but there are many more Hispanics with the same story or even worst that’s why she met with president bush to create this month where national Hispanics were celebrated for the events they overcame and just, in general, take appreciation of their culture.
Do think Sylvia made a good decision going to bush about her idea of Hispanic heritage month?
