Jalapeno Chiles, Mexican Americans and Other Hot Stuff : A Peoples' Cultural Identity
Controversy, passion, and a totally new viewpoint are what Raoul Lowery Contreras brought to more than 200 American newspapers in 1988 when Washington, D.C.'s Hispanic Link distributed his inaugural Op-Ed columns.Contreras is so controversial and passionate that his views draw pain, rage, attacks, complaints and compliments from myriad critics and friends.During a one hour radio program, he was called a "paid agent of the CIA," a "Sandinista Communist," a "traitor," a "patriot," a "criminal," a "sell-out," and, a "coconut," brown on the outside and white on the inside.That was just by his family.The essays and columns in this collection were distributed by Creator's Syndicate and the New York Times Syndicate's New American News Service and published throughout the United States in newspapers of all sizes, from weeklies to massive metropolitican dailies read by millions.There is a new paradigm of politics and issues in the United States, the Hispanic Paradigm, and Raoul Lowery Contreras has chronicled it for all to read, absorb and be affected by.
