Barbara Perry. Silent victims : hate crimes against Native Americans. University of Arizona Press, c2008.

KF9223.P47 2008

 

This book shines a spotlight on hate crimes against Native Americans, which are often hidden in the shadows of crime reports. Perry argues that scholarly and public attention to the historical and contemporary victimization of Native Americans as tribes or nations has blinded both scholars and citizens alike to the victimization of individual Native Americans. Because most extant literature treats hate crimes—even racial violence—rather generically, this work breaks new ground with its findings. She argues that the legacy of violence today can be traced directly to the genocidal practices of early settlers, and she adds valuable insights into the ways in which “Indians” have been constructed as the Other by the prevailing culture. In her conclusion, Perry draws from her research and interviews to suggest ways in which Native Americans can be empowered to defend themselves against all forms of racist victimization.

 

 

Ignacio M. García. White but not equal : Mexican Americans, jury discrimination, and the Supreme Court. University of Arizona Press, c2009.

KF224.H468G37 2009

 

This book explores the historic case of Hernández v. Texas, which became the first to recognize discrimination against Mexican Americans. Led by three dedicated Mexican American lawyers, the case argued for recognition of Mexican Americans under the 14th Amendment as a “class apart.” Despite a distinct history and culture, Mexican Americans were considered white by law during this period, yet in reality they were subjected to prejudice and discrimination. This was reflected in Hernández’s trial, in which none of the selected jurors were Mexican American. The concept of Latino identity began to shift as the demand for inclusion in the political and judicial system began. García places the case within a historical perspective and examines the changing Anglo-Mexican relationship. This book looks at the whole case from start to finish and examines all the major participants, placing the story within the larger issue of the fight for Mexican American civil rights.
