"I don’t identify as hispanic, I prefer latina or mestiza." Isn't "Chicanx" the more politically conscious term? The student's I've seen into decolonial self-identity, that study their history,seemed to identify as Chicano/Chicano Studies etc. It also ties the historic, anti-racism, political movements of "brown' peoples in the U.S. Doesn't "mestiza" focus on the mixed Euro aspect rather than decentering from that and identifying as "Chicano"/native?
