Comparative Strategies of the Black and "Chicano" Movements in Achieving Economic and Social Justice.
Frequently references to spokesmen and issues of the Chicano movement for social and economic equality refer to prior experiences of the black American mass social movement. Through examining both mass social movements, it becomes obvious that exact comparisons are misleading. Numerous similarities in economic, social, and political suppression and exploitation have been experienced by both movements; but significant differences between the two movements make such comparisons inaccurate and misleading. First, linguistic and cultural differences are pronounced; second, different attitudes exist toward family structure and responsibilities; third, differences in attitudes of society in general have resulted largely from the historical distinction between a "conquered" people and a"captured" or "kidnapped" people. Effects of these differences justify unique remedies rather than merely adapting those techniques used to resolve black American needs as solutions to resolve Chicano economic and social needs.
