“Blaxicans” And Other Reinvented Americans: An Unlikely Guide To Preserving America’s Culture

Richard Rodriguez’s essay, “Blaxicans” and Other Reinvented Americans, delivers an interesting take on the state of culture in America. Rodriguez, the son of Mexican parents, asserts that racial terms such as “white” and “black” are irrelevant now due to race-mixing in America. But perhaps the most interesting part of the essay is when Rodriguez suggests that “instead of adopting the Canadian model of multiculturalism, America might begin to imagine the Mexican alternative–that of a mestizaje society.” In this statement, Rodriguez implies that Mexico’s treatment of separate races is better than the multiculturalist ideas of Canada. It is evident that the “mestizaje society” Rodriguez speaks of may… Keep Reading

An Army, Not An Audience

If your faith isn’t directing you to plant vineyards and guard them with the sword, it might not be faith at all. If you’ve ever nurtured an apple crop through to harvest, enduring heat waves, hailstorms, coddling moth infestations, and property taxes, only to see a family in a brand new SUV stealing apples during a pick-your-own visit, you might have some sense for why I write about God a lot. I know some people proceed straight to the justice question when they are wronged. They lawyer up. They make complaints. They take solace in a withering Yelp review. Me?… Keep Reading
