Transcript MR. PERALES: Yes, the movement started recently in the Texas Legislature providing for compulsory teaching of the Spanish language in the primary grades of the public schools of Teiaa, and the bill approved by the Texas Senate on February 11th authorizing a total of 100 students from other Pan-American nations to attend state-supported colleges tuition free, are two decided steps in that direction. CHAIRMAN: Can you think of any other measures that the State of Texas might take further to strengthen the bonds of friendship with the peoples of our sister republics to the south? MR. PERALES: Yes, I do, Mr. Ramirez. There is something that, in my judgment, and, in fact, in the judgment of all persona of Mexican extraction, is extremely important if the efforts of our Federal Government to strengthen the bonds of friendship between the people of the United States and the peoples of the Hispanic^American Republics are to be really effective and successful. We believe that one thing that will go a long ways toward accomplishing this end is by the Anglo-American people ( here I include those of teutonic, Celtic, and other Caucasian extractions) of the United States resolving to cease to consider and to treat the inhabitants of the United States of Hispanic descent as their inferiors. There is too much discrimination going on now, and has been for year*, against persons of Mexican descent. In many towns and cities of our State children of Mexican extraction are denied adequate school facilities, workmen of Mexican descent are not emplyed when an Anglo-American can be found to do the work, and when workmen of Mexican extraction are employed they do not receive the same wages that would be paid to an Anglo-American worker. Persons of Mexican lineage are denied service in various public places such as restaurants, theaters, barber shops, etc., operated by Anglo-Americans. I could cite many concrete cases covering a wide field of activities in which persons of Mexican descent are discriminated against. NatuEally, such katiiWKfm discrimination handicaps our people and renders it impossible for them to progress and to be happy as our fellow-citizens and friends of Mixxkx Anglo-American a-sccrr
