Unlike all these stories many of the people in the united states do not know the history and origin of Hispanic racism. In this essay I want to discuss a little bit about some of the history of Hispanics and how this racism towards them originated and some of their stories. We are never really taught about the racist history towards Latinos in the United States.

Latinos Not many people in the United States discuss the fact that Latinos have rioted many times whether it was for their rights, discrimination, or police brutality. All three of these things prove that there has always been this racism and discrimination towards Latinos. There were a couple major events in which Latinos were rioting and protesting. Three major events that prove there has always been this racism towards Hispanics are the following. The Chicano movement of 1960, The Passaic, New Jersey riot of 1969, and the 1971 Roosevelt park riot. Many people will not discuss or talk about any of these events because they don’t care for our history. Unless it has to do with black or white people it isn’t counted as racism.

To begin the first event, I would like to discuss is the Chicano movement of 1960. It all happened in Los Angeles, Ca. This Chicano movement is one of the biggest accomplishments of Latinos to this day. This riot happened during the civil rights era with the main focus of getting rights for farm workers and educational rights for the students. Before this event happened there were already some supreme court cases that passed laws in favor of Latinos and segregated schools. In the article “History of the Chicano movement” published by Nadra Kareem Nittle published on September 10, 2018 it states the following, “Their activism actually predates the 1960s. In the 1940s and ’50s, for example, Hispanics won two major legal victories.”

Both of these victories were in relation to ending segregation in schools with every racial group not just blacks and whites.
