Up until recently, members of Congress, major newspapers, and entrepreneurs in the United States openly racialized Latinos and Latin Americans. Latinos and Latin Americans were inferior mongrels that had to be saved from their ways. Such ideology justified armed invasions of sovereign nations, dispossession of land, and economic exploitation.Noted Latin American, Latino, and U.S. social scientists address the extent and costs of U.S. hegemony. Immigration restrictions, instauration of U.S.-style racism, violence, and suppression of Spanish and intergroup conflict are some of the developments they analyze.
