"They Don't Know Anything!": Latinx Immigrant Students Appropriating the Oppressor's Voice
Monzó, Lilia D.
Anthropology & Education Quarterly, v47 n2 p148-166 Jun 2016
This article discusses internalized oppression among Latinx communities through a revolutionary critical pedagogy. Data from a two-year ethnography of Latinx immigrant families show that students were developing deficit perspectives toward their parents, claiming that "they don't know anything," based on their positioning as powerless and generationally and culturally out of touch. The article discusses that within-group conflicts support the interests of a transnational capitalist class by severing opportunities for class [and race] consciousness.
