Racism against the Mayan Population in Yucatan, Mexico: How Current Education Contradicts the Law
Mijangos-Noh, Juan Carlos
Online Submission, Paper presented at the Annual Meeting of the American Educational Research Association (San Diego, CA, Apr 13-17, 2009)
The discriminatory situation suffered by the Maya population in the Mexican state of Yucatan is discussed using the concept of neo-racism. Statistical evidence about the school system is presented, along with testimonies of Mayan speakers which uncover a phenomena frequently denied or obliterated by politically correct speeches that actually serve to disguise the racism practiced against the original population of Yucatan. The paper also shows how this phenomenon contradicts the Mexican laws.
