Declining Interest In 'Chicano Studies' Reflects A Latino Identify Shift

I think that the lack of students in SDSU Chicana/Chicano studies program may be not a lack of interest on the part of students rather a lack of faculty connection with the student body. Who many of the faculty are CHICANA/O?

The term Chicano means that you are proud of Mexican roots (indigenous, mestizo, African, Asian etc.) and you are a critical thinker when it comes to our reality in the U.S. It means that you are politically aware and ACTIVE in creating change for our gente. You can be Mexicano, Mexican-America, Latino, Salvadorian, Apache, etc. and still be a CHICANO.

Aztlan is not as the 1970's activists would say "the land stolen from Mexico"..... because quite frankly that land was stolen by Spain, England, France, etc. from the indigenous people who were hear already for over 50,000 years.

So to a modern 21st century CHICANO, where ever there are Mexcoehuani (Nahuatl for those that have arisen from Mexico) AZTLAN is there.

..."Can you be Chicano but be against illegal immigration? Vote for Mitt Romney? Can anybody major in Chicano studies?..." If you are a Chicano, you will see the deep historical and economic reality of "illegal immigrantion" a reality that goes far beyond the hateful 5 second soundbits of Fox News. If you are a Chicano you will see that the true effects of the Mitt Romney world is anti-poor and anti-diversity, so you would not be voting for that, and ANYONE can major in CHICANA/O studies!!!! :)

U-T San Diego's Mayoral Poll Skewed Republican

The Union Tribune has become a trash newspaper that panders to the old Republican guard of San Diego. I foresee it going out of business within 2 years. Manchester is the worst thing to have happened to honest investigative journalism in California.

ACLU Teams Up with Anti-Obama Marine to Fight Dismissal

I cannot believe the ACLU would defend this guy.....

If this guy was selling anti-Bush stuff, all the right wing AM radio fools would be foaming at the mouth about how "unpatriotic" this guy is.

But since it is about President Obama....... they all are defending his right to "free speech!"
