The first framework, the natural support system framework looks at Latino’s specifically. It shows what is important to Latino’s and who they rely on. According to the framework, Latino’s rely a lot on relationships such as family and friends as a support system. They also see their religion and their own cultural practices as a support system and also events that are cultural based. Through this framework, we can start to see how a Latino person relates to others and who they rely on for support. As people and relationships are vital to them, coming to America and losing all that has got to be hard, therefore for Latino’s, it is vital once they get to America and settle in, that they recreate and find new relationships and people to use as …show more content…
What is their history here in Patchogue New York, are they welcomed or hated? They are hated, therefore their environment here is going to be tense and full of fear, which will then affect the way the see their culture, maybe they will begin to hate that they are Latino and not American, maybe they will try to hide their culture as it is not welcome, this in effect will leave their family dynamics to be completely different than if they were in their home country. The Latino’s might try to Americanize their children more, and the families having to live in fear will raise their families differently than if they were comfortable. The culture of the Latino population may even fade and disappear as the next generation is becoming more Americanized until the only difference between them and the American’s would be their color, they might even lose their language and all of this in response would end at the individual and how all of these factors would affect them alone or the population group alone. If it is a Latino man, how would this affect differently than if it was a Latino …show more content…
It also helps the Latino’s to feel welcome and gives them a chance to teach other people about their culture and lets them know that the community cares about them and wants to integrate them into it instead of separate themselves from them. It would let the Latino’s know that we care and are willing to help them, that their need has not gone unnoticed and that we respect their culture and ways of life but that we also are not afraid of stepping into their culture to get them the help that they need. This type of event will help alleviate any fears that they may have and also give them a sense of pride in who they are and where they come from. This type of event will teach the students not to fear or discriminate these people but instead to welcome and embrace them, that they are not aliens or illegal but instead help them begin to look past what the world says and instead encourage others to see them as real humans with their own culture and allow them to be more readily accepted. It will also help alleviate any fears or misconceptions that the world has of Latino’s within the students so that they don’t associate Latino’s with negative but instead positive
The Latino community is a very varied community each with its own unique past and circumstances.

Hispanics are becoming a large part of the economy in the America and its community. The Hispanic culture is as unique and special as any other, and should be treated with the correct hospitality as any one else. From pop music to food to political campaigns and corporate marketing the Hispanic community has made very strong present in the United States. I think as the years goes by we see that the Spanish community will become the majority, instead of the minority. I’m really drawn to the Hispanic ethic group. I admire there traditions and how they are very family oriented. The overall Spanish culture has brought a lot of traditions and culture to add the American diversity.
The Latino Generation: Voices of the New America is a book written by Mario T. Garcia. This book tells the individual life stories of individual Latino Americans all attending the same class at University of California, Santa Barbra. The book discloses stories and events told by 13 students each who narrate from first person and give us a brief description of their life.

Within this reflection I will describe the key points within this book and compare the stories within this book not only to each other, but also to additional stories of Latino Americans and how Garcia’s book rids the general public of misconception of Latinos.
Armando Rendon in his landmark 1970 wrote the book I am a Chicano. This book is about how activist in the Chicano movement pointed to an empty monolog of the word Chicano. Chicano means an activist. Chicanos describes themselves it was a form of self-affirmation; it reflected the consciousness that their experiences. Chicanos means, nations, histories, and cultures. This book talks about how Mexican American also used the term of Chicano to describe them, and usually in a lighthearted way, or as a term of endearment. In a text it talks how Chicanos haven’t forgotten their Mexican origins, and how they become a unique community. The book talks about how Mexican American community’s long-suffering history of racism and discrimination, disenfranchisement, and economic exploitation in the United States. The
The course, Chicano Studies 50, introduced me to many topics that I never was taught in high school. The differences between high school and college is that in college students are available to many courses and recourses to further develop their knowledge in their culture. Professor Montoya teaches his students in a deeper concept of how Chicanos ideals were developed in comparison to my previous course Chicano Studies 10. The course showed the class brief experiences of farmworker’s struggles and to movements Mexican-Americans decided to accomplish to provided better life for those who were undocumented and for them as well. Culture was introduced in a small description, but like Professor Montoya expressed “… would be impossible with a subject

