The Mexicans journey towards achieving their freedom to civil rights encountered many challenges because they were restricted from accessing proper education, healthcare, and Blacks were living in extreme poverty. Blacks were treated with suspicion and were subjected to police brutality and assaults. Everything changed in 1960 when J.F. Kennedy became the President of the United States and made Latino an important voting bloc. Through their persistent fighting for recognition, black organizations have achieved so much progress in the last few decades. Chicanos have produced some scary human rights activities that have been vocal throughout history. They demanded recognition of African traditions and roots in Mexico and did not rest until some important non-discriminatory policies were enacted.
