National City


<p>Street cruising has been banned in National City for more than 30 years, but that may all change soon after the City Council repealed its 1992 ban this week, clearing the way for a final vote later this month.</p>

<p>Cruising was banned over residents' complaints of traffic and noise mostly along Highland Avenue south of Plaza Blvd. Lines of cars used to drive up and down the busy street, especially on weekends.</p>

<p>What’s the difference between Chicano, Latino, Mexican American, Hispanic, Chicanx or Latinx?</p>
<p>Historically, the question of identification for Mexicans left in the U.S. after the U.S.-Mexico War ended in 1848 as to who we are and how we identify ourselves remains a generational “problem” or “issue,” to date.</p>
<p>After 173 years, Chicanos remain a conquered, colonized, occupied, hunted, and powerless people due to this unresolved “problem” or “issue.”</p>
