The Chicana/o Generation and the Horatio Alger Myth.
Cuadraz, Gloria Holguin
Thought & Action, v13 n1 p103-20 Spr 1997
Compares two groups of Mexican Americans with high social standing and educational achievements, but opposing world views: a small group of conservative thinkers who oppose affirmative action and believe mobility in American society devolves from individual merit, and the 1960s Chicana/o political generation, which has gained no prominence in the public debate on affirmative action or social justice.
