Ana Maria Ospina Publishes in El País on the Myth of Racial Democracy

El País, Spain's daily newspaper, has published the article "El mito de la democracia racial" by UMass Political Science PhD Graduate Ana Maria Ospina. Ospina argues that the idea that Colombia is a mestizo nation and that Colombian culture is the happy result of a mixture of cultures prevents critical reflection on the inequalities generated by the historical exploitation of ethnic communities.
