Cruz-Janzen, Marta I.
Race, Gender & Class, v9 n2 p47-62 2002
Asserts that racism is part of everyday life among U.S. Latinos and is confounded by U.S. racism. Further asserts white Latinos implement systematic racism against their dark compatriots, supported by institutionalized U.S. racism. Elite white Latinos distance themselves from "social white" Latinos. U.S. racism defines interethnic and interracial persons as persons of color, yet makes them undesirable to all parties. (SM)
