    I wrote asubstantial paper about the racial essentialism in this book, but here I will only give a short explanation for why it s a mediocre book Before beginning, I should state that Ior less accept Anzald a s account of southwestern history, but I disagree strongly with her political goals conclusions, methodology, and understanding of race nation.1 The poetry is not good Anzald a might be a great poet in Spanish I can t read Spanish, so I don t know but she is not a g I wrote asubstantial paper about the racial essentialism in this book, but here I will only give a short explanation for why it s a mediocre book Before beginning, I should state that Ior less accept Anzald a s account of southwestern history,...
