MESTIZOS COME HOME!

Robert Con “R.C.” Davis-Undiano, whose father was a native of Mexico, his mother from Oklahoma, has long been aware of the racial stereotypes and misconceptions about Mexican Americans and Latinos held by many Americans. And while race-based fallacies and assumptions disturbed him, he didn’t consider these issues to rise to a level of urgent importance.

 

That is, not until after the election of President Barack Obama.

Davis-Undiano, executive director of World Literature Today at the University of Oklahoma, became increasingly dismayed by news reports of rising levels of racial discrimination and violence across the nation.

 

As accounts of race-based violence seemed to escalate U.S. communities, he also was disturbed by the directions in public policy in Arizona, his birth state, across the Southwest, and the country that “were reshaping communities” to suppress acknowledgment of racial diversity, especially “Latino culture and civil rights.” Davis-Undiano cited Arizona’s 2011 passing of a law outlawing the teaching of a Mexican American studies curriculum in the Tucson public schools.

In this landmark work, Davis-Undiano addresses pragmatic questions, such as how these various practices impact Mexican Americans and shape U.S. culture.

The book pays homage to the countless Latinos, including his father and uncles, grandmother and aunts, who sacrificed to build a better future for their families—including today’s Mexican Americans who “work hard every day to keep our community vital and advance the interests of our culture to make America better.”
