Three sources of racial hierarchy in US history - native American colonial policy, African American slavery, and expropriation of Mexican Americans - the ideological logic of racial hierarchy is culture domination, genocide and slavery, directly counter to stated American ideals of freedom and democracy The property rights of Mexicans residing within the new US boundaries was federally guaranteed, but often violated locally - Mexican land tenure rights violated by local courts; this varied from state to state (California, Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, Colorado) - Mexican Americans became a racial group by virtue of being dispossessed of their property - See slide Ideological contradiction suggests need for social science - ideological order of American society is not fully spelled out in legal/political documents Equality versus racial hierarchy: contradiction within America’s ideological order - “we hold these truths to be self evident, that all men are created equal…” Jefferson

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
