Mexican prejudice damaging to Mexican pride
Where arc you my sisters,
In this strange world?
When I speak,
I hear only my words.
I am of the old,
Customs, traditions and beliefs
Let me know where you are
It would be a relief.
So many are different now,
Try to be other than Mexican,
I am not ashamed
Of who I am.
1 will fight,
For the true Mexicans,
F;or no one can change me,
Try if you can.
Do you see that you are lost?
, You embarrass us!
Say you are of else,
You can’t say you’re us.
I write this in English
Because that’s all you speak.
You don’t care for Spanish,
But with others that’s all they seek
You may look like me,
But I know I’m true.
With pride I can say Mexican 100
I know you can’t because you are
You can’t hide who you are,
But just pretend.
We won’t acknowledge you,
As sister or friend.

What’s All This Identity Crisis?
Damn! How much il hurts,
to be a majado, an illegal, an
an undocumented, a Mexican
bean, a wetback.
Damn! How much it hurts,
to be a cholo, a stuit suitor,
a greaser, a spic, a pachuco,
Damn! How much it hurls,
to be a coconut, a back-stabber,
a sellout, a whitewashed,
a token, a Hispanic.
Damn! How much it hurts,
to be a Mexican, an American,
a Mexican-American, a Chicano,
a Latino, a Chicano-Latino.
Damn! 1 low much it hurls,
to be all these for my Raza.
But never a HUMAN!

\ The Residence Halls at UNL have
X always been the fun way to live right
\ in the center of campus life and now
\ we'll pay you for it.
I I There are three ways to make
t \\ money when you decide to live in
f I the halls next year:
•/ • THE RECRUITING BONUS: All
/ current residence hall students are eligible
I to receive a $100.00 bonus for each
i \ current off-campus student that they
jg recruit to live in the residence halls next
year. You can build your own community
of friend? on your residence floor and get
paid for it
• THE RETURNING STUDENT DIS
COUNT: Each current hall resident who
chooses to return and each 'recruited' student
will have $80.00 deducted from their housing
• THE RECRUITING CONTEST: There
will be prize given to the top three students
who recruit the most off-campus students to
live in the halls:
Grand Prize (min. of S students
recruited): FREE ROOM AND BOARD
contract for the year.
(Valued at $2,995.00)

far cheaper than off-campus living.
