This is a formal Request for Discussion on the creation of the Usenet 
group soc.culture.mexican.american. 
All comments regarding this proposal should be posted in news.groups. 
**This article will be cross-posted to soc.culture.mexican and 
soc.culture.latin-america.

=======================================================================

CHARTER
-------
Name:           soc.culture.mexican.american
Status:         unmoderated
Description:    Mexican-American/Chicano culture, politics, and society.

1) Purpose: 

Soc.culture.mexican.american will be a newsgroup dedicated to the
discussion of issues relating to the life, culture, history, and
politics of people born in the USA of Mexican descent.  Regardless of
its official name, this newsgroup will serve as a forum for all the
millions of people born in the US of Mexican heritage who identify
themselves as Chicano, Chicana, Mexican-American, Mexican, etc. The
newsgroup will provide a place for Mexican-Americans/Chicanos in
universities, industry, government, and elsewhere to exchange
information and to encourage better communication of ideas. It will
also be a place where others can learn more about this unique culture
and participate in discussions.
   
2) Background:

Although there currently exists related newsgroups such as
soc.culture.mexican, and soc.culture.latin-america, people born in
the US of Mexican descent can't always identify with these groups. A
group is needed where the interests are the issues that affect us in
the USA -- a group dedicated to our cultural, historical and
political growth. A number of electronic mailing lists exist to
provide a means of communication among Mexican-American/Chicano
college students. This newsgroup will be an extension to such lists
to encompass a wider audience beyond the university setting and to
foster communication among the different groups. Both the names
Chicano and Mexican-American seem recognized by people from different
ages, interests, and occupations, yet the name chosen for the draft
proposal is mexican.american since it seemed to be the more widely
accepted term. However, this charter is provisional and is subject to
the wishes of the people it will serve.

3) Posting Policy:

Soc.culture.mexican.american will be unmoderated. Contributors must
use their own judgment to decide the relevance of their articles to
the topics discussed in the newsgroup.  Discussions that are only
relevant to very few individuals should be moved to e-mail.
    
4) Language:

We expect both English and Spanish to be the dominant languages in
the newsgroup.  We expect people to show some unity and respect all
people who participate in the group, regardless of which language
they write in or whether they identify more with the term Chicano or
Mexican-American.  

=====================================================================

Comments: All comments regarding this proposal should be posted in
news.groups. If there is interest in this proposal, a Call for Votes
should follow in about 4 weeks.  Other questions or personal comments
can be directed to me.
