Sample text

Introduction 19 The pernicious influence of coloniality in all of its expressions at different levels (global, national, local) as well as its Eurocentric knowledge structures have been reflected in the antisystemic movements around the world. For example, many leftist projects in Latin America, following the dependentista underestimation of racial/ethnic hierarchies, have reproduced white creole domination over non-European people within their organizations and when controlling state power. ” The conflicts between the Sandinistas and the Mizquitos in Nicaragua emerged as part of the reproduction of the old racial/colonial hierarchies (Vila 1992).

Once someone is identified as Puerto Rican, doors shut and an army of stereotypes mobilizes. In the Euro-American imaginary, Puerto Ricans are dangerous, lazy, and criminal or simply opportunistic people that take advantage of welfare programs. Puerto Ricans face discrimination in the spaces of everyday life in banks, stores, housing, and so on that white Americans take for granted. ” It affects peoples’ abilities to get a loan or a mortgage, open a business, get a job, buy a house, get a promotion, get an increase in salary, get a license, get a degree, get a discount, and so on.

The notion of entanglement is crucial here and is close to Wallerstein’s notion of historical systems understood as “integrated networks of economic, political and cultural processes” (1991a: 230). The moment multiple hierarchical relationships are considered to be entangled, according to Kontopoulos, or integrated, according to Wallerstein, autonomous logics or domains do not remain. The notion of a single logic runs the risk of reductionism, which is contrary to complex systems. The notion of multiple logics runs the risk of dualism.
