Paper details  

In her essay “Chicana,” Martha Serrano asserts that “being Chicano/a is more than being an American of Mexican descent….It means being politically and culturally aware….Most of all it means resisting assimilation into mainstream American society”(152). By contrast, in “Living in Limbo: ‘To Be American When You Are Not” Isaac Polanco accepts his duality as both a Dominican and an American and concludes,” I am proud to be able to involve myself in different cultures and have them in my reach” (17). Even though your own nationality may be different than these authors, do you relate more to Serrano’s view or Polanco’s view? Why? Present some reasons for your position
