Discussion (Hispanic Cluture History)

Read chapter 4 and 5 in (harvest of empire book) + the files I uploaded to answer the following questions. Please, answer each question separately.

1. Do you think Puerto Rico should become the 51st state of the United States, remain a territory of the United States, or become an independent country? Why?

2. Why do you think the outlaw hero, such as Pancho Villa, Joaquin Murrieta or Gregorio Cortez, is such a powerful figure in Hispanic culture?

3. Describe some of the rights that Hispanics have fought for in the United States from the 1940’s to the present day. What are your thoughts and reactions to this part of Hispanic history? What kind of discrimination do Hispanics in our community still face?
