    One thought on “Justice: A Question of Race”

    1. I bought this from Roberto himself after having read The X in la Raza which I haven't found here yet. He highlights and gives a personal account of what really happens to Chicanos/Mexicanos/Latinos and other colored people everyday. He happened to be a reporter and good with the pen to tell the story.

    2. A great book narrating the injustice perpertrated in both Black and Mexican communities in Amerca from the Zoot suite days to the Low Rider Movement to modern street gangs in East L.A.
