Si La Raza no para a Nixon, Nixon aplastara a La Raza (Unless La Raza Stops Nixon, Nixon Will Stomp La Raza) is a political poster created by Andrew Zermeño, a graphic artist who produced political cartoons for Cesar Chavez’s United Farm Workers Union. The bilingual poster depicts President Richard Nixon stomping victoriously on La Raza (the race), a term used for citizens of Mexican and Chicano background. With this poster, Zermeño is urging farmworkers and those of Mexican and Chicano descent to fight for equal rights. Political activism was one factor that drew people together across racial lines. John Outterbridge met Zermeño when they were both engaged in activist work.