The increase and changing demography in the United State today, with the disparities in the health status of people from different cultural backgrounds has been a challenge for health care professionals to consider cultural diversity as a priority. It is impossible for nurses and other healthcare professionals to learn and understand theses diversity in culture, but using other approaches like an interpreter is very helpful for both nurses and patients. In this paper of a culturally appropriate care planning, I will be discussing on the Hispanic American culture because, I had come across a lot of them in my career as a nurse. The Hispanic are very diverse in terms of communication and communities and include countries like Mexico, Cuba, Puerto Rico, South and Central America, and some of them speak and write English very well, some speaks but can’t write while some can’t communicate in English at all but Spanish.
An article reviewed, described the term spirituality among Latinos, rather than Latino spirituality, was used to denote different perspectives that may exist across various Latino populations. Multiple, socially constructed phenomena such as racialized and gendered identities, class, immigration status, language, and adherence to Catholic Church doctrine or another religious denomination all may contribute to diversity among Latinos ' expression of spirituality. Personalismo is an important Latino cultural value that is characterized by warmth, closeness, and empathy in one 's relationship with others. In faith experiences, this translates to a direct and intimate relationship with one 's conception of a universal being, which may include Christian concepts of God, Jesus, the Virgin Mary, the Virgin of Guadalupe, and/or various saints

After the Mexican-American War (1846-1848) roughly 77,000 Mexican people became citizens of the United States. Since then many of these citizens and later immigrants have been treated as unequal persons or worse. In the early part of the 20th century Mexican Americans faced injustices such as segregation, inequalities in employment, housing, education, and even frequent hangings. Further, they were not allowed to vote due to the fact that many of them had difficulty understanding English, and were not permitted to learn the language. Mexicans were not allowed to vote, and when they finally were they had to pay money for the right to vote. A large number of the Mexican people did not have the money to pay for this right, so their white bosses paid the fee and told them to vote for a candidate that favored the boss.
During the 1900’s through 1950’s the United States experienced an influx of immigrants coming in from Mexico seeking employment opportunities, as many of them wanted to avoid the Mexican Revolution occurring from 1910 to 1920. Methods for arriving in the United States varied for each individual’s preference of the destination, but the means of transportation had been constant throughout. These methods of transportation consisted of contractors seeking unskilled workers willing to partake in hard labor in steel, railroad, or agriculture companies. Contractors traveled to towns close to Mexico’s boarder such as Laredo or El Paso seeking Mexicans citizens for labors. In some instances, immigrants traveled on their own will based on the advice
Latinos have struggled to discover their place inside of a white America for too many years. Past stereotypes and across racism they have fought to belong. Still America is unwilling to open her arms to them. Instead she demands assimilation. With her pot full of stew she asks, "What flavor will you add to this brew?" Some question, some rebel, and others climb in. I argue that it is not the Latino who willingly agreed to partake in this stew. It is America who forced her ideals upon them through mass media and stale history. However her effort has failed, for they have refused to melt.
It is in the solving of social problems in which Hispanics can be of tremendous service to the country. One of the greatest attributes of hispanics is the willingness to mix, and by doing so, have created cultural forms, new human relationships, and life styles.

The Latino culture in respect to the rest of the United States is a true phenomenon. The numbers of Latinos coming into the United States is steadily growing, with the Spanish language competing with the English language for usage. Latinos are also creating a big impact on the world of politics; their numbers are not only viewed as a wanted asset but as “game changer” to politics. However, there are key factors that influence the voting patterns of Latinos and how they themselves interact in politics. Taking a look at interrelating factors can show Latino’s pattern in voting participation. The strongest predictors of Latino voting turnouts will be based on a strong ethnic background and socioeconomic status coupled with gender.
Political protests are a way to demonstrate disagreement caused by oppression, discrimination, or the simple fact of being different, and feeling threatened by society. Equality is an important value that everyone would like to acquire. Unfortunately, this value of equality is not always applied to all. Political protest have caused a radical change in American society. One of the most important protests that influenced American society in the United States was the Chicano Movement. The Chicano Movement emerged from Mexican-Americans who took pride in their own identity. Their purpose was to fight for equality and eliminate the racism. The Chicano Movement was formed by young students with a large voice that wanted to end segregation; therefore,
