History and Predicaments of Latinos

History and Predicaments of Latinos
In the modern world, America as a continent comprises of the Free states. At face, these states demonstrate and value disparities which suggest the absence of significant and intensive relationships among these states. The Northern Americas are mainly Canada and the United States of America. These have significant developments as it can be seen from their consistent feature when it comes to the discussions of socioeconomic issues globally. The Central Americas, Southern Americas as well as the Caribbean countries are struggling economically. Most of the citizens in these countries are enduring abject poverty.

However, these states have intertwined histories. The other regions of the larger American Continent are affected by the U.S.A’s history. This has impacts which include the current presence of Latino Diaspora within the U.S.A as well as the difficulties that they face. My conviction is that Latin Americans are not patriotic due to Magna Carta of the American which was selfish leading to the expansion of the Latin American’s Diaspora in the U.S.

Magna Carta is a historic document whose signing took place in the June of 1215. It was signed by King John and the medieval England’s magnates. The aim of this document was to offer King John’s subjects assurance that they would have governance whose basis would be feudal laws. This would protect them from tyranny subjection. The U.S founding fathers were inspired by this document at the time of American Revolution because their belief was that their rights were similar to those indicated in Magna Carta. After attaining independence, the U.S laws embedded some of the Magna Carta’s clauses. For instance, the 5th amendment provision that states that nobody shall be deprived of liberty, property or life without following the due process of the law.

The continent of the Americas has a rich history in both sociopolitical and cultural issues. The existing distinction between the Latin American nations and the U.S is due to the events that occurred from 1500. The Spanish and the English were the two main European governments which colonized this new world which was similar to the Americas during the 16th century. Different strategies were used by both colonialists in the administration of these colonies. Consequently, different cultures emerged from these colonies. The aim of the English was to exploit the colonies’ resources. Therefore, they conquered local people in order to take control of their resources without paying attention to the people. On the other hand, the Spanish were interested in not just conquering their resources. They also wanted to entrench catholic faith among the locals (Gonzalez, 13).

The administration mode was another difference among the colonialists. The Spanish showed royal ruling because they used conquistadores. The English on the other hand relied on the rich nobles who helped in conquering individual colonies once they secured the monarchs’ charters (Gonzalez, 13). As of the 19th century, about 300 years of being under colonists, two cultural groups that opposed each other had emerged in the new world. These were the Spanish-Latin and Anglo-Saxon. Their respective colonies adopted different religious practices, different economic and political stances and different cultural lifestyles due to the influence of colonial masters. For this reason, Latin America is currently characterized by political exclusion and social inclusion while English America is currently characterized by racial and social intolerance (Gonzalez, 27).

Following the American Revolution, the Mexicans expected the North to offer them moral support so that they couldProofreading-Editing also have a revolution because they wanted to emulate the North in order to achieve freedom. For instance, Fray Servando de Mier was among those who were seeking for the independence of Mexico. He quoted Thomas Paine, an American while speaking against the monarchy. As such, it was expected that the U.S would play an important role of assisting the Latin American in its endeavor to achieve independence at the time of the Mexican Revolution (Gonzalez, 30). Instead of supporting Mexican Revolution to the maximum, the U.S made deals beneficial to it by remaining neutral. This surprised Latin Americans. Consequently, they benefited by gaining Florida after Adams-Onis pact of 1819 (Gonzales, 33).

After Mexican Revolution, patriots in the Latin American world expected the U.S to help in reconstruction after the war. The U.S again failed them because it did not sincerely intend to offer assistance to the colonies in the Latin America. This is because although they held talks, their motives were sinister. To them, Latin America was a resources’ source because they thought the population of the Americans would explode past its boarders at some point. Therefore, the Latin America colonies were coveted by the forefathers (Gonzalez, 32). Conseq
