Most of us know we are not European simply by looking in a mirror... the shape of the eyes, the curve of the nose, the color of the skin, the texture of the hair; these things belong to another time, another people. Together with a million little stubborn mannerisms, beliefs, myths, superstitions, words, thoughts... they fill our Spanish life with Indian contradictions. It is not enough to say we suffer an identity crisis, because the crisis has been our way of life for the last five hundred years.

- Luis Valdez, Tale of La Raza, Bronze 1, no. 1. reference quote: Muñoz, Youth, Identity and Power but really quoted in The Bronze Screen: Chicana and Chicano Film Culture by Rosa Linda Fregoso.

Viva La Raza.
