The League of United Latin Americans (LULAC for short) is an alliance whose campaign focuses on equalizing the rights of Latin Americans (“Mexicans”) with white Americans and fighting to preserve the socio-cultural specificities of Latin America. Its goal was to create an environment where discrimination based on race and nationality would not exist, and people would not be evaluated based on origin or place of service. In addition, the passage in question touched on the causes of discrimination against Latinos (Foner, 226). It is noted that Latinos are Native Americans whose culture and everyday life have invariably influenced society, yet they were discriminated against during and after World War II. As we know, people usually operate on differences in race and nationality, but there are no proven biological differences. Thus, discrimination is based on people’s hatred and prejudice rather than on facts, giving no leeway to offensive behavior. Harassing and discriminating against Latinos manifests ignorance and disrespect for cultural values and traditions, thus showing disrespect for all that Latinos did for WWII.
