Ku Klux Klan'S Campaign Against Hispanics, 1921-1925 (eBook)
Rhetoric, Violence And Response In The American Southwest
de Juan O. Sanchez
Sobre o livro
i The Ku Klux Klan's persecution of Hispanics during the early 1920s was just as brutal as their terrorizing of the black community-a fact sparsely documented in historical texts. The KKK viewed Mexicans as subhuman foreigners supporting a Catholic conspiracy to subvert U.S. institutions and install the pope as leader of the nation, and mounted a campaign of intimidation and violence against them. Drawing on numerous Spanish-language newspapers and Klan publications of the day, the author describes the KKK's extensive anti-Hispanic activity in the southwest.
