My choice of pronouns is deliberate. “Which” instead of “whom” reflects the dehumanizing effect of this economic transformation on Mexican Americans within the Nueces Strip’s social milieu. 4.

I must point out, however, that although Mario García recognizes that the Mexican American leaders of Dr. Héctor García’s generation believed that they made great strides on behalf of civil rights during this period , he does not. In his mind their accomplishments were far more mixed. They mitigated some of the worst civil rights abuses against Mexican Americans, but failed to integrate them into the broader society. This “Mexican American Generation,” as Mario García calls them, failed to win their people equal economic, social, and political opportunity with other mainstream ethnic groups.
