This Label Caused More Harm Than Good
In an opinion piece on CNN, author Ruben Navarrette shares why the title of, “Mexican-American” caused him confusion. It may be the norm here, but try to take that into Mexico, and see how that works.
Perhaps we should learn from his story. Placing a title like Mexican-American, Asian-American or African-American on ourselves only causes more separation from each other. If we are truly the melting pot we claim to be, should we simply be known as Americans?
