Latinx: The New Force in American Politics and Culture

Abstract:

The Latinx revolution in US culture, society, and politics. Latinx is the gender-neutral term that covers the largest racial minority in the United States, 17 percent of the country. In this groundbreaking discussion, Ed Morales explains how Latin political identities are tied to a long Latin American history of mestizaje, translatable as "mixedness" or "hybridity", and that this border thinking is both a key to understanding bilingual, bicultural Latin cultures and politics and a challenge to America's infamously black/white racial regime..
