ExamВ 1В

InВ GuatemalaВ theВ racialВ andВ classВ separationВ hasВ toВ doВ primarilyВ withВ theВ indigenousВ populationВ andВ theВ Ladinos. В TheВ indigenousВ populationВ focusesВ onВ theВ pureВ MayanВ wayВ ofВ life, В byВ speakingВ theВ MayanВ languageВ andВ followingВ theВ traditionalВ religionВ andВ villageВ customs. В TheВ IndigenousВ populationВ sufferedВ fromВ discriminationВ andВ poverty, В whileВ beingВ geographicallyВ separated. В ViolenceВ andВ repressionВ notВ onlyВ affectedВ theВ biologicalВ continuitiesВ ofВ theВ indigenousВ livesВ butВ alsoВ theВ cultural. В ThereВ wereВ policiesВ thatВ hadВ aВ soleВ purposeВ ofВ destroyingВ MayanВ communitiesВ bothВ physicallyВ andВ emotionally. В В TheВ governmentВ triedВ toВ suppressВ theirВ cultureВ andВ forceВ themВ toВ assimilate. В CorinneВ CaumartinВ said, В " toВ beВ ladinoВ nowВ denotedВ untilВ recentlyВ anВ essentially ‘nonВ­indigenous'В identityВ ofВ individuals” (p. 11)В meaningВ thatВ ladinosВ wereВ strictВ onВ whoВ theyВ acceptedВ andВ aВ personВ orВ groupВ hadВ toВ beВ ofВ theirВ standards. В TheВ baseВ ofВ theirВ historyВ isВ theВ reasonВ whyВ theВ indigenousВ peopleВ ofВ GuatemalaВ haveВ sufferedВ throughВ racismВ andВ poverty. В GuatemalaВ inВ theВ 1960sВ sufferedВ throughВ violenceВ toВ theВ pointВ whereВ manyВ peasantsВ " facedВ detention, В torture, В andВ sometimesВ death” (StateВ ViolenceВ inВ GuatemalaВ 25). В InВ theВ 1980sВ theВ indigenousВ peopleВ demandedВ thatВ theВ governmentВ respectedВ theirВ humanВ rights, В butВ " theВ

governmentВ wasВ farВ fromВ receptive: В protestersВ wereВ deniedВ aВ hearingВ inВ CongressВ andВ theirВ legalВ adviserВ wasВ assassinatedВ outsideВ ofВ policeВ headquarter” (StateВ ViolenceВ inВ GuatemalaВ 35). В В TheВ experiencesВ ofВ theВ indigenousВ areВ similarВ toВ thoseВ ofВ theВ AmericansВ becauseВ ofВ howВ peopleВ areВ treatedВ andВ theВ classВ systemВ behindВ it. В InВ GuatemalaВ theВ indigenousВ populationВ areВ differentВ fromВ theВ Ladinos, В whichВ isВ " unacceptable”. В TheВ AmericanВ IndiansВ (i. at the. В Penobscot, В Cheyenne, В Gwi'chin, В andВ theВ Navajo)В haveВ sufferedВ fromВ environmentalВ racismВ byВ theВ governmentВ andВ factoryВ ownersНѕВ thisВ hasВ leftВ theirВ peopleВ toВ protestВ andВ protectВ whatВ isВ theirs. В TheВ CheyenneВ IndiansВ wereВ fightingВ againstВ methaneВ wells, В whileВ theВ PenobscotВ wereВ guardingВ theirВ waterВ fromВ theВ pollutionВ dueВ toВ theВ paperВ millВ factories. В ThisВ isВ onlyВ aВ fewВ ofВ theВ issuesВ thatВ tribesВ haveВ facedВ dueВ toВ environmentalВ racism, В andВ itВ provesВ thatВ AmericansВ haveВ experiencedВ similarВ discrimination. В ForВ theВ indigenousВ people, В inВ orderВ toВ becomeВ aВ ladinoВ oneВ mustВ adaptВ toВ theВ westernВ clothingВ andВ speakВ spanish. В ForВ theВ AmericansВ weВ mustВ adaptВ toВ theВ governmentsВ " wayВ ofВ life” inВ orderВ toВ succeed, В justВ asВ theВ indigenousВ peopleВ ofВ GuatemalaВ haveВ toВ adaptВ toВ theВ ladino'sВ " wayВ ofВ life” inВ orderВ toВ becomeВ successfulВ andВ escapeВ poverty. В TheВ onlyВ problemВ isВ thatВ theВ indigenousВ andВ theВ IndianВ tribesВ areВ pridefulВ peopleВ withВ beliefsВ ofВ theirВ own, В andВ wouldВ notВ wantВ toВ expressВ theВ beliefsВ ofВ others. В В

TheВ indigenous'В fightВ throughВ povertyВ beganВ withВ colonization. В OnceВ theВ SpanishВ hadВ conqueredВ theВ indigenousВ peopleВ becameВ slaves, В andВ " capitalismВ cannotВ workВ withoutВ freeВ labor” (HomelandВ video). В TheВ demandВ forВ wealthВ createdВ barbaricВ ideasВ inВ orderВ toВ gainВ powerВ andВ moneyНѕВ whichВ ledВ toВ slaveryВ andВ eventuallyВ poverty. В TheВ indigenousВ populationВ doВ sufferВ

TheВ socialВ classВ isВ basedВ onВ wealth, В education, В andВ familyВ prestigeВ whichВ operatesВ asВ aВ sortingВ mechanismВ amongВ bothВ IndigenousВ andВ Ladinos. В RaceВ isВ alsoВ clearlyВ aВ component, В butВ mayВ beВ lessВ importantВ thanВ cultureВ andВ lifestyle. В However, В IndiansВ asВ aВ groupВ areВ poorerВ andВ lessВ educatedВ thanВ nonВ­Indians. В InВ theВ 1980s, В illiteracyВ amongВ IndiansВ wasВ 79В percent, В comparedВ withВ 40В percentВ amongВ LadinosВ. В InВ 1989, В 60В percentВ ofВ IndiansВ hadВ noВ formalВ education, В comparedВ withВ 26В percentВ ofВ Ladinos. В IndiansВ withВ thirteenВ orВ moreВ yearsВ ofВ educationВ earnedВ aboutВ...
