Huevos y la Mujer Latina: The De-masculinization of the Macho. Julián Camacho-Segura. ISBN: 978-0-9796457-4-7 $19.95.
Huevos is a politically incorrect articulation of the plight of Latino men in this era of so called gender equity and diversity. The author contends that while White women have made progress, Latinos, particularly Mexican men, have been entirely ignored; they have become the epitome of the poor working class. Ambitious and upward mobile Latinas often look down upon Latinos, and particularly Mexican males' lackluster economic success, preferring other males. Latino males have been left out of any gender or racial discussion, yet suffer the negative highs and negative lows of social conditions: Latino men have the highest work related injuries and death rates, high incarceration rates, the highest poverty even though they have the highest labor participation rates and high school dropout rates.
