Erasing the Chicano Presence

Posted by ritualground on March 21, 2007

When you have people risking their lives in the line of fire for your country’s cause, and who are even recognized by the government in such a way, and after so much minimalization and abuse; to purposefully omit their presence on what is sure to be a much-respected historical film—this is utter disrespect.
