Editorial Reviews

" America has always been somewhat dismissive of its southern neighbors. From President James Monroe's doctrine of 1823 through Teddy Roosevelt's ""big stick"" demonstration on San Juan Hill in 1898, U.S. policy toward Latin America has long been shaped by pure self-interest. And since the construction of the Panama Canal in 1914, the U.S. has intervened in the affairs of other countries in the hemisphere at least 34 times. THE U.S. IN LATIN AMERICA: YANKEE GO HOME turns a critical eye toward three recent incidents the invasions of Grenada and Panama and the occupation of Haiti. Respectively, they were ordered by Presidents Reagan, Bush and Clinton. In each case, the actions were justified as protecting American interests but were we ever really threatened, or were these incidents simply an example of America beating up on its neighbors? Extensive footage shows American forces in action, and foreign policy experts examine the stated goals and results of each episode. And hear from Dr. Robert A. Pastor, of Atlanta's Carter Center, who personally negotiated with Panamanian strongman Manuel Noriega and Haitian dictator Raoul Cedras."

We can thank Lyndon Johnson for the influx of Hispanics. The national celebration of their heritage began in 1968 in the country in 1968 when Congress decided to proclaim a week in September as National Hispanic Heritage Week. Now it has expanded to a whole month, from September 15 to October 15 in 1988, twenty years ago.

The fifteen was chosen because it is the anniversary of the independence of Costa, Rica, El Salvador, Honduras, Nicaragua, and Guatemala (where Robert Wrisley used to spend his winters). Mexico celebrates their independence on September 16 and Chile on September 18. Today, the 17th, the last day of the Tennessee Valley Fair, it is Hispanic Day to hear their music, watch their dances and learn about their culture in person. We even had a Hispanic woman to run for Mayor in the last city mayor's election. Needless to say, she did not win, and could not understand why. This is the South, and here we have more devotion to historical past of the Civil War and its after-effects.
