So what kind of job does a BA in chicano culture get you ? A sombrero to wear at your job at Taco Bell ? I just don't see any fortune 500 company snapping up graduates with this degree for any meaningful job. But, i'm sure the gubbmint would have a few spots in their diversity committees and think tanks, but not very many. Just another ploy for the university to get 4 years of tuition money for worthless degrees.

That should be an interesting degree from a history & cultural standpoint but probably won't lead to much more than an activists job for the most part. Still, with the Hispanic population procreating as it is, it may be useful later.

On a serious note, do Chicano's consider themselves Hispanics and visa versa?

The name "Chicano Studies" proclaims the program to be racist, just like "Black Studies" proclaims racism. Since you are always wanting to label things others say as racist, perhaps you should take this issue up with UNM who sponsors these programs or look at your own prejudices.

idiotic post. These are programs about studying cultures within society. Don't be stupid.

NO, It "proclaims" a study aimed at Chicano Culture, as do courses on the Greeks, The Romans, etc. Your response to this Fact is where your racism rears its ugly head.

a racist. Perhaps there should be a White Anglo Saxon Protestant studies program. Would the tax payers want to pay for that? Why should they pay for the others?

Hmmmmm -
The four-decades-old Chicano Studies Program at UNM focuses on the Mexican American community from cultural, political and social science perspectives. The curriculum includes courses on gender and sexuality, race and ethnicity, and history and heritage.

That "studies program" is inherent in every class I've ever taken outside studies in other cultures. It's whats been taught and rehashed for 200 years and doesn't wash with out society. Get over it, but that's about to become a minority study. <grin>

You reading ability is rathr lacking IO see. "out" should have been "our" -- sorry -- The jist of all this is: Our Society is made up of all sorts -- all of them have had to deal with the model presented by "you are" in every aspect of their education. NOW, we are quickly becoming a Society with that model as a minority. Interesting change and some just can't get their bigoted minds around it. Cultural Studies are a reflection of a changing Society, not an attempt at racism. The racism is a result of thinking such as his/hers. To answer your question cd - you insufferable POS.

Still the nasty little man with the huge chip on his shoulder huh dpb? I've no problem with cultural studies, or this degree pgm either. I don't see it going very far but if some do I have no heartburn.

Maybe it bothers you becoming a minority, but not me really, at least not to the degree it appears to offend you given your bigoted statements of the past and present.

I wonder how they will try to justify, rationalize and defend the actions & lifestyles of Johnny Tapia or Manny Aragon. But then I won't be a student of that pgm so its immaterial I suppose. There have been plenty of whites who are scumbag fiends too, but there is no "White Studies" pgm so. Just saying...

End result is I don't see it being particularly useful, but for many it could be interesting. For sure it will increase tensions!
