Derek Ramos 05/05/20 History 117 Professor Domenico Questions: Gabriela F. Arredondo Navigating Ethno-Racial Currents: Mexicans in Chicago, 1919-1939 1. The article recaps the aftermath of the 1919 Riots and how the Committee on Race Relations focused largely on conflict betweens blacks and whites. How do the experiences of Jose Blanco and Elizondo Gonzalez represent the Mexican encounter with Chicago’s racial tension? (400). Mexicans were mistaken as blacks and were targeted as such. Had it not been for Blanco’s retaliation, no one would have known that he wasn’t black. The case went to the state attorney and the Mexican encounter with Chicago’s racial tension. 2. Where did Mexicans settle when they moved to Chicago? What was their experience like? (401) They moved to the near west side, Back of the Yards/packing town, and South of Chicago. They experienced discrimination from all groups. Although they have more in common with Euro immigrants, they more or less were less shunned by nearly every established demographic.
