Who are we in the Aftermath of Colonization? Racialization, Gangs, Carnales Chicanxs, and Internalized Racism.

View File

This panel questions the place, role, and importance of Chicanxs in the aftermath of European colonization and U.S. American Imperialism. Against the superficial tendency to define Chicanxs simply as Mexican-Americans, the papers in this panel seek to give a philosophical account of how the power structures that colonized the Americas 500 years ago continue to be enforced in terms of race, which most often criminalize Brown people. These structures of dominance continue to, on the one hand, affect Chicanxs by racializing and criminalizing them in order to place Chicanxs in prison, and on the other hand, continue to be assimilated by Mexican-Americans in the form of internalized racism such that Brown people who work for the U.S. Customs and Border Protection Agency effectively keep other Brown people from entering the U.S.
