Question and answer
• What legislation meant to alleviate prejudicial boundaries has been enacted with Hispanics? How did Hispanics promote this legislation?
Hispanic Americans are making contributions to American culture at all levels of society, including U.S. government, sports and popular culture, America.gov reports. [ [ ?Language might most dramatically reflect the influence of Hispanics on American life,? the site observes. According to author and journalist Richard Rodriguez, a Mexican-American commentator for PBS, Spanish is heard around
the U.S., and the U.S. ?might be home to the world?s fifth-largest Spanish-speaking population, after Mexico, Spain, Argentina and Colombia.? According to 2007 figures issued by the U.S. Office of Personnel Management, Hispanics continue to hold positions in U.S. government in greater numbers: ?the number of Hispanics among the nation's civil servants grew by more than 1,000, to more than 126,000.? And the major political parties in the U.S., ?judging by their outreach efforts to attract the Hispanic vote, are well aware of the growth in the country's Hispanic population,? according to America.gov. Hispanic culture has also been incorporated into American popular culture. Performers such as Carlos Santana, Gloria Estefan and Salma Hayek have left their mark on American entertainment, and Hispanic athletes have achieved success in American sports, especially baseball. Mexican foods such as tacos and burritos are just as common as American staples like hamburgers and hot dogs. Even holidays, such as Cinco de Mayo, have crossed the border and are widely celebrated around the U.S. .html ] ]
