What makes one a Latino/a?
Why does it matter?
This lecture addresses what characteristics makes a person a Latino/a, and which ones do not, for purposes of positive public policy administration. Issues of whether or not one participates in a traditional Latino/a culture, has a traditional name, or speaks Spanish, Portuguese, or one of their dialects are considered, along with some other proposed features of Latino/a identity. An ethical analysis of Latino/a identity is provided, one that is the best available answer to address various moral issues we face today.
Dr. Angelo Corlett is one of the most influential philosophers working on questions of race and ethnic identity. Corlett’s book, Race, Racism, and Reparations (2003) offers a detailed account of Latino/a Identity. In his book, Heirs of Oppression(2010), Corlett offers a compelling argument in favor of reparations for African Americans and American Indians. In addition to his work on race and ethnicity, Dr. Corlett is an accomplished scholar who has published work on moral philosophy, social and political philosophy, philosophy of religion, Plato, philosophy of law, and epistemology. Dr. Corlett has published 8 books and more than 100 articles.
