Latino Quote Of The Day™ by Dr. Maria Jimenez Roman

mex 300x192 Latino Quote Of The Day™ by Dr. Maria Jimenez Roman“Mexico’s African presence has been relegated to an obscured slave past, pushed aside in the interest of a national identity based on a mixture of indigenous and European cultural mestizaje. In practice, this ideology of “racial democracy” favors the European presence; too often the nation’s glorious indigenous past is reduced to folklore and ceremonial showcasing.”

–  Dr. Maria Jimenez Roman, Afro-Puerto Rican scholar in race and ethnicity.
