LatinX, Whiteness, Power Dynamics, Social Hierarchy, White Hegemony
In this literature review, I aim to explore the discourse on how whiteness engages with the LatinX community. The majority of the literature asserts that whiteness is hegemonized in the LatinX community. I address the claims made for how these two groups intersect, drawing on a variety of prevalent research and experts in the field. This review is situated within the social science field, with an emphasis on communications, psychology, and sociology. I explore the current power dynamics between these two groups through a variety of lenses including the assimilation and racial boundary paradigms. I also, address areas in the research that deviate from this assertion and possible directions for future research to expand on this intersection.
