"Vato"


My Chicano Spanish is getting rusty but I think that means something like "Dude" .R.F.K wearing the badge of The U.F.W ...remember the grape-pickers strike like Mum and you'll know who they are.She belongs to the support group as migrant workers in Calif.in particular suffer awful conditions. Their leader Cesar Chavez was a Ghandian pacifist .His fellow founder Dolores Huerta is still alive and a hero of mine.You can learn a lot in Gary Soto's novels ..most for teenagers .I had most of them and unlike English literature I could identify much better with them .
